I love weird romance, anything with a bonnie and clyde feel, I like a book that disturbs me.

S. Yakish - you might like a novella called "Pursuit" - it's a classic and practically started the sweat-popping suspense genre, but it's so good it sorta transcends "genre." You can read it in a day, and probably won't forget it. Not sure if it's even in print.

If you haven't read "The Postman Always Rings Twice," you gotta! Talk about weird romance, bonnie and clyde feel, disturbing! Whoa! James Cain can write a killer story, and this is one of my favorites. Very short, too - about 110 pages.

The book that I am reading is very good it is called Orchardist author Amanda Coplin. You can see and feel the way she writes like the trees.

For SciFi readers...WOOL, it will be a classic. Also Divergent and Insurgent. Very amusing.

You may want to check Linda Francis Lee, all her books are great.

I want to read another book like Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn which I LOVED! (I have read her previous books as well). Anything like that out there?

If you want to be disturbed, try Gillian Flynn's "Dark Places". Really good story, quasi-romance, but disturbing.

Michael Sears "Black Fridays" or Brian Gruley's "Skeleton Box". Great writing up there with Harlan Coben and Stephen White.

A must read for SciFi/History buffs, reading the new release of Troy Jackson's "The Elementals" is intrigue, scheming, plotting rolled into one masterful page turner!The Elementals

The Last Supper Catering Company. Should be on Oprah's List, too! Funny, tender, life-affirming. You will fall in love with B. Thankful-Childe.

Shaping Kate, a first work by Hazel Stearns, has to be the sleeper of the year. Her novel tells the wonderful tale of a young "tomboy," growing through her pre-adolescent years in a Southern California high desert town of just a few hundred people. Her word picture could reflect any small town in America and her glimpse of mid-20th century America is just wonderful. It is a book for any young girl, of any age and actually, for us men too, as her reviews are indicating. She has captured the America those of us over 60 grew up in.

I'd like to suggest my own book, The Strategic Intelligence of Trust. It's available in Kindle and in paperback. It's concerned with my hypothesis that trust is life's primary biological function, and evolved as such as a determinant of the differences between natures competitive processes which we've come to call either trusted, distrusted or deceptive. Critics have objected that trust and deception are human concepts and not functional. But of course I feel and believe, for reasons outlined in this small book, that they are wrong, and we need to look at all our concepts differently as a result.
Of course you will need to have some interest in the philosophy of evolution to want to look at this subject at all. But those who do find that subject interesting should want to.The Strategic Intelligence of Trust: Life, an Evolutionary Force of Nature

Please read "Stones From the River" by Ursula Hegi. It's a novel that is written like poetry. The main character is a young dwarf woman growing up during WWII who runs a pay library with her father. The reader sees the world through her eyes. I must have read parts of the book 5 or 6 times. It made me a better writer.

Riggs Crossing by Michelle Renee Heeter. The reader is captured in the first page and a half. Imagery is strong and instantaneous. The story flows without the reader knowing they're reading. The differences in verbiage is fun and the dose of humor quite a surprise. Everyone should be able dislike "Bindi and Cinnamon" easily. Everyone will likewise be pulling for Len, much like "Rudy" in the movie by the same name. I can see this as a film women twelve and up go to see or rent. Len played by a 1970's Linda Blair type and Karen played by a young Drew Barrymore. I liked the foreshadowing keeping me in the vicinity of some events, part of, and culminating in the ending. I rarely read anything cover to cover but certainly did. (http://fordstreetpublishing.com and http://www.michelleheeter.com/)

Set Up By God by Prophetess Joann Brown. This is an inspirational book that talks about a woman who battled breast cancer, discrimination, abuse and losted some of her loved ones but overcame all obstacles through God's grace and help. It will inspire and motivate you to keep moving on and trust in God even when things seem to be against you.
