The Road to Grace by Richard Paul Evans, 271 pages

These have been a great read. The only drawback was finding out there is still 2 more books and someone else has them checked out. I don't want to wait to find out what happens with Alan.

Miles To Go by Richard Paul Evans, 335 pages

Book 2 in The Walk series. I devoured this book pretty quickly. I can't wait to see what happens to Alan next. This character has really grabbed me.

The Walk by Richard Paul Evans, 289 pages

This is my book club book for this month. I had put off reading it until just 2 days before book club because I didn't want to read it, and then I thought it might take me a little bit longer to get through this short book because I wouldn't like it. I was completely wrong. I finished it during just 2 15-minute breaks and an hour lunch that day. It grabbed me from almost the first page, and when I finished it, I immediately went and got the next two books. This was not sappy and sickeningly sweet like I thought it would be, it was very well done. Definitely one I would not have picked up unless for book club.

A Burnable Book by Bruce Holsinger, 444 pages

Set in 1385 London, featuring a book prophesying the death of King Richard II, this was a must read for me. This is definitely not for the light of heart, it's a heavy read, but was really good. I think I most enjoyed learning about the maudlyns (hookers) working in London and the history involved.

Dead End in Norvelt by Jack Gantos, 341 pages

I'd had this on my list forever and finally got around to reading it. It was fun and quirky, and just a treat to pick up.

My Life as a White Trash Zombie by Diana Rowland, 310 pages

I picked this book up from the new fiction shelf, and from the description and picture I didn't expect much of it, but thought I'd give it a go. I'm delighted to say I was mistaken, it was a great and fresh take on the zombie genre. Angel is a believable character and I loved seeing her try to grow (but not too much to keep it true to her) and it was great seeing her try to come to terms with what she had become. I've already requested the second book in this series, and I'm hopefully that they're all as funny and great to read as this one.

Hell on Wheels by Sue Ann Jaffarian, 288 pages

I really enjoy this series, and not just because I'm a plus-size gal myself. Odelia Grey is a fun and enjoyable character, always stumbling across dead bodies. I feel like the interesting and varied characters in these books really lend to the series. I can't wait to see what happens to Steele in the next book (no spoilers, lol.)
