Before I Go to Sleep by S. J. Watson
Before I Go to Sleep

Dina, January 2, 2012

Loved this book. It's a psychological thriller and a study of memory. The main character loses her memory every time she goes to sleep. At the opening of the book, she's living home with her husband, but has no memory of their life together. She keeps track of her days with a journal. As she recovers more and more of her memory with the help of a therapist, the story becomes a thriller, with Christine unsure of who to trust. Excellent, compelling story.

The Paris Wife by Paula Mclain
The Paris Wife

Dina, July 22, 2011

Hemmingway's A Moveable Feast is one of my favorite books, so this novel was a natural fit for me. It is historical fiction, based on the same events Hemmingway relates in that book. The novel details Hemmingway's first marriage to Hadley Richardson in Paris in the 1920s during his early career. The story is told mainly through Hadley's eyes, which is certainly a different perspective. The book creates a vivid picture of what it must have been like to live in Paris in the midst of all the artists who built their careers during that time.

Live from New York: An Uncensored History of Saturday Night Live

Dina, July 21, 2011

Great history of Saturday Night Live from the start of the show through the 90s, told through interviews with all the major stars, producers and writers. Really interesting look at the evolution of the show and lots of interesting behind the scenes stories.

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
The Graveyard Book

Dina, January 25, 2011

I read this book to my son and thoroughly enjoyed it. An orphaned baby crawls into a graveyard and is promptly adopted by the ghostly inhabitants. The baby's adventures as he learns all the ways of the graveyard are wonderful as are all of the interesting characters he encounters. As the little one grows up, he learns the differences between living the ghost life and actually being alive. This is a great, great story!

The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
The Time Traveler's Wife

Dina, January 1, 2010

Very interesting book. I didn't think I would buy into the premise, but the author does a great job of tracking the story forward and back through time.
