Book Reviews, Literary News, and Thoughts on Life
. . . you can’t read just one. Or you can liken them to chocolate chip cookies, if sweet snacks are more your thing.
Seriously. I just read about precious Danny Griggs and all his adorable friends in The Gorgon in the Gully, so naturally I have to visit with his big brother Jonah in Jellicoe Road. Once done with that, I’ll most likely remember that Ben Cassidy and Co. have a hilarious cameo in The Piper’s Son, so I’ll want to read that book. This will leave me with that nostalgic feeling and a desire to visit with Tom and Frankie and all the rest when they were but little high school kids, so I’ll pick up Saving Francesca. And even though I just reread Froi of the Exiles last week or so, I’ll just have to begin the Lumatere Chronicles again with a reading of Finnikin of the Rock.
To sum things up: it’s a vicious, vicious cycle, kids, and one I’m not keen to break. Don’t you dare send anyone for an intervention.
