Six Impossible Things

A Blog About Fiction and Reading

Recommendations

I'm always looking for new writers to read, new fiction to devour.  If you have a suggestion for a writer I haven't mentioned, or a book that you think is one of the best ever written, please include it in this thread.  Some of the books I've read that I wouldn't have considered reading without someone recommending them are:

  • The Color Purple by Alice Walker
  • Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston
  • Life of Pi by Yann Martel
  • The View from Saturday by E.L. Konigsburg
  • Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech

So, you can see, it sometimes takes some gentle nudging to get me to try authors who are outside of my normal tastes.  Even though the list of books I want to read has become voluminous, please don't hesitate to recommend another title.  Sometimes, it's worth the extra time to discover a new author.
