Have you read any of these? What did you think?
Heh, I love (attempting) to be a book matchmaker as well! Great choices :)ReplyDelete
Going by the favourite books in the classics list, I definitely need to read Lindsey's books. She has great taste ;)ReplyDelete
I can't even put into words how much I loved The Hunger Games series, those books will be favorites of mine for a very long time:) And I adore Hex Hall and Demonglass as well, Rachel Hawkins has such a fun sense of humor and those books make me laugh! I should go back and read more of the classics, I read a ton of them in school but it was always a kind of chore since it was part of an assignment, I bet it would be more fun now:)ReplyDelete
Great post! I briefly met Lindsey at the Teen Book Con in Houston! She is such a great author! Love her classics picks!ReplyDelete
I'm glad to see that Hex Hall made your list because I'm not sure that book is getting as much buzz at it deserves. I loving that series.ReplyDelete
Awesome list. I picked up a few as recommendations. I love playing book matchmaker too so these are definitely some to keep in mind. Thanks!
I'm almost ashamed to say that I have not yet read Slaughterhouse Five (although it IS on my I-must-read-before-I-die list!) My Not-So-Bebe-Girl turned me on to The Hunger Games series (BLEW through them, especially the first two!), and have a 22-year-old, 17-year-old, and 10-year-old who have all read the Harry Potter books (me along with them) - LOVE, even on re-reads! The Giver is a household favorite and I have The Mysterious Benedict Society on my wishlist! Great list of books!ReplyDelete
Hmm I would be really interested to see what she loves about Sense and Sensibility -- I know a lot of people don't find that one as intriguing as Austen's other works. Great lists -- I love ALL of those books!ReplyDelete
I love standing in book stores and recommending books to people although they may find me to be intrusive >.< some of them may even think I'm attempting to flirt, but I'm not! I just want to push books into people's hands!ReplyDelete
Excellent choices. There is nothing better than recommending the right book to a person!ReplyDelete
I loved Sean Griswold's Head but still need to read Lindsey's other series.
Thanks for the reminder!
