I’ve just started reading The Innocents by Francesca Segal, which is a modern adaptation of Edith Wharton’s The Age of Innocence. I became quickly engrossed by the characters in this Jewish community in London, so it’s off to a good start.
I also came across this nifty website called “What Should I Read Next?” You just plug in one of your favorite books, and it gives you a list of similar reads. For example, typing in The Lord of the Rings will offer books by C.S. Lewis, T.H. White, and Douglas Adams. Some picks were on the odder side, including Dr. Seuss and Homer, but for the most part, I think it’s a cool tool.
I had to laugh though, because when I typed The Innocents, I got J.K. Rowling’s Quidditch Through the Ages as a recommendation! I highly doubt that there’s a connection between these two stories, but I guess we’ll see!
So test this site out, and let me know your results! Was it a hit or miss?
