I love reading. Books are fulfilling unlike anything else (with the exception of some music, but only some). So far, 2011 has been a remarkable year for my literary cultivation. I slacked a bit throughout college, but those days are long gone now. (Cue the Hallelujah Chorus.) My favorite kind of genre is dark/science fiction laced with political undertones. That might seem a bit specific, but a lot of the novels I read fall into that category.
WIthout further ado, here is 2011 in books (so far).
So far they’ve been pretty good, though a few books (ahem: the works of Bret Easton Ellis) are pretty messed up. I typically like “messed up” though. Maybe I’m messed up. And Stephen King’s “IT” was so promising in the beginning-middle, but it dragged on and on. Otherwise, I recommend any of these books, especially those by Ray Bradbury. He’s my favorite. I can’t ever get enough.
Thanks for reading.
