I loved this book. I loved the unique way it was written and I loved the charachters. I read it in 5 days ending on an airplane where I cried with abandon. I hate to cry but I loved crying over this book.

Forced into a humbler life with relatives in Ireland after the sudden death of her father, spoiled sixteen-year-old Tamara Goodwin discovers a diary of future entries written in her handwriting that she hopes will reveal the truth about her mother’s troubling health.
It was an easy read and pretty interesting.
I’ve been hearing about this book for months so I thought I should read it. I’m about 100 pages in and I’m wondering if I should abandon it. The characters don’t do anything and I’m not sure they are very … interesting.
I enjoyed this book. It was a bit disorienting in the beginning but, once I realized that the chapters didn’t follow a normal timeline, it was even better.
A charming novel about a bookstore clerk who discovers the books in the back room are not ordinary and neither are the people who check them out. This book started out really well but got a bit tedious and far fetched. I LOVED that the book cover glowed in the dark!
This fictionalized version of Zelda Fitzgerald’s time at the Phipps Clinic at Johns Hopkins Hospital and her friendship with her nurse is overly dramatic and unbelievable. I wouldn’t recommend it.
I didn’t make it to the end of this book (which, btw, was in the teen section!). I enjoyed the beginning and the middle but then I found it a bit boring. Apparently Tim Burton is going to make the book into a movie.
When I went to get this book from the library, I heard a customer loudly ask to a librarian how she was supposed to like a book where she hated both main characters. When I asked my librarian where I would find Gone Girl, she told me that was the book the loud customer was talking about. Well, I didn’t really like either character but I really DID like the book. It was a quick read and, I don’t think it’s a very important book (ie, I’m not going away from it any wiser or smarter) but it was well written and surprising and I was a little sad when it was over.
I was pretty disappointed with this book – it’s slow and gets pretty boring once Hadley and Ernest (Hemingway) get to Paris. I was a little reluctant about this book because it’s historical drama but was desperate at the airport bookstore to find something I hadn’t already read.
This book started out being so interesting – it’s about a man and his brother and what they were going to do about the awful situation their sons were in. The book goes through the dinner where they are going to work this out and has chapters with flashes to the situation with the sons as well as other explanations of their past. Somewhere in the middle, the book fizzles out and I was left feeling very unsatisfied. I think back to the book I started out loving and I don’t feel like I finished reading it.
