Can You Tell I Love Fantasy? by Lauren Spieller
My nightstand has four books, and those are just the tip of the “to read” iceberg! I’ve been on a fantasy kick lately, so all of these novels are chock full of the fantastic.
I’m currently about halfway into Ray Bradbury’s Something Wicked This Way comes, which is fantastic. It’s a must read for anyone who enjoys fantasy or spooky stories. I’ve also started Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones. You may have seen the Miyazaki animated version of this novel, but you’re missing out if you haven’t read the book! I’m only a few pages in, but it’s already a wonderful read with compelling characters. Juliana Brandt, a YA author I met through the online writing community, recommended it to me, and so far I love it!
Once I finish those two, I’ll move on to Stardust by Neil Gaiman. My wonderful boyfriend bought me an autographed copy to celebrate the completion of my first novel, Sightless, so I can’t wait to dive in! I think it might be the perfect read for the holidays. And last but not least, I cannot wait to start Saraphina by Rachel Hartman. Who doesn’t love DRAGONS?
