Not pinning the obvious ones here: the Twilights, the Harry Potters, the mega sellers that everyone reads. I'm just trying to list a few that probably won't make it to the front shelves of your library, or have been out a long while. These are books you definitely need to find!

You may wonder how a BOOK can make you smell food, see food, even TASTE the food described in its pages, but Frances Mayes does exactly that. The movie made it seem like the story was about a woman recovering after a bad breakup. The book? It's a true love story about the author, who, by the way, is already in a fabulous relationship long before the book begins, and a villa, a culture & village. More importantly, it's a love letter to the food she creates in her new home. LOVED this book!

This is why I have never applied to work in a bookstore. I'd owe them more than they'd pay me.

Update FINISHED 4/21/13 - Stephen King is a master storyteller, and developer of characters. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. - MSH 11/22/63 by Stephen King. ON NOVEMBER 22, 1963, THREE SHOTS RANG OUT IN DALLAS, PRESIDENT KENNEDY DIED, AND THE WORLD CHANGED. WHAT IF YOU COULD CHANGE IT BACK? I've heard some good feedback from others who have read it, so I'm curious.

    4/19 Finished, and I'll grant it's a fantastic story. It's still not anywhere as addictive as "The Stand".

What a cool bedspread!

Rules Of Prey by John Sandford This book should come with a warning: Lucas Davenport, along with the other main characters, is highly intelligent, highly flawed, unabashedly quirky, and relentlessly addictive. Good news? There's 23 books in the series, so settle in and enjoy. Bad news? You may miss some sleep. List of books by publication date per author's website: www.johnsandford....

If a book is well written, I always find it too short. - Jane Austen #quotes

I am a product of...endless books. My father bought all the books he read and never got rid of any of them. There were books in the study,...in the drawing room,...in the cloakroom, books (two deep) in the great bookcase on the landing, books in a bedroom,...books of all kinds..., books readable and unreadable, books suitable for a child and books most emphatically not. Nothing was forbidden me. In the seemingly endless rainy afternoons I took volume after volume from the shelves.” C.S. Lewis

She Reads Books, Annie Dillard

This book will scare you a bit, BUT, C.S.Lewis, in my opinion, has never written a terrible book. It'll change the way you live your life.

There was a lengthy season in our lives when I read this book out loud every single night. Ms. Brown wrote with a rhythm that catches you, yet manages to soothe at the same time. Every once in a while, one of my children will pull it off the shelf and ask me to read it again. Sweet. Particularly from my 7th and 8th grade aged lovies. They're voracious readers, too!

Try it and you will see.....it is--it is!!!!

I love these words. Give me a book anyday and I am a happy camper!

Holy Moly...this is SO freaking TRUE. Someone just asked me this the other day, and I stood there with my mouth open because I couldn't even fathom picking just ONE.

Amen & Amen.

First in a trilogy by an original new author. You'll really enjoy the characters.

Sold | This young adult novel is about human trafficking in India and the horrible realities these young girls face. I enjoyed McCormick's verse novel format and the first-person narrative of Lakshmi, a courageous 13-year old girl. I was horrified and on pins and needles most of the book which was easy to read, but difficult to stomach. This is a must read in order to bring awareness to and take action against human trafficking.

Read the book. See the movie. Both are excellent.

Shadow and Bone (The Grisha, #1) by Leigh Bardugo Surrounded by enemies, the once-great nation of Ravka has been torn in two by the Shadow Fold, a swath of near impenetrable darkness crawling with monsters who feast on human flesh. Now its fate may rest on the shoulders of one lonely refugee. (this book is YA -- wildly popular)

Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe: A Novel by Fannie Flagg - The remarkable novel of two Southern friendships--the basis of the hit film.

Death Comes to Pemberley by P.D. James - It is 1803, six years since Elizabeth and Darcy embarked on their life together at Pemberley, Darcy’s magnificent estate. Then, Lydia, Elizabeth’s disgraced sister, stumbles out of the carriage, hysterical, shrieking that her husband Wickham has been murdered. With shocking suddenness, Pemberley is plunged into a frightening mystery. (Bilbary Town Library: Good for Readers, Good for Libraries)

Excellent first by a new author. The second installment, "Insurgent" is already out. It's good, but not as addictive as the first.

This book made me laugh out loud so many times! I kept having to stop and read passages out loud to my husband so he could laugh, too. Then he read it and did the same to me. We both loved this book! Too bad the author wrote a second book; she should have stopped with this one, shining success.
