The Last Few Books You've Read
I just barely finished a book called Please Look After Mom by Kyung-Sook Shin. This was one interesting, unique read. It had first person, third person, and second person. You'd think that would be just too weird or too hard to follow, but I actually really liked this one. I discovered it because I wanted to read more Asian literature and so found the Man Asian Literary Prize on Wikipedia and this was the first one I found that was at the library.
I'm having trouble remembering because I also listen to audiobooks in the car (right now its The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing) so I get them a bit mixed up. But I also recently read Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly which ended up being totally fabulous even though I didn't like the main character in the beginning. That one was a trusted recommendation.
In my purse right now, waiting to be started, is I Still Dream About You by Fannie Flagg. We'll see how it goes. This one I discovered because I really like the movie Fried Green Tomatoes so I figured I'd read something by the author of the book that movie is based on.
Your turn! What have you recently finished, or what are you reading now, and where did you discover it?
