Here you go, Jean

Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
Things Not Seen by Andrew Clements
Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen

The first two were 5 star reads for me, and Garden Spells was a 4 star read.

I hope you like it. My youngest son's friend from high school says that it has one of the best depictions of a blind character she has read. She is pretty picky since she has been blind from birth; she believes that there aren't enough strong blind characters in stories.

I thought the story line was pretty interesting, too.

Sorry for the delay, Marina. I am feeling in a classics mood this morning, so here are you choices:

The Time Machine
The Moonstone
The Call of the Wild


message 11: by Marina (new)

Marina (sonnenbarke) | 1400 comments No worries, Lyn!

All the books you recommend should be great ones, it's difficult for me to decide... But I think I will pick The Moonstone. Thanks!

I own that book, but have never read it. Let me know what you think when you finish!

OK, here you go...

Since You've Been Gone - I thought this book was very interesting.
Angels Burning
The House We Grew Up In - I have this one on my TBR, too.

YAY, someone finally landed on my property. Here are your three choices:

The Lost Symbol
One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich (read this in collage. Interesting book)
The Invention of Wings

lol, I'm not the first one though it seems like it's been a while (!)

I'd probably read One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich to fit in with another challenge ;)
Though really I should read The Lost Symbol (one of my dozen Scattershelves books left to read!)

Thanks, Lyn!

I have read them both and they are both very good, but Ivan Densisovich is very interesting.
