World Book Night Recommendations

On World Book Night we asked for readers to recommend a book, which many did, over the coming weeks I will be posting the recommendations here on the blog, to start things off we have…

 

John Green FaultTitle: The Fault In Our Stars

Author: John Green

Genre: Young Adult/Adult

 

 

 

 

Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten.

Comments: Funny, sad, eye-opening on dealing with terminal illness in young adults.

 

Anita Notaro Take a lookTitle: Take a Look At Me Now

Author: Anita Notaro

 

 

 

 

 

Most of us can remember a defining moment in our lives. A split second when time stood still and our lives changed forever. For Lily Ormond, that moment came late one night when she answered a knock on the door and discovered that while she’d been smashing garlic and rosemary and watching the soaps, her sister Alison had drowned.

Comments: Page turner. Excellent.
