Good story, the ending was predictable but a good read to get there

Great legal, political medical thrilled

Somebody's Daughter
by Ashley C. Ford

View in Library Catalog



A beautiful and heartfelt memoir that shows the reader what growing up as a poor Black woman in American might be like. I especially loved the way Ford wrote about her early childhood and how children interpret the events around them.

The Golden Anthology
by John Papademetriou

View in Library Catalog



Family members compiled writings of a young man who immigrated from Greece with his family in 1947. He was KIA in Korea shortly after arriving at the front trying to save an injured soldier. His story about his life in Greece (and being in a concentration camp for 6 months) was most interesting. His letters, essays and poetry showed a strong, patriotic, faithful young man who was taken way too soon.

Sisters
by Danielle Steel

Danielle Steel is predictable but sometimes it's a fun ride of predictability this time I found it long and drawn out. The first four chapters are devoted to describing each character, one chapter for each sister..making each one to be the best most devoted daughter of all. It got pretty sappy and then wham....death and how each handles tragedy . I think you can tell this was not one of my favorite Danielle Steel's books.

The Kings Men

This was a re-read for me and I loved it even more the second time. This is the one series that I would never recommend to anyone but I will also defend wholeheartedly.

Spirit Bound

The book ended when I wasn’t expecting to end. What a cliff hanger.

The Maidens
by Alex Michaelides

Unbelievable plot and a highly overrated novel but still mildly entertaining

Four Winds
by Kristin Hannah

Yes I found this book interesting and felt like I was revisiting The Grapes of Wrath that I read in high school but I just found this to be a very depressing book. I kept wanting the main character to have some good luck but it was just never meant to be. Other than learning more about the dust bowl and the hardships of this time I did not enjoy this book.

...eh? Read this thanks to it's place on a NYTimes list of good summer romance leads and it just didn't click for me! Rabbis are people, too, and don't just run around spouting sermons!
