I would love to join this year! Hmmm, it's tough to set a goal. I will try to read 50 books. That feels doable for me. I am famous though for starting books and not finishing!!


#1 The Deep Blue Good-By by John D. MacDonald

This is the first in the Travis McGee novels. I've been nagged for years to read this series by relatives who live in South Florida. I'm glad I finally picked up the book. Great light reading for a cold winter night.

In that case, I think you would like Into the Forest by Jean Hegland. Same sort of premise of LAWKI, but a more mature book/main characters. I liked it more than LAWKI myself.

Expecting #2 in May 2013!

Frida's Bed by Slavenka Drakulic

This is a novel but based on the life of the painter Frida Kahlos. Though the story was amazing (her life and what she went through) the writing was very strange -- it kept changing point of views, not of different people but from third person to first person and past to present. It's translated from Croatian so I'm not sure if that's where the confusion is from or if it was written in this strange way.

I finished A Flaw in the Blood by Stephanie Barron. It is a mystery set in the Victorian era just after the death of Prince Albert, and imagines an alternate reason for his death. Queen Victoria narrates every third chapter or so. It was a quick, enjoyable read, and I give it a solid 3 1/2 stars out of 5.

Inspiring to say the least, for me anyway

i am so glad to hear a good review of this book. its next on my list.

i just reserved these 2 books at the library. i need to figure out how to read during the day if im going to meet my goals this year. the internet doesnt help! lol!

I am working on book #1: I Dreamed of Africa. So far so good.

#2 Wishful Drinking by Carrie Fisher

Pretty fun read actually. Carrie Fisher is funny in a dark AA/NA kind of way. She cracked me up a couple times. I was drawn in by the cover and enjoyed the book in a light tabloidish book sort of way.

3. Bitter is the New Black by Jen Lancaster

About half way into this book, I was thinking that Lancaster was a real witch. She seemed more likable in the first book by her that I read (Bright Lights, Big Ass). However, as I continued on I remembered why I appreciate her biting sarcasm and wit. So I still want to go out for margaritas with her. But I am a little more scared of her.

"The Undomestic Goddess" by Sophie Kinsella

This was the perfect book for me today when I'm feeling miserable with a cold. It was so funny and enjoyable to read. About a high-powered lawyer who runs away when she makes a huge mistake and ends up a housekeeper. When she gets cleared at the law firm and offered her dream job as partner, she has to decide if she wants to go back.

1. The Glass Castle (Jeannette Walls)
This was difficult for me to read, as I am overly sensitive to the struggles of others. Some of the things the parents did and said to their children were absolutely unthinkable. I was left wondering if they really did think they were helping their children by allowing them to struggle, or if they were just too lazy and selfish to take care of them and used that as an excuse. It did make me thankful for what I have and sort of gave me a kick in the pants to start helping people. And it was definitely a page-turner--I couldn't wait to see how the kids turned out as adults.

I'd love to join. I lurked on this thread last year to get book ideas, but I never posted. I will sign up to read 109 books in 2009.

So far:
1. The Historian (Kostova) - on the recommendation of this thread! It was hard to put down. Very engrossing.

2. Garden Spells (Sarah Addison Allen) - light, quirky, thoroughly enjoyable. I will watch for her next book. Her latest book, The Sugar Queen was also light, quirky and thoroughly enjoyable.

3. Errands (Judith Guest) - this one was in my bag of paperbacks. Published in 1997, a very good character study, kind of sad. (A family where the Dad dies of a brain tumor.)

Now off to the library website to order the latest recommendations from this thread.

She has a new book coming out this year.

2. The Pirate's Daughter by Margaret Cezair-Thompson

I came across this as a Celestial Seasoning's book club pick. It was boring. They should stick to tea.

I loved it too! And I don't care for most chick lit, but this was lovely (and not just because I'm a lawyer...).

#2 - The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett

This was a delightful little novella, sort of a fantasy/fairy tale, about what would happen were the Queen, out with her corgis one day, to come across a mobile library and feel obliged to borrow a book. She becomes an ever more voracious reader, to the chagrin of her minders. I don't think I'd heard of Bennett before, but his writing is charming and literate, and while the story is amusing, I found it also gave me lots to think about.

2. Shadow Kiss (Vampire Academy, Book 3) - Richelle Mead

Vampires/Paranormal/YA - I tore through this book! I really like this series, and this was a good installment, although the ending was really disappointing. I can't believe I have to wait until September for the next one, argh! (I have a more detailed review in the Good Reads link in my siggie, but it seems like not many people here read paranormal so I'm saving space ).

