Recently Added to my To-Read List

10 Jan

I had to go really far back in my blog to find the last time I did one of these posts! Like always, let me know if I’ve got a dud or a winner. I love to hear from you all.

  1. The Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor. If I saw this book on my ‘Recommended for You’ list one more time, I was going to scream. So I added it. The story follows a strange girl living in Prague who’s swept into a strange tale involving the devil. Yes, the description is vague, but I’ll still read it.
  2. Left Behind by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins. I was talking to a friend about book series and he said that this is the only one he’s ever read. So I’m intrigued. It’s a series of Christian books about those left behind after the apocalypse.
  3. The Elements of Style by William Strunk Jr. and E.B. White. I just finished reading On Writing and in it, King recommends that all fledgling writers read this book. I bow to the King in this matter
  4. Pope Francis Speaks to our Hearts. This was a small gift from a friend around the holidays. I got it because I was the only Catholic besides my husband and he got the book on beer. It’s a lot of short quotes from Francis (which might be a little mature into his term, but hey).
  5. The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey by Walter Mosley. A friend of mine commented on Goodreads that she couldn’t put this book down because it was so good. I hope I feel the same. Grey is an old man who has shut himself off from the world. His new caretaker pushes him to interact with the world he’s missing instead of living the rest of his life in the walls of his home. I recommended this one for my book club, I’ll keep my fingers crossed that it’s picked.
  6. Everything is Connected by Keri Smith. This was a gift from SG at our NaNoel party. I love postcards and this book is a series of postcards, much like the author’s other work, “Wreck This Book.”
  7. Fiction Writer’s Workshop by Josip Novakovich. This was a gift from Nicole at our holiday party. It’s a guide that can be used to play a workshop or to workshop alone. I’ll see which one I feel like doing, haha.

There you go! Have you read any of these? Any of them sound exciting or terrible? Let me know, Reader!

Until next time, write on.
