A refreshing epic romance/adventure to cleanse your palette: The Winter King by C.L. Wilson

A dark, thought-provoking mystery to keep you engaged: Before The Fall by Noah Hawley

A sensual sci-fi thriller with powerful female characters: Waking The Moon by Elizabeth Hand

Nay1976 :  YES! Before The Fall is fantastic and I reallyreallyreally want a prequel that centers around Gil. 

DanaWeddingGuest :  Steven King’s 11/22/63 was amazing. My spouse and I loved it!

You have a great booklist going on this thread! I’m definitely going to read some of these books you all have recommended 😀

My favorite is The Help by Kathryn Stockett. I have read it over and over! Me Before You by Jojo Moyes  and it’s sequel After You are both amazing, I couldn’t put it down! 🙂

Goodreads has been great to keep track of books read, books to read, setting reading goals, etc.  You can connect with friends and see what they are reading too.  Super convenient as I can bring my phone to the library and look up books on my “to read” list.
