More like I fell… in love with McNally Jackson and also got some books too I guess. Mostly, I picked up classics!
- The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin
I know, I bet you guys are kind of confused by all of my strange selections. This bookstore just really took my taste and threw it to the wind.
A bizarre chain of events begins when sixteen unlikely people gather for the reading of Samuel W. Westing’s will. And though no one knows why the eccentric, game-loving millionaire has chosen a virtual stranger—and a possible murderer—to inherit his vast fortune, on things for sure: Sam Westing may be dead…but that won’t stop him from playing one last game!
- The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
Yeah, how on earth can I be a book lover if I’ve never read this modern day classic? I’ve hear it before, trust me.
Don’t leave earth without this story of the end of the world and the happy-go-lucky days that follow. The writing of New York Times Best-selling author, Douglas Adams, has been brilliantly successful on both sides of the Atlantic in radio, television, theatre and spoken word audio.
- A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray
This was another strange, out of character pick. I don’t 1. like series, or 2. like historical fiction, but look at me go. I’m on a strange roll.
It’s 1895, and after the suicide of her mother, 16-year-old Gemma Doyle is shipped off from the life she knows in India to Spence, a proper boarding school in England. Lonely, guilt-ridden, and prone to visions of the future that have an uncomfortable habit of coming true, Gemma’s reception there is a chilly one. To make things worse, she’s been followed by a mysterious young Indian man, a man sent to watch her. But why? What is her destiny? And what will her entanglement with Spence’s most powerful girls—and their foray into the spiritual world—lead to?
