Sarah (from the Canaan trilogy) by Marek Halter
The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri
Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen (sort of muddled through and never finished)
For some reason, I just wasn't reading for months - I'd try, and just get bored of a book or put it down one day and not pick it up again. So I read a lot of magazines and blogs and news articles, but not books. When that happens, chick lit is usually the cure. I don't know why, but it gets me back into the swing of a book routine every time.
Fishbowl by Sarah Mlynowski
Norweigan Wood by Haruki Murakami
Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder - comfort reading for sad days
White Oleander by Janet Fitch (have been recommending this non-stop. Read it!)
Love in Idleness by Amanda Craig
The Book of Dead Birds by Gayle Brandeis
Such a Pretty Fat: One Narcissist's Quest To Discover if Her Life Makes Her Ass Look Big, Or Why Pie is Not The Answer by Jen Lancaster
Remember Me by Sophie Kinsella - oh chick lit, you make me happy
Marley & Me by John Grogan - I have the world's worst bunny. Bunnicula some call her. Others won't call her anything at all. But she and I have a great bond that exists despite her crazy tendencies. I should write a book about Charlie and Me. She's my first pet, everyone else is afraid of her, yet she's changed my life.
Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire -
still trying to read it and it's going very slowly. Gave up. Reading a book for fun should be fun.
The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold - beautifully written and thought-provoking. How easy is it really to let go?
