World without end... thumbs up. You never read 1984? I had to read that in school... I still remember it. Good book. Thanks for the tag.

I would say definitely start with Cuba Wars as the Cuba Revolution just had it's fiftieth anniversary and it's gotten good reviews.

My spouse just Beautiful Boy and really liked it.

Time Travelers Wife and Water for Elephants were both amazing. Seriously.

If you want to read Richard Russo I highly suggest starting with Empire Falls. That is one of my all time favorite books. I've read pretty much all of his stuff and I think he's a great author, but that is my favorite.

I reveiwed The Descendants for Elle, and it was fabulous. Also, I did not like the Almost Moon, I hope you enjoy it more that I did.
Enjoy your reading....
Hugs,

I'm reading Time Travellers Wife right now (let me know if you need to borrow)... I think I may steal ideas from your list for my next book!