1. One Foot In the Grave - Jeaniene Frost 2. Shadow Kiss - Richelle Mead

#3 Let It Snow: Three Holiday Romances
John Green, Maureen Johnson, Lauren Myracle

Rating: 3.5/5

Summary: Three interconnected holiday stories of love from three bestselling teen authors.

Review: I wasn't quite ready to let the holidays go, so I actually put this on hold at the library after Christmas. I felt a little weird cracking it open in my living room now completely devoid of holiday decorations. But I'm glad I did.

These are quick, fun stories that made me laugh out loud several times—not a common occurrence when I'm reading. I loved the sarcastic humor of the characters, especially in the first two stories. The main character in the last story was a little whiny for my taste, but that was kind of the whole point of the story in the first place so I got over it.

I already had John Green's Paper Towns on my to-read list, but I loved Maureen Johnson's writing so I'm trying to pick one of her books to add. Maybe Devilish?

Expecting #2 in May 2013!

Well, it always feels weird to start again at 1.... Last year I tried to read a little less and I think I succeeded (I know, I know, a less slothful person would go and check the 2008 and 2007 threads.). I've thought about doing the same for this year -- I even thought about saying I'd just do one book a week.... I'm not sure I can really do that, though.....At any rate, I'm starting the new year with three books fairly different from each other:

#1 Blindspot by Jane Kamensky and Jill Lepore
The professional review on Amazon didn't have much good to say about this one, but I enjoyed it -- and the 18 out of 23 of the "normal people" reviews gave it 4 or 5 stars. Set in 1764, two main characters are a portraitist from Scotland and a young girl (from a "good family") in Boston who has fallen into ruin. Written by two historians. I feel a little sheepish that I liked it when the critics didn't, so I won't recommend it wholeheartedly....

#2 Fine Just the Way It Is by Annie Proulx
Collection of short stories set in Wyoming. By the author of Brokeback
Mountain (which was also a short story). Very diverse.

#3 Shroud for a Nightingale by P.D. James
Another in the Adam Dalgliesh series. I'm liking them again -- I think something about this one was a bit more British mystery-ish to me, and that helped. I realized that I long for a character list a la Agatha Christie, to keep everyone straight.

#6 My Horizontal Life by Chelsea Handler. Laugh out loud funny, pretty shocking, a bit draggy toward the end. There is only so much you can read about someone's sex life, and she did try a bit too hard for laughs from time to time. 3 stars.

#1. The Hunger Games (Collins)

An excellent book. Well written page turner. Bound to make you think and feel, and I will definitely be rereading it. I am very happy I bought it, and I won't be able to wait until 2010 for the sequel!!

It is set in the futuristic totalitarian society. 12 districts of the country have to send one boy and one girl (ages 12 to 18) selected via lottery to take part in The Hunger Games. The point of the games is to punish the districts for the uprising by making a show of youth killing each other to survive. The whole show is turned into a reality TV program "celebrated" all across the country. The plot revolves around a girl who steps in to take the place of her little sister who was chosen via the lottery. It is considered almost certain death, as to win the game all the other 23 contestants have to die. It didn't end how I wanted it to end, but it makes sense the way it's written. If you haven't read it - you really should. There is romance, there is a definite food for thought, it reads easy, but carries a heavy message.


P.S. The only thing I would change about the book is names. The main character's name is Katniss, there is a boy Gale, another one is Peeta, bleh.

P.P.S. I always feel a little sad finishing a good book.

New endeavor coming soon...

#3 Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay

A story about the tragic events that happened in Paris of July 1942. The French rounded more then 10,000 French Jews and sent them to Velodrome d'Hiver in Paris in atrocious conditions. From there they sent them to internment camps and then onto Auschwitz.

The book is not a historical account of what happened (as the author admits in the book). It is about a fictional girl Sarah, who when hearing the police knocking on her door at night, hides her little brother in a secret cupboard and locks him in there, promising to come back later for him.

The book alternates each chapter between a young Sarah in 1942, and Julia, an American living in France in 2002, who happens to be investigating the roundup and how their lives are intertwined.

(naking)
I really liked this book. I am ashamed to admit that I knew nothing about the round up in Velodrome d'Hiver in Paris though. It was very emotional to read about the round up and the camps, but I felt they were neccessary for the story to be in there. I personally loved reading the chapters about Sarah versus Julia....I found myself rushing through Julia's parts to get back to Sarahs story. Towards the end book it did become somewhat weak and predictable. Irregardless, I still really reccommend the book.
