A Far-Off Place by Laurens van der Post

A Far-Off Place by Laurens van der Post. My favorite movie growing up - "A Far Off Place" - was based on this book and his novel A Story Like The Wind.

"The Song of the Dodo," David Quammen  One of the most interesting books I've ever read.

The song of the dodo : island biogeography in an age of extinctions David Quammen ; maps by Kris Ellingsen.

For my historical fiction book I read 'The Book Thief'. I really enjoyed this book. I think there were many unique aspects all throughout this book. One of these aspects is the fact that the narrator is a mystery all throughout the book (I solved this mystery very  quickly).

Good Reads: Spring Reading List

The Book Thief, Markus Zusak, is a historical fiction novel set in Nazi Germany. Told from the perspective of a personified version of Death, The Book Thief is a outstanding and unique story that shows what it's like to be alone and afraid.

Crazy Salad: Some Things About Women by the wonderful Nora Ephron

Crazy Salad: Some Things About Women (including a selection from Scribble, Scribble)

Mockingjay. Wow. I don't know if I've ever cried that much over a book (the entire series really). To be fair, I didn't read the HP books until after the movies.

‘Mockingjay’: The Hunger Games Finale Review Revue

Book Suzanne Collins' Mockingjay, the final book in the Hunger Games series. It was an interesting series and some of the better YA I've read, although there's a lot of exposition.

By far, the best book I've read this year! It has it all: Intrigue, Love, Murder...all set in the 1930s/1940s on a traveling circus.

Water for Elephants - Sara Gruen. Slightly different from the film in a way that is great. If you like circus things, this is a tops read.

This gorgeous novel can almost be categorized as literary fiction, which too many readers dismiss as inaccessible. Don't make that mistake. This Gatsby-esque novel pulls several shocking plot twists, and I definitely didn’t see that ending coming.

Rules of Civility

Rules of Civility: A Novel by Amor Towles: historical fiction set in New York City where the story gave me a vision of the intersection of working women and the world-weary wealthy! Better than The Great Gatsby!
