We'll Help You Escape

This week we've seen rain, sun, hail, wind, thunder and lightning. When the weather gets crazy, there is nothing I love more than picking up a novel and reading about characters who live in or travel to foreign countries. Here are some books that have recently helped me escape:

Upside Down, Inside Out (Australia)

DMZ (Colombia)

Chateau of Echoes (France)

The Accidental Mother (England)

Moon Over Tokyo

Here are two series I highly recommend because their fast pace kept me hooked from the very beginning.

The Russian Trilogy by Hynd, Noel, with books set in Kiev, Madrid and Cairo

Task Force Valor Series by Holton, Chuck, with books that take place in the Middle East, Panama and Chernobyl

If you don’t know what to read and need some inspiration, check out our Recommended Reads under the “Books, Movies, Music” section of our website. There are many different categories of fiction and non-fiction, ranging from cozy mysteries to green living, from time travel fiction to family finance.

Sno-Isle also subscribes to a fantastic database called NoveList Plus. Select “Databases and Research” on our home page, choose “Books and Literature” under subjects, and then click on NoveList Plus. You will find a big selection of author read-alikes, so if you’re in the mood to read something similar to Dick Frances, for example, see what they suggest. You can also find books by category for children, teens and adults.

And as always, we are happy to help you find something to read! Please don’t hesitate to ask!
