  1. Another Cate Says:

    I read Lavinia – didn’t much like it. Loved “Immortal” though. I triple loved “The House of the Scorpion” – definitely makes me want to look up more by Nancy Farmer. “Running With Scissors” was great – the book a lot more than the movie, although I thought they casted the movie very, very well, but it made me really sad – mostly because I think it was true.

    Thanks so much for posting your list, Lucca. I have enjoyed everything you’ve recommended so far, so I’ll be checking out the rest on your list. I hope you’ll review more soon!

  2. Lucca Says:

    Cate, if you like Nancy Farmer, I definitely think you should read The Ear, The Eye, and The Arm by her as well. This is the book that got me into her, it’s incredible. Running With Scissors is definitely true, I’ve met him and he is CRAZY! But you should read the rest of his memoirs, Dry is next but I’m warning you, it’s VERY dark. (Since it’s about his battle with alcoholism). But it’s worth it, the next two memoirs after Dry are amazing, you get to see what happens after AA, which is something you don’t hear much about. If anything is ‘redemptive’ it’s this series of memoirs.
