Let’s play a game! I’m going to talk about a few random books that I’ve enjoyed and what I liked about them. Then, I want you (yes, YOU) to recommend a book to me based on the books I’ve already mentioned.
Ready? Good. Let’s do this.
Book 1: The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
What I liked about this book: It was hilarious and smart. It talked about real personality/social issues and the challenges they present. The main characters and the love story were non-traditional.
Book 2: The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
What I liked about this book: There was mystery and intrigue, but it wasn’t a crime novel. Family secrets and dysfunction. Lessons in what happens when you let the ghosts of your past haunt you for too long.
Book 3:Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
What I liked about this book: The story blurred the line between fantasy and reality. Characters were bizarre, but easy to understand. Plot was not overly complex or long.
I know my selections are quite random and different from each other, but I figured it would be more interesting that way. I can’t wait to see what kinds of recommendations I get.
Feel free to do this on your own blogs as well and join in on the fun. Thanks for playing!
