Books That Make You Go Hmmm…

Books Hmmm...

Over the years, I’ve read some books that really make me think.  Sometimes it’s simply me wondering how the author came up with the story being told.  Other times, it’s wondering how stories continue after the book ends.  Every now and then I wonder why I continue to read a crappy book when there are so many good books out there!  Bah! Some books really grab me and continue to make me wonder even years after reading them.

Here are a few that left a lasting impression on me and made me really think.



Inside the O’Briens by Lisa Genova

Hmmmm….If you could find out if may get a disease in the future, would you find out?




The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot

Hmmmm….So many questions including those about morality and medical ethics.



The Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson Walker

Hmmmm….What if this event really happened?  Which group of people would I align myself with?



Quiet:  The Power of Introverts in a World that Can’t Stop Talking by Susan Cain

Hmmmm….Why don’t we recognize the power of introverts?



Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosnay

Hmmmm….How would I be able to deal with the results of a seemingly innocent decision as happened in this book?


Have you read any of these?  I would love to hear what you have to say about these very thought-provoking books.
