Well, let’s see what rabbit trails we can go down this month!
I have never heard of this book or its author and I know exactly nothing about it. From the amazon page I gather it has won or placed in for a bunch of awards. Probably means it is a piece of trash.
A book that I read AND enjoyed which also won some awards was Connie Willis’ s To Say Nothing of the Dog. A good fun romp that wasn’t trying to “Send a Message”.
A book that was trying to “Send a Message” was this one. House by Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker. Christian fiction trying not to be Christian fiction. Bordered on the horror and I didn’t really care for it.
A book that has a weird House on the cover is definitely The Road to Oz. A pumpkin head living in a pumpkin. Yep, definitely a children’s book.
A book about a child that might appeal to children but definitely appeals to adults is the manga series Yotsuba&!. Ahhh, total cuteness overload. Too bad the manga-ka seems to have let the series slide into oblivion. Thankfully, there was never an overarching plot so we’re not left with a cliffhanger.
Finally, the ultimate cliffhanger is when a series isn’t completed, or doesn’t even makes it to Book Two. In Siege of Daylight was a great book that I read back in ’15 but while the author claimed he had the next 3 books all named and almost ready to go, I haven’t heard or seen a thing since. Too bad to, as I enjoyed it.
Thus ends our little journey from How to be Both to In Siege of Daylight.
