The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, by Junot Diaz.

Reread. The new Great American Novel. )

Northern Lights, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass, by Philip Pullman.

Briefer review than this series really deserves. )

The Cuckoo's Calling, by Robert Galbraith.

The JKR novel. Better than The Casual Vacancy )

The Marriage Plot, by Jeffrey Eugenides.

Possibly the dumbest review I've ever written. No spoilers! )

What else what else. I'm sure I'm missing a couple of books, but this year's book-keeping records have been distinctly shoddy so that's no surprise. I've finished Culture & Imperialism (while waiting in the queue to submit my visa application, whoo, life is full of moments of situational irony like that), but thoughts on that will have to wait as they're currently fermenting. I am also reading Anna Karenina and enjoying it much more than the last time I attempted it (I was fourteen, there were 500 chapters, and I gave up when Tolstoy wrote his entire chapter on Levin's agricultural habits). Levin is such a dick though!
