52 Books in 52 Weeks: The Epic Read-a-thon

So, I've completely lost my mind and decided to enter 2010 Cannonball Read where I will be reading and reviewing one book a week for a whole year. I mean, its not like I don't read anyway... I might as well do something productive with all that commentary in my head. It should be fun at any rate and my friend Anhelo  will be doing it along with me. Let the wild rumpus start!

One of the great things about this is that I officially have an excuse to tell everyone about all the books that I think are awesome. So lets have a breakdown of what my favorite genres are:

1. Science Fiction
2. Fantasy
3. (Secretly) Sappy Mystery Romances
4. Other random things that I pick up in bookstores.

I will be trying to read outside of my genres in a effort to broaden my scope so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!


  1. Hello, fellow Cannonball Reader! I just wanted to drop by and say thanks for the recommendations you left on my blog, Shut Up And Color. I will definitely be reading a few of the books you suggested. I don't have too many to recommend, but you might check out a few of my favorites if you feel like it: The Brief Wondrous Life Of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz (might be extra special-super-wonderful since you are a sci-fi lover), Geek Love by Katherine Dunn, The Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri, and The Woman In White by Wilkie Collins if you find yourself in a Victorian Gothic kind of mood. Good luck with the read, and thanks again for dropping by!

  2. Definitely "The Woman In White". This is acknowledged to be the official "First Ever" Mystery Novel written.
