I have a small stack of books I need to read, and books that are overdue to the library; again! This is why I hate getting books from the library. Honestly, I have already bought a wing in that library with my late fees and damaged books thanks to my girls.
But is there one book you want to read, but keep setting aside?
I am asking because I am making sure I have a whole big wide window opened this summer for reading, and I want to read what you recommend.
So if you tell me you have a book I absolutely have to read, I will find it and read it. I will check it out from the library, I will buy it, but you have to promise me it is worth it!
So let me know, and I will get to shopping!
I have too many!!!
“The Blue Castle” by L.M. Montgomery (of “Anne of Green Gables” fame) is fantastic, and not very long.
I’ve always regretted not reading the entire Narnia series. I haphazardly sampled the series in my early teen years, so I didn’t get the story line from start to finish.
I highly recommend C.S. Friedmans’s “The Madness Season”. Published in 1990, it’s an interesting take on the whole vampire thing that was so popular a few years back, before the zombies took over.
I also recommend the “Coldfire Trilogy, from the same author. I enjoyed it very much twenty some-odd years ago, though I found it a bit dark for my tastes when I picked it up more recently. In my opinion, she does a fine job of melding Sci-Fi and Fantasy.
Thanks Julian! I will certainly look for it when I make my way to the library this weekend!
Not knowing your preference I’ll share the two that come to mind. • Fin and Lady by Cathleen Schine, a story of a young boy who’s parents pass away and must move away from all he knows to live with his older sister he hardly knows. This story is told so well that I wonder how much truth is in this fiction.
• Freud’s Mistress by Karen Mack and Jennifer Kaufman This is also a work of fiction that tells from the view point of Freud’s sister in law. From the title you may think it’s all sex and “50 Shades” like. It is far from that.
I read both of these books a couple of years ago and they are still very fresh in my mind. Now that’s good writing.
Thanks for the suggestions Laura, I will definitely look for these!
