The Scorch Trials by James Dashner
The Scorch Trials

Waney, December 31, 2012

Wow. That was a thrill ride! James Dashner really knows how to ratchet up the tension. There are twists and turns and crazy plot developments aplenty, and I felt like a ballerina for as much as I was on my toes reading this. This isn't a book one skims - blink and you've missed a shift and the story is now going in a completely unexpected direction. A truly exciting read.

The Dark Frontier by Eric Ambler
The Dark Frontier

Waney, December 31, 2012

Ambler uses the tired plot device of amnesia in a delightful way -- perhaps it wasn't a cliche when he wrote this, but it still serves to reinforce the relative innocence of his time. This is a book that can be read in a single long evening, and I heartily recommend it.

City of Dark Magic by Magnus Flyte
City of Dark Magic

Waney, December 31, 2012

For those who like reads that involve history, historical landmarks, mystery, magic/paranormal and good characters, then this book is for you. If you like stories with similar undertones written by the likes of Dan Brown, then this book is for you. By now you know that Magnus Flyte is definitely not a man, and although written by two ladies ��" you’d never say. This reads as if one person wrote this book, and I liked the style of writing very much. Good, good stuff! I certainly think so.

Phantom by Jo Nesbo
Phantom

Waney, December 31, 2012

Having read all the books Sheldon has written, you feel no other book, no other author can do justice to mystery, thriller or crime the way he did. Having picked up The Phantom and now after reading the book, I know how wrong I was. This man is a genius. This book is the ninth in what essentially is the Harry Hole series. Now I had no idea that such a man existed who is such a terrific writer.

The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley
The Mists of Avalon

Waney, December 31, 2012

This is by far my favorite reading experience. . I would read, and my elbows would go numb, so I would lay on my back until my thumbs hurt, and then flip over again. I had read some Zimmer Bradley in high school and enjoyed it, Firebrand and the one about trapeze artists, but I hadn't been swallowed by the story, hadn't consumed it in turn, like I did with this book. She blew my post-adolescent mind with her view of history, of legend, of the long, dark story of men and women. Totally recommended.
