Pile of books


These are some books I bought recently. I have a huge "to read" list, but can't seem to stop getting more!

David Sedaris is an all-time favourite of mine, I've read many of his books and they are so funny, sincere, entertaining, touching. I've also been lucky enough to meet him in a book signing last year, he was so sweet and approachable, it made me love him even more! His sister, Amy Sedaris, is one talented lady too, her book I Like You: Hospitality Under The Influence is brilliant.

Are you reading anything good?

I've been reading a lot of Mary Higgins Clark recently. She's really good! You should try reading one of her books if you get a chance!

I just realized you have The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay in your stack! That's a definite favorite of mine... there's always rumors of it being made into a film.

I love "When you are engulfed in flames." It's hilarious, because all of the fire safety signs here in Hong Kong always use "when" instead of "if" and it always makes me think of that!

I need a recommendation for what David Sedaris book to read first. Everyone has such a different opinion I can't decide. Should I just work chronologically?

Oh, Sedaris is so funny, he keeps me up at nights. I'd recommend you start with Naked. You can't go wrong though with any of his books.
