What should we read?

By Robin Dearing

Loyal Haute Mama reader Julie suggested that books made great gifts. I agree. I get Margaret books for Christmas every year. 

Mar reads a lot of James Patterson. She loves thrillers and action plots. When I was Mar's age, I read a bunch of crap. Like those Sweet Valley High pulp novels.

I'll still read crap from time to time (nothing like brain fluff now and again). But I'm always on the look out for great reads for me and for Margaret.

What was your favorite book when you were 12? What's your favorite book now? What book should I get Margaret for Christmas? What book should I get for myself?

At 12 y.o. Nancy Drew….of course ! ...for you Robin I would say Dean Koontz Odd Thomas series (make sure you read them in sequence) or his Christopher Snow books #1 Fear Nothing and #2 Seize the Night.

I loved powering through series at that age: Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys, Trixie Belden, the Ingalls. My favorite was the Little Women series. Their stories had a big impact on me and were a gateway to more serious fiction. I recently read “The Bloodletter’s Daughter,” an intense,  historical fiction work set in 17th century Czech Republic by Aspen author Linda Lafferty. It was a nail-biter. I followed that with “Bossypants” by Tina Fey. Can’t believe it took me so long to get around to that book. She’s as funny in print as she is in sketch TV.
