What I Will Be Reading #10

The Modern Mrs. Darcy offered to pick books for her readers based on the types of books they enjoyed. You had to provide three books you loved, one you hated, and the last one you read. I’m always looking for new good books, so I got in early on the recommendations. The books I provided were as follows (click on the link to see my review of each):

Love: Flight Behavior, TerrierThe Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
Hate: Naked Lunch
Last read: Jitterbug Perfume

From my list of books, she provided a mainstream pick, an eccentric pick, and YA. I’m adding all the ones I haven’t read to my to read list. They include (along with the rationale for the inclusion):

The Girl You Left Behind by JoJo Moyes, incorporates elements from the books on Natalie’s Love List: mystery, World War II, and shifting personal relationships.

The Engagements by J. Courtney Sullivan is a wild card here–it’s the Pick Most Likely to Flop.

I decided to start with the oddest choice and am reading this book now.

The Uncommon Reader is a charming novella that seems perfect for any Guernsey lover

I read this book and loved it. Follow the link to my review.

The Age of Miracles: A Novel by Karen Thompson Walker is an obvious companion to Flight Behavior, Barbara Kingsolver’s novel about butterflies, climate change, and finding your way.

I can’t help throwing in Princess Academy, by Shannon Hale, which is on my to-read list, and The Search for Delicious by Natalie Babbit, one of my Kid Lit favorites.

I’ve been devouring YA lately, so I’m looking forward to reading these as well. Looks like I’ve got some good books to read. Anything you want to add to my list?
