September Recommended Reading List

For the month of September my reading theme revolves around the unusual and the sublime. I have selected three great reads that may shock you, may move you, or may expand your horizons just a little bit.

“Frozen Fire,” by Tim Bowler


This shocking thriller is about a powerful, supernatural creature that visits a remote town during the dead of winter. "Frozen Fire" is characterized by cold winter imagery, and a disquieting tone that percolates through the entire text. The book's surprise ending completely blew me away.



“Criss Cross” by Lynne Rae Perkins

Lynne Rae Perkins has created a sublime novel about the summertime experiences of a group of teens. This book starts with a wish and the journey that commences is flavored with the warm feeling of summer afternoons. This Newberry Award Winning book is about fireflies, love, and dreams.



“Whirligig,” by Paul Fleischman

When Brent Bishop, a young man desperate to fit in, is involved in a drunk driving accident that takes the life of fellow student Lea Zamora., his life changes forever. As restitution he must make a unusual journey to the four corners of the United States. Along the way he learns about what really matters in life.

"Frozen Fire," by Tim Bowler sounds intriguing! I'll add it to my to-read list now,,, of course it's gonna do battle with the 100+ other titles, and the fact that despite having a to-read list I don't bring it with me when visiting the library, so I walk away with other books that happened to catch my eye :)

Yeah, I understand. This is a great book, though, so try to keep it in mind. It won't disappoint you, that I can assure.

Thanks for commenting, Lynne.
