What I'm reading this week
After hearing all the talk about Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee, i am hesitant to read it. Part of me is afraid it will lessen my appreciation for To Kill a Mockingbird, but I feel I need to read it to be able to speak from an informed position, and there's just so much involved in the story behind it's coming to be published I have to see what it is for myself. Here's to hoping my heroic image of Atticus Finch is not irredeemably damaged.
I can't believe I have never read any Raymond Carver. I have always been intrigued by the title What We Talk About When We Talk About Love (and it's been revamped for so many other books of late) but until now have not ventured to read it. So when I saw the movie, Birdman, last year my interest was reawoken (those of you who haven't seen the movie, the lead character puts on a stage adaptation of the story). So here I am taking the plunge, I'll let you know how it goes.
What's new in the Book World
Another book I was lucky enough to pick up a BEA, The Lost Canyon by Nina Revoyr, is a page turner that won't let you sleep. It's been referred to as Deliverance meets Wild. It begins slowly but don't let that stop you it pays off in the end. Hoping for some sequel because I want more.
