4 Winter Book Recommendations

2016Kim Brush2 Comments

Winter is a great time to tackle my "to be read" list of books.  My library lets me make a list of "for later" books so I can look and see what is available to be read when I finish a book!  Do you have a list like this?  Digital or physical?  Well I hope that I can add a few titles in with my book recommendations from November!  Enjoy!

A Rose Blooms Twice by Vikki Kestell

Living through tragedy is the universal story. 

In this book we get a picture of the old west on the prairie.  A woman's family is torn away from her and she has to start over.  She chooses a new town, new friends and learns through tests of courage, adventure and love that a new life awaits her.

Loved this sweet book.

Mindspeak (The Mindspeak Series book 1) by Heather Sunseri

What if our DNA could be altered so we could talk to others in our minds or heal people just by thinking about it?  Mindspeak is about a group of teens who were created for just this purpose. This YA sci fi novel is the first in a series about their journey.  I enjoyed the plot and characters in this book. 

Not fluffy or full of too much romance for me!

Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel

What if a flu took the lives of 99% of everyone on earth in a matter of a few weeks?  How would you survive?  Humans are resilient and resourceful but any pandemic would change the lives of those who survived.  This doomsday books was excellent.  The story follows several people and what happened to them.   Violence and the deterioration of society is a given in this kind of situation it is handled without lots of graphic description.  Great book!

The Bookshop on the Corner by Jenny Colgan

Books are my passion and escape from responsibilities.

Well that and crafts. 

I love this story about a laid off single librarian who decides to rescue books from closed down old libraries and bring them to the rural people of Scotland.  She is scared of taking the risk with her future but finds friendship, love and new appreciation for the rural way of life.

Sweet book that encouraged me to search out what I really WANT from life and pursue it despite my fears of failure.
