Most books like this one are heavily based on and written as history books, giving the background more than the emotion.  I am honored, proud, and grateful to the author for giving the reader, me, so much more than what I could read in textbooks

Author:  Tracy Richardson
ISBN: 978-1-935462-25-5

I loved this book.  The writer really delved into all the areas of teenage angst.  From the gut-wrenching scenes of peer-pressure to the maximum, when poor Marcie has to find a way to fit into a world that she doesn’t understand – and, doesn’t even like – to the effects that big business has on nature conservancy and the preservation of the past – the author has found a way to focus on major issues in an absolutely fun and exciting way.

Author:  Lauren Kate
ISBN: 978-0-385-73893-4

The author does a wonderful job of introducing us to fantastic characters, especially Arriane (my favorite) who is a smart-mouth young woman who seems to know far too much about far too many things

Author:  Molly Roe
ISBN: 978-0-9814619-3-9

The politics of the time, the history of how hard the struggle was for many poor families, is absolutely inspirational.  The writer did a wonderful job bringing us back to the past, and making us understand that bigotry – in any form – can only harm

Author:  Georgette Heyer
ISBN:  978-1-4022-1947-4

This book is like starting a journey of humor, love, and faith with the one woman who knew exactly what she was doing.  Run as fast as you can to your bookstore, every month, and build your very own Heyer collection.  I'm telling you, you won't regret it.  There will never be another Regency writer this perfect

Author:  Suzanne Lieurance
ISBN:  978-0-7660-3311-5

This book is an absolute gem offered by Enslow Publishers, who provide K-12 school libraries with some of the best non-fiction books available

Author:  Willow
ISBN:  978-1-4327-4013-9

I'd like to think, after reading this wonderful story, that I have a pair of my own dragons watching out for me.  This story proves, yet again, that fantasy and fantastical worlds are far easier to swallow than the one we live in right now.  Enjoy!

Author:  Scott W. Dunlap
ISBN:  978-1-4327-4416-8

I guarantee you a great many readers out there will think that Mr. Dunlap knows our workplaces intimately and has been following us around during our daily grind, watching the piles of dung that are left behind by the higher echelon of executives for us middle managers to clean up

Author: David Almond
ISBN:  978-0-385-73806-4

Every once in a while a book comes along that I have so many emotions about that it is almost impossible to know whether or not I actually enjoyed the book.  This is one of those stories

Author:  Melissa de la Cruz
ISBN:  978-142310226-7

Any fan of this series should run out and get this fourth installment to see how their favorites reach their goals, no matter how confusing it was for this reviewer

Author:  Wim Coleman & Pat Perrin
ISBN:  978-1-935178-06-4

The authors of this book have contributed, written, and/or edited more than sixty books for educational publishers and are currently developing a series of videos for classroom use.  As a mom, I must say that I hope many more books from these authors will turn up in school curriculums, simply because many of our children need to learn about people other than themselves.  I think it would be wonderful to raise the next generation to be interested and excited about the numerous factions, races, faiths, and more, that make up our country.

Author:  Wim Coleman & Pat Perrin
ISBN:  978-1-935178-07-1

I’ve been lucky enough to have read three books by this talented writer duo, and it was no surprise that this one was as wonderful as all the rest

Author:  Susan Arnout Smith
ISBN:  978-0-312-36834-0

For all you conspiracy theorists out there...this one's for you

Author:  Wim Coleman & Pat Perrin
ISBN: 978-1-935178-03-3

A new, creative, and compelling tale that takes us back to the time of King Arthur.

Author:  Kathryn Witt
ISBN:  978-160844-132-7

I can't even begin to tell you how excited I was to receive this book in the mail.  It couldn't have gone to a better person.

Author:  Lance Lee Noel
ISBN:  978-0-9800369-0-9

This is yet another YA that is also perfect for adults who want to venture into the past and enjoy a roller-coaster ride of fun

Author:  Tania Maria Rodrigues-Peters
Illustrator:  Pedro Caraca
ISBN:  978-3-9502804-0-1

This children's book is unbelievably beautiful, and the morals it teaches are as beneficial for adults as they are for children.  To me, it's on par with The Polar Express, and the mystery of Santa Claus.  It teaches belief, faith, hope, and magic that should be carried inside our hearts into adulthood

Author:  David Michael Slater
ISBN:  978-1-933-767-00-0

You know how at the dreaded age of thirteen, we all go a little "flooey?"  We go from depressions to anger in a second flat.  Our parents are no longer the people we love, they're the "old codgers" who just don't remember what it was like to be a kid?  Oh know what I mean.  Well...if you think YOU had it tough, you will be amazed at the ancient mystery full of horrifying creatures and strange languages that are thrust upon the main characters of this Young Adult page-turner.

ISBN:  978-1-933767-02-4

"Thinking is suffering."  I love that line because it's absolutely true.  Thinking...gathering knowledge...becomes an obsession rather quickly for the ones like us who not only want to know but, NEED to know why people do the things they do?

Author:  Donna VanLiere
ISBN: 978-0-312-55836-9

This is not a weepy book.  This book is filled with hope, faith, belief, love, magic, mysticism, anger, fear – you know, every facet of life (if you have a good one).  I’ve never read the other books in this series, but I pray that I can hunt them down in my small town.  Don’t be fooled by the title.  This is not a Christmas book only.  This is a book that absolutely everyone in the world should read and understand

Read this.  Love this.  Be thrilled by the adventure and gasp at the pain.  But, more importantly, understand everything the author says. 

Author:  Mary Balogh
ISBN:  978-1-59315-554-4

I want to whisper in your ear, because this story is so well-written, and so funny that you’ll never guess what’s really going on with the characters.  In other words, a curve ball is delivered by, elt us just say, a very smart young woman.

Author: Robert Hilburn
ISBN: 978-1-59486-921-1

Take my advice, guys and gals:  Read this book; listen to the stories; marvel at the real talent that has shaped us as a country.  Turn off American Idol, and meet the real heroes that have made our lives worth living.  I'd love to have corn flakes and cream with Mr. Hilburn.  That's officially a new entry on my wish list

This was Outstanding!

Author:  Amy Ferris
ISBN 13:  978-1-58005-297-9

Ms. Ferris, I'm probably the only one out of the two of us who's extremely happy that you went through Menopause

Author:  Evelyn Tannehill
ISBN: 978-1-58736-693-2

I want to send my special thanks to this author.  You have taught me a great deal and I am truly an admirer – not only of your wonderfully descriptive prose, but also your pride, determination, and strength in a world that’d literally fallen down around your ears.

Author:  Rick Yancey

Publishers: Simon & Schuster

Great job, Mr. Yancey.  I look forward with happiness, excitement, and a very nervous stomach for the second book in this thrilling series

ISBN:  978-0-9766787-8-6

This is an exceptional non-fiction read.  Written as a compilation of interviews with a variety of stars, celebrities, politicians, writers, singers, dancers - you name it - the information given is wonderful and, in some cases, eye-opening.

Author:  Melody Carlson
Publisher:  David C. Cook
ISBN:  978-1-58919-108-2

Everyone - unless you've been living under a box for the last few years - knows who this wonderful author is.  I have been lucky enough to read all the books associated with this series entitled 86 Bloomberg Place.  If you haven't, go buy them immediately and then read this final installment.  You'll be glad you did
