Feature & Follow - Book Recommendations (March 7, 2014).

Feature and Follow is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  Click on the links to visit their blogs and find out more about this great meme.

This week's question:  Recommend some of your favorite back-list books - books that are at least a few years old.  (5-10 years old rather than classics.)

Isn't this what bloggers and reading fanatics love to do?  Recommend books.

1. Swan Song by Robert McCammon.  This is one of my favorite books.  Probably in my top 5.  Post Apocalyptic before it was cool, part horror, part fantasy.

2. Anything by Charles De Lint, the true father of Urban Fantasy.  The Fey world before it was cool.  Beautiful, dreamlike stories.  Start with his Newford short story to get a taste and then read his whole smorgasbord of novels.

3. The Silver Bough by Lisa Tuttle.  A gorgeous book about mythology in Scotland leaking into the world.

4. The Talisman by Stephen King and Peter Straub.  Check out this treasure from two literary icons.

5. Solstice Wood by Patricia McKillip.  If you've never read this author, you are missing out.  I put this one on the list because I feel it is her easiest to read as it is set in contemporary times.

This is just a tiny tast of what I recommend.  Feel free to check out more books I've read on my Goodreads page.

Hopping through. Wow, I haven't heard of any of those, even the Stephen King book. I need to branch out.

I'm glad that my favourite author Stephen King is featuring quite heavily on this FF today, but you know what, I haven't read The Talisman. Unbelievable!, goes on my 'to buy' list straight away. I'm a new follower :)
