The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
The Goldfinch

dreena, April 12, 2014

With better editing, this could have been a great read. The characters are well drawn, but there are too many pages of unnecessary details. If you enjoy long, drawn out tales, this is for you.

Lies You Wanted to Hear by James Whitfield Thomson
Lies You Wanted to Hear

dreena, March 16, 2014

Told from alternating points of view, Lucy and Matt share the story of their relationship and the lies and choices that tear them apart. A fast-paced page turner that makes for a great Book Club selection. Loved it!

Marta beckons us from the pages. pleading with us to believe she is not Marta, but Elise, a victim of a crime that no one believes to have happened. Should we believe her?

Dark Places by Gillian Flynn
Dark Places

dreena, February 5, 2014

A gripping, mystery where we follow Libby to the "dark places" of her past to unravel the truth of her family murders. If you liked Gone Girl, you won't be disappointed in Dark Places!

You Can't Take a Balloon Into the Metropolitan Museum by Jacqueline Preiss Weitzman
You Can't Take a Balloon Into the Metropolitan Museum

dreena, November 9, 2013

What a wonderful book to stir the imagination and interest in art. In this wordless book, you ( or your favorite little one) tells the story of a little girl's run away balloon in the museum. Outside, the city scenes mirror the famous paintings and statues. A beautiful introduction to art imitating life! A great gift!
