Call for suggestions!

My reading list is insanely long, but I find some books I added months (or even a year) ago don’t really catch my fancy anymore. The list below are books I’m considering reading soon, from reading reviews or the recommendations of friends. Please add any comments about the titles or suggestions for ones to add!

Zadie Smith, “On Beauty”
Jincy Willett, “Winner of the National Book Award”
Curtis Sittenfeld, “Prep”
Betty Friedan, “The Feminine Mystique”
Kevin Huizenga, “Curses”
Julian Barnes, “England, England”

    ‘Life of Pi’ by Yann Martel. It’s an easy read (sometimes found in Young Adult sections) but believe me, it’ll suck you in.
    Also, Dennis Lehane’s Mystic River. Especially if you haven’t seen the movie.
    Good luck and happy reading!

    hi grace. I suggest you fit in The Inheritance of Loss by Kiran Desai. A study of the plight of immigrants, in this case Indians, in New York and London. One of those epic human stories every immigrant to the West (or North) carries in their mind, you know, like the film Dirty Pretty Things, Naipaul’s A Bend in the River and Smith’s White Teeth, to name a few. It’s on my holiday wish list. Happy reading.
