I love reading books. Why? The turn of the page, the sentence that resonates, or the lingering feeling that you remember even after you’ve finished reading a book almost two days ago. It’s a place where you can consume yourself with a vast array of emotions, resounding sadness and raucous laughter, sparkled with nuances of disappointment, anger, contentment, and most importantly, escape. Once I’ve experienced a good book, I am eager to converse about it.
This is what I am reading at this moment:
When She Woke By Hilary Jordan
Blue Nights by Joan Didion
The Sense of An Ending by Julian Barnes
Miss Timmons School for Girls by Nayana Currimbhoy
As the end of year approaches, I’m asking this question. Of all the books you’ve read this year, which one book would you recommend as your must read for 2011? And, please, let me know why.
