I Need Books!!!

I need your help...
I need some suggestions for really good books to read on Spring Break. 


This is what I have read lately...

 LOVED this book!!

 I may be the only person in America who didn't love this book.

 Really?? If you want to hear about Frank Lloyd Wright's dirty laundry, this book's for you. I had a hard time getting through it.

I found this story of southern blacks migrating to northern states after emancipation fascinating. 

 Such a great book but I could have done with a little less on rowing techniques.

 The first transgender woman/man. - it is now being made into a movie with Eddie Redmayne. Interesting but not a page turner.

 Another young adult book that everyone should read.

OK...what cha got??!!

  2. Where'd You Go Bernadette. So good and laugh out loud funny. We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves, but resist the urge to read anything about it--there is a secret that it's better not to know when you start reading. The Goldfinch was amazing but it is an epic. Did you read Wild? Read it twice and loved it both times through. On the young adult track, did you read Eleanor and Park? That's a good quick read, too, and makes you kind of nostalgic for falling in love.

    Enjoy! Have fun!

  4. I second "The Goldfinch". Art, antiques, upper crust East Side and seedy underbelly of life. It has it all and I loved it.

    "state of wonder" by ann patchett. beautifully written.

    have you read "peace like a river" by enger? I think you would like it.
