*Bookmarks is an online book club hosted at Creative2xmom. Here we discuss the books we've read in the past month as well as the suggested reading. Our suggested reading for April was Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty

These are the books I read this month:

Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult-- Ruth, a labor and delivery nurse of over 20 years, has been taken off a patient's case through no fault of her own.  So what's her fault?  She's African-American and the baby is the son of a white supremacist.  When the baby goes into cardiac arrest, with only Ruth in the room, what will she do?  Will she act as a nurse?  Or simply walk away?  Told through the eyes of Ruth, the supremacist father, and her public defender, Small Great Things takes on the challenge of race in America.  Challenging and thoughtful, I agreed with some of it, disagreed with some of it, and came away with a lot to think about.

Love Unending by Becky Thompson--See my review here.

What We Read With The Kids:

A Dog's Life by Ann M. Martin--  This book was so sweet.  At times heartbreaking.  It reads as an autobiography as the dog tells about his various owners, good and bad.  And the adventures and misadventures of a stray.  Honestly, it was a horrible book for me to read 'cause now I want to go adopt all the strays at the shelter.

Our suggested reading for March was Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty--  Six adults and three children at a dinner party... what could go wrong?  Spend this book uncovering what exactly did happen at that dinner party and who's to blame.  But be careful with your guesses.  There may be more than one right answer.  If you've read many of these bookmarks posts you know that I love Liane Moriarty's books and this one is no exception.  It was a page turner for all 415 pages!  I couldn't put it down as my mind was racing to unravel this mystery of friendship, guilt and obligations.  Read it!
