The novel, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, was so unusual. It was so fascinating how he tied the old photographs in to the characters. It had a hint of Harry Potter.

I always take a break from depressing stories by reading Alexander McCall Smith. His novels always put a smile on my face. Will HBO please bring back the series?

Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts is one of the greatest, esp. if you have visited India.

I agree, I love the Outlander series. My favorite books of all time. Her historical research is every bit as good as James Mitchner and the Jamie and Claire's love story touches me everytime I read the books. I've read the series 5 times.

I love all of Diane Gabaldon's books about Jamie and Claire.

My other favorite author is Sharon Kay Penmen.

My newest interest is in the Trilogy written by Deborah Harkness, I am reading the second book.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'm always looking for new authors and good reads. Have you read any of Karen Marie Moning's books. Her Highlander series is pretty good and her Fever series is fantastic. The Fever series has another very hot hero, Jericho Barrons. He's very different from Jamie though. Not human and no, he's not a vampire or a werewolf. :) Not sure what he is.

Unbroken was a great book that shows the power of the human spirit.

A Violet Season, by Kathy Leonard Czepiel. Her first published novel, and I hope the first of many. I highly recommend it. You'll love it.

I liked Hunger Game best so far.

Full Body Burden: Growing Up in the Nuclear Shadow of Rocky Flats
This is the best book I have read in the past 10 years. I literally could not put it down. With 40+ years in the nuclear industry, I particularly recommend this book to anyone who ever worked in the nuclear industry or lived in the vicinity of a nuclear plant. But it is a fascinating read for anyone. Great book!!!

For me my two favorite books of the year "Once we were brothers" was outstanding. I also loved "Me before you" by Jojo Moyes. Both books hard to put down.

Will probably finish reading "Gone Girl" today, great book. Also loved "The Hunger Games" Trilogy, "The Art of Racing In The Rain". Was kind of disappointed by "The Last Policeman": interesting story idea, but the story didn't fully live up to it's potential.

Fifty Shades of Grey was the best book that I have read in a long time. I read all three books within a four day span. They were wonderful, hot, but wonderful.

Ages Past by Casper Parks is a work of art. My favorite, now.Ages Past: The Isolation (Volume 1)

Enjoyed 1 & 3 felt the 2nd book was weakest. Trilogy is worth the effort.

The Girl with the dragon tattoo trilogy is a must read, but accept that the movies did stick strongly to the books. Light years ahead of the Hunger Games trilogy which I also felt is worth the effort.
Also have a look at Jo Nesbo with a tranche of books following his disfunctional detective.

Hard to choose between Tell the Wolves I'm Home and Albert of Adelaide.

The Fault in Our Stars is the one that stayed w/ me most this year. Brilliant.

Agreed. Unbroken is the best book I have read in a couple of years. His body and soul are indestructible.

Though I may be old and out of date the books by A.J. Cronin, Northern Light, Judas Tree, The Green Years, Shannon's Way, Beyond This Place, The Citadel all had a Scottish anti-class system ring. Well written and meaningful message.

Just finished new writer's first book Dark Corners by Liz Schulte was very good....plan to read her next 2 books to see how her writing progresses.

Fifty Shades of Grey of course!! I also loved Beautiful Disaster!!!!

My favorite book is "Tale of Two Cities" by Charles Dickens. I've read it , at least, once a year since 10th grade;and that's a great many years ago.
