My birthday is nigh (its in early August) and that means BOOKS. Yep, I am wanting me some new reads to celebrate turning another year older. The only problem is deciding which books - there are just so many good ones to choose from. Here's my wish list thus far:
I read a review of this and it just sounded so good. Working at a publishing house and dealing with Salinger - pretty exciting stuff.
The title alone makes me crave this book - me want!
I love the cover and everything I've heard about it makes me wonder why I haven't already read it. Its about a family tragedy which means family drama (which I love to read all about!).
As a Latina who pursued higher education this book is most definitely one that I need to read ASAP.
Learned about this book via my copy of Elle magazine and it just sounded like a book I would gobble up - twenty-somethings living in NYC. Its a book version of Girls (or at least that is what I'm hoping).
My friend Meredith posted about this book on her site, Dolce Bellezza and after reading her review I knew I had to read it. Of course, anything Meredith recommends I usually love - so, I'm really looking forward to this one.
An apartment in Paris - need I say more?
I'm a huge fan of The Pioneer Woman and already own her other two cookbooks and am just missing this one. I love cooking her recipes - the food always tastes DELICIOUS!
Hemingway in Paris with all his friends (Fitzgerald, Stein, Pound, Dali, Picasso, etc) - why wouldn't I want to read this book?
Wallace posted a mini-review of What Remains on her site, Unputdownables, and after reading it, I realize that I want to read this book. Especially, since I'm a fan of Radziwill's - I love the NYC Housewives and I really enjoyed her novel, The Widow's Guide to Sex and Dating.
What do you think? Its a pretty diverse wish list, eh? Do you have any recommendations? Have you read any of the books I mentioned? If so, tell me what you thought of them.
