Ok, so I am just over the half-way point in my quest to read 50 books in 2011.
I just finished Sara Gruen’s “Water For Elephants”. I enjoyed it, but it was a bit of a slow read. I want to see the movie now (big Reese Witherspoon fan). I picked up a new book/new author last night at Chapters. Amy found some Chapters gift cards lying around the house and when we checked the balances, we had $80.00 worth to spend! Score!
As I said, I picked up a new author to read. Linwood Barclay is a Canadian author who used to be a columnist for the Toronto Star. He writes thrillers and I picked up Never Look Away. One of my favourite authors, Stephen King, says this about Barclay and Never Look Away:
“Where has Linwood Barclay been all my life? His is the best thriller I’ve read in five years. I literally couldn’t put it down. The writing is crisp; the twists are jolting and completely unexpected.”
How cool is that? Can’t wait to start reading it!
My dilemma though? I need some more recommendations! Any good authors that you enjoy? I am open to any suggestions (ok, most suggestions…I tried reading Twilight and I think I am the only person on the planet who didn’t enjoy Meyer’s writing, lol). What’s on your reading list?
