I’ve actually known this for some time now since she’s my future wife and all, but now I know WHAT she likes reading too. These seven books are among her favorites. And will likely become some of mine.
The Other Boleyn Girl by Phillipa Gregory.
Those books following Harry, Ron, and Hermione.
Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy.
Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters by J.D. Salinger.
The Rum Diary by Hunter S. Thompson.
We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver.
The Glass Castle by Jeanette Wells.
Looks like I got some reading to do. I haven’t read anything on here except for the first two HP books. But after a long day on set I’m sure she’ll sometimes just want to read one of these and then ask me what I think of them. But I won’t know until I read them.
Have any thoughts on Jen’s (yes, I call her Jen) favorite books?
First, this post is coming way later than normal because once again the weather decided to pound Houston with rain. The city in which I live got something like 11 inches of rain just yesterday! And the power went out around 10:00 last night and still isn’t back on yet. And I have no phone. So, I’m writing this at Fedex.
A long time ago I asked y’all to pick my next read by voting in a poll. I chose five random books from the Amazon 100 Books to Read in a Lifetime List and asked that y’all vote to pick which one I read next. With the power outage of the last 24 hours, I’m finally getting around to finishing that first book y’all picked and decided that I might as well ask the same quetion once again.
So, I’m going to just pick five books from the Amazon list and ask that y’all vote to decide what I read next.
I don’t really know anything about these books, once again. But I decided to include the two choices from my first poll that recieved the most votes but did not win. But I won’t tell y’all which books those are.
So, tell me what I should read next. And feel free to vote and comment to make your case.
I have a lot of comments that I’ll be responding to once I have power back.
