10 thoughts on “Books I Recommend”
Marley and Me by John Grogan
Sloppy Firsts- Megan McCafferty
“The Hobbit” by Tolkien. This is a really cute stand-alone that fits into the bigger picture of Lord of The Rings.
The Earthsea Cycle by Ursula K. Le Guin! Life alteringly good and deliciously well written.
I love lists like this!
Looks like we have a lot of overlap in the books we’ve enjoyed — Orson Scott Card, Ray Bradbury, Stephenie Meyers, J.R.R. Tolkien, Isaac Asimov, Frank Herbert. I agree with Casey that Ursula Le Guin is also a must-read author, particularly if you enjoy fantasy and science fiction. I’d recommend Gregory Maguire, Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, and Kim Harrison too.
I was recently sent a copy of “Paul of Dune” by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson for review. I’ll post a review of it soon on my own blog, the Damian Daily (at http://damiandaily.wordpress.com) to let you know how it turns out. It’ll be interesting to see how the son follows in his father’s footsteps as an author in this prolific series.
I enjoyed reading your book reviews too.
Exposed by Susan Vaught; Uglies Series by Scott Westerfeld; Crank Series by Ellen Hopkins (not really a series because its only two books) [the other book is called Glass by the same author]; Impulse by Ellen Hopkins; Identical by Ellen Hopkins; Burned by Ellen Hopkins
