Book Blogger Hop! - 2/11/11

Book Blogger Hop

Tell us about one of your posts from this week and give us a link so we can read it (review or otherwise)!

The blog hop is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books. Hop on over to join in the fun!

 
This week I reviewed Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women's Prison by Piper Kerman.  Its the memoir of a woman who was sentenced to a year in federal prison ten years after her offense of carrying money internationally for her drug-dealing lover. The book shares both the lead up to her being incarcerated, as well as her time in prison during which she comes to terms with her mistakes and actually finds herself becoming close with her fellow inmates.  The book was a very good read and Kerman's no-pity, no-excuses acceptance of her failures is refreshing.  A great book for memoir-lovers, or those just looking for something totally new.

The Post Is:

This week I reviewed a work of suspense fiction that is such a wide departure from the thriller genre that I feel everyone – fans and foes of the genre alike – really should investigate.
