The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
The Night Circus

Ariel Valladares, January 30, 2013

The Night Circus is a simply beautiful book that draws you in and you never want to leave. Brilliant storytelling, vivid writing... Readers travel a journey of suspense and wonder, magic and light--immersed in a world we've all dreamed of but never thought we'd get to experience. A classic from the very first page.

The City and the City by China Mieville
The City and the City

Ariel Valladares, January 1, 2012

What an amazing book! The City & Tbe City showcases two cities, side by side and even sometimes overlapping, with citizens that very carefully do not see the citizens in the other city. China Mieville tells this so-much-more-than a murder mystery wonderfully. I've become a great fan of his work, and highly recommend this novel. Enjoy!

The Robber Bride by Margaret Atwood
The Robber Bride

Ariel Valladares, September 22, 2011

An absolute must-read! Wonderfully written and so easy to sink into--the hours spent reading will fly by. Margaret Atwood tells how some people, like Zenia, are just plain bad. Then some people, like Roz, Tony, & Charis, can be cut off at the knees, hearts ripped out their chests, but then rise to live again.

Into the Wilderness by Sara Donati
Into the Wilderness

Ariel Valladares, September 22, 2011

Elizabeth Middleton moves from England, the heart of civilization, to a tiny village in upstate New York. She believed this to be a brand-new chapter in her life, but had no idea what surprises and wishes would arrive in the form of Nathaniel Bonner. So much more than a love story, "Into the Wilderness" takes the reader along a fantastical journey. Intrigue, battles, and forbidden love race across the page and into imagination!

Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier
Cold Mountain

Ariel Valladares, September 22, 2011

A truly beautiful book, "Cold Mountain" is exquisitely written and very moving. Historical fiction is a great genre, and this book just jumps right in, along with a heartbreaking love story. This is a novel that I've been drawn to again and again, being immersed in the language and the story, it doesn't get any better.
