Blogger Book Fair: Ali of The Way I See It

I have more great contributions to the Blogger Book Fair lined up for you all. Perhaps I will make it a once a week feature until I run out of peeps. I realized I forgot to post my list over the weekend, so mine will be coming soon too. The more the merrier, so send me your lists, because everyone is loving all the great suggestions!

Today we have Ali of The Way I See It. Take it away Ali!

Change of Heart, by Jodi Picoult
Like all of her novels, Ms. Picoult once again tugs at your heart strings with this one. The book poses some serious questions regarding life, good vs. evil and love. Read it and weep, but definitely read it!

The Septembers of Shiraz
, by Dalia Sofer
A man is captured in Tehran with little explanation and is forced to suffer through death, torture and anguish, not to mention time away from his family. Aside from being beautifully written, this is an informative book that everyone should read.

The Friday Night Knitting Club
, by Kate Jacobs
Think Steel Magnolias with a twist: a knitting club run by a yarn owner raising her young daughter. A wonderful read about the bonds between women.

Oooh, these all seem like wonderful books to read while cozied up next to the fire this fall and winter! Thanks for the great suggestions Ali!


  1. awwww ali! i love ali! change of heart was such a good book. i HIGHLY recommend. i couldn't stop reading it and HI i was on vacation in hawaii. that should tell you much :)

  2. I'm loving all these great suggestions. Normally, I can't stop reading...but lately I've had a really hard time getting into and sticking with anything. I just picked up the new Dan Brown book yesterday. Hopefully that will end my bad reading streak :)

  3. Woo hoo! Thank you for posting my picks Jackie. :)

  4. again jackie, thanks so much for this book fair...

  5. Just found your blog through Ali and super excited to read your picks. Hope you do this on a regular basis.

  6. I've never heard of the "Septembers of Shiraz," but I love reading books about other cultures, thanks for the idea!

  7. "the friday night knitting club" was a great book. i recommend it.

    i don't ever go into bookstores knowing what i want to buy. i just roam around half price books picking up anything that catches my eye. i usually leave with 8-10 books. i have an tower of books lined up to be read.

    loving this series!
