The Passage: A Novel by Justin Cronin, http://www.amazon.com/dp/0345528174/ref=cm_sw_r_pi_dp_BsG6qb1X5YXWS Complicated, sometimes laborious read, this vampire series is interesting. It's the anti-vampire book in a society where vampires are supposedly sexy and intriguing.

Seraphina by Rachel Hartman, In a (medieval?) time, in a royal court, there is a musician who has to hide her true identity. Dragons are attempting to integrate into human society taking the form of humans, albeit not always successfully. Seraphina struggles with her own family secrets while trying to prevent Dragons and humans from all-out war. Interesting premise if not a little predictable. There is some romance but not an overwhelming love story. Good story, but not mind blowing.

Gone Girl: A Novel by Gillian Flynn, http://www.amazon.com/dp/030758836X/ref=cm_sw_r_pi_dp_AlwXqb12M9ST1 I was impressed by how well the author articulated the ways in which people in "love" start to tear each other down. Don't look for any justice here, though. I was angry by the lack of a satisfactory ending.

Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail (Oprah's Book Club 2.0) by Cheryl Strayed, http://www.amazon.com/dp/0307592731/ref=cm_sw_r_pi_dp_0kG6qb15H9KW2 Less self-indulgent than "Eat Pray Love" but more self-pitying. Good read regardless and a good adventure. I have never heard of such generosity on the trail! Made me want to go out West.

Packing for Mars: The Curious Science of Life in the Void by Mary Roach: Just when you think being an astronaut is a dream, you read a book like this and BAM! You know you were designed for this earth, all this gravity, and flushing toilets. Bizarre and entertaining read about some of NASA's less-than- public research attempting to solve very serious problems revolving around humans in space. Hilarious.

Continental Drift (P.S.) by Russell Banks, http://www.amazon.com/dp/0060854944/ref=cm_sw_r_pi_dp_SoG6qb0687X2H Read about this book in another book: I am completely flummoxed! Someone wrote that the protagonist is a “moral” man trying to do right in an amoral world…. If this guy represents the morality of contemporary Americans, than we are a sad and pathetic lot. I don’t understand the allure of this book.

The Lives They Left Behind: Suitcases from a State Hospital Attic by Darby Penney, Peter Statsny, and photos by Lisa Rinzler. It was a book that took 10yrs to come together and contains the photos & stories of nearly 400 suitcases...and their owners. "...deeply moving testament to the human side of mental illness, and the narrow margin between the sane and the insane." -Oliver Sacks, MD

Outlander: A Novel by Diana Gabaldon, 1947 married women travels back 200 years in Scotland. Adventure, danger, and love ensue. I love the history! Unfortunately, I was disappointed in a certain episode of violence between the two main characters. I find it difficult to get into stories where there is abuse: there can be no further romance in my opinion. Well-loved story though, and a lot of people will disagree with my assessment.
