A BRIEF REVIEW OF EACH BOOK I HAVE TAKEN OUT OF THE LIBRARY RECENTLY
- •Don't Call Me Katie Rose by Lenore Mattingly WeberNot a recent rental but still distinct in my memory. I rented this book every time I went to the library from age 9-13. Perfect mix of preteen angst and sophisticated "adult" subject matter
- •All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony DoerrBeautiful World War Two love story!
- •Where Women are Kings by Christie WatsonA book about biracial parents who adopt an older child with a troubled past. Highly emotionally manipulative and not totally realistic. I can't get the characters, who made me love them, out of my head.
- •Beautiful Eyes by Paul Ethan AustinA memoir of a father about his daughter with Down syndrome. One of the most pleasantly uplifting books I've read in years. I recommend it to every person who likes happiness. Please read it.
- •Let The Devil Sleep by John VerdunThe sequel to a different thriller I hadn't read. Maybe that was the problem. Maybe it just is a wordy book with an unimaginative plot, whiny characters and a frustrating resolution.
