proustbot: (but hearts are earned)
[livejournal.com profile] simpleparadox asked for book recommendations, which reminded me how much I enjoy forcing other people to recommend books for me. I like hearing about new books, and I like discovering that my friends have interests and passions of which I was previously unaware. (Book lists are terribly suggestive.)

So: please recommend five books to me. They can be books you just read, or books you love, or books sitting next to you, or books organized along a theme.

I'll start. Here are five books that people have commanded me to read:
1. Richard Adams, Watership Down
2. Joseph Conrad, Nostromo
3. P. D. James, The Skull Beneath the Skin
4. Kenneth Oppel, Silverwing
5. Franny Billingsley, The Folk Keeper

Also, here are five books I read recently:
Have His Carcase, Wolf Wing, Cetaganda, Murder Must Advertise, and Johnny and the Dead )

My body had apparently decided to have low blood pressure this month. I have yet to start blacking out, but it does take me about two hours after waking up before I start feeling semi-human. Thanks, self! As always, you are a peach.

Lord Peter, I, Rigoberta Menchu, Wolf Queen, The Merlin Conspiracy, and Sorcery and Cecelia )
