This is a place for books and other awesome things.
Happy November 1st everyone!
In an unexpected turn of events, I've decided to participate in this year's NaNoWriMo. For that reason, I'm going to be reading short story collections throughout the month of November!
I hope to make my way through Brief Interviews with Hideous Men by David Foster Wallace, Palo Alto by James Franco, Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman by Haruki Murakami, and Wilderness Tips by Margaret Atwood. I'm really looking forward to reading each of these collections. Brief Interview with Hideous Men will be my introduction to David Foster Wallace's writing and I'm eager to see what I think of his style. Palo Alto I picked up on a whim, but really look forward to checking out. And Blind Woman, Sleeping Willow and Wilderness Tips are respectively written by two of my all time favourite fiction writers!
My review of the Divergent Trilogy will be up within the next week, so stay tuned! I also intend to go see and review the movie adaptions of Ender's Game, The Book Thief, and Catching Fire this month.
