Reading List

Keeping track of what I read encourages me to try new things (and makes recommending titles easier). Last year I read 101 new books (and re-read several others, and started a few that I didn't feel obligated to finish).

If you have suggestions about what I should read, please feel free to comment below. I particularly enjoy YA fiction, horror, mystery, bestsellers, and other "brain popcorn", but I'm also looking for titles (especially non-fiction!) that I wouldn't normally choose for myself. So let me know what you've read lately and enjoyed, and I'll see if I can fit it in!

*I started reading these fractional selections, but couldn't finish (or haven't yet). If I do finish one, it will get its own whole-numbered slot later in the list. If not, it will languish in the interstitial.

[These selections are re-reads that I completed in full. They don't count as new books.]

  2. I really enjoyed the Native Tongue trilogy http://www.amazon.com/Native-Tongue-Suzette-Haden-Elgin/dp/1558612467 I think you'd find the acquisition of language and linguistic covered in here as interesting as the sci-fi and feminism.

    1. That looks like something I could really sink my teeth into. I like Margaret Atwood's work, which Native Tongue is compared to. Added to the library list -- thanks!

  3. Anything by Sheri Tepper, but especially "The Gate to Women's Country". Also, "Into the Forest" by Jean Hegland. Plus one on the Native Tongue series, I really liked that.

    1. You introduced me to "The Gate to Women's Country" when we were working together -- I love it! Really liking "Native Tongue" so far (barely cracked the first one). Obviously I have sympatico folks to make recommendations. :)
