Title: Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil

Author: John Berendt

I loved this book. This was one of the books I read after I saw the movie but only because I didn’t know it was a book first. I love how this reads like a fictional novel when it is about real people and events. I love how Mr. Berendt makes the scenes come to life-like they are happening now.

“Elegant and wicked…. Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil might be the first true-crime book that makes the reader want to book a bed and breakfast for an extended weekend at the scene of the crime.” –The New York Times Book Review

Title: Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons

Author: Lorna Landvik

I know the rule is to never judge a book by its cover, but I couldn’t help but grab this one off the shelf right after I read the title. I do believe I laughed out loud in the middle of the book store. After my skeptical reading of the first chapter in the aisle, I knew I had to buy it.

If you are an avid reader and like having a list of books to read on hand this book is perfect. Each chapter has the title of a different book. This book was also awesome because although it is fiction it is congruent to life and the issues we face everyday.

I believe this book is the proof that with a few good friends and a good book you can make it through anything.
