Killing Floor (Jack Reacher Novels) by Lee Child
Killing Floor (Jack Reacher Novels)

peeper_j, January 30, 2013

This is the first Jack Reacher novel. It is fast-paced, has great dialogue, an intriguing storyline and a fastinating protagonist. What more could one want? Fortunately I read it before I knew Tom Cruise was going to play Jack Reacher in the movie, so I have a vision of Jack Reacher in my mind. Tom Cruise shows no resemblance to my version of Jack. I have since read the second book and will certainly read the third and beyond.

The Name of the Wind (The Kingkiller Chronicles #1) by Patrick Rothfuss
The Name of the Wind (The Kingkiller Chronicles #1)

peeper_j, January 1, 2011

This is perhaps the best book I have ever read, not just the best in 2010. This is a coming of age story, a mystery, a fantasy and so much more. Patrick Rothfuss has created a fascinating world for an unforgettable character, Kvothe. It is the first in a trilogy with the second book to be available on March 1, 2011.

The Second Coming of Curly Red by Jody Seay

peeper_j, January 2, 2010

This book made me laugh out loud, cry with grief, feel pride in the determination of people who succeed, and so many other emotions. Jody Seay is a wonderful story-teller.
