To get recommendations for Christmas shopping, as well as just because and I love the library, I think its time to get some recommendations from you.
Here are some of the books I've read recently:
Swamplandia! by Karen Russell
Quirky, well-written, disturbing, occasionally frustrating, and definitely sticks with you for a long time.
Where Things Come Back, Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, Bigger than a Breadbox, The One and Only Ivan
Poignant, honest, delightful, sad, hilarious, wonderful
Ms. Hemple Chronicles
Weird, beautiful, funny, melancholy, and I will never EVER be a teacher
Right now I have checked out from the library The Night Circus and The Snow Child.
Your turn. What have you read lately, and what would you recommend?
