Title: My Nest Isn’t Empty, It Just Has More Closet Space
Author: Lisa Scottoline and Francesca Scottoline Serritella
This is a mother-daughter endeavor. Each chapter recounts family events, relationships, and secrets of their nuclear and extended families. Each chapter has a generational spin.. Each chapter stands alone. Each chapter is short, pithy, and humorous. A quick and entertaining read.

Room is the story of a woman stolen off the streets and trapped in a room for seven years. It is told through the eyes of her five-year-old son, the product of her captor. It is a very well-written, extremely intriguing novel. I highly recommend it.

Title: The Minivan Years
Author: Olivia Bruner
This was, by far, one of the most disappointing books I have ever read. I purchased it thinking it would remind me of all the a sons I became a mother. Instead, I received Christian teachings on the importance of submitting to your husband and disciplining your children. No where on the jacket was I informed that this was a Christian-based parenting guide. Very underhanded.

Title: The Night Circus
Author: Erin Morgenstern
This is an interesting plot about the magical uses of the brain to create entertaining circus events twisted in a love story that is so intense that it moves to another plane or dimension of life. The author includes a mystery competition between unknown adversaries which eventually turns into a love story. The author uses a time frame that transitions between the late 1800’s and the early 1900’s. The setting primarily focuses on the features of the unique circus as it moves from country to country. I found the character descriptions to be entertaining.

Title: The 19th Wife
Author: David Ebershoff
I really enjoyed this book.
The author told two tales a hundred years apart, both stories relate to each other. One story is based on the life of Anne Eliza Webb, the 19th wife of Brigham Young, one of the first leaders of the Mormon church, and a second fictional story of a modern day cult of polygamists.
This book is about polygamy, is so interesting and so well written, I couldn’t put it down.
