With the (can I say crappy?) weather we have been having lately, if you’re anything like me all you want to do is curl up somewhere warm with a good book. (I started this blog last week and looking at the comments on A good book, a log fire, jazz and mulled wine – many of us love to read somwhere warm in the winter.)
So I thought I would take this opportunity to mention two books I have been recommended by library users, and to see if I can glean any more reads in return to get me through winter. Firstly, a book I finished recently is The Senator’s wife by Sue Miller. This is a wonderful character driven novel that made me want to go to bed early so I could read.
I think the same customer also recommended the book I’m reading now. Another fantastic character driven read, especially if you like using novels as a form of escape. In the heart of the canyon by Elisabeth Hyde is about white water rafting trip down the Grand Canyon with an unlikely grouping of people and a stray dog that turns up their first night on the trip. You’re suddenly transported to midsummer heat in Arizona – now that would warm you up!
So any other recommendations to add to my list?
