And you’re cool if you don’t read books too.
We are all cool. Glad we settled that.
Here are a few books I have been reading lately. I guess you could call these “reviews” although I hardly think I’m qualified for that. But to me, this blog is about sharing things I love. Which includes lots of food, it’s true. But also books, sometimes crafts, sometimes fashion, sometimes pictures of my family. The usual suspects.
I’ve mentioned my love of Neil Gaimon before. It’s an ongoing love relationship we have, Neil and I. I can call him Neil since we are friends…right? Anansi Boys is the story of two seemingly opposite brothers who are forced into a confrontation with each other that exposes them to the world of their late father, the world of gods, that is. The book reads like a modern fable and deals with gods who are similar to the mythical greek gods in that they are “flawed” but they are more animalistic, so to speak. It is such a fun, and at some places touching, book. I loved it. You should too.
I was in the market for a fun, easy beach book. And this fit the bill. I loved this as much as the first in the series. I don’t know why a movie isn’t being made of these books. I laughed, I cried (really, I did) and I thoroughly enjoyed another of Kate Jacobs’ beautifully human novels. I have now read all the books she has published. So if anyone knows Kate personally, please let her know that I’m tapping my foot and waiting for another. Soon, please. I’m a very demanding fan.
I cannot really “review” this book yet. I have only just started it. I was hoping for something a bit more…meaty (said the vegetarian) and I think I may be in luck. To be honest I am having a bit of trouble getting into it, but the characters and relationships being set up have great potential-in that they are both interesting and unexpected. So I am looking forward to this.
And it was a recommendation from one of you all. So thanks.
Told you I read the books you say.
What are you all reading lately? And good “beach” books?
