This one has been sitting on my bookshelf for as long as I can remember and I was finally able to get to it. A very intriguing and raw novel of individuals living in a small town and how the relate to Olive Kitteridge. Reminded me a lot of the quirky characters in Anne Tyler's books.

The Bad-Ass Librarians of Timbuktu: And Their Race to Save the World's Most Precious Manuscripts by Joshua Hammer
I was really excited to read this book (the title pretty much says it all!) - even though I don't normally read too much non-fiction. Even though the book started off slow, it was really interested and I really enjoyed the last few chapters. Such a unique and amazing story!

An interesting take on a young slave girl's experience with the Underground Railroad. I enjoyed some parts, but overall the story seemed a little disjointed and I found myself losing interest.

This is the first book by Nicholas Sparks that I have read in years and I really enjoyed it. Russ's relationship with his six-year-old daughter completely won me over from the very beginning and I loved the realistic humor. An easy read and great story about love, loss, and family.
