Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See. I loved this book! It gives so much detail into the Chinese culture including arranged marriages and footbinding that was just fascinating and had a wonderful story with incredible characters! Read it!
Fablehaven by Brandon Mull. I found this one on a list of "what do I read now that Harry Potter is done?" and really enjoyed it! It was juvenile fiction but you all know I have a soft spot for that. It was different and I liked that! The characters and overall premise were very original rather than copycats (rather than how I feel about Christopher Paolini books)
Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult. Okay, I devoured this one in the car on the way home from Colorado! I literally read this one in less than 24 hours. It had me hooked. I won't give anything away but it was definitely a page-turner and emotional. I didn't completely like the ending but she sure knows how to create a controversy. I enjoyed reading this book but it was hard to read this book. Does that make sense? And I didn't quite like it as much as My Sister's Keeper.
Next on my list...
These is my Words -if I ever can find it for my S&S book club!
Pope Joan -now that I have my library card!
Okay, let's be realistic, The Host is next because I couldn't resist and got it at the library!!!!!
