Top 5 Stand Alone Books
1. The Help by Kathryn Stockett a wonderful book about 1960's Jackson Mississippi. 2 black maids and one white woman who decides to write a book about what it is really like to be a maid in 1960's southern states. I would recommend this to someone who enjoys historical fiction and some strong female characters. It is on a more serious note, but also a very enjoyable read.
2. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak which I read very recently and had to include. I loved this book so much. You fall in love with every single character in this book. It is about a girl named Liesel in Nazi Germany. She is taken to live with her foster parents and on the way there she steals her first book. Also a great historical novel but more YA-ish.
4. The boy In The Suitcase by Lene Kaaberbøl and Agnete Friis. A danish crime novel about a boy in a suitcase. This book had me up all night. The main character is a nurse who get's involved in solving a crime when she by coincidence find a suitcase with a little boy inside of it. This book is very thrilling and intriguing.
I tried to include a variety of different kinds of books to this list.
