I’ve read tons of non-fiction this year. Mostly research for my novel. I want to read more fiction in 2011.
Here’s what is on my list right now:
- Shadow’s Son by Jon Sprunk
- The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Díaz
- The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi
I finished The Angel’s Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafón last month. Yes, during NaNoWriMo. Loved it. Don’t know why it got negative reviews. I love Zafón’s writing style; the way he makes you see the emotions on his character’s faces and smell the world he creates. And I love all the quirky jokes. He’s my kind of writer. I wonder if he would read my book…
Anyway, I know the list is short. I plan on adding more as I think of ’em. Will keep track of them over on GoodReads. That reminds me…got to go update my profile…
Enjoy the holidays and happy winter solstice!
Until next year, keep on writing and reading. 🙂
