Leddy Library Good Reads

Some ‘newer’ good reads

  • The Fault in Our Stars – John Green
    "I liked reading John Green’s novels for two reasons – 1. Even if they are geared towards a younger demographic, people of all ages will relate to his stories and 2. He doesn’t dumb down the teenage experience and gives teens a wonderful narrative voice."
     
  • Outlander – Diana Gabaldon
    "This is a brilliant series, so you have to start with how it all began for Claire and Jamie. This was my favourite book of the series as well."
     
  • The Book of Negroes – Lawrence Hill
  • The Illegal – Lawrence Hill

Although it’s fiction, “The Illegal” is a poignant book for our modern times, by providing the reader with a look into one refugee’s struggle to make the best life that he can for himself."
