ROOM

This week I read ROOM by Emma Donoghue. Everything about it captivated me, from the author's brilliant presentation to the voice of the narrator, five-year-old Jack, who has spent his entire life in an eleven-by-eleven space.

It's one room with two who steal your heart. You have to read it.

What book would you recommend today?

Garden Spells, by Sarah Addison Allen!

I loved Room, too! And Garden Spells.

I'm nearly finished with Gail Caldwell's Let's Take the Long Road Home - one of the best memoirs I've read, ever.

I LOVED Room. Today I would recommend the book I'm reading right now, Among Schoolchildren by Tracy Kidder. Even though it was written 20 years ago, I think it's still relevant today. And that says something.

Sounds great! I would recommend anything from Iris Murdoch. I can read her novels over and over again.

I've never heard of that book but what an interesting premise. I just read Mistress of the Art of Death and thought it was pretty interesting.
