SPN: Sam Book

Recs: Fiction, Original Slash

jeeronie asked for some book recs that had happy endings, or that were hopeful stories, so here are some I like:

  • The Tale of the Despereaux by Kate Dicamillo

  • Two Parties, One Tux, and a Very Short Film about The Grapes of Wrath by Steven Goldman

  • Plan B by Anne Lamott and also Grave(Eventually) by Anne Lamott

  • Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons by Lorna Landvik

  • The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

  • Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life by Amy Krouse Rosenthal

    Rereading jeeronie's original message, I'm suddenly realizing that she might have been looking for Original Slash, which is not what I've linked above AT ALL. Whoops. Here are a couple of those:

  • Sex, Lies & Wedding Bells by EM Lynley

  • Faith & Fidelity by Tere Michaels

  • Diving in Deep by KA Mitchell and also Collision Course by KA Mitchell

  • The Deviations series by Chris Owen and Jodi Payne (There are four, that just links to the first one.)

    If you have any other recs in that area, link 'em!

    Quote of the Day

    "I read and walked for miles at night along the beach, writing bad blank verse and searching endlessly for someone wonderful who would step out of the darkness and change my life. It never crossed my mind that that person could be me."
    --Anna Quindlen
