Default Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore: A Novel: Robin Sloan ...

I'm sort of conflicted about posting this here instead of the What Are You Reading thread because I didn't hate this book, its just not being a techy person maybe I just didn't appreciate it as much as I would have had I been one!

Shining Through by Susan Isaacs

A review stated that Shining Through is a novel of honor, sacrifice, passion, and humor. I'd have to say more than 90% of it is work place gossip, romance, and just dull storytelling in general! And yet this was made into a most enjoyable movie IMHO of the same name starring Melanie Griffith, Michael Douglas, and Liam Neeson..go figure

I should of listened to my gut!

There are enough sick and twisted people in this world, I really didn't need to read about fictitious ones as well.

Tell it to the Bees by Fiona Shaw..


IMHO.. this book moved slower than molasses in January! It was not an up lifting read, & it focused on the ex-husband Robert WAY to much! I liked the 10 year old child, but we're only privy to one or two things he confides to the bees.

I know I posted about this being turned into a movie in one of the other threads and perhaps even suggested reading the book in the meantime!

My deepest apologizes!

I hope this will be one of those rare incidents where the movie is actually better than the book....

Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly


I read the first three chapters but for some reason it just didn't grab me! Maybe I gave up to soon????



Personally I think I was in the mood for a book comparable to The Alice Network and this wasn't it unfortunately.
