This is where I review books that are meant for adults - that means anyone over the age of 18. Of course, there are those under 18 years old who may find many of these books to their liking, particularly the classics which include most of my favorites. I've been on a mission to read the Pulitzer fiction winners and I think anyone who can understand these books, and many are also required reading in high school, should enjoy these classics. If you have a suggestion for a book you would like to read that you want my review of, I would be happy to assist you.

John Green had been on my radar for quite some time and although I had tried to read "The Fault in Our Stars" which was made into a movie, after reading just a couple of chapters of this book, I put it down. I just didn't care about any of the characters. And if I was completely honest, I didn't like any of them either. But I thought I would give Green another shot and found "Paper Towns" at my local library.

I really enjoyed this book of short stories, particularly her keen sense of humor. I actually had to read the first story "Who's Irish?" to my husband because I was laughing so much he wanted to know what was so funny. A collection of short stories, this book was a delight. I find myself always impressed with an author who has a varied and extensive vocabulary, as Ms. Jen does.

Romance, lies, trickery, abusive love, divorce, affairs, having-it-all and losing-it-all - what doesn't "Dune Road' by Jane Green have? From the rich and famous to the not-so-well-off and virtually unknown, the cast of characters in the town of Highfield will leave you feeling grateful you aren't a resident.

A collection of short stories by Junot Diaz would not have been my first choice since I was unable to finish “The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao” a 2008 Pulitzer Prize winning novel. But I wanted to give Mr. Diaz another chance and when I came across this collection in a book store I had to buy it.

I picked up this book several months ago and actually filed it away on one of my basement bookcases, with my other D. Delillo books. Then recently I heard someone talking about Don Delillo which sent me searching through all the books I have by the author. I knew "White Noise" would be the 1st of his that I would read.
