Books We LOVE Part 2

Here are some more books we LOVE.

Jennifer Mattox, our Development Director,
LOVES "Pride & Prejudice. Long novels, like The Witching Hour, are also something I LOVE---they give you a chance to really spend some time with the characters and understand what drives them."


VISTA member and CCLL tutoring coordinator, Fatimah Shalash, finds is difficult to choose. "Hmm this is a tough one for me because I change favorite books all the time! Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card, though it’s been a while. The First Harry Potter (J.K. Rowling), and The Giver by Lois Lowry."


I personally have a lot of books that I LOVE! But, I do have a new favorite. I just finished The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon. Definitely check it out!


Happy Reading!

Ender's Game is always and forever in my top five of all time. And if you continue to read on about Ender with the rest of the books in the series, you will find yourself questioning life's purpose and where we're headed as a species.

The Witching Hour is one I'd forgotten but is, in my opinion, Anne's best.

Since you picked those two, I'm now intrigued about The Curious Incident...I had noted it at Joseph Beth but passed it by. Once I get done reading The Elegance of the Hedgehog, I may just pick it up!

Thank you!
