My Sister's Keeper

Twilight and Deception Point are on hold right now and I'm reading My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult. I picked this title for my adult book club and I'm hosting so I thought I'd better read this first.

It's good and I believe it will have lots of discussion points. More later.

Looking for these two bloggers....anybody???

I believe the first one goes by the alias "Playswithsquirrels", the second one I'm not so sure of...Both said they'd blog this summer. Both read a lot of books!

Finished book!

Wink, the greyhound, smiling.

I finished How I Live Now tonight. I was satisfied with the ending...I was worried a bit.
My last post talked about controversial topics in this book, one being the love affair between cousins. Other touchy topics included scenes of war and death...some quite uncomfortable. There was one scene where crows were circling and eating flesh from dead bodies. There was a somewhat graphic, yet short, killing incident. I don't know if this is considered controversial but the narrator always refers to God in the lowercase god sense. That was different.

I definately think this is a worthwhile book to read. I'd give it 2 thumbs up. It was a fast read. The voice of the narrator drew me in and made me care for her.

This book took me out of my box because it was somewhat futuristic. It was set in almost present time but during the next world war.

I hope this blog had lots of activity this summer!!!!!

Kariann, where are you???????????????????????

How I Live Now

How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff. Summary: "To get away from her pregnant stepmother in New York City, fifteen-year-old Daisy goes to England to stay with her aunt and cousins, with whom she instantly bonds, but soon war breaks out and rips apart the family while devastating the land."

This is the book I referred to in Victoria's post. I'm reading it right now. There are several controversial topics in it...Daisy is in love and having an affair with her cousin for one thing. I'll report back with more shocking events as I finish reading this.
