Library of Souls: The Third Novel of Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Library of Souls: The Third Novel of Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children

A rollicking, rolling, adventurous conclusion to the Miss Peregrine trilogy. The peculiar children realize their many strengths as they try to save themselves and their guardians from the Wights and Hollows. The people and others met along the way add to the story in a most peculiar fashion. The whole trilogy with all the, often, wonderfully spooky pictures is a different type of book with a great story. I highly recommend the whole series.

California by Edan Lepucki

A very interesting take on the whole apocalyptic scenario. Getting into the minds of the primary characters was interesting. The secrets, lack of trust, the underlying motivations for actions. Some of the characters personalities were flat and at times the writing was boring. However, the premise was interesting.

Servant: The Awakening by L L Foster
Servant: The Awakening

If you like urban fantasy you may like this though the descriptions of killing demons is rather graphic at times. Not for the weak of stomach. The "heroine" in this series feels her ability to detect evil is a God given talent and if not used, it causes her great pain. Throw in a cop who is fascinated with her and friends she makes along the way when she has never had true friends before and you have an interesting mix of characters. I have enjoyed the series and hope you do too.

The Innocent by David Baldacci
The Innocent

I just started reading Baldacci's books a week or so ago and cannot put them down. There are several series going so try to start at the beginning so you have the backstory. If you like suspense/thriller, this is the guy to read. The Will Robie series, which starts with The Innocent, was excellent and I have just started the John Puller series which is also excellent. The stories and the details are great and I think you will enjoy Mr. Baldacci's books.

Close Range: Wyoming Stories by Annie Proulx
Close Range: Wyoming Stories

Margie, April 14, 2015

I am not sure what all the hoopla is for this author. After the first story, I wanted to stop reading the book but am one of those people who had to read it all. Her wordy descriptions made me think of writing an essay where you had to have at least 1000 words before the teacher would accept it. Instead of stories, I felt like she was simply giving descriptions. I assume she is writing for the so called "intellectual" and though I am not stupid, when reading fiction I like stories with content and an ending. You know, old school. So many of her stories were just left hanging. In other words, I am glad I got this book for a buck at a library sale and did not waste more money on it.
