favorite books (that awk moment when you don't read)

  • never let me go by kazuo ishiguro (for the wistful melancholy that i adore in writing, plus a hint of sci-fi)
  • kafka on the shore by haruki murakami (superb dialogue, magical realism, coming of age)
  • 1Q84 by haruki murakami (just the descriptions... the sense of ahhness)
  • delirium by lauren oliver (i remember being super into it when i was 15, engaging writing, interesting premise)
  • kitchen by banana yoshimoto (quiet, unassuming, and the beauty of her prose creeps up and hits you all at once)
  • 1984 by george orwell (well, it's a classic. and the ending hit me)
