apparently i was so swept up in wednesday’s state of bliss that i neglected to give you september's booklist. my apologies.
THE LOVELY BONES alice sebold
ELDEST christopher paolini
THIRTEEN REASONS WHY jay asher
ARTEMIS FOWL: THE ARCTIC INCIDENT eoin colfer
ARTEMIS FOWL: THE ETERNITY CODE colfer
ARTEMIS FOWL: THE OPAL DECEPTION colfer
ARTEMIS FOWL: THE LOST COLONY guess who
THE HOUSE ON MANGO STREET sandra cisneros
THE HOST stephenie meyer
HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF BLOOD PRINCE jk rowling
my favorites from the above list:
MANGO STREET is an assemblage of vignettes that speak of home in writing that one critic aptly described as "spare yet luminous." read this.
as evidenced by the surfeit of colfer, i love me some ARTEMIS FOWL. short, snappy books written with humor that mirrors mine so flawlessly, colfer and i could be identical twins parted at birth. except that he’s irish. and male. oh, and brilliant and talented. so yeah, maybe we could just be people with really similar tastes in humor.
also, i should mention that HALF BLOOD PRINCE is a mighty good read...rowling is so far-famed that it seems redundant to recommend harry potter (i’m assuming that if you have interest in this series, you’ve already read it). but still, my official stance: mighty good read.
so now, your turn: anything delightful you've read lately? contrary to what i used to believe, i'm not particular about genre or theme...my single criterion is that the book enchants. what do you recommend?
