A fiction tale about the war in Iraq. Kind of a mystery, with a lot of horrible truth in it. Interesting, and easyto read.
I didn’t know much about the 1830s; it was interesting to learn about Jackson and his time.
An English gentleman has trouble with his kids while developing a relationship with a Pakistani shopkeeper. A fun book; well written.
Kelly takes a grueling job at a chain clothing store, after losing her job as a journalist.
Lots of food and wine references in this smart legal thriller. I recommend the whole series.
An English woman falls in love with a Parisian man. Delightful writing includes lots about food, lots about Paris, and shows the two cultures and how they come together.
Really fabulous! As good, if not better,than The Glass Castle. Author embroiders what she knows about her grandmother’s life, in New Mexico and Arizona.
Practical guide for students and others first starting out in their own place.
I really enjoy these present day mysteries set in Venice. The presence of the past and the detailsof the city are evoked so well.
Running a deli in Brooklyn turns out to be a lot harder than it looks.
The popular forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan series, this one written for teens. The heroine is Temperance’s niece.
I’ve never read anything quite like it. It’s exactly what it says: first chapters of a story rewritten each time. The information is repeated, but it’s not tedious or boring. The different angle keeps it interesting.
True story from 1600s Ireland that inspired Robert Louis Stevenson’s Kidnapped.
I like how Sparks shows people in a different light than other authors. This one gives a soldier’s perspective.
Scary look at earthquakes in the northwest. The anecdotes at the beginning are very interesting; the technical part is harder to follow.
I fall asleep when reading it! Way too many characters.
Scientist David Suzuki takes a fascinating look at the Douglas Fir.
EVERYONE recommended it, so I had to read it. So far it’s got me gripped.
