Summer reads

June 23, 2008

This post is a part of the Friendly Book Nooks summer reading extravaganza! You can find it here (I am sorry but I can’t get link’s to work here). It is actually winter here in Australia but there is no better time to curl up with a good book. So I thought I would post about my favorite reads here.

1. Any Jodi Picoult book- the first one of hers that I read was My Sister’s Keeper. It tells the story of Anna a 13 year old who sues her parents for the right to her own body after they want her to donate a kidney to her sister, Kate, who has Leukemia. The plot is way more complicated but I don’t want to say too much and give it away. My Sister’s Keeper (like all of Pucoult’s novels) made me think and tugged at my heart strings. I really enjoyed it.

2. Cathy Kelly is a new find for me. She is listed as a romance writer but romance was not the central feature of her books for me. They are much deeper than that and I am enjoying unearthing all the layers of her books.

These are just my current favourites and I am sure I will think of more so I will write more posts on this in the future.
