Looking for your next read? Here are some books we read and loved!
We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves
Karen Joy Fowler
This book is described on the jacket as “wickedly funny yet emotionally devastating” and it is that and more. I can’t stop thinking about it and plan on recommending it to everyone I know. It is definitely one of my favorites and will be put on my “read again” list.
The Enchanted April
Elizabeth von Arnim
The Enchanted April is a wonderful find from the fiction shelves of relationships, families, and self-discovery that revolves around four women who meet at a medieval Italian castle rented for the month of April. The cold, wet rain of a February in London drives the ladies to seek the warm sea air enveloped in the aromas of wisteria. While it starts out a little slow, the story quickly develops into one that you will not want to put down as you become enchanted in the developing friendship of the women and the villa gardens they inhabit.
Murder as a Fine Art
Rambo and The Brotherhood of the Rose creator David Morrell takes on the Victorian Detective novel in Murder as a Fine Art. Thomas De Quincey, author of Confessions of an English Opium-Eater, is accused of a series of gruesome murders and must track down the real culprit. While the story can be a bit over the top at times, it fast paced and always entertaining.
Sex on the Moon : The Amazing Story Behind the Most Audacious Heist in History
Sex on the Moon is an adventure worthy of D. B. Cooper. Mezrich tells the story of Thad Roberts, a NASA co-op student, who stole several grams of moon rocks from a lab at NASA. The story is a non-stop adventure is filled with adventure, romance and humor, and you will come to root for Thad as one of the more likable bad guys of American history.
