All right, book nerds, impress me.
My friend is looking for fiction to read. She usually does non-fiction (meaning 84, Charing Cross Road was perfect for her and yes, she's already read it and possibly its sequel), but wants to branch out. This is what she's looking for:
- Smart and thoughtful
- Including books/libraries is good but not required
-Tedious = bad
From personal experience and what she's recently told me, I know she likes Ender's Game (although who doesn't?) and its ensuing books; she just read The Name of the Rose, Middlesex, and re-read The Historian, but she only likes the beginning of that because, let's face it, that's the best part.
She's studying to be/kind of is a rare books librarian, and she likes Reformation history, because she's a lovable weirdo.
OH and she loves Gone With the Wind. A lot. Because she's good people.
SUGGEST THINGS. I will only make fun of you if you skimmed this post and suggest something I said she already read. Oh, or if you say something by Nicholas Sparks. Because that's just silly.
