Summer Reads


In Summer I read the fun stuff. There's almost always a new Stephen King but this year I've moved on to his son, Joe Hill's new book. I recommend NOS4A2. Great horror ride. I also read a friend's new book- Hot Flashes and Cold Lemonade- and any woman going thru menopause should read it. Very funny and not in the tritest ways. I began the Summer reading Bradbury's colllection The Illustrated Man. What's everyone reading this Summer?

Flamel the Immortal

A friend recommended the series about Nicholas Flamel the Immortal by Michael Scott. I zipped thru the first and am waiting for delivery of the second. They're classified YA, but like the Harry Potter series, suit all ages. The weaving of classic gods and mythical creatures into the story of 2 teenagers and Mr. Flamel (who was an alchemist under Elizabeth I's reign) with Dr. John Dee (another alchemist of the time) is ingenious. It's another "good vs. evil with heroes' journeys" tale, but holds your attention, is well paced and not taxing to read. Lovely fair weather material.

I needed a break from A Song of Ice and Fire. :)
