Matterhorn: A Novel of the Vietnam War by Karl Marlantes
Matterhorn: A Novel of the Vietnam War

5 isn't high enough...
Who needs vampires when you can read about human beings
in a war in the bush living in "hell". Vampires can't begin to compare
with a story about humans killing each other during a war that
didn't make sense. This powerful novel will get under your skin
and stay there.

A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness
A Discovery of Witches

I am loving this book right now. It is fun to read a book that combines
witches and vampires with sophistication and history. It takes place on a
college campus in a library. The characters are professors of history and
science. It is fun and interesting and thoroughly addicting!

The Invisible Bridge (Vintage Contemporaries) by Julie Orringer
The Invisible Bridge (Vintage Contemporaries)

This book has stayed with me long after I finished it. I cared about the characters as I followed their lives, loves and challenges.
I learned about history and traveled to remote areas of the world. I learned about architecture and medicine. I will recommend
this book to my friends and their book clubs.
