Room by Emma Donoghue
Room

Carole S, February 9, 2011

Absolutely the best book I have read in a long, long time. It's rare that I find a book that keeps me wide awake and turning the pages until 2 a.m., but "Room" did it...I've never felt so emotionally attached to the characters and plot of a book. "Room" is captivating and well-told. This is definitely one book I'm recommending to everyone.

The Girl Who Played with Fire (Vintage) by Stieg Larsson
The Girl Who Played with Fire (Vintage)

Carole S, May 4, 2010

I don't usually pick up books classified as "thrillers" but after discovering "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" I HAD to run out and get "The Girl Who Played with Fire." Larsson does an amazing job of twisting and turning the plot--every time I thought I had figured something out, I was wrong. Larsson is a fantastic storyteller and his complex characters keep you turning the page.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Carole S, March 16, 2010

An absolutely engrossing page turner, and one of the best books I have read this year--I couldn't put it down. If you have a weekend to sit and read, pick up this book. You won't put it down, and you won't be disappointed.

Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout

Beautifully written and emotionally real. You're sure to find a character you can identify with amid the pages of "Olive Kitteridge."

Paper Towns by John Green
Paper Towns

Carole S, January 27, 2010

Another fantastic book by John Green. "Paper Towns" is witty and captures the essence of the "slightly awkward kid in the midst of high school" perfectly. I laughed out loud and fell in love with Green's writing style and relatable characters. Definitely a must-read.
