Because I don’t talk about books nearly enough on this blog.
~A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness – This book is frighteningly relevant to my life right now because my dad has terminal cancer. I understood A Monster Calls more than I would have at any other time; it’s one of the truest things I’ve ever read.
~The Cherokee Trail by Louis L’Amour – One of my mom’s favorite books. It’s neat that L’Amour has written a book with a strong female lead (as opposed to women being supporting roles/two-dimensional love interests in most of his stories). One of his best novels.
~House by Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker – Just no.
(I’m not even putting a picture of the cover here. *shudders*)
~We’ll Always Have Casablanca by Noah Isenberg – The third book I’ve read about the history, making, and legacy of ‘Casablanca’. Fascinating read, though I already knew most of the facts presented.
~The Daybreakers by Louis L’Amour – One of my favorite books by Louis L’Amour. It’s not the most interesting one, but the characters are rich and well-developed (my brother thinks that L’Amour put more effort into his Sackett books than any of the others). Tom Sunday breaks my heart. And more cracks appeared when I found out that Glenn Ford plays him in the TV miniseries because it’s horribly perfect casting.
~Textrovert by Lindsey Summers – A cute, fun read with more than a couple surprises. I think it’s cool that the author got her start on Wattpad.
