Two books to add to my reading list this week. Both are YA and both are because they reference other books/authors that I love.
The first comes from Modern Mrs. Darcy. At the end of her most recent post, she recommended When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead. I am interested in the book because A Wrinkle in Time is a major plot point. Considering I’m currently reading Mr. Curiosity A Wrinkle in Time and we’re enjoying it immensely, I’m intrigued enough to put When You Reach Me on my reading list.
The second book is Here, There Be Dragons by James Owens. (Be sure to include the comma, or you find a Jane Yolen book by the same name.) This is the first book in The Chronicles of the Imaginarium Geographica series. I found what turned out to be the last book in the series on the library shelf the other day. The dragon on the cover caught my eye, but it was the blurb on the back that really got my attention:
When J. R. R. Tolkien, C. S. Lewis, and Charles Williams are asked by H. G. Wells to become Caretakers of the Imaginarium Geographica, an atlas of imaginary places, their lives – and the lives of their readers – will never be the same.
I will admit I don’t know who Charles Williams is, but I love the other authors. Sounded good to me! Now, I’m just waiting for the book to come in at the library.
Anything else I should add to my reading list?
