|A personalized reading list? Best thing ever.|
Here's what I put down for my reading preference:
Liked: Lolita, Flowers for Algernon, Jeffery Eugenides and Jane Austen (tone)
Didn't like: Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao (for the plot and characters), Jodi Picoult
Would like: Poetic language, socially relevant topics, modern setting, character studies, 250-500 pages
I got a recommendation of fifteen books including:
The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
The Visitation by Frank E. Peretti
Kartography by Kamila Shamsie
Based on the short blurbs that came with the list, many have a sci-fi futuristic feel to them, wronged characters, different identities, unexpected situations, and revealed secrets. I am so excited to start this list, like I got an early Christmas present in September!

Today at the gym I waited for a Zumba class to finish before my class and saw an older guy shaking it among the all-ladies club- the best. I need to try it out eventually- it looks like a ton of energetic fun!
