This last year, I tried to read only fiction written by women. I have read all the Kathy Reichs books but I decided to pick up and try new (to me) female authors to find some new favorites. I am not big into the Shopoholic type of books. Romance leaves me rolling my eyes. Someone gave me Eat, Pray, Love and the font alone irritated me. In short, I have started a lot of books that I put right back down again.
My notable exception to my reading drought is in Young Adult fiction. I checked out Lois Lowry’s book, The Giver, and followed it up with Number the Stars. I am just old enough that her fiction missed me when it was written. They were interesting enough that I reserved the book after The Giver at the library.
Looking forward to it.
