Still Alice by Lisa Genova
This was such an interesting book about a 50 yr. old Harvard professor who gets early onset Alzheimer's disease. It is a fictional story, but the book is written by a Harvard professor whose specialty is neuroscience. The book does not tell the story in a third person setting - it's not told by Alice's doctors or caregivers point of view. It's told from Alice's point of view of what it's like to slowly lose your memory. It's a must read.
After You by Julie Buxbaum
This story is about a woman whose best friend, Lucy, is murdered. Ellie leaves her husband to go to London for the funeral and stays on to help with Lucy's daughter, Sophie. Obviously, the story is not as simple as that so I will leave it there. A great read for anyone who has a really cool best friend! (Hi, LQ!)
I can't get too far ahead in my book club reading or I forget the details when the time comes to discuss the book, so I am about to start House of Testosterone - One Moms Survival in a Household of Males. I've only read the introduction so far, and I've already chuckled. The author has a husband, three boys and a male dog. Not at all unlike my house, except that we have a cat.
