The Language of God by Francis S Collins – 4
A very good book about the mix of God and science.
The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen by Syrie James – 3
I’m rating it a three just because I have a lot of respect for people who have the guts and the patience to take someone historical and write a fiction about them. It was good, but not on of my favorites.
The Six Wives of Henry the VIII by Alison Weir – 5
Yes, it was a five. An amazing history book that kept me enthralled through its entire bulk.
This Is Not Chick Lit Short Stories edited by Elizabeth Merrick – 2
They just weren’t up my alley. But you might like them.
Who Switched Off My Brain by Dr. Caroline Leaf – 3
A how to on controlling anxiety and stress.
Truancy by Isamu Fukui – 4
Another prodigy writer, but he is very good. His world in this sci-fi was well thought out.
Here On Earth by Alice Hoffman – 3
I don’t think there is a bad Alice Hoffman book out there.
Tristan and Iseult by Joseph Bedier – 4
You can never go wrong with classics. This one was beautiful. Basically another rendition of Romeo and Juliet, but better.
Business for Beginners byFrances McGuckin – ?
Another that I can’t rate. Read it if you need to start a business.
Craft Inc. by Meg Mateo Ilasco – 3
I have to rate this one just because it was so wonderfully done. The design of the book alone is stunning. She hit a niche that is very big right now, and she did it well.
The Loon Feather by Iola Fuller – 3
Really great historical story about the Indian tribes in Michigan.
Hard Laughter by Anne Lamott – 4
This is one of my favorites by her. It’s a fictional autobiography about a family and their lives when their father gets brain cancer. Her first novel.
A little disclaimer: these are all my opinion. I don’t think I have the right to say whether these books should be best sellers or not. But if they are above a 3 I would highly recommend them to you. And even if they are a 2 or a 1, you should read them anyways just to broaden your horizons. Books open your mind.
