Yesterday I was looking over my book-a-holic wife’s shelves, hoping she had a couple of early Gillian Slovo novels (nope).
While we were talking about the wonderful Barbara Kingsolver today, the wife suggested today that I spend a year where all the fiction I read is all by women, (with a bias towards non-Western). And that I keep at least a tally, or ideally do blog reviews.
It’s a corking idea (and not just because it comes from She Who Must Be Obeyed).
So that’s what I am going to do. It means that more Reginald Hill (a new discovery for me) will have to wait. But it also means that I will plough through a lot of stuff that has mysteriously never made it to the top of my to-read pile…
Watch this space.
First reviews will be – Several Deceptions by Jane Stevenson (read it last week. Excellent) and the Hunger Games 2 and 3 (reading now).
