The Twelve Tribes of Hattie (Oprah's Book Club 2.0)

by

This was a good book, but frustrated me. It is written from the perspective of Hattie's (many) children and each chapter switches to a different point of view. The stories were all engaging, the frustration comes from the fact that they all end too soon. I felt no sense of closure at the end of a narrative; I just wanted to know when we'd return to the story and find out what happened next. That never happened. I finished the book with a vague sense of longing and wondering over the unknown fates of each character.
Certain Girls: A Novel

by

I sobbed through the last quarter of this book. I was NOT expecting the happy-go-lucky story to take such a turn! Be prepared for a tear jerker if you read it!
Life of Pi (Illustrated): Deluxe Illustrated Edition

by

I was disappointed and underwhelmed with this book. It started out wonderfully, but the second half of the book dragged on and on. It has been so highly rated that I continued it only in the hope that eventually it would get better. It didn't. I really don't see what the fuss is all about...
Army Wives: The Unwritten Code of Military Marriage

by

Not a great read, NOTHING like the TV series, the characters names aren't even the same. Can't say much about Army life, but being married to an Air Force Officer isn't remotely like the lives of any of the characters in this book.
Perdida

by

Disturbing. I can't say that I liked this book; it was interesting but the characters and the plot irritated me. It is definitely worth reading until the very end, but I will never read it again.
A Long Way Gone

by

This book was both amazing and incredibly painful to read. My only complaint is that the book ended too soon; I wanted to hear more about Ishmael's immigration to the US.
The No Call, No Show

by

Fun, easy read. I'll definitely read the rest of the series as I have time.
