Feedback Friday - Latest Book?

I am reading Reconstructing Amelia this week and I have to say that mid-way through it I expected it to be more gripping...meh.

What's a good book you've read lately?


  1. We just read A Year of Biblical Womanhood for book club and it spurred the best discussion we've ever had.http://trophyw.blogspot.com/2014/01/a-year-of-biblical-womanhoodhow.html
    I read Wonder (about a kid w/ severe facial deformites going to public school for the first time) a few weeks ago and really loved it and picked it when I host next month.

  2. I need a good book badly - will be checking back here to get ideas! Last weekend I watched a documentary called 51 Birch Street. it has stayed with me all week, much like a good novel. A month or so ago I finished A Reliable Wife and The Namesake. Both I found at goodwill for around a dollar.

  3. I checked backed to add some fabulous books to my list and I got zilch. Maybe everyone is working on eating healthy and exercising and no one has time to read:)

  4. The last couple of books I have read were Her Fearful Symmetry and The Secret Life of Bees. Both amazing books. Especially Her Fearful Symmetry. Great read, very haunting. This book stayed with me for a long time. I cried when I finished reading it! lol

  5. I recently read the breathing series ~ Reason to breath, Barely Breathing and Out of Breath by Rebecca Donovan. Such easy, quick, addictive reads. They are considered "teen" reads, but I still liked them. Think teen love story with lots of obstacles ~ kind of pulled me in like Twilight ~ minus the vampires. Then I read "Night" by Elie Wiesel a holocaust memoir book. Such a sad and powerful story. I would definitely recommend this one (Jen ~ I think you have already read this one). Currently I am reading "The Bright Forever" by Lee Martin. I'm about 1/2 way through. It is about a 9 year old girl who was abducted and I am assuming murdered. The story is being told by people in and around her life. So far it is a compelling read, but it is not as intense as some books I've read and I am not reading it voraciously.

  6. Ok, let me update... I finished "The Bright Forever" and unless you want to be depressed, I don't recommend it. I didn't find any of the characters likable and while the story was compelling, it lacked the intensity one would expect in an abduction/murder story. It was kind of ho hum......definitely better books out there.
