I like literary fiction, dark crime novels, especially when those novels have been written by someone outside of the mainstream; works in translation, by minority writers or from small publishers. I'm also interested in works by writers from the American South or Canada. If there is a book that you've loved, I'd like to read that, too. I'd like to be introduced to new authors. While noir and straight literary fiction are my favorite genres, if a book is well-written and innovative, I'm willing to read other genres. Every book I own or have read is in my LT catalog.
Don't get this!
Cozies, inspirational books or anything overtly heartwarming. My cold, hard heart just doesn't like 'em. Also avoid mainstream bestsellers.
Take a chance. I've yet to be disappointed, and I have often been pleasantly surprised.
RidgewayGirl's Secret Santa is ablachly. Help ablachly pick the right book.

Cariola: Great choices, Abby, and quite the mix in genre, setting, and style. I'm especially glad that you chose 'Go, Went, Gone.' RidgewayGirl lived in Germany fairly recently, so I know she will relate to this one. (Fri, 30 Nov 2018 14:48:27 -0500)
