Literary Fiction

I don’t read a whole lot of literary fiction, but not by design. Like I said yesterday, I read stories based on if they sound interesting to me. I don’t purposely ignore Literary Fiction, but sometimes there’s just so much to read that I end up overlooking it.


I do love Jonathan Safran Foer‘s Everything is Illuminated and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. I had mixed feelings but mainly enjoyed The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman. I liked-not-loved Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro. I couldn’t get into One Day by David Nicholls. I cared a lot about the characters in The Help by Kathryn Stockett. I know I’m forgetting some! I don’t think I’ve read any in 2013.

I definitely need to expand my literary fiction reading! I’m excited read posts from today and add more books to my TBR list! I have been having a lot of fun looking at posts and getting ideas on what to read! I’ve also met some cool people! I’m really enjoying Armchair BEA.
