I Need Some Book Suggestions. Got One?

I’m almost done with The Wind-Up Bird Chronicles by Haruki Murakami, which I love and recommend to everyone ready for some heavy duty reading. In a matter of a day or two, I will be without extracurricular reading material. This is bad because I spend all day reading Internet stuff, comment sections included, and that can make me hate the world. I’m asking for your help before I start talking to myself about the decline of civility and spelling in the U.S.

Suggest a book for me to read in the comments. Any book. If I haven’t read it, I will hunt it down at the LA Public Library and read it. If I’ve already read it, I will go and read it again. I’ll write a book report or everything I read.

Here’s the criteria:

— Fiction will be read first because I deal with too much non-fiction for work.

— Any suggestions of 50 Shades of whatever will be ignored. I heard Gilbert Gottfried’s reading. That’s enough.

— Comic book suggestions are welcome, but I’m backed up on comics I’m reading. I typically read one book with pictures and one without pictures at the same time.

If you want an idea of my tastes, here’s a list of books I love.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland


The Handmaid’s Tale

Pride & Prejudice

The Picture of Dorian Gray


The Great Gatsby

There you go. Help out a bookworm today.

  1. Have you read Oryx & Crake and The Year of the Flood by Atwood? Quite good. Also, I would recommend Neal Stephenson’s Reamde. I think it may be his best one yet. It’s quite a long read, but it’s an action packed page turner. Also, anything by Neil Gaiman.

    • I haven’t read either of the Atwood books you mentioned. Neil Gaiman is one of my favorite authors. I haven’t read American Gods, though, so I think I’ll pick that up soon.

  2. The Wind Up Girl – Paolo Bacigalupi

    Cannery Row – Steinbeck

    Suttree – Cormac McCarthy (the language…my God)
