READ

“1984” by George Orwell
“My Sister’s Keeper” by Jodi Picoult -so sad! Will write a review when I have a chance
“The Tales of Beedle the Bard” by J.K. Rowling – read it in about an hour. Great fairy tales!
“To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Leeso good. Will also write a review when I have a chance
“Bones to Ashes” by Kathy Reichs – another good book by her. Same formula but always a great read.
“The God of Small Things” by Arundhati Roy – the writing style takes a bit of getting used to but is absolutly fantastic! The way Roy describes things is amazing – in one of the reviews I read it says that she writes from the view of a child.
Cloudstreet by Tim Winton – great book! Interesting writing style but a fantastic storyline. Definitely one to read.
“Rides a Dread Legion” by Raymond E Feist – the newest book from this fantastic author. Fantastic as always but do not read unless you’ve read the 18 books in the series beforehand….

“The City of Falling Angels” by John Berendt
