The End of Marking Time by C.J. West

The End of Marking Time by C.J. West is the most memorable book I have reviewed for Luxury Reading. Everything about the story is still with me. The way Michael is speaking directly to you – the reader, the concept of reeducation versus the prison system, the limits he tests throughout, even the shocking way the book ended. I still highly recommend this story to everyone. Not only will you not be able to put it down, but it will stay in your thoughts for a long time to come.

Tout Sweet by Karen Wheeler

My favorite book has been Tout Sweet.

As a recovering corporate executive myself, I really enjoyed Karen’s tale of walking away from a job – and a life – she found unsatisfying in the hope of finding everything she wanted/felt she lacked. There is a leap of faith required in leaving money, security, prestige, comfort, and employment behind; it is not a leap everyone is willing (or able) to take. But when you can and do, it’s thrilling (and terrifying and occasionally disheartening and often unnerving and sometimes lonely and always surprising) – and reading someone else’s tale of surviving it was as well!

Seducing the Spirits by Louise Young | Of Bees and Mist by Erick Setiawan

Seducing the Spirits has been one of my favorite books over the years, as well as Of Bees and Mist. Those two are literally two books that I don’t lend out because I am afraid I won’t get them back. They were life changing and almost as close to perfect as perfect can be, books I’d love to have the chance to write had I had the vision to do so, myself!!

Moonglass by Jessi Kirby

Moonglass has an amazingly beautiful cover, and the words between the cover match it perfectly. I loved the characters, the themes, the romance, and really just everything about this book. I recommend it to anyone looking for a great book to read, regardless of what genres they may actually prefer.
