Selections from our November Book Banter at the Bangor Public Library - If you have read any of these books, let us know what you thought!

book jacketDream Man by Linda Howard
Linda Howard is one of my favorite authors, and this book, in my opinion, is her best.  Beware... it's spicy!  This book has graphic elements in all areas.  Perhaps that's why I couldn't put it down! * Dream Man has made many online romance lists as one of the top ten romances of all times - mine included!

book jacket
The Dead Zone by Stephen King
This is one of King's great novels. The characters are realistic (no monsters) and the story is compelling. The beginning is awesome and the end is crazy good!
book jacket
Bitten by Kelly Armstrong
Page turner.

book jacket
Ape House by Sara Gruen
I enjoyed the concept of this book and the interaction with apes using sign language.

book jacket
The Late, Lamented Molly Marx by Sally Koslow
Not one of my usual fun light chick lit/romance choices. But a great read none the less. I like the fact that we know right off the bat Molly has just died and that we will be able to follow her on her journey into finding out how she died. Through Molly we are able to live out that fantasy where we wish we knew how people would react to our deaths.

book jacket
The Surgeon by Tess Gerritsen
I love Gerritsen's writing style.  Her characters are compelling, her mysteries well executed, and her medical scenes tightly written.  This is the first novel in her Rizzoli and Isles series, also a series on TNT.
