Books for you to love

I’m always on the lookout for a good read.  Below are a few of my favorites.

For now, I’m just gonna list them as they come to mind.

Eventually, I’ll sort them into how much brainpower each takes to get through.  That’s how I decide what to read of late.  (So yes, that means I’m half way through See Spot Run.)

The Woman in White – by Wilkie Collins, 1859

Pretty please DO NOT read anything about this book before you read it.  Not a review, no intros, not even the back cover.  This was the first (and only) book that I had no idea how it would end.  It was a wonderfully unexpected treat.  Imagine that, a book that you didn’t have figured out as you were reading!

 

The Importance of Being Earnest, A Trivial Comedy for Serious People – by Oscar Wilde, 1895 – first performance

The more I read, the more I said, “Oh no he didn’t!”  But he did.  And he kept doing it.  Genius.

 

The Minister’s Wooing  – by Harriet Beecher Stowe, 1859

Probably one of my most favorite books.  I need to read it again to tell you why.  For now, I just have leftover warm fuzzies.

 

Little Men – by Louisa May Alcott, 1871

The companion book to Little Women (which you don’t need to read first for this book to make sense).  If you have sons – this book opens up their little minds and gives insight into their world.  It’s a game-changer.
