'The Shack' by William P. Young

"The River of Doubt" by Candice Millard. This is the one I was telling you about at lunch... the one about Theodore Roosevelt's journey. You won't be able to put it down.

Classics check: have you read Rebecca...what about Gone With the Wind? Ok good. I really like Jodi Piccoult if you're in to fiction novels

Liv said...

The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski.

beautiful boy by David Sheff (and I bet the companion memoir Tweak by his son Nic is just as good).

Five Chimneys by Olga Lengyel.

Aaron and Ashley Walker said...

"The Memory Keeper's Daughter" by Kim Edwards.

Allison and Noah Riley said...

Allison and Noah's current subway reads:

Noah - '1776' and he's lo-oving it.
Allison - just finished 'Outliers' and found it interesting; started 'Stiff: The Curious Life of Human Cadavers' and don't know enough to recommend or not recommend yet.

Time to Blog It Up! said...

You do know that it is a hard task to suggest books to other people. We are all at different seasons in our lives and some books that we find terrific, others wonder why. I know that one can always suggest the books that everybody is reading, but how fun is that. I like to find those little treasures that just plain touch me, that make me smile, that make me happy, that make me think about the world around me. I also love a good mystery. Okay, so enough of that,here are my suggestions to you.
Tuesdays with Morrie, Mitch Albom. As Amy Tan said, This is a true story that shines and leaves you forever warmed by its afterglow. SO TRUE.
Gift From the Sea, Anne Morrow Lindbergh. The thougts in this book are wound about the sea, a beach and an island. hmmm I have read them many times and still enjoy it. Always something new that uplifts.
Tending Roses by Lisa Wingate. Just a sweet enjoyable book.
A book I just recently read...
Uprising by Margaret Peterson Haddix...Its a simple read but I really liked the historical history. This is about the tragedy of the Triangle Shirtwaist fire in 1911. It's about the young women immigrants that come to America with hope of making a better life for themselves and families. It touches your heart and makes you wonder if things have really changed so much with the immigrants that come into our country, today. Lets hope!
Oh and take the time to read Life of Pi, but don't read it listen to it on cd's. Way enjoyable.
ooops..sorry this is way long. I will stop here. Good luck. ♥Tamee

If you are looking for a mindless, fun book, The Boy Next Door by Meg Cabot is my favorite. I read it whenever I need a pick-me-up or a cheer-me-up.

In response to Tamee's recommendations, I have read Tuesdays' with Morrie and LOVED it. It really is a great book.

'And You Know You Should Be Glad' by Bob Greene, if you want some non-fiction.
