  1. ROGUE ORACLE by Alayna Williams

    Tara Sheridan is the best criminal profiler around—and the most unconventional. Trained as a forensic psychologist, Tara also specializes in Tarot card reading.

    “This was an excellent book and I highly recommend it for anyone who enjoys fantasy literature, mysteries, fortune telling, or crime novels. I give this story 4 out of 5 clouds. It was kind of like Profiler or Criminal Minds meets Supernatural. – dreamer2229”

  2. Just finished “The Spark” by Kathleen Barnett which was a mind blowing book about her experience with her son’s autism. After educators and counselors all warned her to not expect too much from her nonverbal child, he blossomed into a child prodigy with an IQ far surpassing that of Einstein. By the age of 16, he was helping university students in quantum physics classes and he became a candidate for a Nobel prize in physics before reaching the age of 20. Highly recommend, particularly to parents and educators.

They’re used in massage, in aromatherapy, and to create a positive ambience at home and at work. This attractive new addition to the Essential Handbook series is both a reference and a guide to these oils and their life-enhancing properties.

  5. Replay by Ken Grimwood
    It’s not a new book but it’s my all time favorite.

    “Jeff Winston, forty-three, didn’t know he was a replayer until he died and woke up twenty-five years younger in his college dorm room; he lived another life. And died again. And lived again and died again — in a continuous twenty-five-year cycle –each time starting from scratch at the age of eighteen to reclaim lost loves..Read More

  6. I am currently reading Venus in Furs. It’s a classic and is certainly better written than Fifty Shades of Grey.

    “Venus in Furs is a novella by the Austrian author Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, and the best known of his works. The novel was to be part of an epic series that Sacher-Masoch envisioned called Legacy of Cain. Venus in Furs was part of Love, the first volume of the series. It was published in 1870. The novel draws themes, like female dominance…Read More

  7. The Girl, the Gold Watch and Everything
    by John D. MacDonald

    From John D. MacDonald, one of the enduring American novelists of the twentieth century, comes a science fiction classic with a timeless premise. An aimless young man discovers a way to stop the world in its tracks—and that’s when his life truly begins.

  8. i have been reading the series by dave pelzer, beginning with ‘a child called it’ and ending with ‘a man named dave.’ the series is about his horrific experience with child abuse, and how he overcame it.

  9. The Gilded Leaf by Tom Shachtman and Christina Bledsoe is a very interesting and intriguing account of the R.J. Reynolds family of tobacco fame, although their irons were in many fires.

  10. I’d recommend anything by Philip K. Dick, especially The Man in the High Castle or Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep. That last one was the basis for Blade Runner.

  11. The Three Body Problem by Cixin Liu. It details the story of Chinese scientist making contact with aliens during the Cultural Revolution, only to discover aliens are coming to earth during the present. Also, it was the first translated novel to win a Hugo award.
