Saturday, May 10, 2008A COUPLE OF BOOKS
I took this past week to read some books from the Adult (!) section of the library, and in my previous post, I promised to share a couple of them with you today. (Sorry guys -- they're both kind of girly books.)
Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen: a tree that tosses charmed apples, the herbs and flowers that have mysterious qualities growing in the same garden, an enchanted family of sisters and daughters and aunts and grandmothers, a prodigal sister returning home after running away from her abusive boyfriend, and a handsome new neighbour next door ferociously attracted to the other sister -- a recipe for a magical tale (think Practical Magic).
The Boy Next Door by Meggin Cabot: a light-weight chick-lit from the current queen of chick-lit -- attempted murder, the neighbour's very large dog, a girl who works as a gossip columnist, an ex-boyfriend, an irresponsible and angry nephew, a friend who owes a favour, New York sinkholes, and a case of mistaken identity; oh yeah, and did I mention the charming adorable perfect guy who also plays a main part? and it's told entirely in emails!
Both of these books were entirely fun and enjoyable, and I recommend them.
