The Godmother by Carrie Adams

This book took me by surprise. I was expecting another light chick lit book and this was not one. While the premise has all the makings of that genre (the main character is godmother to four kids but has no family of her own), it ends up being much deeper. The book deals with stalking, marital infidelity, infertility, miscarriage, death and other deeper subjects. The ending was even better than I expected -- not perfectly tied in a bow.

I have had so little time to read lately, but I think our lives are going to settle down a little, for awhile, anyhow. I have been able to listen to books, luckily.

Eragon - I wasn't too far into this when I realized I have already seen the movie. Oh well, I listened to all 20 something hours of it. It was good enough to finish the book, but not good enough to finish the series. It's incredible that the author was only 20 when this was published!

Feed - This was really excellent. I had no idea what it was about, just downloaded it on a whim. My favourite line is, when they are visiting the filet mignon farm and seeing them grow with blood being pumped in etc., the main character says he likes to know where his food comes from. LOL

Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver

I don't mean to be on a Barbara Kingsolver kick, but after reading Animal Vegetable Miracle, I realized I had started Prodigal Summer before and not finished it. It's really a delightful novel, set in southern Appalachia and revolving around a group of neighbors and relatives. The two old neighbors who are bickering over various issues are hilarious. And there's a lot of info about the ecology of that region woven in.

I should probably be doing something else right now.

#21 The Supreme Courtship by Christopher Buckley

Buckley writes amusing satires, and this book is no different. Not quite as biting and humorous as Thank You For Smoking, it, nonetheless, is still amusing and fun to read. It is perhaps more amusing if you know a bit about the Supreme Court Justices and their fobiles. So, maybe, reading Toobin's The Nine would be a good primer.

How to Be Lost by Amanda Eyre Ward

A family with a host of secrets completely falls apart when five-year-old Ellie goes missing. Years later, the family is still struggling with the emotions of losing a child. I read this in one day -- not only is it a quick read but I was intrigued by the characters.

I didn't love this when I read it, (but thought it was good) but it's sure stuck with me since then and I think about it in various situations -- like when I have to wear a headset at work and am struggling to talk to a customer with the background conversations happening in my ear. : Seriously, I think of Feed everytime.

#52 Revenge of the Spellmans by Lisa Lutz
I really like her humor, though I know it's not for everyone. The third in her series about Isabel Spellman, a private investigator, and her whacked out family and friends.

#53 Wrack and Ruin by Don Lee
Lyndon Song is a Brussels sprout farmer in CA, estranged from his brother, and once famous sculptor who has kept his fame a secret from everyone in his small town. This was good, but I think my enjoyment was affected by knowing that Revenge of the Spellmans was up next! For book club in a few weeks..

A Thread of Grace by Mary Doria Russell

This was a historical fiction novel about about Jewish people in Italy during WWII. After loving The Sparrow so much, I wanted to read another book by this author but I have to say, this one did not measure up. The writing was still great and it was a good subject but there were so many characters and we never really got to get close to any of them to really care enough -- I mean the stuff that happens is awful but it seemed so impersonal . . . I wanted to feel the story more.

Once again, I think the reader of this book made the difference from it being a good book to being a great book. I don't know if I would have liked it as much had I only read it.

Elizabeth and Her German Garden by Elizabeth Von Arnim

Though the layout of this reproduction is ugly in the extreme, the book (text) itself is wonderful. I love the author's sense of humor. My favorite are the descriptions of the dour governess:

"Why does your governess look so gloomy? When I see her at luncheon I always imagine she must have just heard that somebody is dead. But she can't hear that every day."

". . . the strain of continually having to set an example must surely be very great. It is much easier, and often more pleasant, to be a warning than an example . . "

The funny observations and descriptions of her family, friends, and her luscious garden are a joy to read. For anyone that loved Enchanted April -- I recommend this book as well.

Slumdog Millionaire: A Novel by Vikas Swarup

It probably helps that I haven't seen the movie yet. Other reviews seem to point to it being nothing like the movie and perhaps not as good. On its own, this is a good book. Ram is a poor waiter when he wins the top prize on a quiz show. Because he is so poor, the contest sponsors assume he has cheated. A lawyer comes to his aid and he relays how his life experience's helped him to answer the questions. I had a little trouble keeping track of the timeline because his stories are not in chronological, but rather question order. I am more intrigued to see the movie now.

#6 Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt

I read this book totally wrong. I assumed that it was fiction, a novel, and read and critiqued it (harshly) as such. I thought, "Man, the narrative arch is practically missing. There are so many tangents and irrelevant characters. What poor organization of a novel! This needs to be much, much tighter and follow the plot more closely."

Then I finished it and read the back of the book (I never read the back before reading the book - I like surprises), and realized it's nonfiction. A "true-crime" book.

I would have gone into it totally differently if I'd known that. And probably would have appreciated it and enjoyed it a lot more.

One thing's for certain, though: I now want to visit Savannah.

We just saw the movie last night -- it was great--though very intense and violent. I saw in the credits afterwards that it was based on a novel and was thinking to read it.

I think you will enjoy the book. I rented the movie because I am so far back in the queue at the library that I will probably get the 10-year anniversary edition. The Blockbuster worker was quite pleased with my rental choice.

Several reviewers found Julie to be whiny in this book. While I can see what they mean, I am not sure if I totally agree. I think that complaining is part of her humor and I can relate. What I can't relate to is wanting to eat any of the food from Julia Child's "Mastering the Art of French Cooking". Gak. What inspires people to want to eat brains, kidneys and livers? It bothered me that Child was very dismissive of Powell because she (Powell) seemed to have a lot of admiration for her (Child).
I just put this on my to read list. Sounds interesting. Despite the brains, kidneys and livers
