this weekend…

We’ll be here. By ourselves. Without Dashie. For the first time ever.

NBD.

Considering I blew through all three Hunger Games books last week, I’m in desperate need of a new read. Any suggestions (preferably slightly more adult) would be much appreciated this morning.

    I just finished The Instructions by Adam Levin. It was awesome…you should check it out.

    My all time favourite is Like Water For Chocolate, by Laura Esquivel. Have read it a few times. At the moment reading The Lovely Bones, by Alice Sebold. She’s a great writer, but it’s very intense. I may have to tackle The Hunger Games next. Have a great holiday! Really enjoy reading your blog :)

    Getaways are great for the soul! I’m reading ‘Trail of Crumbs’ by Kim Sunee, one of the better books I’ve read lately!

    unaccustomed earth by jhumpa lahiri was beautiful.

    50 shades of gray is supposed to be the hot new book. Apparently VERY adult. :)

    Ooo, have fun! Latest fave is Rules of Civility, has a Gatsby-espe feel but the main character is a woman. Definitely takes you back to the 30s in Manhattan!

    Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro is one of my all time favorites. I also really enjoyed Room by Emma Donahue (I think I spelled her last name incorrectly) last year. Have fun!

    Loved:
    - Welcome to the Goon Squad
    - Heat by Bill Buford (fun, makes you want to cook pasta and go to Italy
    - Lonsesome Dove is an old favorite of mine…I don’t love westerns but this is such a good vacation read….sweeping saga, easy to read and fantastic characters.

    The Wheel of Times series. There is absolutely no way you can blow through that. Robert Jordan is a man after Tolkien’s own heart.

    American Wife
    The Lone Survivor
    Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
    Ender’s Game
    The Help if you haven’t read it
    The Glass Castle

    Thanks for all the recs, guys! I’ve read a bunch of the books you suggested and agree that they are great. I ended up with An Everlasting Meal and the new/unfinished David Foster Wallace – The Pale King. But honestly, I didn’t do as much reading as I thought I would. Lots of napping in the sun and things.

    Am keeping this list for my next book purchases.

    this looks FABULOUS! cant wait to hear about it!!

  16. Hope said on April 24, 2012

    I know you’ve been and are back but a book I cannot recommend highly enough: Gossip by Beth Gutcheon. I wish I could go back and re-read it a 1,000 times, each time anew. Hope you had fun!

  17. Rossana said on April 24, 2012

    I suggest the Fifty Shades of Grey books. Very readable!

  18. Emma Taylor said on April 25, 2012

    I absolutely loved When God Was A Rabbit, it’s a beautiful book. I know you’ve already been away but add it to your list!

    Fifty Shades of Grey…. soooo good. Totally naughty and wonderful in every way ;)

    Pick up The Language of Flowers… a beautiful read.
