About mecitygirl’s 2015 pseudo-literary-awards-show results.
About my libraryThese are the books I'll admit to reading and wanting to read. A reflection of my reading life, but I imagine it will be challenging to make it accurate. These are the books that are in my consciousness, somewhere. The ones I want to read but haven't yet is telling, too. I don't own all of them; I own a good number of them. The children's books included are those that were special to me as a child (or that I still have around), excepting of course Lemony Snicket and Harry Potter. If you have good references for fiction writing or really good mysteries (a la Eliz. George, Carol O'Connell, Minette Walters...), please leave me a note.
