People often ask me for book recommendations. I thought I’d do a quick post about the treasures I discovered this summer with a word about why I loved them. Not all are YA; each has its own magic. For a synopsis check them out on your favorite book buying site.
The Snow Child–mythic, magical , beautiful writing, great atmosphere
The Fault in Our Stars–for voice and character no one does it better than John Green.
Alif the Unseen–great premise, setting in Arabia (Abu Dahbi?), myth, magic and a computer hacker!
Age of Miracles–The earth slows on its axis and…life is never the same.
Beautiful Ruins–Jess Walters is fast becoming one of my favorite contemporary writers and he’s almost local Spokane, WA.
