Instead of signing off for two weeks, I want to try something different. For the next two weeks I’ll post my book recommendations. Books from this past year that I really enjoyed, okay, loved!
Because the frantic Christmas countdown is on! And I still have Christmas cards to mail. Presents to wrap. Cookies to burn. Self imposed deadlines to meet. Squirrels to torment and scare off, I mean feed with little special nut cakes. And of course sit on my duff and indulge in some eggnog by the fire.
So here are my first two picks.
IMAGINARY GIRLS by Nova Ren Suma
I absolutely loved the beautiful writing, the mysterious story, and the relationship between the sisters.
And the new paperback cover:
BECOME by Ali Cross
When I saw the cover I knew I wanted to read it. I never know when I read a self published book what it’s going to be like. But this one was terrific. The writing. The story. The characters. Worth reading.
Know that I’ll be reading your blogs this next week but most likely won’t be commenting! Feel free to leave your book recs in the comments all week!
Hope you are all farther ahead in your Christmas prep than I am! Yikes!
