I am reading Karen Joy Fowler's We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves, because Barbara Kerley from my writing group was so enthusiastic about it.
I have been reading it in bits and bites (literally five minutes here and ten minutes there), and I think I really should be reading it in longer chunks. Today I had to re-read ten pages I had already read when I was too tired to fully take them in, but it's so well written that I didn't mind. For example:
"The sun was down, but the horizon was still a scarlet slash. Crows were rioting in the trees."
I wish I could write like that.
My two favorite books from 2013 were Kate Atkinson's Life After Life and Donna Tartt's The Goldfinch.
I have several books waiting in my TBR pile: Cold Calls by Charles Benoit, Panic by Lauren Olivier, and The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion.
Do you have any books you would recommend?
