For the list of recommendations in January 2013, look here:

http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,137863.0.html

If you are an author or publisher, please do not 'recommend' your own books. Instead you may start a discussion/promotion thread in the Book Bazaar.

Generally, this thread is for quick recommendations. You know, you're sitting with a friend at dinner and you say, "Hey, I just finished this book and I think you would love it!" That kind of thing.

If you've got a book review or other site and would like to regularly share reviews with us, we invite you to start a thread in the Book Bazaar for your site and periodically post links to reviews, subject to our posting rules for authors and bloggers.

Also, please use generic links, or, even better, the Link-Maker to make KindleBoards affiliate links. But please do not link through another site.

Please see Forum Decorum for guidelines.

1Q84 by Haruki Murakami. If you haven't tried Murakami before, this 1000 page tome is probably not the place to start; the stories The Elephant Vanishes or the novel Norwegian Wood would be more obvious beginnings. Wonderfully surreal, as all of Murakami's great works are, lyrical, beautiful. Highly recommended.

I would have to recommend The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. His use of language is just amazing. There is so much feeling in this book. I love the way he has used Death to narrate the book. It is a fantastic read.

Here is the book I recommend:

"Bridge Across the Land"



It is a historical story set in 1200s when Mongols invaded Europe...but not quite a typical historical fiction as there are a lot of romance, martial arts and mind-blowing. Best plot ever! I was reading it in the restroom and couldn't get out of it!

I recently discovered a great paranormal romance series called the Immortal Rapture series. I highly recommend that fans of the genre check out the first book Arielle: Immortal Awakening (Immortal Rapture Series) and see if they like the series. A mortal woman with the gifts of telepathy and empathy meets an immortal man, but evil fights to keep them apart.
