Political Suicide

I'm absolutely loving this new twist Palmer has put on his subjects of late as well. He's added a political element to the medical thriller subgenre he's so well known for.


Falling Kingdoms

If you are looking for high fantasy read that isn’t overly complex, I highly recommend you pick this up!


The Bones of the Old Ones

Suffice to say Bones of the Old Ones retains nearly all the charm of its predecessor, cementing Howard Andrew Jones as one of the preeminent voices in sword and sorcery, and the fantasy genre at large.


A Once Crowded Sky: A Novel

May require more concentration and patience than some readers will give, but if they do, they’ll be rewarded with a philosophical gem on heroes, sacrifice, and the meaning of life in a corrupt world.


Music for Torching

This is a good read if not particularly pleasant, and comes into the category of “car-crash” reading – you know something terrible is going to happen and you are just waiting for it to happen.


Orders from Berlin

I am sure Simon’s grandfather would have been proud to read this fine novel and to realise that his talent has been passed on to future generations.


Mission to Paris: A Novel

A fine writer and a fine book to join so many other of his works, all of equal quality.


Detroit Breakdown

This is a fast-paced, succinctly written, mystery is unpredictable, creative, well-researched, and definitely keep you on the edge of your seat.


The Lady of Secrets: A Novel

There is much to find interesting in this story – murder, vengeance, and dark secrets.


Blood Eye (Raven: Book 1): A Novel

Blood Eye is a rich story of adventure told in the style of the Norse sagas, revealing much about the harshness of life in the Scandinavian sailing age and the surprising fellowships forged between people.


Foretold

A wonderful conclusion to a fabulous series.


It's All Relative: Two Families, Three Dogs, 34 Holidays, and 50 Boxes of Wine (a Memoir)

If I wasn't laughing, I was holding back tears because I was moved by what I was reading. Sometimes, both occurred at the same time.


When It Happens to You

It's a wonderfully simple tale, told in a refreshing way.


The Lost Girl

The Lost Girl is perfectly pitched as science fiction for young women.


The Coldest War

The Coldest War is a very strong novel, both as the second book in a trilogy and as the author’s second published novel. The Milkweed Tryptich has a lot to offer readers and is recommended quite strongly.


Drinking Water: A History

He ends each chapter with a brief essay on questions such as “Did lead pipes contribute to the fall of the Roman Empire?”; “Was fluoridation a Communist plot?”; and “Does dowsing work?” To find out the answers, spend a few enjoyable hours with Salzman’s book.


I Funny: A Middle School Story
Kirkus Reviews : I Funny (November 01, 2012)

The affecting ending, which reveals a more vulnerable Jamie behind the guise of his humor, celebrates Jamie's resilient spirit.


Dear Life: Stories

Like Ms. Munro’s earlier stories that would influence several generations of writers, these pieces become meditations on how time and memory (along with regret or self-knowledge) shape our apprehension of our own lives.


The Twelve Tribes of Hattie

Without Oprah’s intervention, “The Twelve Tribes of Hattie” might have been one of the greatest novels of 2013. But now — just in time — it’s certainly one of the best of 2012.


Foodopoly: The Battle Over the Future of Food and Farming in America
Kirkus Reviews : Foodopoly (October 15, 2012)

While the text can be wordy and repetitive, the author’s message is clear, and the graphics pack a punch that hammers it home.
