I just finished "This Much I Know Is True" by Wally Lamb. I rate it a 5 all the way! It's a story about twin brothers--one dealing with schizophrenia and the other dealing with his brother and his past and how he is able to find himself and make peace with his history.

Lamb is another incredible story teller who creates rich, deep, complex characters and story lines. There are so many lessons one can apply to their own life through his stories.

I would highly recommend this book!

Only 254 pages, mystery thriller that you can read in one day. I give it a 4. Very very good.

It's about a young woman who witnesses a kidnapping but is paralyzed to do anything. Her guilt at not having done anything leads her to help in the investigation. .As she learns who the abductor is, she learns the truth of a childhood friend who went missing years before. I Highly recommend it!

Her books have great stories, are easy to read and great to pass the time when on a treadmill. Again, another murder mystery with flashbacks. I like how she ackstory. Scary, freaky book and I loved it!!! Would give this one a 5!

Summary hereThe Night Circus.I am halfway through the book and absolutely in love with the story and the writing.  I have no idea where the story is going and each chapter continues to propel me to the next one.  I will have read this in one day...and I did.  I finished it a little after midnight.  There are some things that I question and wonder about: time frame being one of them.  I know it is "in development" for film.  I think it will make a beautiful movie with the fantasy/magical element.  It is detailed and yet somethings are so open to interpretation.  I give this a solid 4.
