Caroline Bock-BEFORE MY EYES

Reading the New Year...

Starting off 2012 with eclectic reading selection...since December:
-Kill Switch (sharp new thriller by Neal Baer and Jonathan Greene)

-Daughter of Smoke and Bone (ya, fantasy with angels, first in trilogy, good, but leaves me yearning for Hunger Games)

-Lost Wife (holocaust-love story-haunting though not the best holocaust love story out there)

-What Alice Forgot (remember: unexpectedly entertaining and thought-provoking women's fiction, read with my book club -- go Paula!!)

-Meridian (black woman in the 60s, evocative by noted Alice Walker)

-The Half Finished Heaven by Tomas Transtromer (2011 Nobel prize winner, poetry, full of winter and strangeness)  "Truth doesn't need furniture."   

-2030 (first novel by Albert Brooks, not very funny look at near future)

-The Italians and the Holocaust (nonfiction, just starting, hoping not for nightmares)

-plus, several Curious George books with first grader, Sara!  (love that man in the yellow hat and his little monkey!!)

Last thought, am planning to re-read To Kill A Mockingbird since several people compare LIE, my debut novel, to this classic.  Any other classic suggestions??
