Some of my favourite books that I read in the last few years were out of left field. They came from outside my normal sphere of reading, and impressed me all the more for it. I love finding those books.
The problem is, they can be hard to come by. My shelves and Kindle are absolutely heaving with books I think I want to read, but it’s mostly stuff that I think I want to read. There might be some surprises in there, but too few. I want to be surprised. I want you to surprise me.
I’ve just finished a book. Normally, I’d pull something else off my shelf and fire straight in. Instead, I’m going to hold off. I’d like you, if you can take a moment, to tell me what to read instead. A few criteria:
Whatever you suggest will go straight to the top of my reading list, and will be the next thing I pick up. If there are too many good suggestions, I’ll probably take one from a hat or something. If there are just enough, I might get them all.
Surprise me, with something I might never find myself. Suggestions in the comments either here on the site or over at FB please. Feel free to pop back and see if anyone else throws down with something that might catch your eye.
If I read it and hate it, that doesn’t mean I’ll hate you. I promise.
I am in your hands. Tell me what to do.
