For her impending honeymoon, Brooke has been collating a list of books I’ve recommended to her to take with her (I know, I don’t know when she’s planning on reading them either…), and so to keep track, and so she can find them nice and easily, I thought it would be nice to post them here, with some little shopping links. (I’m linking to amazon because it’s easiest, and because I think she’s taking her Kindle. It’s not because I have any affiliation with them!)
The Princess Bride, by William Goldman
Yes, it’s the book of the cult 80’s movie, and it is amazing. The funniest book I have read for a long, long time.
Mr Fox, by Helen Oyeyemi
I’m not sure if this is Brooke’s cup of tea, really, but I thought it was really cleverly written, and I really enjoyed it.
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows
This is such a cute story, I really enjoyed it (even if I did work it out way before the protagonist did 😉 )
Jamrach’s Menagerie, by Carol Birch
This review is spot on: Put Moby Dick, Treasure Island and The Rime of the Ancient Mariner into a pot, add a pinch of Dickens, and you will get the flavour of Carol Birch’s hugely entertaining novel.
Life of Pi, by Yann Martel
Because it’s fantastic. (I need to watch the film again soon!)
Would you add anything else to a Honeymoon Reading List?
