The Boleyn Deceit
The Boleyn Deceit by Laura Andersen (Other)
This is the second book of the historic fiction - The Boleyn trilogy.The premise of this trilogy is - what if Henry VIII had a son --- The first book "The boleyn king" builds the characters, this book adds all the layers of the wonderful story. It is a very well written book and I am waiting for the third and final book which will be published in summer of this year.Would highly recommend this book. -- Added by Joy on 02/15/2014

Your Life Calling
Your Life Calling by Jane Pauley (Other)
This book is filled with inspiring stories of people that Jane Pauley interviewed for her Today show series, "Life Reimagined Today," which is about people that reinvented themselves instead of just retiring. It also includes things that Jane has learned during her own life. I like her modest, realistic, attitude of gratitude. -- Added by Hope on 02/12/2014

The Brothers Karamazov
The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky (Other)
As much as I loved Crime and Punishment, I'm still not sure what I think of the Brothers Karamazov. Filled with internal monologues and philosophical arguments, this story moves slowly. At the end of the book, I still have a lot of questions about the characters and their destinies. -- Added by Shaynie on 02/11/2014

Divergent by Veronica Roth (Other)
Very fast paced and a can't put done type of book. In a similar genre as The Hunger Games and looking forward to reading the next book in the series! -- Added by Spetzie on 02/10/2014

Elantris by Brandon Sanderson (Other)
When Elantris fell, it fell hard. Its God like people apparently cursed were shut behinds it's filthy walls and ignored. No one knows how someone is chosen to be an Elantrian, but no one wants to one & not anymore. Even in his first novel, Brandon Sanderson creates elaborate characters and worlds with ease. I really enjoyed this book and hope he writes a sequel as it's been rumored. I've yet to be disappointed with Sanderson's writing. -- Added by mwcarlton on 02/08/2014

The Boleyn Inheritance
The Boleyn Inheritance by Philippa Gregory (Other)
I've been working through the entire series and find it interesting to see events from a variety of points of view. Seemed to drag a bit in spots. Anne of Cleves was fascinating and I hadn't gotten a good read on Jane Boleyn earlier. These women were ultimately powerless pawns. -- Added by Linda51 on 02/07/2014

Saying Goodbye
Saying Goodbye by Barbara Okun (Other)
Published by Harvard Medical School, it talks about how to establish a healthier life after losing someone significant in life. Oftentimes people cannot cope well enough to function normally after the loss. To help those, it presents systemic approach to finding renewal and moving forward in life. While it seemed morbid to read about coping with death of family members, the book serves as a roadmap to navigate through loss in the future. -- Added by Lk on 02/07/2014

I don't think that is morbid at all. Even if somebody has yet to experience it, they likely have somebody in their life who has. Understanding just how profound that impact can be can lend insight into how to best support them during that difficult time. -- tbeattylaf on 02/08/2014  
River Road
River Road by Jayne Ann Krentz (Other)
Good story-Lucy Sheridan 16 visiting her aunt, Sara, in Summer River. Mason Fletcher, 19, overprotective. Now 13 years later and her aunt has died or was she murdered? Lucy returns as a forensic genealogist while Mason runs a private security consulting business. Lots of twists and turns. A death the summer Lucy visited her aunt, comes back to haunt other people forcing someone to kill. -- Added by raderc on 02/06/2014

John Gielgud
John Gielgud by Gyles Brandreth (Other)

The Kingdom of Little Wounds
The Kingdom of Little Wounds by Susann Cokal (Other)
This was named one of three Printz Honor Books last month by the Young Adult Services Association for its literary quality. I would say it is for the older end of the YA age range because it includes references to rape, torture, disease, and so on, but it is also a rich, satisfying read that would probably also interest adults who like both historical fiction and fairy tales. It is about three women - a seamstress, a slave, and a queen - in the royal court of a Scandanavian town in 1573. -- Added by Hope on 02/06/2014
