Favorite Recent Novels

I'm not the biggest fan of fiction and always have trouble finding novels that appeal to me enough to finish reading or otherwise leave a lasting impression. Here is a list, in no particular order, of my top favorite novels of the last two years:

The Road by Cormac McCarthy
Five Skies by Ron Carlson
Brief History of the Dead by Kevin Brockmeier
Smonk by Tom Franklin
Coal Black Horse by Robert Olmstead
Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
God of Animals by Aryn Kyle

Gone Too Long

Personal Note: Sorry for the long absence. I departed for the summer and since coming home I have been, simply put, lazing around the house re-adjusting to normal life. As a jump back into posting snippets and reviews and thoughts, a short and sweet post will follow this one. Ta!
