"Alice Walker is a master of bringing her readers into her work! This story defines what black women of the 1930's had to endure. Walker's character detail and vivid cultural settings come across extremely real. I found myself cheering Celie on, and traveling with her through her journey to escape the man who ends up being her hero in disguise. A must read, for sure!" -- Amber Selden

Yesterday's News, by Kajsa Ingemarsson.
This is the promised bestseller from Sweden. Something a bit different from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo...
"I've had this book on my to read list for a while. I stumbled upon it again with the new cover, which caught my attention. I finished it in two evenings. Simply couldn't stop reading it. I wholeheartedly recommend this book. It is an engaging and worthwhile read." -- Ravenous Random Reader

Hawk of May (Down the Long Way 1), by Gillian Bradshaw.
"I enjoyed this book. I loved being immersed in post-Roman Britain once more and seeing the battle between the old ways and the new, fought so clearly in massive battles. I also really enjoyed Gwlachmai as a narrator. He's just a really good person. It was wonderful to get to know him better, particularly as he is one of the most famous knights of the Round Table and has a significant amount of mythology relating to him. He is a very engaging narrator, and seeing him through his personal struggles is a very absorbing way to spend an evening. I am very glad I finally picked this book up off my shelf, and I look forward to reading the next two in the series, too. Highly recommended for fans of Arthurian fiction!" -- Chapati

Obsidian (A Lux Novel), by Jennifer L. Armentrout.
"Take some really hot, sizzling character cheistry, two stubborn love interests who know how to push each other's buttons, and add in some awesome out of this world characters and you've got the makings for one fabulously written story." -- Katieb
