Books To Read This Winter
The snow is falling, okay so not that much (yet!) I don’t know about you but I truly hate the winter, the bulky clothing (yuck) the cold weather (double yuck) the snow needing to be shoveled (did I mention yuck). I can’t stand the winter, the only thing I like about winter is…Christmas! Some of the top things on my wish list this year are books, there’s nothing better than settling down on a cold winter night with a cup of hot cocoa and a great book. So here is my list of the top 4 books to read this winter, enjoy!
#1. WIZARDS FIRST RULE
By: Terry Goodkind
This is by far one of my favorite reads of all time! This book tells of a place where magic still exists. There are dragons and witches and gars oh my! Wizards of light and dark magic, some more sinister then you will ever know. All you have to do is get through the boundary alive. I first read this book when I was a teenager and it captivated me even to this day. I have read this book so many times (at least 10 lol). Still, every time I read it, it makes me laugh as well as cry. It is just such an emotionally balanced, fascinating book.
#2. THE CHRYSALIDS
By: John Wyndham
A classic! A true coming of age tale. set in a post-apocalyptic Labrador. Eight friends set out on a journey to save mankind from themselves and their belief of what civilization “should be” in the eyes of God. That all things should only be in his true image and all else is blasphemy. First published in 1955 by Michael Joseph, The Chrysalids is hands down a book you need to read, if you haven’t already, you should do it this holiday season.
#3. SPLIT INFINITY-THE APPRENTICE ADEPT SERIES
By: Piers Anthony
Book one Split Infinity, the lush magical dimension of Phaze or the scientific barren dimension of Proton. this book takes place in two dimensions occupying the same space. both dimensions contain an alternate self of every person born on Phaze/Proton. but if either dimension is lacking a duplicate the remaining person is able to cross between dimensions through an energy curtain. A very entertaining start to a series. I found myself fully immersed in both dimensions so much so that I binge read almost back to back the rest of the series. such a well-written series that I would recommend it to anyone torn between science or magic, real or make believe now you can get the best of both worlds!
#4. INVITATION TO THE GAME
A great, easy reading, book. Set in the future, where robots dominate the work industry. High school students upon graduation are given either a job or the job of unemployed. The working class is taught to hate the unemployed and the unemployed are taught to fend for themselves. What seems like a dark and dreary existence for seven friends living off the social welfare system, with only illicit drugs to look forward to. Living in an unsafe neighborhood where crime is abundant, Lisse and her six friends decide to turn to karate for their own protection. Until one night a mysterious man named Charlie appears and their lives are forever changed. An Invitation to the game turns their whole world upside down. I cannot put this book down every time I read it, such a great adventure for any age!
