Fall 2014 Reading List

porchSince my morning commute (and, let’s face it, shower time most days) has been replaced by Reading on the Porch Time, I can post my fall reading list without the guilt of knowing I won’t get around to reading 1/2 of them. I am devouring ALL THE BOOKS!! Some new releases, some haven’t-gotten-around-to-them yet…

Fall Reading List

Doll Palace, Sara Lippmann
The Emerald Light in the Air, Donald Antrim
The Sleepwalker’s Guide to Dancing, Mira Jacob
The Snow Queen, Michael Cunningham
Wave, Sonali Deraniyagala
A Girl Is a Half-Formed Thing, Eimear McBride
Boy, Snow, Bird, Helen Oyeyemi
Bad Feminist, Roxanne Gay
Walking With the Comrades, Arundhati Roy
Americanah, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Worst Person Ever, Douglas Coupland
This Is How You Lose Her, Junot Diaz
The rest of Mo Hayder‘s books because I am addicted to this crime writing Brit, especially the books which feature Flea Marley (always a sucker for a strong female lead)

And in the recently finished, highly recommended category:

Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage, Haruki Murakami (less mystical sheep and disappearing cats, more interpersonal relationships and dealing with unexplained past events; just don’t expect an ending that is actually an ending)
The Lowland, Jhumpa Lahiri (in my opinion, slow start, but well worth continuing; I admire her for being able to carry stories through multiple decades/generations)
The Men We Reaped, Jesmyn Ward (just wow. especially relevant in light of ferguson, and, well, everything.)
