I really want to read them! But right now my poor, tired brain just wants detective novels and romance novels (and sometimes detective/romance novels), which most of these are not. See you after I take the bar, rest of these books!
  1. Consider the Lobster and Other Essays, David Foster Wallace
  2. The Cuckoo's Calling, Robert Galbraith
    AKA J. K. Rowling
  3. The Handmaid's Tale, Margaret Atwood
  4. The Magicians, Lev Grossman
  5. The Man Who Mistook His Wife For a Hat, Oliver Sacks
  6. On Writing, Stephen King
  7. In Cold Blood, Truman Capote
  8. Ms. Marvel -- Volume 1, G. Willow Wilson and Adrian Alphona
    Not generally a comics person, but I've heard such good things
  9. The Ladies of Grace Adieu and Other Stories, Susanna Clarke
  10. Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, Susanna Clarke
  11. Her Smoke Rose Up Forever, James Tiptree Jr.
    Recommended by a friend when we were discussing the gender imbalance re: famous science fiction writers. (Sidenote: Would love more recommendations)
  12. The Eyre Affair, Jasper Fforde
  13. Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, Philip K. Dick
  14. Euphoria, Lily King
  15. Habibi, Craig Thompson
  16. Foundation, Isaac Asimov
    Love his short stories (and his time on Shakespeare), but haven't read any of his novels. This series seems really daunting. Should I do I, Robot instead?
  17. How To Be Both, Ali Smith
  18. The Peripheral, William Gibson
    Or should I start somewhere else with him?
  19. Dept. of Speculation, Jenny Offill
