The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat by Edward Kelsey Moore
The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat

Elizabeth R, March 20, 2013

A wonderful, fun book that plays out in your mind like a movie because of the characters. You know them and you love them. I loved this book and I'm looking forward to more from this author. If you liked The Help, Steel Magnolias or Fried Green Tomatoes, read this.

Gone Girl. Gillian Flynn by Gillian Flynn
Gone Girl. Gillian Flynn

Elizabeth R, January 30, 2013

I really had trouble putting this one down! It does just pull you right in with twists that are maddening because then you have to read the next chapter...

The Last Werewolf by Glen Duncan
The Last Werewolf

Elizabeth R, July 21, 2011

I thought that I'd had enough of this genre of werewolves and vampires. This book has proven me wrong. It is witty, sexy, wincingly gory in beautifully written detail, and narrated by the most well read and articulate werewolf in history.

Villa Incognito by Tom Robbins
Villa Incognito

Elizabeth R, July 21, 2011

Do you love Tom Robbins? Did you crave beets after reading Jitterbug Perfume? Villa Incognito will make you want to research and surround yourself with all things chrysanthemum. If you are unfamiliar with Tom Robbins, then read this book and open yourself to the layers and magic that you inhabit when you read his work!

Gilead by Marilynne Robinson
Gilead

Elizabeth R, January 31, 2010

This book, more than any other I have read in a long time, had prose that moved me to tears and filled my heart with joy.
