The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
The Night Circus

i8pixistix, September 10, 2012

It's been a long time since I've been so taken in by a book. Erin Morgenstern weaves together an incredible, magical, fantastic and evocative tale with such fluid use of prose. Words and scenes played in my head even when I wasn't reading. This is one of those stories that stays with you long after you've finished.

A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness
A Discovery of Witches

i8pixistix, January 19, 2012

Weaving the fantastic with the historical, Deborah Harkness spins a convincing tale of the supernatural. Well-developed characters and a an enthralling plot move the story swiftly along and suddenly you find yourself at the end. I'm really looking forward to the next installment in the trilogy.

Citizens of London: The Americans Who Stood with Britain in Its Darkest, Finest Hour by Lynne Olson
Citizens of London: The Americans Who Stood with Britain in Its Darkest, Finest Hour

i8pixistix, March 9, 2010

I love when factual/historical books read like a novel and Lynne Olson accomplishes this feat with her incredible telling in Citizens of London. The reader will feel a whole gamut of emotions including the tension, the frustration and the eventual relief in the time leading up to our involvement in WWII just as Edward R. Murrow, Averell Harriman, and John Gilbert Winant did.

Half Broke Horses: A True-Life Novel

i8pixistix, March 9, 2010

Lily Casey Smith has sass, gumption, focus, drive, wit and intelligence and in a first-person account with her grandmother's voice, Jeannette Walls gives us another outstanding book filled with wonderful stories.
