Oleander Girl by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni: I picked this one up on a day at the library when I had no books on reserve and no idea what I wanted to read. I liked it. A young girl, about to be married, leaves India to search for her father in America.
Loving Frank by Nancy Horan: I read this on a recommendation and it started out so well. It was an interesting peek inside the life of a famous person, but midway into the book when Mamah, Frank’s mistress, abandons her two young children for over a year to live with him, I began dislike it. Then the ending is just awful.
Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell: I loved this book! I listened to it and the reader was so good, but the story is great too. It’s about two misfit teenagers who fall in love.
The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck: I read this years ago and recently listened to it and remembered how much I liked it. If you’ve never read it, I highly recommend it.
