Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove
Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove by Christopher Moore (1990s)
This is not my normal reading, but I am glad I read it! Oliver Wyman does such an AMAZING job narrating this book!!!! He is able to give each and every character life and presence while he reads. This story was completely insane and outlandish, but it was hilarious, fast paced and enjoyable. -- Added by TruBlu on 02/26/2014

The Great Gatsby
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald (1920s)
I think I have a higher appreciation for this book now then I did in HS. It was very slow to start up though. 2/3 back story and build up before we get to the "meat" of the book. Over all it was okay. I was disappointed in the ending, and it was sad. -- Added by TruBlu on 02/08/2014

Fahrenheit 451
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury (1950s)
I had a hard time reading this book. I never finished it in HS, and I'll admit I fought to finish it now. It's a lot of metaphors to make the same point and I felt it was a bit repetitive. Overall the story is kinda sad. Everyone be the same, no one learn, change is bad, different is bad. Curiosity kills the cat... The ending was a little disappointing too. -- Added by TruBlu on 01/21/2014

Where the Wild Things Are
Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak (1960s)
Rereading this book for the umpteenth time with the kids. In their Book Bingo they needed to read a Caldecott or Honor book. I like the base for the story. That kids will be kids and mischief is inevitable. But a warm meal can always bring you back ;) -- Added by TruBlu on 01/14/2014

After Dead
After Dead by Charlaine Harris (2000s)
If you were disappointed in Dead Ever After... Then don't be surprised to be MORE disappointed in this. It didn't even contain shorts, just blurbs on each character in the series and how they spent the rest of their lives. The only people to get a good end was Sookie and Sam. Everyone else dies young or bad deaths, divorce, dead children, or being alone. CH dropped the ball long ago. -- Added by TruBlu on 01/12/2014
