The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
The Graveyard Book

Angela McGreevey, March 11, 2014

This is a wonderfully bittersweet coming of age story about a boy named Bod. He is hastily taken in by a graveyard of ghosts after Bod's family is murdered. This book is engrossing, and you won't be able to out it down. The characters brilliantly come to life and the writing allows you to feel as if your in the graveyard with Bod. While Bod's life is anything but ordinary, he is well lived by his ghostly adopted parents, and the other members of the graveyard. The story takes you on a journey of his adventures while growing up; all the triumphs and sadness. I absolutely loved this book, would recommend it for people of all ages, and will definitely read if again.

The Big Sleep (Vintage Crime) by Raymond Chandler
The Big Sleep (Vintage Crime)

Angela McGreevey, March 1, 2014

I enjoyed this book and it was a fast paced, good read. Raymond Chandler's writing allows the reader to get lost on the streets of Hollywood and chase down a blackmailer, with Detective Marlowe. The detective is hired when an a dying millionaire needs to find out who is blackmailing his troublesome daughter. Quickly Marlowe is swept up in a deadly adventure. This book has everything one could want from a classic hard boiled detective story; a quick witted detective, larger than life characters, and more than one good mystery to solve.

The Dante Club: A Novel by Matthew Pearl
The Dante Club: A Novel

Angela McGreevey, March 1, 2014

This suspense filled book takes place in Boston during the late 1880's.. As a group of literary scholars try to translate Dante's works to English, they are met with opposition from Harvard, the church, and grizzly murders. Shortly after the translations start, so do the murder, in a similar style to that of Dante's hell. The men of the Dante Club quickly realize they must race to find the murderer, before anyone else looses their life. This book was suspenseful and eery, but I couldn't put it down.
