Looking for something to read for fun or for class? Stop by the Rosen Library for one of these top reads!


  • Dracula The Un-Dead by Dacre Stoker and Ian Holt
    “The authors (Stoker is a descendant of Bram, and Holt is a noted Dracula historian) skillfully explore the nature of evil while weaving together several complex plotlines throughout this mesmerizing story. Readers who enjoy dark fantasy with fast-paced action will plow through this book, not wanting to stop.“ —Library Journal
  • Ford County: Stories by John Grisham
    "Ford County is the best writing that John Grisham has ever done... Some of the stories are hilarious, and Grisham’s gift of humor has never found a showcase like this. One of these stories should find its way into the anthologies of the best short stories of 2009. It might not happen, but I for one think the stories in Ford County are that damned good." —Pat Conroy
  • New York: The Novel by Edward Rutherfurd
    “Like James Michener and Leon Uris, Rutherfurd does a magnificent job of packaging a crackling good yarn within a digestible overview of complex historical circumstances and events.”
  • The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
    “Compelling...Skillfully written with a blend of distinct characters and heartfelt emotions that hopscotch through time, begging interpretation on many levels.” —Library Journal (starred review)
  • What Remains of Heaven: A Sebastian St. Cyr Mystery by C.S. Harris
    Fifth in the "fast-moving" British-set historical mystery series starring a charismatic hero. Sebastian St. Cyr, Viscount Devlin, is asked by the Archbishop of Canterbury to help in the investigation of two corpses found in an ancient crypt, their violent deaths separated by decades. One is the Bishop of London, the elderly Archbishop's favored but controversial successor. The identity of the other seems lost in time.”
    —Publisher’s Description


  • Business Communication by Marty Brounstein et. al.
    "Easy-to-read, practical, and up-to-date, this text not only helps you learn fundamental business communication concepts; it also helps you master the core competencies and skills you need to succeed in the classroom and beyond." —Publisher's description
  • Hotel Design, Planning and Development by Walter A. Rutes et. al.
    “It offers an overview of the industry; in-depth analysis of emerging trends; the latest how-to; and essential design, planning, and development criteria." —Publisher's description
  • Human Resource Management: Linking Strategy to Practice by Greg L. Stewart and Kenneth G. Brown
    "Provides students with both an understanding of traditional human resource concepts and a framework for making decisions about when specific practices can be most beneficial to an organization." —Publisher's description
