Book Club: December

Flight Behavior (Barbara Kingsolver) 
This woman has stolen my heart and I have been collecting all her novels for my summer reading. This book is so wonderfully written, addressing pressing issues in the most gentle and innocent of ways and being from only a few miles south of where I grew up it really hits home for me. Kingsolver is a master storyteller and I can't wait to dive into another of her novels and fall in love with a whole new set of her characters.

Shotgun Love Songs (Nikolas Butler)
On the cover of this book Author Matthew Quick writes, "A book that makes you want to call old friends. A writer that makes you feel more human than you thought possible." I couldn't possibly sum it up better than that, this novel will take you back to your hometown friends who you know, love and will be there for you through it all. It's a tale of a small town love, between best friends and partners told in perspectives from everyone involved. It's a perfect read for when your heart aches for these people or even better, when they're just right around the corner.

Ten Little Pirates (Mike Bronlow and Simon Rickerty) 
Tiny's new favorite obsession (okay, okay, I'm a little hooked too) Little Pirates doing mischievous adventures and teaching your little one to count in the process, what's not to love?!
