Book Lovers – I Need Your Help! A Blog A Day Challenge – Day 8

“Currently Reading”

As an avid reader I’m prone to feelings of severe post-book depression. I dread the last few pages of a book that I’m loving because I’m always certain I will never ever find another book as good. Ultimately, I do, but the weeks in between are hard – poring through vile crap in order to find literary gold.

To alleviate the pain of ‘bad book syndrome’ I need your help. If, based on the books I’m about to mention below, you think you have one I will love, please be a dear and let me know? Hopefully you will also find a few goodies with comments posted from other. See, its like a e-book club, but with less wine.

A few of my favourite books, ever, to get us started:

1. We need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver

We Need To Talk About Kevin

2. White Oleander by Janet Fitch

3. Gone Girl by Elizabeth Flynn

4. The Voluptuous Delights of Peanut Butter and Jam by Lauren Liebenberg

  1. I hear Lauren Liebenberg’s new book is good. It’s set in Dainfurn. And pokes fun at Jozi suburbia. And is about a mother-son relationship.

    Actually, it sounds like I should read it.

  2. I think you’ll enjoy The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery, Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Gemsquash Tokoloshe by Rachel Zadok – they’re all brilliant! 🙂
