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??
