Need a Read for Spring Break?

Updated on: Feb 18, 2009 @ 11:17:00 am

Spring break is almost here, and it's time to trade in your textbooks for a fast-paced novel, a collection of tales, or perhaps a chronicle of one of your favorite foods. Here's a list of possible ideas:

  • Associate By John Grisham
    Rosen Browsing Collection
    “A PAGE-TURNER…Kyle McAvoy recalls Mitch McDeere from Grisham's breakout novel The Firm. He's young, idealistic, handsome, a little too cocky for his own good, but a brilliant lawyer who gets pulled in over his head and given an education in how the world really works.” —The Los Angeles Times

  • Bones of the Dragon By Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman
    Rosen Browsing Collection
    "Filled with heroes and heroines young and old and exotic adventure in a magic-forged world, this is a series that fully illustrates the mastery of world-building and storytelling that has made Weis and Hickman into the bestselling fantasy co-authors of all time." —

  • Lima Nights: A Novel By Marie Arana
    Rosen Browsing Collection
    "An erotic, catastrophic love story that grows more mysterious by the page, Arana's novel of taboo passion, tragic misperception, and life's hidden dimensions is as shattering as it is seductive." —Booklist

  • Nuclear Jellyfish: A Novel By Tim Dorsey
    Rosen Browsing Collection
    "Fasten your seatbelts: Serge A. Storms, Florida's manic tour and history guide as well as its most inventive and prolific serial killer, cruises at warp(ed) speed through bestseller Dorsey's 11th thriller." —

  • Tales of Beedle the Bard By J.K. Rowling
    Rosen Browsing Collection
    "Both a wise and delightful addition to the Harry Potter canon, ...The Tales of Beedle the Bard is all that fans could hope for and more--and an essential volume for the libraries of Muggles, wizards, and witches, both young and old." —

  • What Was I Thinking? 58 Bad Boyfriend Stories By Barbara Davilman (ed.) & Liz Dubelman (ed.)
    Rosen Browsing Collection
    "What Was I Thinking? is a collection of first-person essays describing the moment in a relationship when, no matter how much you think it should work, or want it to work, or need it to work, you get that it’s not going to work." —
