50 in 2014

Die For You - How well do you think you know the person you married? This book will truly make you think about it. I wish I could keep it together half as well as Isabel when faced with so much turmoil. This is my second book by Lisa Unger and I am really warming up to her writing style. She pulls you through the story with vivid descriptions and emotion.
Isabel Raine thought she had everything–a successful career, a supportive family, and a happy marriage to the man she loved. Then one ordinary morning, her husband, Marcus, picks up his briefcase, kisses her good-bye, and simply vanishes. (excerpt from goodreads)
Fangirl - I was so nervous to read Fangirl. I feared it wouldn't live up to Eleanor and Park, but IT DID! The relationships you make when you first start college are those unknowing moments where you learn a lot about who you are, and Rainbow Rowell writes them so perfectly. Plus, I am sucker for any story that includes a first love.
Now that they’re going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn’t want to be roommates. Cath is on her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. She’s got a surly roommate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words . . . And she can’t stop worrying about her dad, who’s loving and fragile and has never really been alone. (excerpt from goodreads)
The Story Sisters - I love Alice Hoffman books. She does erie and enchanting so well! She wastes no time sucking you in... instantly you are one of the sisters, speaking a made-up language and living in imaginary world, all the while trying to escape the pained realities of what has happened. The ending to this book is so realistically beautiful that it makes all the pain in the book worth it.
The Story Sisters, charts the lives of three sisters–Elv, Claire, and Meg. Each has a fate she must meet alone: one on a country road, one in the streets of Paris, and one in the corridors of her own imagination. Inhabiting their world are a charismatic man who cannot tell the truth, a neighbor who is not who he appears to be, a clumsy boy in Paris who falls in love and stays there, a detective who finds his heart’s desire, and a demon who will not let go.
