  • I *Heart* The Spellmans!

    Back in January, I wrote a little bit about Lisa Lutz 's Spellman series. Last night I finished the third installment, Revenge of the Spellmans . It is EXCELLENT! This has become my new favorite series, since I've begun to grow tired of Janet Evanovich 's Plum series. Private investigator...

  • Animal Dreams -- Books for Lunch at Red Bank Branch

    On Wednesday, April 8, 2009 at noon we will be discussing Animal Dreams by Barbara Kingsolver at Red Bank Branch Library . I could hardly put Animal Dreams down while I was reading it and I hope you'll enjoy it too. Codi, her father and the other characters are wonderful and the small town of Grace...

  • E Can Write More Than Songs

    Mark Oliver Everett is probably better known simply as E, the lead singer and creative force behind the Eels, but a few months ago he published a memoir under his full name called Things the Grandchildren Should Know . He might be a little younger than most people who've decided to write memoirs...

  • The Longest Trip Home

    After reading several mixed reviews on John Grogan's newest book , I took the plunge and decided I'd see for myself. I really didn't think there was any way I could like the book as much as the bestselling " Marley and Me ", but I didn't think it would be as bad as some of the...

  • Lisa Lutz's Izzy Spellman Novels

    I read The Spellman Files by Lisa Lutz during our 2008 summer reading program, how about you? It was good enough, I read Curse of the Spellmans right afterwards. What a quirky family! The books focus on a wild private investigator named Izzy Spellman, but her whole family (mother, father, older brother...

  • The Hour I First Believed by Wally Lamb

    Many fans of the Oprah book club will remember author, Wally Lamb, from his previous books, She's Come Undone and I Know This Much is True . After a lapse of many years, Lamb is back with this new epic which is rather heavy both in subject matter and in physical size (740 pages.) Though these factors...

  • Strong at the Broken Places

    This book's preface begins, " These are the faces of illness in America. Do not look away.......Quite simply, they are us. " If you have ever known someone with a chronic or terminal illness, you probably already know that each person approaches their difficulties in a way that is all their...

  • "House at Sugar Beach" by Helene Cooper

    I just finished one of those books that will stay with me for a long while. Helene Cooper's memoir, The House at Sugar Beach: in Search of a Lost African Childhood is remarkable and haunting. Her journalistic expertise opens the reader up to a privileged Liberian childhood, which ended in 1980 when...

  • "The Condition" by Jennifer Haigh

    With its sympathetic portrayal of a family in crisis, "The Condition" reminds me of Jonathan Franzen's "The Corrections" and Joyce Carol Oates' "We Were the Mulvaneys." All three novels convey the message that every family has points of stress and conflict -- we...
