A book is a gift you can open again and again – Garrison Keillor*
Sometime ago, I said that I would save up to buy a good book each month.
I had a lot to choose from but in the end, these 3 topped my list; [and I bought them all 😛 ]
- Tuesdays With Morrie – Mitch Albom.. it was a recommendation from Clazirus and Princess.
- The Harmony Silk Factory – Tash Aw.. now, wuzzit Princess who read it again.. I’m not sure.
- Little Face – Sophie Hannah
I am going to read Little Face first, this weekend simply because the thriller nature of it just appeals to me. If any of you have read any of these books, DO NOT give me the spoilers.
I had wanted to purchase Hannibal Rising but several reviews put me off. Maybe a 2nd hand copy later on. I still have my Thomas Harris collection to complete, that’s why.
I enjoy thrillers a lot. Also family love sorta thing. Somewhere along the lines of Jodi Piccoult you know. Not into romance that much. I could.. but only when the mood strikes, and that happens rarely.
So, any other recommendations? New, rising authors maybe?
