I’ve been in a bit of a reading rut lately. It’s not that I’ve been reading bad book after bad book, more like nothing amazing has been grabbing me lately, nothing that I want to shout to the world about and beg everyone to read. My Jen’s Favorites shelves on Goodreads has been mysteriously lacking in 2012 reads.
Inspired by Janssen’s Tell Me What to Read series, I figured I’d ask YOU what I should pick up next. I have a few choices in mind that have been lingering in my stacks, but feel free to offer other choices, too. What am I going to love, what am I not going to want to put down?
So far my options are:
Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
I bought this years ago. Most everyone I know seems to rave about it, and it’s a Printz Winner. I just haven’t got around to it, no matter how many times I’ve picked it up for consideration.
Perfect Escape by Jennifer Brown
Jennifer Brown is one of my favorite authors and I just got this one a few weeks ago. I’ve heard good things.
11/23/63 by Stephen King
Except for On Writing, I’ve actually never read a Stephen King book. But this one has time travel (my favorite), and my husband loved it. I bought this one a few months after it came out, but keep getting intimidated by the size.
Any other suggestions?
