For now, here is a list of books I’ve read in the past couple of months.
I can’t keep track of dates anymore – are you kidding?
THE TALENTED CLEMENTINE by Sara Pennypacker, illus. by Marla Frazee
RED MOON AT
Great American historical fictionSENSE AND SENSIBILITY by Jane Austen
A classic – what else can I say?
THE WELL OF ASCENSION by Brandon Sanderson
Intriguing new Adult fantasy with a brilliant world, yet the main character is only 18 years old so it reads like sophisticated YA.
RED GLASS by Laura Resau
The imagery and writing is wonderful in a whole new setting in Mexico
THE WHITE DARKNESS by Geraldine McCaughrean
I never knew you could describe the snow and white colors of the Antarctic in so many ways.CONFESSIONS OF A JANE AUSTEN ADDICT by Laurie Viera Rigler.
Very fun read if you love Jane!THE MYSTERIOUS EDGE OF THE HEROIC WORLD by E. L. Konigsburg
Elaine Konigsburg will go down in history as one of the best writers of the last generation
REPOSSESED by A. M. Jenkins
Wicked and delightful! Love her work.OPHELIA: A NOVEL by Lisa M. Klein
Fantastic retelling of Hamlet by Ophelia herself. Love this kind of historical fiction, rich and wonderful.
THE LUXE by Anna Godberson
A fun gossipy read, but doesn’t live up to all the hype. Don’t buy it. Use your library, that’s what I do.
REACHING FOR SUN by Tracie Vaughn Zimmer
A wonderful new poetic writer!
ONE WHOLE AND PERFECT DAY by Judith Clarke
An Australian author who tells a story using about 10 different points of view brilliantly. The first 50 pages is sort of slow, but it doesn’t disappoint as it begins to get more complex and all the pieces fit together at the end.
CATASTROPHE Great Engineering Failure – and Success by Fred Bortz
More great non-fiction with fabulous photosTHE SECRET by Rhonda Byrne
Intriguing way to look at success and happiness and your personal dreams and goals.
Read this for my book club – it’s been decades since I’ve read it, but it’s still timeless and healing.
Really different kind of format with little known medieval facts and information.
