New month, new author – this month’s Read Alike is: Neil Gaiman!
I have not read anything by Neil Gaiman, although he has been on my “to read” list for a long time, so I am especially happy to have the extra push to read one of his books. Gaiman is quite popular, with an avid following but his books are far from mainstream – they’re a mix of myth, magical realism and fantasy. Now is the perfect time to try one of his popular titles such as American Gods, Norse Mythology, Neverwhere or Good Omens or his graphic novel series The Sandman.
Or try a book with a bit of the unexplainable. Here are some to consider.
The Magicians by Lev Grossman
Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke
The Color of Magic by Terry Prachett
Storm Front by Jim Butcher
The Infernals by John Connolly
Some Kind of Fairy Tale by Graham Joyce
The Wind Through the Keyhole by Stephen King
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
The White Forest by Adam McOmber
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker
Lots of mysterious circumstances and hidden secrets to choose from! Clicking on any of the titles will take you to our catalog and a brief description of the book.
I am planning on reading The Ocean at the End of the Lane which might be a bit scarier than I generally prefer. Hmmmm. I’ll let you know how it goes!
What about you? What will you be reading this month?
