The Goldfinch: A Novel (Pulitzer Prize for Fiction) by Donna Tartt. Fiction at its best! The story revolves around a priceless Dutch masterpiece painting that has gone missing after a terrorist explosion at the NY Metropolitan Museum of Art. It has enough twists and turns to keep you reading long past the place you may have wanted to stop. The writing and description is magnificent!
My favorite book of the last year. The Goldfinch: A Novel (Pulitzer Prize for Fiction) by Donna Tartt, www.amazon.com/...

The Goldfinch: A Novel (Pulitzer Prize for Fiction) by Donna Tartt, c. 2013. Gary says: Despite all of the hype and the stellar book reviews this novel was tough going for me. "Goldfinch" is compared to Dickens novels by many reviewers, but let me say that I never have this much trouble keeping an interest in a Dickens title. I did enjoy some of the character, Hobie for example, but all in all way to long and way too much angst.
The Goldfinch: A Novel by Donna Tartt. One of the best books I've read in a long time. The story revolves around a priceless Dutch masterpiece painting that has gone missing after a terrorist explosion at the NY Metropolitan Museum of Art. The writing and description is magnificent!

The Magician King by Lev Grossman. It's a good read, like Harry Potter meets Less Than Zero.
Lev Grossman’s The Magicians was one of my favorite books of 2009.
June 2012 pick: The magician king : a novel / Lev Grossman.
Apparently the Harry Potter withdrawal cure. Will be adding this to my reading list for June
The Magicians: A Novel by Lev Grossman - a gritty, modern take on Harry Potter meets Narnia

The Magicians by Lev Grossman. It's a cross between Harry Potter, the Chronicles of Narnia, and every other classic fantasy series (and includes allusions to all). However, it is an adult book and includes some graphic scenes that the typical Harry Potter fan may not be keen on.

The Language of Flowers: A Novel By Vanessa Diffenbaugh List Price: $15.00 Price:$8.98 The Victorian language of flowers was used to convey romantic expressions: honeysuckle for devotion, asters for patience, and red roses for love. But for Victoria Jones, it’s been more useful in communicating mistrust and solitude.
Interesting book, as much for the Victorian "language of flowers" as the plot. Worth reading.

This is one of my favorite books! Gone Girl: A Novel by Gillian Flynn
11.22.63, combines a variety of genres, being a JFK assassination, a story of time travel, a variation on the grail quest, a novel of voyeurism, a love story, a historical novel, a counter-factual historical novel and the chilling tale of a sinister animate universe, a form which can be traced back to the ghost stories of MR James.' -- London Review of Books

GREAT book about time travel.
"After reading the book jacket, the prologue, the entire text and the afterwards, I am going to recommend this book to everyone. THIS IS NOT A STEPHEN KING HORROR THRILLER. Though it might be considered Sci-Fi, it really is all in all, a great piece of fiction by one of the greatest writers of his generation", quote by Adam Knight , this IS going to be next!
Friendly Women of Evanston Book Club -story of a young German girl. I liked it because it showed a little of what WWII was like in Germany from the German viewpoint.
