...and anyone else looking for a good, imaginative read.
Becca and I were having a conversation last week about books. I started reeling off the names of books she might like, and the list had gotten so long she told me to e-mail them to her. This got me to thinking that there might be others of you out there looking for a good read and had never heard of these books. So, I present to you my list of books I strongly recommend.
Oh, and one thing to note about these books. Many of them are considered "Young Adult" or "Juvenile" Literature, but I greatly enjoy them because they are much smarter, sophisticated books than we had in high school and junior high. As Becca pointed out, "Yeah, just about all we had was Sweet Valley High". LOL!
Some of these are older books that, if you read them again as an adult, you get sooo much more out of them.
Enjoy! And please let me know what you think if you read any of the books I'm about to present.
New Moon (sequel to Twilight)...Stephenie Meyer
Inkheart ...Cornelia Funke
Inkspell (sequel to Inkheart)...Cornelia Funke
The Thief Lord ...Cornelia Funke
Otherland: City of Golden Shadow...Tad Williams
The Time Quartet: A Wrinkle in Time, A Wind in the Door, A Swiftly Tilting Planet, and Many Waters...Madeline L'Engle
Eragon (Inheritance, Book 1)...Christopher Paolini
Eldest (Inheritance, Book 2)...Christopher Paolini
Okay, this list ought to give you all some books to get started on, anyway. Once you finish these, let me know, and I'll be sure to make another list. Enjoy!
P.S. I didn't include the HP novels on here because it's pretty much a "given" that Harry Potter is on my list of must-reads!
