Ten Four Favourite New-To-Me Authors I Read In 2012
Another week of less than ten as I really haven't read that much by new-to-me authors this year - oops!
1. Virginia Woolf - I think the reason I've stayed away from Woolf for so long is because my mum is really not a fan and it must have clouded my judgement as I've only recently purchased some of her books (To The Lighthouse and The Waves) I've only begun one so far but I'm really liking the writing styles and the characters so I'm really glad to have finally read some of her work!
2. Lionel Shriver - For We Need To Talk About Kevin, which is probably my book of the year, absolutely sublime. If you've not read this yet then I strongly urge you to pick it up! I have a review here if you want to know more.
3. Don Delillo - I've been meaning to read Delillo for a long time but have never gotten around to it. I actaly managed to get Underworld for the ridiculous price of £2.50 or something a month or two back and was amazed when it arrived - it's dauntingly huge and a hardback (what a steal!) and though I've only flicked through and read a few chapters, I'm really liking his writing so far!
4. Sebastian Faulks - Birdsong blew me away really, another favourite of the year and I'm still looking to buy the other two titles in the series.
I'm excited to read everyone else's posts this week as I clearly need to broaden my horizons!
