Holiday Reading – 8 of the Best Novels
Several people have requested a book post, so here is the first post on great books to read this holiday. First up is 8 of the Best Novels, followed by 8 of the Best Non-fiction Books and last 8 of the best Visual Inspiration Books. Hope you enjoy!
♦ Stardust – Neil Gaiman
This fantasy novel is beautifully written and you’ll absolutely love it, even if you don’t normally read fantasy novels. If you like fairy tales – you’ll love this novel!
♦ Life of Pi – Yann Martel
This is a remarkable story about a boy who survives when a ship sinks in the pacific ocean. I don’t want to tell you too much about the plot, because it’s so amazing you have to figure it out by yourself.
♦ Siddharta – Herman Hesse
-If you’re into buddhism, I think you’ll like this book. It’s faily short (but good) and I think I read it in two days. Beautiful story and beautiful language.
♦ Hunting and Gathering – Anna Gavalda
This one’s huge, but I still read it so fast – always a good sign for a novel. It’s about a group of friends who end up living together in Paris. The characters in this novel are so unique and intriguing, you’ll wish they were real!
♦ Just Kids – Patti Smith
Technically, this is a memoir, not fiction. However, the story is so interesting and Patti’s past is so full of amazing people and events – it might as well have been a fictional story. Even though you’re not into her music, you’ll love this book about being an artist in New York City.
♦ A Moveable Feast – Ernest Hemingway
This is a classic, and a must-read if you’re at all into Paris and everything French! Also, if you’re a writer – this is the book for you! It’s a quick read perfect for a lazy holiday.
♦ 1Q84 – Haruki Murakami
I haven’t actually finished this yet, but I’m including it nonetheless. I’m reading this book slowly, and every word feels like dark chocolate in my mouth. A-ma-zing so far!
♦ The Secret History – Donna Tarrt
I really enjoyed reading this book, full of interesting twists. It’s about a group of college students who try to conceal a murder. Still, I wouldn’t call this crime, as it is not written as a crime novel. If you like a novel full of interesting psychological twists – read this one!
