Each fortnight, month, fifteenth full moon of the half equational motion of the earths full circuit I will showcase 1-2 books that I think would be fantastic reading if you're going through a certian emotion/stage in your life.
Wanting to be somewhere else.
A different world or just with a bunch of characters who will captivate you with no holding back.
Un Lun Dun- China Miéville.
The other version of London is featured in this book (not to mention men with birdcages for heads and milk carton friends) and what a place it is! There is darkness lurking and so much whimsy. Umbrella ninjas! You don't have time to think of anything else, not with all the wonder and twists in this story.
Coraline- Neil Gaiman.
It's the kind of read that pulls you along, even though you might be the teeniest bit terrified of where exactly it is taking you- it's a whirlwind of a story and a little bit impossible not to run after.
Poison- Bridget Zinn.
A really incredible story of a young woman who tried to poison her best friend- a friend who just happened to be a princess. A poisoner, the most talented in the kingdom, is on the run and the princess she so desperately wanted dead is still out there. It's just a brief overview and already I'm there!
Stay tuned for some more bookish suggestions for the good times, and the bad.
So far I've covered-
