I'll Be Watching You by Charles De Lint
I'll Be Watching You

Melissa Frazell, May 31, 2011

This story is a bit different, a little darker, than de Lint's typical books. Don't let that scare you away. de Lint has this way with words and stories that always just grab you right from the beginning. The stories flow so well, and the characters are so interesting you don't want to stop reading. This book is no exception. It keeps you on the edge of your seat.

I loved this story. I kept trying to put myself into the main characters shoes, and imagine what it would be like to only be able to communicate with gestures. I thoroughly enjoyed stepping into his life and reading about the failures and successes. It's a heartfelt book that will stick with you for a long time.

Mockingjay (The Hunger Games #3) by Suzanne Collins

What an amazing end to a wonderful series. I don't normally read the YA books, but I had heard so many good things about this series from friends that I just had to see for myself. I'm glad I did. The storyline and the writing is superb. I didn't want to put any of these books down. The characters were well developed... so much so that you get attached to them.

Dreams Underfoot: The Newford Collection by Charles de Lint
Dreams Underfoot: The Newford Collection

Melissa Frazell, February 3, 2010

Depending on what review you read, or which list you look at, this is sometimes considered the first book in de Lint's Newford series. Chronologically, it's the second, although all of his books can be read in any order. The advantage to reading them in order is the same characters will show up in different novels. de Lint's style of writing flows like water, taking you along on an amazing adventures of magic and fantasy.

An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon

Sometimes a series starts getting old and tired, but not this one. This is the 7th book in the series, and I still found myself reading furiously, wanting to know what happens next. This grand saga, filled with drama, history, love and suspense is a must read. Every person I have suggested this series to has been pulled in, reading every book in the series as quickly as they could.
