All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

Wow, I loved this book and if you haven’t read it, run out and buy it or download it and sink your teeth into this novel.  I don’t think you will be able to put the book down. Anthony Doerr’s All the Light We Cannot See is brilliant; he brings the story to life and you will just want to hang within the pages, never leaving.

The Prodigal Son by Danielle Steel

I love Danielle Steel books, there I said it!  They are my guilty pleasure and go to novels when I want something fun to read.  I can’t ever put them down and usually end up reading the book until 2 or 3 in the morning because I need to know how it ends. Running a little behind, usually I have the newest book read within days of it coming out, but it’s done. Prodigal Son is a little different from most of her books, without giving the story away, this one is a really great book.  We all have become

Memoir of the Sunday Brunch by Julia Pandl

Memoir of the Sunday Brunch by Julia Pandl has been hanging on my Kindle for a long time, and it was time to devour the pages.  I didn’t read any reviews on the book, didn’t know much about it, but loved the cover and title, who doesn’t love Sunday Brunch? Memoir of the Sunday Brunch is a funny, coming of age story of growing up with 9 sibling and two parents living in the Midwest in much simpler times.  Times when kids roamed their neighborhoods, pranks were a common occurrence, chores were handed out and moving was part of life.

The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto by Mitch Albom

Happy March! March is my month for hosting book club and I chose to have the group read The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto by Mitch Albom. Have you read any of his books?  I love them. Mitch Albom’s books are unique, make you think and each one draws you in to the story unlike so many others. The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto is one of the unique stories and I managed to slide right into the characters lives and live there until I sadly finished the last page.
