Because I'm working backwards and I said I wouldn't write about books that I haven't freshly read, I thought I'd list the one I can remember that I read in 2007 and see if it brings any comments.
The Interpreter of Maladies--very unique collection of stories, some more sad than others, recommend
The Memory Keeper's Daughter--SOOO sad, still a good book, but it might make you cry
The Bridge to Terebithia--Loved it, never read it as a kid, nice quick read
Peace Like a River (re-read, one of my favorites)--If you haven't read this you must. I LOVE it.
Frankenstein--Didn't care much for it, but it was nice to know the story behind the legend, I coudn't stand Dr. Frankenstein, read up about Mary Shelley--that's the real interesting story!
The Glass Castle--I probably should do a review on this because I'd love to talk more about it. Great writer, great perpective (non-judgmental, objective), SAD story, pretty happy ending.
Little Women (Abridged!)--I read this for book club not realizing the copy I've had for 20 years is abridged. After listening to the other ladies, I'll stick with the abridged version I love!
A Train to Potevka--Great story, very different from most books I read. Nice spiritual element, the writer is LDS. Don't let the scary spy beginning turn you off the book, the rest is more mild.
