The book, that really made my cheeks wet - many times for which I'm happy too.Its not often you find a book that makes you deep involved with itself so much that it makes you forget your food and curse your body when it wants to take even a short break. I really went through this horryfying exper...

El rey Arturo: El hijo del dragón (2009)
3.94 of 5 Votes: 2
First of the Arthur trilogy, and it promises to be just as entertaining as the Merlin trilogy. A whole new take on Arthur's childhood and what formed him in the context of the turmoil as Roman influence waned and the Celts, Saxons and Jutes jockeyed for ownership of the land. I may have to break...

The Black Dahlia (2013)

Like 1 & 2 it definitely kept me engaged. I think Po and Liberty felt obligated to be together but they didn't love each other and weren't meant to be together. Things went left when Dahlia entered the picture and had Po taking out all of the people that had his back. I was really surprised that ...

A Moment in the Sun (2011)
3.92 of 5 Votes: 4
I really can't recommend this book highly enough, and I rarely publicly share my opinion of anything. It's such an engaging fictionalized account of turn-of-the-century America, a time that I'm rapidly growing to consider the most interesting period in American history. The characterization is vi...

I picked this book up at a sale for about an Euro - one of the best spent Euros of my life. It is one of the few books that I have read that have really moved me.This is a book of 36 short stories written by Erdich over the period of 30 years. They are on a number of Topics, but always at the hea...
The Red Convertible ( Selected and New Stories 1978-2008 ) ( True First Edition ) (2009)
3.93 of 5 Votes: 1
phew. finally done with this one! So good writing sometimes gets wearisome. I like Louise Erdrich a bunch but found this book to be a challenge. I think that part of it was the weird confusion of stories that were familiar from being part of other books of hers and the way most of the stories...
The Red Convertible LP: Selected and New Stories, 1978-2008 (2009)

I've enjoyed all of the novels that I've read of Louise Erdich. I don't find her a particularly easy author, but something about her work keeps me coming back for more. This collection of short stories only adds to my admiration of her writing. The 36 short stories were written over 30 years. ...
Impatient with Desire (2010)
3.64 of 5 Votes: 1
The title is so misleading, because at first glance you'll think it's some kind of bodice ripper romance novel, which is about as far away from real subject matter of the book as you can get.It's a historical novelization of the DONNER PARTY. And it's actually beautiful, and awesome. While it's...
Meet Caroline (2012)

Meet Caroline is the story of Caroline Abbot, who is girl living during the War of 1812. I read this one on my own, without my little sister, because she and my mom read it together. So, before we buy more in the series, I had to know what happened in the first one. Even without reading it to a c...
