I love hearing about the books that people read and what they like to recommend to me (whether it’s because I’ve snooped their bookshelves, because they’ve been saving books for us to trade back and forth, or because they were looking to unload one of their bookshelves).
I’ve been feeling like I’ve been in a little bit of a reading rut lately, so I decided for my fall reading list I would let one of my fellow book-ish friends dictate what I read. I asked my friend and photographer for the blog, D, to pick out things that were unusual, shocking or out of character for me. And of course when I heard that I hadn’t read one of his personal favorites (Watership Down by Richard Adams) he was shocked and disappointed, and demanded that I read it, like, yesterday.
Here are the other books he chose:
- Automated Alice by Jeff Noon
- Blindness by José Saramago
- The Clothes They Stood Up In by Alan Bennett
- Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick
What are some of the books that you’ve read at other people’s suggestion?
I love to read and I love sharing my favourite books with you. (For more reading inspiration, click here.) These lists are totally my own creation and I was not paid or perked to share my opinions with you by any author or publishing company. Full disclosure: I do receive a small commission from Amazon when you choose to buy a book from my site. It keeps this blog running and food in my dog’s bowl, but rest assured I’d never suggest you buy something I wouldn’t buy for myself. Enjoy!
