Whatcha Readin’ Wednesday Brings You Sarah Addison Allen

“My favorite books are the ones that make me smile for hours after reading them. I want that for my readers, for the sweetness to linger. Sort of like chocolate, but without the calories”
Sarah Addison Allen

Sarah Addison Allen is one of my favorite Southern writers. Her characters are strong, feminine and close knit. I love the small towns she creates, the wonderfully complex women she writes about and the beautiful mix of magic and reality she infuses in her world. There is nothing weak about her characters, yet they are soft and girly. Garden Spells is her first novel, but they are all equally beautiful, and don’t have to be read in order as they are not connected by anything but the town they are set in. Ms. Allen is also just as strong, if not stronger than the women she writes about.

Buy her books at your local bookstore (hopefully an independent one), or try them out at your local library. Hopefully you’ll fall in love with her books like I have.

Happy Reading!
