One day she was flicking through a magazine and came across an article which had a small interview with John Green, one of my favourite authors and personalities, listing his "life in books" and reasons for liking them. No doubt feeling inspired, she bought them for me.
The books are The Book Thief - Markus Zusak, Infinite Jest - David Foster Wallace, The Crack-Up - F.Scott Fitzgerald, Where'd You Go, Bernadette? - Maria Semple, and Sula - Toni Morrison.
I'm incredibly excited to delve into these books! I've wanted to read The Book Thief for ages, and hopefully I'll finish it before I get to see the film. I will of course review these books as I get round to reading them, either on here or Blogger's Bookshelf.
Have you read any of these books? Let me know in the comments.
