This Shattered World: A Starbound Novel (Starbound) by Amie Kaufman
This Shattered World: A Starbound Novel (Starbound)

Reader Eternal, January 12, 2015

This stunning second installment of the Starbound trilogy simply took my breath away. The complexity and originality of the storyline combines with the singularly compelling characters to create something truly remarkable. Though this science fiction novel takes place in an imagined world far from our own, the core of the story is not about alien life forms or terraformed planets; the real heart of this story is the vagaries and complexities of the human heart, the beauty and wonder and terror of the human condition and the bonds between us. This book is, in a word, unforgettable.

Mitford Years #10: Somewhere Safe with Somebody Good: The New Mitford Novel by Jan Karon
Mitford Years #10: Somewhere Safe with Somebody Good: The New Mitford Novel

Reader Eternal, January 1, 2015

This beautiful novel is like a warm blanket and a hot cup of tea on a cold winter's night. As a longtime fan of the Mitford series, I was overjoyed to read this new installment. Cracking the cover and settling into this story felt like sinking into a favorite pair of slippers---warm, comforting, and restorative. There is something very special about this series. Jan Karon writes with compassion and grace, and both are found in abundance in this story. These characters are so real and so compelling. If you are already a Mitford fan---rejoice! And if you haven't yet read these beautiful books---you are in for a wonderful surprise.

Raven Cycle #3: Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater
Raven Cycle #3: Blue Lily, Lily Blue

Reader Eternal, November 20, 2014

If anyone can make a grown-up person believe in magic, it's the incomparable Maggie Stiefvater. This third installment in "The Raven Cycle" is a veritable garden of wonders both terrifying and beautiful. I don't know how to adequately describe this series except to say that it is like absolutely nothing else out there. Not only is the storyline mind-blowingly unique and fascinating, but the characters are so compelling, so real, so believable that they live in my mind with an immediacy that few characters can match. Maggie Stiefvater is a master storyteller. If you pick up this book, prepare to have your heart and mind moved to wonder beyond imagining.

5th Wave #02: The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey
5th Wave #02: The Infinite Sea

Reader Eternal, November 12, 2014

Oh, Rick Yancey---where have you been all my life? I knew from the very first sentence that this second installment of "The 5th Wave" trilogy was going to be just as stunning as the first. This is everything I've ever wanted in a post-apolcalyptic story and then some. It's simply breathtaking. This story is like nothing I've read before. It's haunting, heartbreaking, chill-inducing, mind-boggling, jaw-dropping, terrifying, and so indescribably beautiful. Rick Yancey continues to illuminate the essential question of what it really means to be human. If you are searching for a novel that will capture both your imagination and your heart, you need look no further.
