Haiku Book Reviews

My favorite books I read in the last few months:

HELTER SKELTER: THE TRUE STORY OF THE MANSON MURDERS by Vincent Bugliosi and Curt Gentry. Nonfiction.
Well written tale of
brutality and evil.
It’s terrifying.

THE BEGINNER’S GOODBYE by Anne Tyler. Novel.
Smart, lovely story
of a widower’s journey.
I love Anne Tyler.

PERFECT TIMING by Jill Mansell. Novel.
Romantic hijinks
and silly fun in England.
A jolly good read.

ME BEFORE YOU by Jojo Moyes. Novel.
A disabled man
and a woman scarred inside
fall in love. Great book.

TEACH YOUR CHILDREN WELL: PARENTING FOR AUTHENTIC SUCCESS by Madeline Levine. Nonfiction.
Anti-Tiger Mom
says children should be well loved
but not too pressured.

MEMORY BOOK: THE CLASSIC GUIDE TO IMPROVING YOUR MEMORY AT WORK, AT SCHOOL, AND AT PLAY by Harry Lorayne and Jerry Lucas. Nonfiction.
Visualization
techniques really help when I
can remember them.

SHARP OBJECTS by Gillian Flynn. Mystery.
Great writing, but too
horrific for wimps like me.
Children are murdered!

WRITING MOVIES FOR FUN AND PROFIT by Robert Garant and Thomas Lennon. Nonfiction.
Entertaining book
from comedy screenwriters.
I laughed while I learned.

LAST LETTER FROM YOUR LOVER by Jojo Moyes. Novel.
Brits in the sixties
contend with romance and pain.
I couldn’t put this down.

PRETTY IN PLAID by Jen Lancaster. Memoir.
Coming of age
remembered acerbically.
It’s hilarious.

WHY WE GET FAT by Gary Taubes. Nonfiction.
Why? Sugar and carbs.
If they don’t kill us first. Sigh.
Decline the donuts.
