Welcome everyone! Today I want to share with you some great reads.
Fall is a wonderful time to curl up with a good book and your favorite beverage. Here are some of the books that I have enjoyed this Fall so far.
If you haven’t read Diana Kosmoski’s first book Lucy and the Dark Woods then you are missing out. Lucy is truly a character that I identified with. It was a great read and Diana really is so very talented. She writes a fun blog called Nana Diana Takes a Break, if you haven’t been there here is her link you can also buy her book at this site or go to Amazon.com.
Another author that I really enjoy Is Bernard Cornwell. His books are historical and the research that he has done is amazing. This group of books that I have been reading is called the Saxon Tales. It talks about King Alfred in the 871-899-A.D. . If it hadn’t been for King Alfred, England would have been called Dane-land and we would be speaking Danish instead of English. England was that close to be taken over by the Dane’s who were out doing their Viking thing (to be a Viking means to rob and plunder, it didn’t matter what nationality you were). This is an exciting read.
Kate Mosse is another author that I enjoy. I have read every book that she has written. They are mystical and historic, she keeps you griped to the very end.
I love to read books for youth, they are fast reads and always fun. Song of the Lioness is a great story about hero’s and a young women working hard to reach her goals. It taught me a few new things about life.
I have a Christmas tradition it starts as soon as I finish my first book in November. For the next few months I read nothing but books that are about Christmas. Any of you who enjoy the old black and white movies or even Mike Hammer or Dick Tracy, you will enjoy this book. This book is about a 1300 year old elf named Gumdrop Coal who works at the North Pole. You will have to read it to find out more about it, I don’t want to give it away. It’s a hoot! lol I purchased this from Amazon.com.
Another one of my favorite holiday reads is The Gift by William Craig. William Craig is a grandfather that wrote this book for his family. He has ask them to write a sequel, I hope they do because it was a really fun book to read. It is about how Santa became who he is and about the land where he is from. It’s only 730 pages! But so worth the read. It’s magical. You can purchase this on Amazon.com as well.
I have several other good reads that I will share with you later.
Have a great day! Jo
