Good Omens – 31 Days of Great Books – Book 1

standard October 1, 2013 Leave a response

It’s no secret that books are my thing. I love them. Live them. Breathe them. Heck, I even write them. I grew up in a world where bookcases were the most important piece of furniture in the house, and I still abide by the truism that books are what makes a house a home.

October is National Book Month and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to honor my favorite things.

So, here’s what we’re doing.

Every day for the month of October I’ll share with you a book that I’ve loved. Women’s fiction, fantasy, kid’s book, YA… it’s all coming your way. Some will be “old,” some new, and I hope that along the way you’ll find something you can’t wait to sink your teeth into!

Book 1 
Good Omens, by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman

Some books you read once and you’ve forgotten it before you even put it on the shelf. Some books you re-read again and again and feel nothing but delight each and every time. For me, this is one of those books.

It’s funny, it’s well written, it’ll keep you engaged from beginning to end, and it’ll leave you with these little snippets that will cause you to giggle long after you’re done reading it.

Read it if: You enjoy whimsical books with some supernatural elements and you enjoy giggling out loud as you read. Read this in public at your own risk.

Would it make a good book club book? Not really unless your crew likes a little supernatural fun. It does cover some classic “quest” themes and, in a really irreverent way, the Apocalypse, but it’s not the kind of book that will lead to impassioned conversations.
