The Henna Artist
by Alia Joshi

Henna Artist is more about self reflection, earning self respect and holding ones head up high. In the beginning, I was captured by the henna & stories around it. As I listened deeper into the book, jealousy from others speared into play. When the jealousy spewed out of the clients mouths, hatred & lies went along with it. While the main character had worked hard for 17 years, built a career, a home, was in high demand, it was suddenly cut short because of a viscous woman. Lies were spread & suddenly all the good she had done, donated simply disappeared. She was a nobody. Back to where she was when she started when she was 17 years old. Cast out. Forgotten. It took courage to get where she had gotten & the loyal one she had built up remembered what she had done for him. He was the one that saw all was lost & her future. He did not turn away when she was down & disgraced. This book is more than about Henna and the culture. It is how one can build themselves up from nothing, have it stolen from them in a flash unjustly & the choices a woman (or man) can make to redeem themselves, allow themselves to swallow & die in disparities or rise to the challenge and remake themselves/move on.

Prarie Fires The American Dreams Of Laura Ingalls Wilder

Well written and interesting book. A little bit sad to learn not everything was quite the "Pollyanna-feel" I got when I was little and read the Little House books.

If It Bleeds
by Stephen King

I absolutely adore Stephen king. I have never read a single book that he has wore that didn’t immediately suck me in from the beginning sentence. Even his short stories such are these are just simply amazing. It’s amazing to read the average book and then to read king and you realize how bad so many writers are. King just tops the cake with his writing skills and really painting a picture that you just get completely engulfed in.
