Recommend A... meme

…Book You Read on Vacation

Recommend A… is a SUPER meme hosted by Shanyn from Chick Loves Lit that lets us get a little random, and a little off the radar. I LOVE IT.

This is actually hard because I haven’t been on a vacation in, oh, several years. I KNOW. But it’s true. Unless you count weekend trips to Virginia to visit family, which is hard to do because, well, a weekend with family doesn’t usually leave lots of time for reading. So, I’m going to keep it short and sweet this week and recommend not only one my favorite books that I’ve read this year–or possibly ever–and one of the books I read on one of my most recent “vacations.”

Book cover for Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson

Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson

Friends, this book–a Peter Pan prequel/retelling from the point of view of Tiger Lily–is flat-out amazing. Seriously. I’ve always loved the Peter Pan story, but the one that we are familiar with is so different from the one Jodi Lynn Anderson tells in TIGER LILY. I called it a prequel earlier because it really does take place before the timeline of the story most people know. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t heartbreaking and beautiful and basically outstanding. Read this one. At home, on vacation, in the car, wherever.

    I have heard of this book, but I didn’t realise it was a Peter Pan prequel! I must read it.
