The Chalk Man - C.J. Tudor

The Chalk Man by C. J. Tudor is an unusually gripping mystery somewhat reminiscent of Arthur Conan Doyle's story, "The Adventure of the Dancing Men." It is amazingly well written, and the pace does not let up, from the shocking beginning all the way through to the unsettling ending. This suspenseful page-turner will keep you riveted, and is definitely a cut above. Highly recommended!

Razor Girl - Carl Hiaasen

My mother first introduced me to Carl Hiaasen when I was sick with the flu in high school. I needed something to do while I was awake and could barely move, so I read all of his works up to that point. All of his books are good, some are amazing, and then there are ones that are so amazing they are like nothing else you have ever read.

Razor Girl, his newest, is one of those books, it is out of this world hysterical, edgy, and most importantly, answers some of today's burning questions: Can you shave and drive at the same time? How do you handle a monstrosity being built obstructing your amazing water view? Or what to do with an erection lasting longer than four hours if you don't want to go to the doctor?

This book is honestly laugh out loud, one of his finest. Read it and weep, and then maybe go get yourself a clean razor!

The Shadow of the Wind - Carlos Ruiz Zafón

"...few things leave a deeper mark on a reader than the first book that finds its way into his heart. Those first images, the echo of words we think we have left behind, accompany us throughout our lives and sculpt a palace in our memory to which, sooner or later-no matter how many books we read, how many worlds we discover, or how much we learn or forget-we will return."

This quote from Zafon's The Shadow of the Wind perfectly describes this book for me. I have read many books over the years, but this is among the few that stays with me.
