Not the easiest book I have ever read

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer This is our February pick for Book Club. I'm making myself read it before I see the movie.

Orphaned while onboard ship from Ireland, seven-year-old Lavinia arrives on the steps of a tobacco plantation where she is to live and work with the slaves of the kitchen house. Under the care of Belle, the master's illegitimate daughter, Lavinia becomes deeply bonded to her adopted family, though she is set apart from them by her white skin.

**The Kitchen House - Kathleen Grissom: 'When a white servant girl violates the order of plantation society, she unleashes a tragedy that exposes the worst and best in the people she has come to call her family.

Wonderful book. Everyone who reads it loves it. Sure makes you think. I want to go to Heaven, but I dont want to go now.

Heaven is for Real: A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back: Todd Burpo, Lynn Vincent

Another great book-to-movie read.  Quite engrossing and disturbing, but I'm very excited to watch the movie.  Can't wait to see Lisbeth Salander brought to life!

Haven't finished reading it yet, but it is good. This book is definitely rated "R" for language, sexual content, and violence. If that doesn't bug you, than it is a good crime-mystery full of intrigue.

Something Borrowed tells the story of Rachel, a young attorney living and working in Manhattan. Rachel has always been the consummate good girl---until her thirtieth birthday, when her best friend, Darcy, throws her a party. That night, after too many drinks, Rachel ends up in bed with Darcy's fiancé.  Loved this book!!!!!

Something Borrowed (book & Something Blue (book - Emily Giffin - finished book 1 (Rachel/Darcy/Dex's Story - enjoyed it).

Great read- especially for anyone who has lost someone they love
