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.

Without a doubt, one of the most impressive, amazing, complex, creative, intelligent novels I’ve ever read. The 2018 Pulitzer Prize winner, The Overstory by Richard Powers proves itself worthy, over and above.

I am one who believes there is always more that I need to know about a subject and that can't be more true than with writing. I often feel I must go back to the beginning learning or relearning the fundamentals in any given topic before I dare put pen to paper. So when I saw "Craft of Writing' by Christopher Hawke for FREE as a Kindle download on BookGorilla, I couldn't push the BUY NOW button fast enough on Amazon. And it did not disappoint.

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.

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.

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.
