Ham on Rye: A Novel

Ham on Rye - Charles Bukowski You might think it plain enough but it's really wonderful. Just don't expect it to be action packed... it's Bukowski. Give it a chance. You'll be glad you did.

Lullaby

Lullaby - Chuck Palahniuk I think this might have been my favorite of his.

If Nobody Speaks of Remarkable Things

If Nobody Speaks of Remarkable Things - Jon McGregor When I first picked it up, I had no idea what to expect. The first few lines were surprising, jarring, and I put the book down for a few days. The prose style threw me off, and I wasn't sure I would like it. I must say, however, that I am really glad I decided to return to it and to keep reading. Different, but something I definitely liked. I would suggest this book to a friend.

The Closers (Harry Bosch)

The Closers - Michael Connelly I never read any detective novels, but I liked this one, I'd consider reading more from the author.
