Top 5 rewind – books I don’t talk about enough
So, I suppose Shanah’s Top 5 this week is meant to highlight books that I love that I don’t feel like I talk about often enough. Obviously, I can’t put Ready Player One on this list, but I’ll give it my best shot!
The Art of Racing in the Rain
by Garth Stein
This is one my favorite books ever, but it just doesn’t seem to come up too often. The entire story is told from the perspective of the family dog! And yes, it’s just a hilarious and heart-warming as that makes it sound.
by Hugh Howey
This is a book I found kind of randomly. Originally, it was kind of serial made of 4 or 5 parts. Part 1 was free and after I read it, I absolutely had to read the rest. This was one of those books that helped me destroy a reading slump.
by Brandon Sanderson
To be fair, I just finished this book in December, so I haven’t had much opportunity to talk about it, but I have a feeling a will!
by Stephen King
I mainly talk about reading here, and even though this is a book, it’s a book about writing, so it doesn’t get a lot of attention. But it is easily one of the best books on the craft of writing that I’ve ever read. (It also has an interesting biographical look at King’s career.)
by Chuck Palahniuk
This book inspired me to write one of my own. Before reading it, I didn’t realize a book could have such a raw and deeply personal voice (I was extremely naive and not very well read at the time.)
