I'm a GoodReads user testing new waters after the serious website changes. I mostly read fiction, usually Anglophone classics/ modern classics; I like nonfiction (mostly social and cultural history), good fantasy and graphic novels. For guilty pleasure, I read advice and how-to books. I made at least two reading resolutions recently; 1. read less, live more; 2. read books which give me more pleasure. I have poor filters, and books I find stylistically pleasing tend to be depressing, so I need to do something about that; if you think you know a book that is very well written, but won't make me weep, please drop me a line.

The Other Side of You

The Other Side of You - Salley Vickers I find it much better than the much-hailed 'Miss Garnet's Angel' (which I believe most people liked for its setting). Reminds me of Carol Shields. Quick (devoured in a day) yet quality read.
