My Favourite Reads

Standard

Not easy to condense because I love a wide variety of material. It is easier to say what I don’t like, which is downbeat drama. Not that I can’t be persuaded once in a while to try something out.

Today’s favourites:

  • Black Beauty – Anna Sewell (1st published November 1877, sadly she died in April 1878)
  • Flowers for Algernon – Daniel Keyes (sci-fi with real human emotions – amazing)
  • The Curious Incident of the Dog in The Night-time – Mark Haddon (a delightful tale, made me laugh, cry, feel happy and sad)
  • The Magic Cottage – James Herbert (one of my favourite authors and I read this book every 18 months – love it!)
  •  Robot Dreams – Isaac Asimov (inspired the film I Robot – classic sci-fi by the master who created the term robotics)
  • American Gods – Neil Gaiman (a power-house read by a fantastic writer)picture058
