Quiet; The Power of Introverts in a World that can't stop talking by Susan Cain (book club)
The Inheritor by Marion Zimmer Bradley
Witchlight by Marion Zimmer Bradley
The House Between The Worlds by Marion Zimmer Bradley
Confessions of an Ugly Step Sister by Gregory McGuire
The Awakening by Kate Chopin
The Art of Hearing Heartbeats by Jan Philipp Sendker (book club)
Signs of Life by Natalie Taylor (book club)
Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver (book club)
Up by Patricia Ellis Herr (book club)
A Prayer For Owen Meany by John Irving
I Am Forbidden by Anouk Markovits (book club will be posted 7 May)
The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
The Girl With A Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier
The Prince and the Pauper by Mark Twain
Julia's Child by Sarah Pinneo (currently reading and half way done...for book club)
