I've always been a big reader. When I was a kid, I would spend my summers trekking to my local library and devouring as many Baby Sitters' Club and Lucy Maud Montgomery books as I could. My love of books and reading led me to study English Literature at university. I still keep lists of all the books I read each year -- a habit I started when I was about 10 that gives me a perverse sense of nerdy satisfaction.
So, in the spirit of book-loving and list-making, I thought I'd share what I've been reading lately. First up -- a few that I've just finished and enjoyed.
The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
Death Comes to Pemberley by P.D. James
As Always, Julia - The letters of Julia Child and Avis DeVoto
And here's a few books that are on my to-read list.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Loving Frank by Nancy Horan
Fallingwater in Pittsburgh last fall, I've been a little obsessed with Frank Lloyd Wright. This book is a fictional account of his real-life affair with a married woman. I've heard nothing but good things.
The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides
Have you read and good books lately, dear readers? Have you read any of these? Any more recommendations for me?
