Weekend Wonderings

Ok, so this is a bit of a cheat post, but, you know, I have a two month old, so give me a break. I had to have my shower in three separate segments this morning due to said two month old and her incessant screaming, so you’re damned lucky to be getting a post at all.

Have you all seen the AOW Book Store on Amazon? We created it so that you could easily find all of the, frankly completely awesome and totally diverse, books that get mentioned on here (we should also mention that if you buy a book through this link, we get some sort of negligible and insignificant amount of money paid to us. We will not be getting rich from it any time soon, but thought you ought to know, in the spirit of being open and all that).

We’ve got books that get talked about in the comments, like Tom’s fabulous suggestion on Anna’s post ‘Mokita’

We’ve got books mentioned in the ever popular ‘Books that made me, me’ series,

And we’ve got books that we just love for one reason or another and think you might too.

But tell us…what books should be in there that aren’t? What are we missing? What books should be on every AOWers must-read list?

PS keep an eye out for the next ‘Books that made me, me‘ instalment coming up in the very near future. It’s a little bit different, and you are going to adore it. Promise.

    I have some suggestions for excellant books to read.
    Patrick Ness is one of my favourite children's authors and the Chaos Walking triliogy is amazing, it is a gem of a book and although it is aimed at 13+ years I guarntee you as an adult it will make you think.
    'Fallen Leaves' by Adeline Jen Mah is a moving story of an unwanted chinese daughter, its heartbreaking and you will cry while reading it but its worth it.
    'Alone in Berlin' by Hans Fallada is a haunting novel and can be a hard read but stick at it and you wont be disappointed.

    I could go on for ages but will stop at these three.
