Where'd You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple
Where'd You Go, Bernadette

Elisabeth Scherer, October 13, 2013

I read one of the reviews of this book that compared Ms. Semple to Jane Austen and as I put the book down and think back to it I have to agree with a huge smile. I loved this book, devoured it in less than 12 hours and loved every minute of it. The ending snuck up on me which I always like. It's humorous and endearing and as a fellow Pacific Norwest transplant I connected with Bernadette on so many levels.

Highly recommend this book.

One of Our Thursdays Is Missing by Jasper Fforde
One of Our Thursdays Is Missing

Jasper Fforde has written another amazing chapter in this great series. The point of view and plot of the book is unique and very interesting. I couldn't put the book down. His laugh out loud wit, nod to literature of all genres, and unfathomable imagination with his story telling has me a fan for life. Any bookworm will love the idea of BookWorld and the famous characters that make an appearance in this series.

Circus Galacticus
Circus Galacticus

Elisabeth Scherer, January 15, 2012

Circus Galacticus was a page turner! It's exciting and full of wonderful characters and kept me guessing until the very end (which is a rarity in books). What a wonderful new world to explore and I hope to read more about them all. Ms. Fagan does a wonderful job with creating a main character to relate to and to struggle with as she has to make tough decisions. I would recommend this book to any young reader who dreams of space adventures or even feels like they don't belong.

Thursday Next: First Among Sequels (Thursday Next Novels) by Jasper Fforde
Thursday Next: First Among Sequels (Thursday Next Novels)

Elisabeth Scherer, June 5, 2011

I really enjoyed this the 5th in the series. It's been quite a while since I had read one of this series and I continually found myself in awe with the world that Jasper Fforde has created. As a person who likes artistic endeavors I find myself a bit covetous of this original idea. So glad I have the 6th book on my shelf to read next! I picked up the first book in the series, The Eyre Affair on a whim, read it, loved it so much that I read the entire book out loud to my husband while on road trips and we've kept it a tradition ever since! Highly recommend this author!

Finger Lickin' Fifteen (Stephanie Plum Novels) by Janet Evanovich
Finger Lickin' Fifteen (Stephanie Plum Novels)

Elisabeth Scherer, July 26, 2010

And the saga of Stephanie Plum continues with this book. Ms. Evanovich finds cleaver fiascos for Stephanie and the supporting wacky characters I love were all there in all their glory. The tension between Ranger - Stephanie - and Morelli is steamy and I can't help but like both males for the qualities. Would definitely recommend this because it is laugh out loud funny.
