Then He Ate My Boy Entrancers: More Mad, Marvy Confessions of Georgia Nicolson by Louise Rennison
Then He Ate My Boy Entrancers: More Mad, Marvy Confessions of Georgia Nicolson

Ruth, July 16, 2007

These books are probably the most hilarious I have ever read. I'm not sure how Louise Rennison does it, but she manages to make me cry from laughter at every other page. Highly recommend for any girl who appreciates a good laugh.

If You Could See Me Now by Cecelia Ahern
If You Could See Me Now

Ruth, April 12, 2007

An inspiring book about how seeing and believing are two completely different things. Elizabeth is a workaholic and a perfectionist interior designer. Everything has to be in order. When her nephew, Luke, whom she has been left to take care of when Saiorse, his mother and Elizabeth's sister, abandons him, starts to talk and play with an 'imaginary friend' named Ivan, Elizabeth is worried. Her childhood has taught her that there is no good in dreaming. It will only lead to dissapointment. But this book will do exactly the opposite. It's so cliche, but i laughed, i cried. And in the end, i was filled with a definite love of Cecelia Ahern's writing. It will keep you hooked until the very last page and then you will want to read it again. Ahern's amazing talent for pulling at your heartstrings and keeping you awake at all hours of the night reading is only solidified in If You Could See Me Now.

PS, I Love You by Cecelia Ahern
PS, I Love You

Ruth, March 31, 2007

This book is one that inspires. Holly is a lovable party girl who suddenly is taken away from the man she loves when he dies of a brain tumor. At first she thinks she will be unable to continue with her life and will never be happy again. But with the help of her friends and advice from her husband, she learns that moving on can be the hardest, but the best thing she could've done. You will fall in love with the fun characters and the entertaining humor of Cecelia Ahern's writing. This book will make you cry from laughter and on the next page, of sadness. But in the end, you will wish it had never ended.

Thinking in Pictures: And Other Reports from My Life with Autism by Temple Grandin
Thinking in Pictures: And Other Reports from My Life with Autism

Ruth, August 21, 2006

This is an amazing, enlightening, very compelling book. I learned so much about how the brain works and how different people process information in very different ways. Temple Grandin very clearly tells how an autistic person varies from a "typical" person with regard to thoughts, sequencing, emotion and interaction. I heard Ms. Grandin on NPR radio and was so engrossed I postponed my errands, sat in my car to finish listening and then- totally uncharacteristic for me- immediately found the nearest bookstore to buy the hardcover. (Sorry Powells, I do not live in Portland). Equally fascinating is Temple Grandin's Animals In Translation.
