Wizard's First Rule (Sword of Truth #1) by Terry Goodkind
Wizard's First Rule (Sword of Truth #1)

Melissa Frazell, January 7, 2014

I think this is one of the best fantasy books/series I've ever read. This first book sucked me right in. Terry Goodkind knows how to write an amazing story. The first couple books are monsters, and you'd think that there would be lulls in such a large book, but you'd be wrong. It never gets boring, and sweeps you right along until the last page.

The Wind through the Keyhole: A Dark Tower Novel by Stephen King
The Wind through the Keyhole: A Dark Tower Novel

I absolutely loved the Dark Tower series, and was sad when I finished the last book. So I was thrilled when he announced a new book. It was very interesting to read more about Roland and his past. I recommend this to anyone who loved the Dark Tower books as much as I did.

Relic by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child

Melissa Frazell, August 8, 2012

This is the perfect example of a good, classic thriller. It has great characters, a unique plot, and lots of action. The only bad thing? You might lose some sleep because you won't want to stop reading.

11/22/63 by Stephen King

This is Stephen King at his best. This amazing story will keep you reading late into the night. It's books like this that make me extra thankful that he didn't retire.

The Ivory and the Horn (Tor Fantasy) by Charles De Lint
The Ivory and the Horn (Tor Fantasy)

Melissa Frazell, September 1, 2011

This is a wonderful book of short stories. Charles de Lint has an amazing way with words. His modern fantasy stories sweep you up and take you into a world similar to ours, but with some interesting and curious things happening. The characters in the stories are always interesting, making me want to know more about them. Lucky for me, de Lint's characters show up in multiple books.
