You Decide For Yourself

Tonight I had a meeting of my mother-daughter book club. It's an excellent group with some great high school friends and their mom. (The friends are sisters, so I didn't just have an agreement problem in that last sentence, fyi.)

This time around we read Room by Emma Donoghue. It was a book I could not stop reading, and subsequently could not stop thinking about. It's narrated by a five year-old boy who is the son of a woman who was kidnapped years ago and is being held in a shed. The two of them live there trying to be as normal as possible. That's just the beginning.

As Lee would say, if you want to read this book, you should.

It's still on my list but after reading Lit, I didn't think I should read Room next.

I do want to read this book.

I started it, but was just too disturbed and stressed to continue. Maybe another time, when I don't have my own small children?

I read this book a couple of weeks ago. I would definitely recommend it.

I love this book, even in its creepiness.
It was the first book I read on my iPad, which makes it special as well.
