John Selfe. It's the first of a trilogy, and it will definitely leave you wanting more. This memoir is the most heartbreaking and eye-opening tale of redemption I have ever encountered. I've read this book six to eight times over the last seven years, and I will continue to read it throughout my life.
Any person who has been dealt a sucky hand in life will connect to and never forget the words of Cupcake Brown! My go-to book when asked for a recommendation! Right away, the queen of mystery has you wondering and guessing what's going to happen next as strangers on an isolated island start dying. The suspense and intrigue of the entire premise had me totally captivated throughout.
Suspense, Mystery & Thriller
Heart-Shaped Box is the one book that I have not been able to put down recently. It's horror — about a jaded rock star haunted by a ghost he purchased on the internet — but the characters feel real and are easy to relate to. I got so invested in them that I ended up staying up until 3 in the morning to finish it! This book has a strong heroine, struggling to fit into two worlds and navigate their separate political agendas. There is, of course, a romantic seduction, but also so much beautiful writing that evokes great emotion in a reader. I immediately went out and bought the sequel.
As master of the short story, Alexie knows how to make his characters come alive. I finished the book more than a month ago and I'm still frequently talking and thinking about these characters.
Because they are absolutely real — their questions, their jokes, their ideas, wishes, hopes, hesitations, doubts, and fears. Combine that with Alexie's dark, twisted humor, which will make you laugh out loud, and you have a very deadly combination. He sings to the empty places in my mind, and this is a book I just cannot get out of my head. I will not lie and say that this book is riveting all throughout, but toward the end I genuinely could not stop reading. The on-and-off nature of Raskolnikov's personality is so annoying that I actually enjoyed it. He longs for his mother, his sister, Sonia, or he literally hates everyone and wants to murder more people.
Also his transformation in the end is just remarkable. I thought that the interlacing of romance in the book turned out to be beautiful. The relationship of Raskolnikov and Sonia put me on an emotional roller coaster that I did not want to get off. Oh, and one more thing: That one drunk guy who Raskolnikov meets in the bar has some really cool quotes — "I don't blame her, for the one thing left her is recollection of the past, and all the rest is dust and ashes.
This memoir made me confront one of my worst fears: that someone I love could drop dead and leave me without warning. But that's what Alexander experienced. Her ability to write about the ineffable — the unthinkable — and to turn that into a story that's ultimately life-affirming and profound made me feel as if I had been given a gift. I've already had occasion to buy a copy for a friend.
And this will be my go-to gift for others well into the foreseeable future. No matter who I've raved to about this book — male, female, avid reader or not, young, old — it has appealed to every. It's pure recommendation gold. A former top spy writes the ultimate book on how to commit the perfect crime, thinking it will never be read. When someone follows it to the letter, our spy is the only one who can track them down — and that's just the beginning of the intrigue.
Part murder mystery, part international espionage thriller, this is an exhilarating ride. I reread it as soon as I finished. Knowing how it all ends doesn't diminish the intelligent, well-executed narrative; it adds to it. Perfectly paced, and with intricately drawn characters even the Big Bad one — actually, especially the Big Bad one will make this a thriller that will likely be enjoyed for generations.
I desperately hope there is more to come. One of the best books I have ever read is Consequences by Aleatha Romig. It's about an abductee and captor, and it is enthralling. The plot twist at the end had me staring wide-eyed at the ceiling for at least half an hour trying to wrap my mind around what I'd just read — it left me craving more, and possibly needing therapy.
Fortunately, it's the first in a five-book series! Oskar Schell is a little boy whose father died in the Twin Towers on Sept. He has a key that belonged to his dad, and the book is about his determined quest to figure out the mystery of what it unlocks. Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is funny and beautiful and sad all at the same time — and I guarantee you will be in tears at the end. From the jacket teaser — "Five days.
Four lost hikers. Three survivors. I relished the mystery of finding out which beloved character wouldn't survive. Each page I read, every turn of events, spurred me on.
A must-read this summer! This book is wonderfully complex, following the parallel narratives of a deranged scientist and a humanoid data processor hurtling through the seedy underworld of a near-future Tokyo. Yes, it's a weird, experimental, post-modern celebration of the mind but, by the end, I was so ensnared in Murakami's strange world and bizarre characters that it was sad to have to say goodbye.

George C. Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight. Despite the somewhat lack of imagination and outrageous claim in the title of this complex thriller I was riveted by the race against time to diagnose and manage a new strain of malaria discovered in Holland and the relevance of this threat to our abducted scientist Erica, who was about to present a paper about her breakthrough in treating malaria. However, when Erica is abducted no one could see her boyfriend Max pulling out all the stops to find her despite finding himself a suspect in her disappearance. As much as I did enjoy this thriller it was not the most gripping one I have or will ever read and it did have a few sticky points in plot too, but overall it was entertaining and the science was interesting.
In my opinion it could have done with a good proofread and editing to make it a little less long-winded on the violence and a bit more interesting in the details when tying up loose ends.
