How sad is it that I’m living vicariously through my wintry Sunday Book Club graphic? We have had NO STICKING SNOW this winter. NONE. My snow-loving heart is in mourning. And slightly cranky about the whole thing. But this picture … blissful sigh.
Ok. Anyway, back to the Sunday Book Club.
This coming week, for Top Ten Tuesday, I’ll be talking about books that I’ve liked more than I thought I would. Whether it’s because the cover didn’t jump out and grab me … or I wasn’t familiar with the author … or it’s not my usual genre… or I’d “heard things” about the book. I of course can’t give the whole post away but one of mine will be The Five Times I Met Myself by James Rubart. It’s written by a man and the main character is a man and I just didn’t think I would be able to connect with the writing voice or the protagonist. Well. I was so wrong it’s just embarrassing. It’s become one of my very favorite reads and it completely deserved the Christy Award for Book of the Year.
So what about you? What are some books you’ve read that you liked more than you thought you would?
