My Brother Michael My Brother Michael
by Mary Stewart

Mary Stewart is rightly acclaimed for creating wonderfully robust settings in her books, which serve as much more than mere stage backdrops to the action. So strong is the sense of place, sometimes, that the setting almost becomes a character or a plot device in its own right. Such is the case with 'My Brother Michael,' which I picked up in honor of Mary Stewart Reading Week. The place is Delphi, on the slopes of Mount Parnassus in Greece, once considered the navel of the world and still one of the most numinous sites of the Western world. While telling one of her thrilling tales of mystery and danger, Stewart also manages to evoke the spirit of Greece, both ancient and modern, in a strikingly vivid way. (read more)

The Terror The Terror
by Dan Simmons

An incredible read! The complete loss of Lord Franklin's expedition has intrigued me since I first heard 'The Ballad of Lord Franklin' years ago....You don't have to be versed in the history to appreciate the story, however. Instead of the typical horror story reaction of 'Don't open that door!' it will be 'Don't set off for the Arctic as winter is approaching!' (read more)

The Good Life Lab: Radical Experiments in Hands-On Living The Good Life Lab: Radical Experiments in Hands-On Living
by Wendy Tremayne

This book is an intriguing and useful mix of Tremayne's personal story from New York City to off-the-grid and a guide to creating and building the structures she details in the book, such as mixing paper concrete to build domes....I enjoyed this book because it is both readable on its own and serves as a guide to following her steps exactly. The tone is open and friendly and I was impressed. (read more)

Stuff Matters: Exploring the Marvelous Materials That Shape Our Man-Made World Stuff Matters: Exploring the Marvelous Materials That Shape Our Man-Made World
by Mark Miodownik

'Stuff Matters' is the first book I've ever read on materials science and found it fascinating and the perfect introduction! The language used in the book is not too scientific so it's so easy to understand whilst learning so much....I cannot express how perfect this book was in my opinion and I will definitely be continuing to look into both Mark Miodownik and materials science!

In the Lake of the Woods In the Lake of the Woods
by Tim O'Brien

How could I not have read this book sooner? It's been around since 1994. Maybe you, too, have been missing out on 'In the Lake of the Woods' for 20 years. Read it now....[I]t's the way this story is told that makes this book unputdownable....I won't spoil the story. Read it. And read the footnotes. (read more)

Isaac's Storm: A Man, a Time, and the Deadliest Hurricane in History Isaac's Storm: A Man, a Time, and the Deadliest Hurricane in History
by Erik Larson

I have always been a fan of Erik Larson, but somehow I missed the book 'Isaac's Storm.'...This book was so fascinating about the hurricane in Galveston at the turn of the century. I really could not put it down until finished....It is historical fiction and a great read. Take a chance, especially if you love Erik Larson. (read more)
