So, I’ve been promising my friend Mila that I would compile a list of book recommendations for her. I thought it would be fun to share the list with others as well. By no means is this a complete list (or a long one, for that matter), but I’ve got to start somewhere. Also, I’m not including some books that I know she has already read (like Lord of the Rings).
Okay, stick with me, because by far this is going to be the silliest sounding book series I list. This series follows the adventures of several different animals living in a medieval world. The stories are brilliant and heartbreaking.
There are 40 books, so far, in this series. The books cover everything from technology to insurance. A very humorous take on serious fantasy novels.
–The Wheel of Time
There are 14 books in this series, and it’s a very long, very detailed story. I’ll be honest, I’ve not gotten very far in this book series. However, what I’ve read has been quite excellent, and everyone I know who has finished it has really liked it.
–A Song of Ice and Fire
This is a fantastic series, but be prepared to have your heart broken. Don’t get attached to characters, because it’s likely they won’t survive. A word of caution, this series doesn’t shy away from describing anything. Definitely not child friendly.
-Dave Barry & Ridley Pearson’s Peter Pan Series
Initially, I didn’t want to read these books, because much as I love Dave Barry, I didn’t think the overall idea of an update to a classic story was a good idea. I was wrong. If anything, these books have made me love the original even more.
Okay, that does it for this week’s list. I’m thinking I’ll make this a weekly thing, until I have shared all the books & series that I can come up with.
