10 Favorite Fiction Reads: Summer 2013

A Trick of the Light by Louise Penny Its all about forgiveness. This theme takes many forms in the nicely drawn character driven mystery. Chief Inspector Gamache is on the case again. Everyone has some baggage to carry through this story. What's the motive that drives the killer. This is one of the better in this series.

Amulet, Vol. 1 by Kazu Kibuishi. Recommended for: Graphic Novel and/or Fantasy readers who want a strong female protaganist and a new take on elves in a beautifully imagined steampunk-esque underground world full of robots, demons, and mysterious power-filled amulets.

Heft by Liz Moore: This was beautifully written. A handful of incredibly flawed, lonely but oh-so-real characters jumped off the page. I found this to be compelling, touching and openly honest about humans and their flaws. This is one of those rare books that you close the covers on at the end and wish there were more pages, yet have fun imagining on your own what might come next. Would highly recommend.
