Books I've Read Recently

Here is a list of the books I have read recently:

The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz

Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin

Les Miserables by Victor Hugo

Recently went to see the musical version of Les Miserables for the first time. It was AMAZING. One of the most inspiring things I have had the pleasure to see! I have a lot of respect for people who can adapt and write such a successful stage version of such an immense novel. So much depth to include, and conflict, and characterization. Javert is fascinating!

Next to read on my list:

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

Middlemarch by George Eliot

We'll see how they turn out! I'm pretty excited. I flew back to Boston for a conference, so there should be quite a bit of downtime between symposiums and seminars for me to catch up on a little bit of reading.


  1. What did you think about The Game of Thrones? I heard nothing but good things.

  2. I've kept putting off Game of Thrones because the series is long. But I've heard it's worth it! :)

  3. I'd had folks tell me to get started on Game of Thrones, but it's so huge! Definitely the next door-stopper series on my list.

    I gave you a Shout-Out on my blog today! :)
