Sometimes I am slow to get on a bandwagon, other times I’m ahead of the game. I’ve read many lists about the best books of 2012, books that have been read in 2012, worst books of 2012, etc. , so I thought I’d do a version. Options for my list included a list of books I used to even out my coffee table this year, or the above decided upon title.
NW – Zadie Smith: I checked it out from the library I had it on my desk. I never got to it. I heard it was great.
Wild-Cheryl Strayed: Except for the hiking alone, the drugs, the stranger-danger intimacy, snakes, bears, divorce, I’ve been through that kind of feeling. Losing a parent is hard.
This Is How You Lose Her-Junot Diaz: I want to read it, I really do. Maybe it will be a good snow day read.
The Hunger Games Trilogy-Suzanne Collins: I want to read them and then watch the movie. I hear they are good. Someday, when I’m hungry, maybe? (Ha! I made a pun-ny.)
The Casual Vacancy-JK Rowling: This book has had a casual vacancy at my library. I guess that means people like it. It sounds like a nice, fun, political subtext read.
Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die-Willie Nelson: I like the title, I like Willie; I think I’ll leave it on that positive note.
Most any popular book that other people are reading: I can’t help it, I’m a rebel. Reading is breathing, thinking and living, but sometimes you just gotta do it your own way.
Come back to see a few books I have read in my next blog.
