Some friendly recommendations

28 Oct

For no other purpose than if I don’t post them I’m likely to forget them…here is a first round of recommendations from my friend and fellow book junkie Robin:

  • Her Fearful Symmetry – Audrey Niffenegger
  • Anything by Ann Patchett, but particularly The Magician’s Assistant, Bel Canto and Truth & Beauty (memoir)
  • Hypocrite in a Poufy White Dress – Susan Jane Gilman (memoir)
  • Driving with Dead People – Monica Holloway (memoir)
  • How to Be Good – Nick Hornby
  • High Fidelity – Nick Hornby
  • Little Children – Tom Perotta
  • Election – Tom Perotta
  • How to Be Lost – Amanda Eyre Ward
  • Sleep Towards Heaven – Amanda Eyre Ward
  • Bury Me Deep – Megan Abbot
  • The Sookie Stackhouse Novels – Charlaine Harris (Dead Until Dark, Living Dead in Dallas, Club Dead, Dead to the World, Dead as a Doornail, Definitely Dead, All Together Dead, From Dead to Worse, Dead and Gone and A Touch of Dead)

    I have more for you. Just need to get my wits about me and get them typed in. I would love to say I will do the 100-book challenge, but even in my best year, when I was doing the chemo thing and spent a lot of time lying around on my duff, I only knocked off almost 60. I could shoot for 50 this year…that's double my usual rate.

    You do it as a "half challenge," or as Becky puts it, "kind of like a half marathon."
