Early I wrote this post with books I intended to read this summer. I wanted to give an update on some of these, so here it is.
Haven’t Read Yet – No Report
Bark by Lorrie Moore
Cementville by Paulette Livers
Cat’s Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut
Going To Skip
Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver – If you are a middle aged female biologist who loves romance novels, this is for you, if not, I’d skip it. Mike read the first 30 pages or so and gave me a summary, not worth the read.
Read From List
East of Eden – Very long, but very good. Give it 50 pages before the story line really picks up.
How Did You Get This Number – Pretty funny. Kinda of a downer at parts. Main character/author isn’t the most put together person in the world.
And The Mountains Echoed – Great story. Tons of characters to keep straight.
Read And Not On List
Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro – About a child at a private school in England. A coming of age story. Except there is a bunch of weird stuff going on and it’s science fiction.
Black Moon by Kenneth Calhoun – Another sci-fi (not typical for me). Insomnia is claiming the lives of the entire population. Very creepy, but a page turner. It took me a couple days to read.
Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison
The Sci-fi ones were fun, but read East of Eden. It’s probably been my favorite.
