Kronos Chronicles Trilogy #03: The Jewel of the Kalderash: The Kronos Chronicles: Book III by Marie Rutkoski
Kronos Chronicles Trilogy #03: The Jewel of the Kalderash: The Kronos Chronicles: Book III

This series was fabulous, and the ending was the perfect mix of bitter and sweet. Petra loses something prized, but wins what's important.

All Clear by Connie Willis

I have eagerly awaited this book since reading the first half of the story in Blackout. The sequel did not disappoint. Connie Willis has the ability to keep you guessing, keep you interested, and keep you emotionally involved with characters throughout. Fantastic!

Somehow Form a Family: Stories That Are Mostly True by Tony Earley
Somehow Form a Family: Stories That Are Mostly True

Mary Davis, January 1, 2010

I picked up this book at the library for no particular reason other than I liked the title. I am not from the south, I was not raised how the author was raised, and I though I had almost no common experiences with the people in his book. Then, after 3 stories, I decided I need to buy the book so I don't cry when it has to be returned to the library. It's that good. I'm going to hunt down his fiction next.

Human Croquet by Kate Atkinson
Human Croquet

Mary Davis, October 3, 2008

This book served as my Kate Atkinson gateway drug. Read it at your own risk - you may find yourself combing the aisles for more of her surreal, compelling, filled-with-coincidences fiction.
