The Bibliophile Files!

Well I can't believe a whole month has passed since the last bibliophile files!  May was not a very good reading month.  May was a wonderful family month with the kids all coming home from college and a trip to Charleston for my sons graduation from The Citadel.  I did read two books though.  The lovely Sarah at hosts the bibliophile files once a month.  It is great to see what people read and to get good recommendations.
I have been reading a bunch of these books by Sally Goldenbaum.  They are set in a coastal town called Seaside.  The group of close friends and knitters are also amateur sleuths.  These are fun, clean books without too much graphic detail in the murders.
 I really enjoy series for the young folk.  I have read all the Harry Potters, the Twilight series and the Hunger Games series!  This Divergent series is good.  Reminds me of Anthem etc.  America is divided into factions who each have a job to perform.   The social structure is very strict - you can move from one faction to another, but it is very difficult.  What happens when one faction becomes power hungry and teams up with another faction?  Read it - it's rather good.

  1. My daughter gave the Roth series to my son for his birthday... I'm thinking they might go on my reading list too.
