Some novels I read and enjoyed in the past year – more info on each one later.

On Beauty by Zadie Smith

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

Les Misérables by Victor Hugo (read it here)

If On a Winter’s Night a Traveller by Italo Calvino

Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides

Life of Pi by Yann Martel

The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Michael Chabon

Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh

(Looking at the list, I’m struck by the authors’ interesting names. I need to change mine, I think.)

  1. I’m disappointed, Julie!
    Does this mean you still haven’t read “The Glass Palace” by Amitav Ghosh??
    Surely, it should be on this list? A great novel – and a funny name – what more can you ask for?
    I remember at time, ages ago, when my opinion carried some weight. But, alas…. those were the days 🙂

  2. Julie, har du lest “Special Topics in Calamity Physics” av Marisha Pessl? Jeg tror du kunne likt den.
