Musing Mondays (September 27)

 Musing Mondays is hosted by Miz B in Should be Reading.

The musing this week asks about book suggestions.

If your book group asked you to bring two (2) suggestions for group reads to your next meeting, what two books would you suggest? Why?

I don't have a book group as of the moment (and I would love to belong in one) but if I were to suggest two books it will be the following:

1. The Gift of Acabar - Og Mandino (with Buddy Kaye)
This is a bittersweet story by the late Og Mandino on family, loss and letting go. It'd be nice to know if others would tear up like I did while reading the book. There's a Credenda in the book that's one of my favorite poems, if I may call it as such. It's kind of like Desiderata in format. Touches my heart everytime I read it.

2. Juliet - Anne Fortier
I'm still currently in page 88 so far. I saw a lot of blog posts on this book thus I decided to buy it. I'm not disappointed so far. The mystery is keeping me on my toes and yet I can't seem to breeze through the book. Time is my enemy! I would want to know if other readers will have the same reaction like I did that's why I chose this one. The book cover is also gorgeous by the way.

Juliet The Gift Of Acabar

I have been noticing Juliet (with that cover, it totally captures attention!), and I'm really thinking about reading it.

Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

I have Juliet on my reading list. I really need to pick it up soon.

I have never read either of them. I have heard of Juliet though...it will be interesting to see what kind of topics of discussion would come from it. Here is my Musing For Monday
