Jamie Recommends

Jamie West

As you can probably tell from my list, I like moody, atmospheric books along with some fun sci-fi and fantasy adventures.  One of the most enjoyable things to do when reading (to me at least) is escape.  That's what all the books on my list have in common: they will all take you to a different place or time. Enjoy!
