My Antonia by Willa Cather and Kathleen Norris

As an American Pioneer buff, I devoured this tale and began my love with Ms. Cather. It’s an amazing gaze into the brief homesteader era of this great land; the women mainly, their resolve, and the collective determination that settled the west.

Romantic, sad, and uplifting. Follow this family through their hard lives on the prairie from a notable lady who grew up in it.

Of the Border Trilogy, this was the most poignantly beautiful. Stunning imagery and character development frame this tome into one of the best novels of our time.

Perfect for a fan of any western, this book is a delight and yet a treachery to get through. The story is heart-wrenching and unforgettable…

Keep that Spanish-English dictionary close by!

A Clash of Kings (A Song of Ice and Fire #2) by George R. R. Martin

Wow. Even better than the first installment. This series is my first venture into the fantasy genre and I couldn't be more hooked.
The book does not closely follow the TV series, so definitely read it first (a million times better anyway). However it does pick up without a beat, introducing a few new characters whilst delving deeper into some less explored in the first volume. I was absolutely glued to every page, gasping out loud more than once at the developments.
Four kings valiantly fight for the Seven Kingdoms. Allegiances form and are then shredded with the knight’s mighty sword. This was non-stop action & suspense and I found myself rooting for all characters (save that punk Joffrey) at different times in the tale.
If you enjoyed the first, it’s an absolute must read
