December Reads

Queen of Swords by Sara Donati 3*, not the best of the series. Revolved around Hannah, Luke and Jennet, not the rest of the usual main characters.....
The Keep by Jennifer Egan 3* weird and different....interesting story, just told from too many viewpoints, gets confusing, and I hated the ending
Picture Perfect by Jodi Picoult 2* predictable story and weak characters, definitely not her best!!
Salem Falls by Jodi Picoult 3*
Baby Shark by Robert Fate 3*
Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts 3* pretty good story, but dragged on wayyyyyy too much (932 pages)
The Tie That Binds by Kent Haruf 3* okay story but not his best
More Than You Know by Beth Gutcheon 3*
In Cold Blood by Truman Capote 3*
Ellen Foster by Kaye Gibbons 4* (quick easy read)
"The Life All Around Me by Ellen Foster" by Kaye Gibbons 3*, not as good as the first
The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls 5*
The Dollmaker by Harriette Arnow....halfway through, not sure if I'll finish it. Just VERY depressing....
The Ruins by Scott Smith 4* not my normal kind of reading, but very much a page turner!!
The Center Of Everything by Laura Moriarity 4*
The Pact by Jodi Picoult 4*
Small Island by Andrea Levy 3*
The Reader by Bernard Schlink 3*
