With great power comes great responsibility…or so they say.
I have become the official book recommender for my friends and I have to admit that the thought terrifies me. It isn’t that I don’t know which books I love or which books would appeal to others, it’s that there’s a lot of judgement that can come from recommending a bad book. If it isn’t a good fit, you could turn someone off to a whole genre. Or worse, turn a reluctant reader off of books forever.
Here are a few of my go to book recommendations that suit most any reader and any mood.
Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld
Dracula by Bram Stoker
Room by Emma Donoghue
