List Making Continues: Reading For 2016

Greed is good — that’s my reading motto. I want them all!

In 2016 I intend to revisit Virginia Woolf’s work, particularly one piece I never got to read, Orlando. A Room of One’s Own is a snippet that I adore reading over and over, so I’ll do that again as well.

Throughout the year, t.s. wright has given us many suggestions on terrific sci-fi and hybrid fictions. I’m going to get a long list from all those goodies, including The Name of the Wind, by Patrick Rothfuss.

… maybe we could read as a group and compare notes …?

According one of the many 2015 Best Seller Lists, I should also seek out All the Light We Cannot See, by Anthony Doerr, The Girl on the Train, by Paula Hawkins, and The Goldfinch, by Donna Tartt. Alrighty then.

What titles and authors would you suggest? I adore essay, creative nonfiction, poetry … well. Pretty much everything. Gimme some.

  1. Here is a link to women writers the writer of this article thinks we don’t know about. Their works (especially Julian of Norwich and Margery Kempe) can be found online. They might be something different to read.

    I would be curious to see what someone else thinks of “The Watchmaker of Filigree Street,” by Natasha Pulley. http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/22929563-the-watchmaker-of-filigree-street?from_search=true&search_version=service

    So what’s up for the ‘Flame in 2016? We appear to be on hiatus over on LJ.
