Other book recommendations
These are all books that I have read and enjoyed. It’s possible that my reading interests are different from yours. That’s okay!
These are not in a specific order:
1. “1984” by George Orwell: A classic story about live during a time when the government watches everything that everyone does. I’ve read this several times, both in English and French.
2. “Watership Down” by Richard Adams: Imagine “The Hobbit” but with rabbits instead. It’s an amazing adventure of a group of rabbits who are searching for a new home. They find different societies of rabbits and learn about life. It’s a book for adults.
3. “The Fault in Our Stars” by John Green: This touching book is about two teenagers who are dying from cancer. As you can imagine, it’s sad, but it’s also funny and touching at the same time.
4. “A Wrinkle in Time” by Madeleine L’Engle: In this book, you follow two children throughout the galaxy as they search for their father. You’ll go to worlds where people think quite differently from earth. It’s fascinating!
5. “The Poisonwood Bible” by Barbara Kingsolver: This was my favorite book in high school. It’s about a Christian missionary family who go to Africa, but the father has wrong ideas about how to talk with the native people. Each chapter is written by one of the 4 daughters and the mother. I love that writing style.
6. “Pillars of the Earth” by Ken Follett: This is one of my top 3 books. Yes, it’s really long, but the writing style isn’t very complex. It’s about the building of a cathedral in medieval England and main characters who you will love and also hate. Whenever a friend asks for a book recommendation, I always recommend this one.
