THE SILENCE OF THE TREES by Valya Dudycz Lupescu - A real gem of a book and only 99 cents on nook!

I was thrilled to find a couple weeks ago that John Maxim released all his books for Nook and highly recommend his writing to anyone who enjoys thrillers with very human twists and aspects.
Also in the last couple weeks I have read and enjoyed The Camelot Papers by Peter David (even wrote a review on that one) but it did cost me a night's sleep.
Also enjoyed Fort Freak from the Wildcards series helmed by George RR Martin, Electric Barracuda by Tim Dorsey, Ghost Story by Jim Butcher and Last Son of Krypton by Kevin J Anderson,

Anything by Rob Thurman. The Cal Leandros Series is full of fun, snark and plenty of bad guys to defeat and lots of brotherly love. The Korsak brothers series Chimera and Basilisk are awesome thrillers with a scifi twist worthy of Dean Koontz. The Trixter series is also full of fun snark and plenty of bad guys to defeat but it also has enough twists and turns to keep you guessing and cheering!

A friend suggested The Hunger Games series.  I finished the first one last night then downloaded The Help.  I am pretty excited.

I loved the book Adriane on the Edge by Paul Mendlebaum.  In fact... I need to read it again!  I love books that intertwine tragedy and comedy because they seem to feel more true to life.

I would suggest the new Richard Paul Evans book for young adults.  It is called Michael Vey:smileytongue:risoner of Cell 25.  You don't have to be a young adult to enjoy this one!  As usual, Mr. Evans has written another best seller!!  This book has a good message and exciting storyline.

The Kitchen House - can't recommend highly enough.  Light enough to read in small bites but the gallop to the end did cost several hours sleep.  Very satisfying ending.

The last book I recommended to a friend was The Help.  I also recommended The Art of Racing in The Rain (Garth Stein) and The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (Mary Ann Shaffer & Annie Barrows).  Love them!

Dorothea  Benton Frank. One of the best southern writers around these days.  If you like 'The Help', you may have missed several years worth of Ms Frank's works of characters and fun in the low country

Dan Abnett's Embedded. Really interesting Military Science Fiction piece. I'm also enjoying Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell thanks to the discount B&N had on it a little while back. I can already tell I'll be recommending this around as well. :smileywink:

I recommend a new author, Richard Alan.  His debut novel is "Meant to Be".  It is an endearing story of three generations of a family and the search for each person's soulmate, the person they are meant to be with.  I loved the characters and the depth of feeling conveyed by the author.  I'm looking forward to reading more from Mr. Alan.

The two best books I've read recently are The 13th Hour, by Richard Doetsch and No Rest for the Dead, by 26 different thriller/myster writers, http://tinyurl.com/NoRestForTheDead . I found both almost impossible to put down.

A Dance with Dragons by Martin was everything I had hoped for. Over 1000 pages of pure magic. I will be slowly going crazy waiting for the next book.
