Amazing book! It was a little hard for me to get into the story, but once I was past the first few chapters, I was drawn in and didn't want to put the book down. This debut novel is a winner! The setting is 1921 after the Great War. Survivors of the war are trying to mend and move forward.

This novel with its unique story line is hard to describe. Evil powers in the world are altering minds and a heroine is needed.

Gilead | Marilynne Robinson

This book is a Pulitzer Prize winner. Truthfully, I tried and tried to get into the story, but just couldn't. For others, it might be a great read, but it just wasn't my style.

megnews I felt the same. Everyone‘s got different taste but I couldn‘t understand the appeal. 1mo

This book is hard to describe. It needs it own unique category. The story is about a plant with unusual powers. Karen Hugg's “...stories are set in worlds where plants, real or imagined, affect people in strange new ways.“ (About the Author, The Forgetting Flower) If you like a good mystery this is a wonderful read.

Other have raved about this book, and I join their praises. Such an intriguing story. The details are amazing and drew me in instantly. “Then, as she whirled around, she bumped into Tate, who had stood, and they froze, staring into each other's eyes. They stopped laughing. He took her shoulders, hesitated an instant, then kiss her lips, as the leaves rained and danced around them as silently as snow.“ (Where the Crawdads Sing)

The Store | James Patterson

The Store by James Patterson - One of the best books that I've recently read. I couldn't put this book down. Full of interesting twists. “I don't have to stretch my imagination far to envision a future of unparalleled convenience, fueled by a powerful online retailer that knows everything about us.“ (James Patterson)
