recommendations from my meanderings through the world of books

Emma by Jane Austin
I love Pride and Prejudice, but was disappointed by Emma.... so much so that I didn’t even finish it. This book lacks the wit of Pride & Prejudice and I just got tired of reading about the manipulative, self-absorbed, flighty heroine.
Much to my pleasant surprise, I'm getting regular requests for a current book list, so I've upgraded my previously emailed book list to a blog - which I'm updating (more or less) real-time. Now, when you're looking for reading suggestions, you can check it out. LMK what you think of the blog and feel free to add your 2c to my blurbs. And LMK if you've read something great recently. Despite my best attempts to keep up with the piles of books on my "to read" list, the list keeps growing - but I'm ok with "struggling" to keep up :-) Enjoy!
With the exception of the "reject pile" category, all categories below will only bring up recommendations. If, for some obscure reason, you'd like to see the books I read but didn't like/don't recommend, check out the "reject pile". Why bother writing blurbs on mediocre or lousy books? Because I'm curious to see how many books I read in a year - and this is an easy way to keep track.
