The One Hundred Nights Of Hero
by Isabel Greenberg

View in Library Catalog

Glorious, imaginative storytelling! I loved this graphic novel so much. I’m in awe of this masterpiece.

The Bluest Eye
by Toni Morrison

View in Library Catalog

Morrison is a master of language so I don’t think you can really go wrong with any of her books. This novel is an incredibly emotional story of a young black girl who wishes for beauty in the form of blue eyes. It is often sad and has quite heavy subject matter (that’s as much as I can say without spoiling) so be warned but it is very important story and I would recommend it to anyone but especially to young women of color.

My Kitchen Year
by Ruth Reichl

This book is a continuation of the story that Ms. Reichl told in"Save Me The Plums". It is also an excellent cookbook that is very well written - her recipes are delicious and give directions in an easy to use format that urges the reader to be creative.

Ice Cold

Tess Gerritsen's characters are strong and believable. The pace is captivating, the plot pulled from the headlines.My hope is that a particular character gets featured in a subsequent book.

Black, White, Brown
by Nishta Mehra

View in Library Catalog

As a lesbian mom, I was interested to learn more about the author and her family. I could relate with her on some points, but felt that this could have been two books. One book about her life, and another about parenting. The biggest complaint I have is that her son is only 5 so there’s not much story there yet. This is a memoir that would probably be better to write in 15-20 years.

Hidden Talents
by David Lubar

View in Library Catalog

This is my son’s summer reading book. It was sitting around so I read it in a day or so. I was pretty surprised at how much I liked it. It was written in 1999 but somehow still holds up pretty well with the passage of time. I thought it would be about troublemaking boys learning how to be better students but there was a cool twist I didn’t see coming.

The Cuban Affair
by Nelson Demille

View in Library Catalog

Learned a lot about modern day Cuba and what life is like there now from the perspective of an American visitor. Was very detailed in the boating scenes which was educational for me. Feel the plot was not wrapped up well and that the story dragged on and on in sections... not a real page turner for sure.

How Hard Can It Be
by Allison Pearson

View in Library Catalog

This is an amusing book about a woman coping with middle age.

Wild Bird
by Wendelin Van Draanen

View in Library Catalog

This book is a very emotional book, that does a good job of mixing the present time with the past. The protagonist, Wren, has troubles that almost are almost everyone has, and has problems that almost everyone doesn't have also. This beautiful mix results in a feeling of reality combined with imagination. And all of this wraps ups into one book that makes people never want to put it down.
