THE TAG

G — A book you’re Grateful to a friend for recommending // Goldwater Ridge by Hannah Kaye! My friend Mary knows my tastes well. I was so excited when I got my hands on G.R. the first time and devoured it. She was right, I loved it. 😀

I — A book that fires your Imagination // Sherlock Holmes’s stories. There is SO much scope for imagination there—so many other tales that could be fabricated from all those details—so many fascinating retellings and side-stories!

V — A book with a Vivid setting // The Golden Goblet by Eloise Jarvis McGraw. I’ve always been fascinated with Egypt—specifically Ancient Egypt—and this makes the land and era pop. It’s perhaps the vividest setting I have ever read—absolutely phenomenal and sucks you into the current era better than any hisfic ever did, except maybe Twain’s Prince & the Pauper.

E — An Encouraging book // Once I Knew by Victoria Lynn. I just read this book and quite enjoyed it! It’s got excellent reminders and is just encouraging and pleasant. ❤

🍁

T — A book that Taught you something // Imma say the Anne of Green Gables series. Every time I read one of the books I come away with a new lesson, a new thought, a new inspiration. There’s so much more in those books than just imagination and romance.

H — A Happy book // Jack & Jill by Louisa May Alcott. More people need to read this and talk of it, y’all. Typically Alcott, it’s the story of young people for a year, learning to live life and grow up, but also just being happy and satisfied with their youth. It’s so peaceful and beautiful!

A — An Amusing book // Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown. I read and enjoyed this as a kid, rediscovered it this year and shared it with my little siblings, who appreciated it as much as I had. It’s the best of the series, very funny and well done and even sweet.

N — A New-to-you book or author you discovered this year // Sarah Brazytis! I am totally on the lookout for more of her books. Her writing style just “vibes,” for lack of a better word, with me and I love it!

K — A fictional character you feel a Kinship with // Charity from Dandelion Dust by Faith Potts. Feeling “less than,” hating motels, doing stuff because it’s expected, planning a future and ignoring the present… yes, all me. 

S — A book you want to Share with others // The Wheat Princess by Jean Webster. This is quite a unique and fascinating book, probably not for everyone, but very thought-provoking.
