Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society - I loved this book! I enjoyed reading the story through letters; that was very creative and worked very well. There was much to learn and just an all around good story! I highly recommend this to just about anyone – but for those who love to read I think it has a special story to tell.
St. Dale - I’d have to say I got this book because it was free in e-book. I am not a NASCAR fan and had no idea that was the subject of the book by reading the title. I read the reviews and a number of people stated you didn’t have to be a NASCAR fan to enjoy this book – so I went ahead and got it. I enjoyed it, and did learn a lot about the sport. I liked the approach the author took through the eyes of the characters. It centered around Dale Earnhardt and probably a bit to the extreme, but just the same – it kept my interest.
The Girl in the Lighthouse - This story started off very nice – a young girl living on an island with her loving parents and another family, to include two young boys who fulfilled her childhood. But then it turned dark and got darker and darker – I was hoping it was going to turn the corner…
I should point out that I thought the writing was good, and it was a page turner. It was the dark subject that I was not fond of, but that’s just me.
Obviously book #2 will pick up where this left off, but I don’t think it is really “my cup of tea”, so I will not be moving on to the next book.
I’m currently reading “Daisy Fay and the Miracle Man” by Fannie Flagg.
It’s a fictional coming of age story about the life of southern Daisy Fay Harper in the 1950′s. It’s formatted as Daisy’s journal entries, and references many odd characters and situations in her anything but normal life. It references authentic nostalgia from that era, and many humorous anecdotes from a cast of memorable characters.
Nancy – That sounds interesting, I might have to add that to my “to read” list. As much as I read it seems my “to read” list gets longer and longer.
