Raven: The Untold Story of the Rev. Jim Jones and His People by Tim Reiterman
Raven: The Untold Story of the Rev. Jim Jones and His People

JLH3179, May 3, 2011

This book was phenomenal and so well-written. Like most people, all I knew about Jonestown and People's Temple was from the news and some documentaries. This well-researched book goes far beyond that to provide in-depth information about how Jim Jones and the movement transformed from a small Indiana church to an abusive, socialist commune with over 900 dead in the Guyana jungle. A disturbing but amazing book. Highly recommended.

Eclipse by Richard North Patterson

This is a great book both for fans of Patterson's work and his new readers. Although I enjoyed his earlier books, Eclipse and Exile are the best. For those who may be put off by the political elements of the story, don't be. It is an incredible page-turner with something for everyone. Pack it as a beach read, but make sure you have plenty of free time because you won't want to put it down!

The Initiation and the Captive Part I (Secret Circle) by L J Smith
The Initiation and the Captive Part I (Secret Circle)

I read this series as a YA and it has stayed with me over the years. It is just as good as an adult as it was when I was a teenager. I'm glad to see that the newfound popularity of the author's other series, the Vampire Diaries, is bringing it back. For those who enjoyed the Vampire Diaries, this series is a must read.

The Last King of Scotland by Giles Foden
The Last King of Scotland

JLH3179, July 30, 2010

What a phenomenal book. It demonstrated the horror and absurdity of Idi Amin's rule in Uganda. Although it is a work of fiction, it is all the more fascinating because of the truth behind it. Beautifully written and a must-read.

Skippyjon Jones in Mummy Trouble (Skippyjon Jones) by Judy Schachner
Skippyjon Jones in Mummy Trouble (Skippyjon Jones)

JLH3179, July 6, 2010

What an adorable book. I bought it for my young niece, and she loved it. The story is cute with a great rhythym for reading aloud. The pictures are very cute, and she loved looking at those as much as reading the story. It is so much fun to read for both children and adults alike. I can't wait to get her the rest of the series!
