Winter Break Reading

December 26, 2009 Leave a comment

Books read over Winter 2009 break, quick thoughts. Full reviews to follow possibly

K denotes books read on the Kindle

1. East of the Sun by Julia Gregson (K): the first half was really interesting, but it was a bit too long; too many storylines packed into one book.

2. Up in the Air by Walter Kirn: funny, but I finished the book not really having a clear idea what exactly had happened.

3. Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri: beautiful. I liked Unaccustomed Earth better, but the stories here were less sad.

4. Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins.

5. Dear John by Nicholas Sparks. ugh.

In Process:

1. Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norell: brilliant so far, but it’s quite large.
