Reading Recommendations:

* may be out of print

[Fiction] The Alienist - Caleb Carr - Detectives, including a woman, work to solve grisly murders in the early twentieth century.

[Non-Fiction] Still Alice - Lisa Genova - The story of a successful woman in her 50s and how she is impacted by early-onset Alzheimer’s. It will stick with you.

[Biography] The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe - J. Randy Taraborrelli - Detailed account of the life of the superstar and sex symbol.

[Star Trek] Uhura’s Song - Janet Kagan* - Even if you are not into Star Trek, or even Sci-Fi, this is an incredible story told by a master storyteller.

[Sci-Fi] Mars - Ben Bova - I read an incredible amount of Ben Bova back in the day. This is one of my favorites.

[Romance] The MacGreggors, Alan - Grant - Nora Roberts - While not the first in the story’s timeline, these are the tales that kicked off one of Nora Roberts’s most popular series.

[Fiction] Red Storm Rising - Tom Clancy - One of my favorite Clancy novels and it is NOT a Jack Ryan story.

[Horror] The Stand - Stephen King - King’s masterpiece about a constructed virus gone, well, viral. A long read—but if not now, when?
