These are great! Thanks so much for posting. I'm at uni right now which means no fun reading or other activities whatsoever but once I'm out mmmboy, I'll be returning to this post. Some books I love: Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami and The Beauty Myth by Naomi Wolf. Drastically different books/genres but both great reads.
i've read sarah's key. man i gotta catch up. i like anything by mj hyland, specifially, how the light gets in.and time traveler's wife was an excellent read.
A few that I've just read and liked areParis To Die For by Maxine Kenneth, I've Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella(cute and funny!) and my favorite book ever, And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie. Enjoy your reads, ladies!
oh, you must read "ella minnow pea" by mark dunn. it's such a fun lovely book about the people of the fictional island of nollop (named after the man who created the pangram "the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog"). it'll have you reading aloud by the end!also, do try "the night circus" by erin morgenstern. i thought this, too, was a wonderful read.
So many great reads! I've got to add a couple of these to my list. And yes to Bossy Pants. I got a free download of the audio version which Tina Fey narrates herself, and it is beyond hilarious.Meganhttp://thedarlingewe.blogspot.com/
I'm waiting for a book from USA, and I did not finish yet another that I have now in my bedroom, I like read a little bit, but this year is one of my goals, read a lot.
i love 'j-pod' and the 'history of love'! one of my favs would be 'the book thief' by markus zusak. actually his other book 'i am the messenger' is also really amazing :-)
My favorite book of all time is Oh My Stars by Lorna Landvik. Amazing!!
A lot of my favorites are on here. :)
Some books I've liked lately are: "Coop," "The Invisible Ones," and "This Life is in Your Hands."
History of Love is so good! I've never really found something that perfectly matched it. I haven't read Middlesex, but I'm reading The Marriage Plot right now by the same author and I like it a lot.
I loved Middlesex! I own the Wally Lamb book, but I haven't read it yet. I have heard of most of these, but not read any of them besides the two I mentioned. I'll have to go put these on my to-read list!
I remember loving 'The Flying Troutmans', and any Wally Lamb is good - especially 'She's Come Undone' (albeit, a little blue)... :)
Middlesex is a brilliant book as is The Virgin Suicides by the same author. Fav reads: The Secret History by Donna Tart and pretty much anything by Margaret Atwood :)
One of my favorite beach reads is "Tales from Margaritaville" by Jimmy Buffett. And I love almost anything by Ernest Hemingway. I am more of a magazine person, though - love them. Probably why I like the Buffett book as it is more of compilation of short stories!
Great reads!! You two should read A Vintage Affair by Isabel Wolff. It's a really fast read and the main character owns a vintage shop. Perfect! ;)http://www.amazon.com/Vintage-Affair-Novel-Isabel-Wolff/dp/0553807838
The Wanting Seed by Anthony Burgess is my absolute fave! I really want to read Invisible Monsters. ♥ séciahttp://www.petiteinsanities.com/
ah, thank you for reminding me i still need to read bossypants & invisible monster!!
David Mitchell is an amazing writer...try Black Swan Green or Cloud Atlas. Also, I just read Jon Ronson's The Psychopath Test, which was an interesting/fun non-fiction read.J.D. Salinger's Nine Stories is always a good one to revisit.Nick Hornby's short story compilation Speaking with the Angel has some of my favorites in it too.
Haven't read any of these so thanks for the suggestions! The Help is a fantastic read - just finished it and completely loved it!
Please if you haven't already, read How We Are Hungry by Dave Eggers, The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chobosky, Farenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton, I'll stop here or we'll be here for hours :)
