What books would you suggest for waiting out a hurricane?
This question prompted quite a list of suggestions, a TBR (to be read) list that no one can conquer in a lifetime.
Here's my list in no particular order:
Faith Hunter: Jane Yellowrock series and Soulwood series
Shannon Mayer: Rylee Adamson series and Elementals series
CE Murphy: The Walker Papers series and The Worldwalker Duology
Patricia McKillip: anything
DB Jackson/David Coe: Anything
Anne Bishop: The Others series
Gail Carriger: anything
Barbara Claypole White: anything
Donna Gillespie, The Lightbearer (my favorite, all-time book), historical fiction
Donna Andrews: Meg Lanslow Mysteries
Barbara Kingsolver: The Poisonwood Bible
Sue Monk Kidd: The Mermaid Chair and The Secret Life of Bees
Sarah Addison Allen: anything (this falls in the fiction categories but probably fits magical realism better)
Rita Mae Brown: Mrs. Murphy Mysteries
Fiona Buckley: Ursula Blanchard Mysteries set in Elizabeth I's court
Pamela Kaufman: The Book of Eleanor: A Novel of Eleanor of Aquitaine
Anne Barnhill: Queen Elizabeth's Daughter: A Novel of of Elizabeth I
J K Rowling: Harry Potter
C S Lewis: The Chronicles of Narnia
E B White: Charlotte's Web
Frances Hodgson Burnett: The Secret Garden
Rick Riordan: Percy Jackson and the Olympian Series
A. A. Milne: Winnie the Pooh
Hurricane season doesn't end until November 30, so, as much as I hate to consider this, it's far from over.
The list above is a drop in the bucket of what I would recommend. What about you? Please add your recommendations in the comments but do not plug your own books. This isn't about marketing yourself.
