“If you read … you’ll like …”
When you’ve read a book, do you sometimes find yourself thinking “oh, that really reminds me of *insert name of another book*”?
Welcome to a new feature, in which my team and I make reading suggestions based on your favourites, be they classics, or newer best sellers. Our recommendations consider not just genre, but writing style, plot—and that ‘feel’ you can’t quite put your finger on.
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is a classic children’s book, film and musical. Most readers will know something about the tale and the characters.
Heather Kindt has put together a romantic comedy and modern-day version of the story. The main character is still called Dorothy Gale, but is now often known as Dottie. The delight, for me, when reading this book, was spotting all the obvious, and sometimes almost hidden, parallel teasers.
Our modern Dottie is a teacher in a small town in Kansas, she might not own a dog, but her favourite band it Toto! While driving to a teacher’s conference, Dottie is asked to pick up a couple of other teachers; Mr Fields and Mr Lyons but what about a Tin Man?
If you want a little fun in your reading then check out Dottie and see just what happened when a tornado blew through the small town of Quandary, Kansas
