Random titles (25 titles)
These are books I found recommended by friends, reviews seemed interesting, found at garage sales, or the title caught my eye while browsing at the library. I have just joined a book club, so those selections will be included as well.

Cover ArtThe tyrant's daughter
by Carleson, J. C.
This book was interesting at first, as it described the cultural shock of moving to the US from the girl's perspective. But then the book quickly wrapped up with the mother's negotiating behind the scenes with various governments & agencies.   posted Jun 29, 2014 at 1:44PM

Cover ArtPioneer girl : a novel
by Nguyen, Bich Minh.
To my surprise, I loved this book. I was impressed with how the author described the sights, sounds & smells of a scene. She'd leave me with impressions of what was going on, without actually describing what was going on as she told the story.   posted Jun 29, 2014 at 1:40PM

Cover ArtTrue grit
by Portis, Charles.
This is such a great story! To quote another reviewer, "This is a gripping book about the single-minded pursuit of justice in the 1870s, written in the amazing voice of a deadpan, plain-speaking prose of a woman looking back at the events some 30-40 years later."   posted Apr 11, 2011 at 11:17AM

Cover ArtDewey : the small-town library cat who touched the world
by Myron, Vicki.
Charming tale (pun accidental!) about a small town librarian. A pleasant, quick read about community & relationships.   posted Mar 23, 2011 at 8:14AM

Cover ArtShanghai girls : a novel
by See, Lisa.
I thoroughly enjoyed the book - at first. Shanghai is not a city who's history is well known to me & I was fascinated by the description of life through the eyes of Pearl. But part way thru the book I tired of her and her attitude towards life. I could barely finish reading the book. However, our book club had a great conversation, as we'd all reacted differently to the sisters. Very thought provoking!   posted Feb 8, 2011 at 9:28PM
