Jemima J - book cover picture

I thought that Jemima J by Jane Green was an awesome book. Prior to reading it, I had heard that it was about a fat girl that gets skinny. I was expecting a girl with very low self esteem being persuaded by the media to be thin and beautiful, which it was. However the ending of the book really made it worthwhile. Seeing her go from low self esteem not being who she wanted to be, to low self esteem with who she did want to be and then finally having high self esteem with the person she didn't intend to be but the person she was happy with and it wasn't all about the media and being perfect.

The Sibyl in Her Grave - book cover picture

As a student of literature I spend most of my time reading literature from the British canon--learned, sometimes difficult, prose. When I'm on vacation, I want to read something fun--not that Jane Austen isn't delightful. I cannot, however, suspend my constant need for intelligent prose.Sarah Caudwell is a kind of Austenian mystery writer (a comparison others have made, I think). She satisfies the need for good writing, while satisfying the desire for entertainment. Implausible plot? Of course, but no less plausible than the coincidences sprikled throughout Pride and Prejudice.The novel starts slowly, but once the characters and events get moving (albeit, postally) the mind of any mystery lover will be astir with conjecture. So much fun! The last novel I read during my winter vacation and completely gratifying.

Battle Cry of Freedom: The Civil War Era (Oxford History of the United States) - book cover picture

This book is colossal, in size and scope, in depth and breadth, in text and tincture. James McPherson touches on all aspects of the Civil War all within 862 pages. I know what you maybe thinking to yourself..."This isn't a casual read," or maybe, "History can be pretty dry especially 862 pages worth." Ease your foreboding thoughts though; McPherson's "Battle Cry of Freedom" keeps you engaged with interesting detail, personalities, and cause and effect without ever becoming bogged down. It's just good writing anyway you look at it.Once upon a time I developed quite an appetite for all things Civil War. McPherson whetted that appetite in one book. To learn as much would have taken a small library. If you read this along with Michael Shaara's Killer Angels, you too will be well on your way to Civil War buff-dom-ship. Good read.

Confessions of a Shopaholic - book cover picture

I bought this book together with `Shopaholic Takes Manhanttan` at the Narita Airport to kill time on the flight. And BOY.. was i very impressed with Ms Kinsella`s debut novel. I believe there`s a little shopaholic in every girl`s heart and i caught myself laughing out loud with Becky`s misadventures in the novel. Although I am definitely not something so extreme like Becky, i could relate to her totally like worrying about a beautiful scarf in the midst of a conference! Ha! At somepoint, Becky could be really stupid & naive in the novel but in the end its her big-heartedness that charms the readers. A job well-done Ms Kinsella!

Out of the Ordinary : Essays on Growing Up with Gay, Lesbian, and Transgender Parents - book cover picture

Finally,, this book was just what I have been looking for. I've been diligently searching for information on how my lesbianism would effect my daughter and the sterile studies I found just didn't seem to satisfy my quest. I found comfort from this book and in knowing who she becomes depends on all the factors of parenting and not just the fact that I'm a lesbian. This collection outweighs the studies because the honesty of the writers provided rare and precious information. I hope volume two is in the works and perhaps we will hear from some more artificial insemination babies. Thanks to the writers and editors for letting these voices be heard loud and proud.

This book was a relevation for me into manic depression.

Book title: An Unquiet Mind

An Unquiet Mind - book cover picture

This book was clear and precise in its writing and was easy to read. It provided the reader with a clear understanding of the impediments manic depression poses to those who have it and to those who treat it. However, it is also a starlingly uplifting book because Kay has achieved so much despite the social stigma and mental difficulties of a mental disorder. I was honored to read her story and thrilled that she was willing to share her fears and successes with the public. I too have a mental disorder and it made me feel more empowered and also feel that I CAN achieve my dreams. Like a medical disorder, a mental disorder can be treated if treatment is followed appropriately and this book emphasizes that.

The Mcdougall Quick and Easy Cookbook : Over 300 Delicious Low-Fat Recipes You Can Prepare in Fifteen Minutes or Less - book cover picture

This book makes cooking at home easy. Part of the problem with 'eating healthy' is that people think that it takes forever (and frequently it did!) This book makes it as easy to make healthy low-fat fare as it is to make a high fat meal... frequently faster.The book also helps you to understand how to use time saving brown minute rice, canned beans to create delicious meals. Definitely worth buying.

Wedges Gamble (Star Wars: X-Wing Series, Book 2) - book cover picture

Oh, this rules! I haven't yet read the first one, so this one was a little confusing, but it rules! I was very pleased do find a book that didn't have Luke or Han in it, with minimal appearances of Leia. I love the original characters, but new ones are even better! My favourite pilot of the Rogues, besides Wedge, would definitely be Gavin. He's so awesome! I have this thing for insignificant characters, so I love Gavin! Please include more about him in the next book! This one gets six stars!
