message 12: by Hayes (last edited Jan 15, 2009 09:47PM) (new)

For those who want to cry buckets of tears..
For One More Day by Mitch Albom

message 20: by Nancy (new)

Nancy Not my cup of tea.

All Quiet on the Western Front

Recomending....Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr.

message 22: by Beth Ann (new)

The Hiding Place

message 37: by Debby (new)

Debby | 3804 comments I've never read anything by Le Carre and this sounds very good. I've added it to my TBR and reserves from the library.

I recommend Red River by Lalita Tademy. It's a great blend of an historical event mixed with her family history and historical fiction. A very profoundly moving book and perfectly times to read with the upcoming inauguration.

message 38: by Nancy (new)

Nancy A friend of mine recommended Cane River. I should add her books to my shelf.

A Great Deliverance

message 39: by Andrew (new)

Andrew (sir_reads_a_lot) | 509 comments I wouldn't Read it

The Mysterious Island by Jules Verne

message 43: by Lori, Super Mod (new)

Lori (tnbbc) | 9965 comments Mod
Wahhhhh Fiona skipped me!!!

message 44: by Debby (new)

Debby | 3804 comments I'd say North and South and Still are books I'd read. The Mysterious Island by Jules Verne is a maybe. Like Fiona, I'm just not a big fan of Verne.

I'd recommend The Hour I First Believed by Wally Lamb

message 45: by Angela (new)

Angela | 1934 comments I read it and LOVED IT!!!

Kite Runner

message 46: by Debby (new)

Debby | 3804 comments I'm torn about reading The Four Last Things. I really do like suspense/thriller books, but find myself having more and more difficulty reading then if the description of violence and torture is explicit. So, this one is a maybe.

I'd recommend On Agate Hill by Lee Smith

message 47: by Jean (last edited Jan 19, 2009 07:47AM) (new)

Jean Liota (gardenlady56) | 28 comments I wanted to read Stiff when I heard the author interviewed on NPR a hundred years ago. Then I forgot all about it. Sounds interesting. Important. Thanks for the reminder. Will add to TBR right now.

Fiona wrote: "Ye-es but not a favourite of mine. I guess after so much hype you'd expect more, but still fairly enjoyable and very scary how close he is...

[b:Stiff The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers|940174|S..."

message 48: by Jean (new)
