Reading List

Haven’t done of these in a while. Here are some books I’ve enjoyed in recent months.

book4gameofthronesGame of Thrones Books 1-5┬áby George R.R Martin: Beginning this series is like opening a can of Pringles. Once you pop, you just can’t stop. I thought one book equaled one season of the TV show, so I thought that stopping at book 3 would be simple. How wrong I was. I promise to not give any spoilers, but you’ve been warned.

TW_finalTell the Wolves I’m Home by Carol Rifka Brunt: A 14 year old girl shares her life through stories drenched in complicated versions of love that don’t make it any less special than the cookie-cutter kind. It’s a moving look at grief and friendship that will have you enjoy turning each page.

book3sweettoothSweet Tooth by Ian McEwan: It doesn’t get any more British than this slow burning tale of attraction laced with espionage. With each chapter, you wait for the pin to drop but are happily enjoying the ride in the process. Only a good writer can make that work and McEwan does it pretty effortlessly.

book1nightcircusThe Night Circus by Erin Morgensten: Who doesn’t love a bit of magic in their lives? This story will make you want to be 10 again and seeing the world through eyes open to things that can’t always be explained to be fully believed. There are rumours that this story of a magical circus is going to be turned into a movie soon and I would love to see how they intend to make this highly visual book come alive.

So what have you been reading these days?
