So, basically my long term plan has always been to be a librarian. I used to have an active BookTube channel, that I’m hoping to start up again this summer maybe? I started this blog thinking I could post book stuff here as well. (Check out some of my other book lists.) However, life happens and dogs happen and depression happens and things get forgotten. But I’m back and hopefully going to keep this blog going this time.
Anyway, I had a guy I knew back in my middle school and high school days message me for book recommendations! Someone I haven’t spoken to in 15ish years reached out to ME for a list of books to read! This felt amazing and I immediately put together a list of books for him. I decided that I would go ahead and share that list on my blog 🙂
The Book List
- The Martian by Andy Weir (science fiction, adventure, space)
- The Passage by Justin Cronin (horror, science fiction, fantasy)
- The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides (thriller, mystery)
- Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ’s Childhood Pal by Christopher Moore (humor, loose historical fiction)
- Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card (science fiction, young adult, fantasy)
- Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers by Mary Roach (nonfiction, science, humor)
- The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson (mystery, thriller, crime)
- Locke and Key by Joe Hill (comic, horror, fantasy)
- Gone Girl by Gilllian Flynn (mystery, thriller, crime)
For the Kids
So, this guy has kids WHO LOOK EXACTLY LIKE HIM and I thought I would put together a book list that they could read together.
- Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl (age 6+, fantasy, humor)
- Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein (age 6+, poetry, humor)
- Coraline by Neil Gaiman (age 8+, fantasy, horror) THIS IS MY FAVORITE BOOK EVER
- The Bad Beginning: A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket (age 9+, fantasy, mystery)
- The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman (age 9+, fantasy, horror)
Interested in more? I don’t only write about books! I also blog about my life. Maybe you’ve considered teaching in South Korea. Why not check out my dogs! They are pretty adorable 🙂 Either way, I hope my stories help make your day a bit more stupendous.
