So a girlfriend asked me, "Jen, I need some good authors. Any suggestions?"
Little did she know. . . reading is a passion for me--a huge part of my life. I am an English major after all :) So, this is just the tip of the iceberg and some that I suggested to her.
I really like Jessica Day George's stuff--more YA but I like it.
enjoy the Susan Wittig Albert's The Beatrix Potter Cottage series--
Ally Condie--Matched trilogy is good
you read Lois Lowry's The Giver series?
John Flanagan's The Ranger's
Apprentice series is one of our family's all time faves
I like (most)
of Eva Ibbotson's stuff--The Morning Gift is my fave
Our Boys by Joe
Drape--I really liked
Alan Bradley--The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie
is the first in a series--mystery
Kristen Britain's Green Rider
Julia Golding's Dragonfly is Miss A's favorite book, and I really
I like Janette Rallison's stuff--more YA but fun--like laugh out loud fun, and good characters
Joan Bauer's stuff--YA, but great, strong female characters
Peck's A Long Way from Chicago and then A Year Down Yonder are excellent,
laugh out loud--they are great read-alouds, and really all his stuff is good that I have read
Holes by Louis Sachar
Hillenbrand--nonfiction, loved, loved, loved Unbroken by her
So hopefully in your hot summer weather (sure is hot here) you can find a good book to curl up with by your air conditioner or the pool! Happy reading!
