message 21: by Mary Todd (new)

Mary Todd (marytodd) | 924 comments Prodigal Summer is my favorite book right after To Kill a Mockingbird!


message 22: by Alycia (new)

Alycia (alyciac) Haven't read the Traveling Pants series yet ... would it be good for advanced readers of 10 and 11 years old? Or is it really more of a teenage read?

The first one would be okay. I mean they are not bad but they do get into sex and things of that nature, so I guess it would depend on what you think is okay for them to read. The books say 12+

I really liked Prodigal Summer also - Kingslover's discpritions of nature were so poetic. I immediatley felt a connection with each of her characters - I laughed and cried with each of them.

I have nieces 10 years old and I told my sister the same thing Aprile said - just depends on how advanced they are and how much they know about being 16 year old girls and all the things the can encounter!

message 35: by Aprile (new)

Aprile (aprileb) I wasn't a huge fan of the Vampire Academy book, however the series gets better with each book!

Are you going to continue the series? What about the Uglies series?

I wasn't going to continue on with the Vampire Academy but I will read on since you said they get better. Right now I am re-reading New Moon and can't put it down! I can hardly wait to read the next two in that series! Uglies I do plan on reading the whole series. Sometimes when I put a little distance between series books I stay alittle more interested.

Deb 36. The Camel Club


message 38: by Deb (new)

Deb Not counting this one but I just finished New Moon for the second time! I liked it more this time around! Loved the scenes in Italy with the Volterra - I hope the movie lives up to my expectations - which are high!


message 39: by Deb (new)

Deb 37. Lost Souls by Lisa Jackson


message 40: by Deb (new)

Deb 38. Tunnels by Roderick Gordon & Brian Williams


message 41: by Deb (new)

Deb 39. Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah - I immediatley connected with the characters; I could relate to the time frame I was teenager in the 70's - the book made me laugh and cry!

40. The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane by Katherine Howe - I had very high hopes for this book and have to admit I was alittle disappointed in the story -- not enough suspense and I wanted more exploration of the house and the book!!


message 42: by Deb (new)

Deb 41. Finger Lickin Fifteen by Janet Evanovich - another funny, sexy adventure for Stephanie - a little disapointing at the end but who cares Janet always makes me laugh!


message 43: by Deb (new)

Deb 42. Duma Key by Stephen King - I loved this book; supernatural ghost story; always with weird twists!


message 44: by Deb (new)

Deb 43. The Big House by George Howe Colt - I think I would have appreciated this book more if my family had a summer home - I just could not relate to the Boston life style.


message 45: by Deb (new)

Deb 44. The Swallows of Kabul by Yasmina Khadra


message 46: by Deb (new)

Deb 45. The Surgeon by Tess Gerritsen - a great medical thriller; complex characters and story line - couldn't put it down!


message 47: by Deb (new)

Deb 46. Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer


message 48: by Deb (new)

Deb 47. The Reader by Bernhard Schlink an unputdownable book; this story will stay with me for a very long time. Now I need to see the movie.
