Recommended by Dear Friends

Today I was talking to my dear good friend, V, who is brilliant and reads books that I’ve never even heard of, but should definitely read. This list is as much for my benefit as yours, because if I don’t have them written down somewhere I will forget all too easily. So without further adieu (I really want to finish the novel I’m on right now!) these are V’s must-reads.

War for the Oaks by Emma Bull
Exodus by Julie Bertagna
Zenith by Julie Bertagna

Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman
Master and Margarita by Michale Buglakov
Captain Corelli’s Mandolin by Louis de Berniers
Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett
Secret Sacrament by Sherryl Jordan
Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk
Survivor by Chuck Palahniuk
Million Little Pieces by James Frey
Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
Chinese Cinderella by Adeline Yen Mah
The Host by Stephanie Meyer
Hard to be a God by the Strugatsky Brothers
The Bean Tree by Barbara Kingsolver
A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini
The Loop by Nicholas Evans

She says that’s it for now. Thanks, V! I’m sorry I haven’t read them yet, my mind just sort of goes foggy when I enter a library….

Since I’ve yet to read these, reviews for them WILL be posted when I do read them. I can’t wait, can you?
