In the Bleak Midwinter
by Julia Spencer-Fleming

I loved this book. The main character is an Episcopal priest who gets involved in a murder mystery. 

Breaking Night 
by Liz Murray

I just started this book yesterday, but like it so well I decided to post about it now. I can't put this book down; it is compelling. It is a true story about a girl who grew up with parents that were addicts. Later she becomes homeless (although I am not at this part yet.). She goes on to become a graduate of Harvard. I highly recommend this book.... so far!

A Dog’s Purpose
By W. Bruce Cameron

I really liked this book. I got it wanting to read a nice little story about a house dog. It starts off with dogs that are homeless so I was a little disappointed. Then they are in a big yard with a lot of other dogs, so not filling my desire for the book. However, the story does not stay there. It is indeed about a dog and a dog’s relationship to its owner. I was surprised when not even half way through the story the dog is old and dies. I expect that at the end of the book, but so early? Where can the book go from there? Well, go it does. The next part seemed a little far fetched at first, but I figured I would roll along with the flow. And flow it did. It is a charming story with a feel good ending. Our book club read this one and enjoyed it as well!

City of Thieves 
by David Benioff

The book club just finished reading City of Thieves by David Benioff. This book is about 2 young men during the siege of Leningrad. The book is very well written, and I enjoyed the history. What better way to learn than through historical fiction? The girls in the book club loved it. I loved the learning and enjoyed the artful way the author told the story. I did, however, think the book was a little dark. Of course the whole situation at that time was dark. I was torn between wanting to read more and thinking I might not continue the book.
