Special note: I haven’t written in quite a while. Summer comes and goes so quickly I took every opportunity to enjoy it and my blog suffered. But now that it’s time for kids to go back to school, I figure it’s a good time to get back to it. I’ve added a few new features too, including pages for recipes and a photo gallery. And since the students are hitting the books again, I thought books were a great topic to write about for my blog’s return. I hope you enjoy.
I’m not a sophisticated critic of books. I’m not even loyal to one genre. Sometimes I pick a book just because it’s on Target’s endcap and I like the cover’s bright colors. But lately, I’ve found the lists of recommended books people post on Pinterest have been reliable resources for selecting my next story. Naturally, after looking at all of the books other people suggested, it made me think…What are the books that I found memorable and would recommend to others? Well, here’s a short list that came to mind rather quickly. But before you read on, please note that I reserve the right to add to this list in the future as my memory is horrible so I will likely miss many that I’ll regret.
