The Devil in the White City
The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson (Mystery/Suspense)
The book is well written and a great insight into the worlds fair as well as renowned serial Killer, H.H. Holmes however there is a def. slowness to the book. the first 50 pages are a bit of a struggle -- Added by danadowning on 06/17/2014

This was a very good book. I agree it was a bot slow in the beginning. -- Judy on 06/29/2014  
I read this book several years ago and it still gives me the creeps. Knowing that it is a true story makes it no less suspenseful. -- Marcialou on 06/30/2014  
I read this book when it first was published. Very well-written as it moves between the building of the Columbian Exposition and a mass murderer. I found the history of Chicago compelling. Since reading the book, I've made it a point to visit a number of the sights in Chicago. -- cathibe on 07/23/2014

Hollow City
Hollow City by Ransom Riggs (Science Fiction/Fantasy)
This is the sequel to Miss Peregrine's School for Peculiar Children. It was a fast paced, fun read. I did like the first book better, but this one was pretty good too. -- Added by tjkickie on 06/10/2014

I read the first book and loved it. I can't wait until I get the time to read this one as well! -- AmberT on 06/14/2014  
I absolutely LOVE this series. However, I think the second book is even better than the first :) -- SeverusSnape on 06/17/2014  
Into Thin Air: A Personal Account of the Mt. Everest Disaster

I read this when it was first published and enjoyed it. I am not a mountain climber, nor plan to be, but the book gave me a feel for the dangers involved. -- cathibe on 07/23/2014  
I also read this years ago and found it fascinating. Why do mountain climbers subject themselves to such physical danger? Perhaps my nursing background made the physical symptoms of climbing so interesting in addition to the details of completing such a feat. -- donnam on 08/06/2014  
The English Girl
The English Girl by Daniel Silva (Mystery/Suspense)
This is the first Daniel Silva book I have read and his most recent. I don't know if it matters not to start with the first one. Very enjoyable thriller/espionage book where the main character,Gabriel Allon, is an Israeli art restorer, spy and assassin. He is called in when the married Prime Minister of Englands is being blackmailed because of his affair with "the English Girl" who is kidnapped and being held for ransom. It is not as easy as just retrieving her as Allon gets further into the plot and realizes more is going on than meets the eye. -- Added by Duckyb on 06/10/2014

Definitely read his other books. They are all so good. It helps somewhat to read them in order, but not necessary. -- davers02 on 06/10/2014  
I love all of Daniel Silva's books. This one is a definite hit, but I think Moscow Rules is my favorite. -- cathibe on 07/23/2014

I loved this one, too! -- CindyW on 06/02/2014  
This has been one of my favorite books recently. Charming and heartwarming book set in a bookstore. A cranky bookstore owner who has recently lost his wife changes after discovering a baby that was left at his store. -- Duckyb on 06/21/2014

A Constellation of Vital Phenomena
A Constellation of Vital Phenomena by Anthony Marra (Other Fiction)
A wonderful book, well written about a village trying to navigate two wars, the dissolution of Russia, and survive while maintaining some semblance of what makes them human. A debut for this author. Was very well researched and for me, timely, considering what is happening with Putin and Chechnya. History repeating itself. -- Added by Coco on 06/26/2014

I also enjoyed it. The narrative reminded me of a Chechneyan One Hundred Years of Solitude by Marquez in that every story line tied in with every thing else in some way, though it wasn't always obviously stated. -- arose on 06/26/2014  
Accused: A Rosato & Associates Novel
Accused: A Rosato & Associates Novel by Lisa Scottoline (Other Fiction)
Thirteen year old Allegra hires an all female law firm to try and prove that a young man who was convicted of killing her older sister is in fact innocent. Did not want to put this book down. Very enjoyable. -- Added by booklover14 on 07/12/2014
