Crossroads by Jonathan Franzen

Jonathan Franzen is my favourite living author and anytime he puts out a new book it's worth celebrating. I literally got into a fight with my boyfriend because I felt he rushed me in the bookstore when I went to purchase Crossroads and that it "ruined an experience I waited six years for." This was also an exciting release because it is apparently the first book in a trilogy! This was at odds with Franzen previously saying he doesn't believe he has many other 500-paged books left in him. He is referring to the trilogy as "A Key to All Mythologies." I learned this title is an inside joke with his current girlfriend and her ex-husband.

Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger


I got this book for Christmas last year and had it on my list because it's the second novel by the author who wrote The Time Traveler's Wife, a book that was both hard to read and very enjoyable. I was a bit off-put to hear that this was a 'horror' novel as that's not really my genre but decided to give it a go anyways around Halloween of this year. It was incredibly weird but I still sort of liked it, and I'm happy to report it's definitely not 'horror' by any definition.
