The Sword of Bedwyr (Crimson Shadow Series, Book 1) by R.A. Salvatore 4.5/5.0
One of the best fantasy novels I’ve ever read – turned me on to R.A. Salvatore.
The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud by Ben Sherwood 4.5/5.0
I love this book and I will probably read it again. I’ve recommended it to many friends.
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon 4.5/5.0
Beautiful story about an autistic boy who embarks on a journey of discover, only to learn much more than he could have ever imagined. Very highly recommended.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky 5.0/5.0
Best book ever. No, seriously. I can’t say enough about the realistic beauty of this book – the characterization is masterful, the plot simple yet moving, the language and prose, hauntingly beautiful. I will read this one many, many times – and have passed it on to all the “Wallflowers” and readers that I know.
A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess 4.0/5.0
Awesome book.. incredibly inventive and scary. Brilliant social commentary, though possibly not my favorite of Anthony Burgess’s work.
33 Snowfish by Adam Rapp 4.0/5.0
Interesting. Short book.. worth the read.
Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls 5.0/5.0
Probably my favorite young adult book – after the Harry Potter series. Beautiful and magical story.

You don’t start out writing good stuff. You start out writing crap and thinking it’s good stuff, and then gradually you get better at it. That’s why I say one of the most valuable traits is persistence. Octavia E. Butler
