    My favorite was Kindred, by Octavia E. Butler. It's about a black woman who travels back in time to the antebellum South. It was not my typical read, but I really liked it!
    I was on an OJ kick, and so most of my non-fiction was about him, although I also liked Ann Rule's If You Really Loved Me, too.

    Least favorite was Circle of Friends by Maeve Binchy, which I still haven't finished. I just cannot get into that book!

    That book forced me to sleep with a light on for a couple of nights.

    I love Ann Rule, I am reading Kiss Me Kill me right now. When my stepdad passed away my mom gave me his Ann Rule book collection and I tend to go on binges but then need to take a break because the people around me start looking potentially homicidal.

    I just downloaded Romeo Dallaire's Shake Hands With the Devil based on WOG's post.


    My best book of the year was A Dog's Journey by W. Bruce Cameron, I can't really think of a worst though.

    For those of you that loved First Fifteen Lives of Harry August, was it the ending that grabbed you? Because I was 60% through it and felt like I was slogging through.

    I saw that you only gave it 3 stars . I found the whole concept fascinating. A completely different take on typical "time travel" books. TBH I don't 100% remember the ending but I know it never felt like a slog to me
