Standing Recommendations...

Shotgun Lovesongs by Nickolas Butler - I really loved this book and can't explain why. Beautifully written, so that's surely a part of it. A stellar title, that's part of it too. But I think most of it is just falling into its rhythm and rocking in its cadence.

A Hundred Summers by Beatriz Williams - I loved this book. A must read on the beach for summer 2013.

Tigers in Red Weather by Liza Klaussmann 

Rules of Civility by Amor Towles 

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn - I loved this book, even the ending, which I know a lot of people hated. I think it fit the story.

The Dublin Murder Squad books 1-4 by Tana French - I liked them all. Now five is out and I liked that too.

Domestic Violets by Matthew Norman - A good read. I enjoyed the writing a lot.

Mystery/thriller series:
  • Fina Ludlow books by Ingrid Thoft
  • Sue Grafton Kinsey Millhone Mystery Series AKA the Alphabet Books (A is for ... to W is for...)
  • John Sanford Virgil Flowers series
  • Jonathan Kellerman Alex Delaware novels: the last five have been blah, but the early ones are good.
  • Lawrence Sanders: the Archy McNally books
  • Charlaine Harris: the Harper Connelly books
  • Janet Evanovich: the Stephanie Plum novels

  3. Books all the way. I never plan to own an e-reader. Looking some of these up!

  4. I spent the last year exclusively reading memoirs, whilst occasionally stumbling on an interesting blog. To increase your enlightenment of the karmic nature of the universe, I humbly yet passionately suggest you start with Keith Richards - "Life". Loyalty, family and devotion to craft reign supreme. Next, Julia Child's - "My Life in Paris". An adventuresome spirit, a soul mate, an expanded world and devotion to craft are both fascinating and motivating. Then, Pat Conroy, whom you quote, - "My Reading Life". A scarring childhood and a devotion to the craft of writing that will cause you to never to read or write the same
