Dominion

This book had elements which made my skin crawl, but it is a fantastic read, taking you on a journey which shows that bravery and integrity of a few really can break the hold of many, particularly those intent on world domination.


Little Failure: A Memoir

On every level, Little Failure is a great success.


Call Me Burroughs: A Life

For die-hard Burroughs fans, Call Me Burroughs will likely fill in small details of its subject’s life that were left in question. For people looking for an introduction to the man’s life and work, reading his Wikipedia page would save a lot of time.


Orfeo: A Novel

With Orfeo, Powers has strung together the largest, oldest ideas about being human and creating art.


The Ghost of the Mary Celeste: A Novel

The journey ends up being emotionally rewarding.


Shadow Ops: Breach Zone

This is the best book in what turned out to be an excellent, unique trilogy. I can’t wait to see what Myke Cole comes up with in the future.


The Almost Girl

The Almost Girl is a clever, exciting novel with the perfect dash of romance thrown in.


Shadowplay: Micah Grey, Book 2

Shadowplay was brilliant, even if it ends on somewhat of a cliff hanger, and I can’t wait to find out what happens next.


Love & War: Twenty Years, Three Presidents, Two Daughters and One Louisiana Home

While it's heart-warming to read about the affection Matalin and Carville have for New Orleans, their children, various political candidates and causes and each other, the epic conflicts between the two colorful characters are what make Love & War riveting.


My Life in Middlemarch

Mead’s thoughtful, tenderly erudite love song to a book and author will please those of us who delight in reassurances that great works of fiction, well-read, help us understand our own lives.


Dust

Dust is not a perfect novel, but it is a powerful one.


The Guts
Kirkus Reviews : The Guts (January 28, 2014)

Whatever its novelistic flaws, the rock criticism and pop-culture insights are sharp throughout.


Careless People: Murder, Mayhem, and the Invention of The Great Gatsby

Prodigious research and fierce affection illumine every remarkable page.


The Crane Wife
Kirkus Reviews : The Crane Wife (January 28, 2014)

A magical realist meditation on how to love and be possessed by love.


Dept. of Speculation

There are moments of literary experimentation worthy of Virginia Woolf here, but in the end, this reads more like notes for a novel than a novel itself.


Wakeworld
Kirkus Reviews : Wakeworld (January 28, 2014)

Baffling sometimes but enthralling and hugely enjoyable.


The Consequences

Familiar ground that’s been done better before.


Why Are You So Sad?: A Novel

A single-serving comedy about the nature of contemporary doldrums.


My Life in Middlemarch

A rare and remarkable fusion of techniques that draws two women together across time and space.


What We've Lost Is Nothing: A Novel

What We've Lost Is Nothing is a fantastic read about the meaning of home and fragility of values and worldview.... a highly recommendable, canny, well-paced and well-crafted story.
