Orphan Train
Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline (1920s)
I enjoyed learning about a piece of history I had never heard about. My heart went out to the orphans on the train and wished I could go back in time to take some of them in. The relationship between Vivian and Molly was delightful. And the author did a good job linking their two stories together. -- Added by Kristine on 02/28/2014

Fall of Giants
Fall of Giants by Ken Follett (1910s)
I love big thick historical novels. Ken Follett is wonderful at weaving multi-character stories into historical events. Set before, during, and after WWI, I found this book had a little too much military detail for me, but it still had me hooked. I will read the second in this Century Trilogy... but not right away! -- Added by Kristine on 02/16/2014

Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe
Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe by Fannie Flagg (1930s)
I can't believe I took so long to read this book. It's as delightful as the movie and then some. I'm heading south in a couple of months and I will be sure to order okra and fried green tomatoes! I am putting it in the 1930's since my favorite parts of the story took place in that decade. -- Added by Kristine on 02/16/2014

The Ocean at the End of the Lane
The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman (1960s)
I really enjoyed the writing and the narrator. Neil Gaiman makes fantasy believable and his books appeal to me even though I don't normally read fantasy. -- Added by Kristine on 02/16/2014

Wool Omnibus
Wool Omnibus by Hugh Howey (Other)
I'm not a big fan of dystopian/future books but I was given this as a gift. I was very surprised at how much I liked it and really got into the characters and felt a part of their world. Good twists and turns kept me wanting to read on. -- Added by Kristine on 01/23/2014
