"This is a hard world to be ludicrous in, with so many human beings so reluctant to laugh, so incapable of thought, so eager to believe and snarl and hate." - Kurt Vonnegut, Mother Night

Mother Night

"mother night" by kurt vonnegut. My favorite Vonnegut book so far

In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women--mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends--view one another. A deeply moving novel filled with poignancy, humor, and hope, The Help is a timeless and universal story about the lines we abide by, and the ones we don't.

The Help by Kathryn Stockett was such a wonderful book. I laughed, almost cried and felt connected with the characters in the story. I can't wait to see the movie.

The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls When I asked for reading suggestions at the end of my last book club chat, many of you said The Glass Castle. It’s the memoir of a girl growing up in a very eclectic and cash-strapped family.
