Book tastes

I'm a fan of brain-bending fiction (usually sci-fi or fantasy, but also literary fiction of a similar ilk)- the weirder, the better! I also like non-fiction about history or food :) I want to read more works by queer or POC writers, so any that fit my tastes would be a plus!

Don't get this!

uuuuuuhh no Ayn Rand, please. Not super into Clancy-esque thrillers either.

Secret Santa

loubrarian: Season's Greetings from the UK!

I really hope that you like your book!

I had a tough time choosing a book for you, so here are some extra suggestions:

Station Eleven by Emily St John Mandel

Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie

(The above two books were both recommended for you by LibraryThing; I thought they would be a bit too much of an obvious choice, they were also over-budget, sorry).

LGBT+ read: The Argonauts by Maggie Nelson - I didn't choose this one because I haven't read it.

I'd also like to say you have a great LT library.

Have a lovely holiday,

lorannen: Removed A Wizard of Earthsea (9780547722023) due to budget. We can't order used copies for SantaThing.

Done. (Sat, 08 Dec 2018 18:48:51 -0500)
