Recently, the movie version of Lisa Genova‘s novel Still Alice came out. I am very interested in the story and only just came to know of Genova’s novels upon discovering the movie’s book beginnings. So, before I watch the movie I’d like to read the book. (GoodReads)
I read an article on Forbes in which founders picked their best startup book and the one that caught my eye was Rework by Jason Fried & David Hanson. I’m looking forward to this one as its blurb on GoodReads has it as a very different business book from the norm. (GoodReads)
I’m just about done reading The Brief & Wonderous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz which I have deeply enjoyed. One of this book’s characters is the protagonist of Diaz’s new book This Is How You Lose Her. I will definitely be reading this one. Keep an eye out for my review of Oscar to hear more about the awesome stuff of Junot Diaz. (GoodReads)
Earlier this month the Guardian 1st Book Award announced the 2015 longlist and from it I have 3 picks I’m hoping to be able to read. The first is Nothing is True & Everything is Possible by Peter Pomerantsev which looks very interesting. (GoodReads)
The 2nd is The Shore by Sara Taylor which spans 200 years and follows a family from the past into an apocalyptic future. I’m dying to see what it’s all about. It has been compared to David Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas so that really sold me on it. (GoodReads)
The 3rd and final book is Grief is the Thing with Feathers by Max Porter. A story about a family and their grief after losing their mom/wife. This one just spoke to me personally and I do love Ted Hughs so hoping to read this one. (GoodReads)
