The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food from My Frontier by Ree Drummond
The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food from My Frontier

If this is anything like her first cookbook, it will be a winner. She has a talent for writing folksy or maybe I should say cowboy commentary that brings a smile along with her delicious recipes and excellent photographs. What is there not to like?

Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand
Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption

I enjoyed this book because it showed the difference that determination and a strong will can make in a person's life. Louis Zamperini's courage to not give up in numerous circumstances that most average people would was inspirational to me. After reading this, no one should feel they can't make it or feel sorry for themself. The book is about an ordinary man and an extraordinary life. I recommend it to everyone.

Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen

This book has it all. There is a love story, adventure and mystery. If you are an animal lover you will love this book. The characters are well developed. You can't help but become emotionally involved in the story. For every person who dreamed of running away and joining the circus when they were kid, this book lets you live that life vicariously. The ending is awesome.

Cutting for Stone (Vintage) by Abraham Verghese

This book had a gripping story. I thought of the characters long after I had finished the book. Having visited India recently, I better understood the desperation portrayed in the novel.
