So I have had the book 'Room' by Emma Donoghue posted on my blog over the past week. I actually read this book in three days!! It was fantastic! It was an intriguing story about a mother-son relationship and the life they created living together in an 11x11 room. The book was an intense page-turner and I am still thinking about the story a week later. This was definitely one of the better books that I have read recently.

I then read the book 'Morning Glory' by Diana Peterfreund, also an upcoming movie. And definitely not a great follow up to 'Room' It was a cute, romantic comedy - but nothing great.

I have read quite a few great books the past few months - the Stieg Larson trilogy 'The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo', 'Birth House', 'Secret Daughter' and 'House Rules'. But now I am stuck. I really don't know what to read next. Does anyone have any recommendations?


  1. Have you read 'Tales of the Otori'? (even the audiobook is exceptionally well narrated).

  2. Through Black Spruce by Joseph Boyden is a wonderful, Canadian novel, thought-provoking and heartwarming.

  3. I will have to try both of those!
