Thank you thank you thank you to all of you who suggested books last week!! I freaking love the fact that you guys are so well read, and your tastes span a diverse field. I am incredibly lucky. In case you wanted to follow along on my current reading journey, here is the list of books I chose – 100% from your suggestions. If I didn’t pick one that you suggested, it’s not because you suck, it’s because there were SO MANY and I could only pick about 13-15 (and I already have 3 Atwood books sitting on my coffee table). I’m reading about 1-2 books a week right now, so I should get through this list in a few months. When I’m done with this batch I’ll be writing up some reviews and then asking for more recommendations, so if you find a book you love, make a note! I’ll want to hear all about it. But for now, the list….
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
Gold Bug Variations by Richard Powers
American Gods by Neil Gaiman
What is the What by Dave Eggers
Sum by David Eaglemen
Before You Suffocate Your Own Fool Self by Danielle Evans
A Visit From the Goon Squad by Jennifer Eagen
Bel Canto by Ann Patchett
The Witch of Portobello by Paulo Coelho
The Enchantress of Florence by Salman Rushdie
Watership Down by Richard Adams
A Secret History by Donna Tartt
America Pacifica by Anna North
*Some of these I’m getting on the Kindle for all of my upcoming travels, but the majority I’m getting in real-life book form. Hooray reading!!! I really hope that some of you pick up a book from this list so when I write the reviews we can all talk about it (that’s like… the second best part of reading)!
*Also – I’m reading in no particular order. Just in case you were curious. 🙂
