Pictures of Perfection (Dalziel and Pascoe Mysteries) by Reginald Hill
Pictures of Perfection (Dalziel and Pascoe Mysteries)

sampls, March 7, 2007

My favorite mystery novel. Period.

Seriously, just take my word for it. DO NOT read any reviews. DO NOT read the book jacket. DO NOT so much as glance at a blurb. It wouldn't be any fun if you knew anything (let alone everything) about what happens, right? Right. So Step 1: Start reading the novel. Now, you might find yourself thinking, Oh, this isn't my kind of mystery at all. Which brings us to Step 2: KEEP READING. (Step 3 is completely optional: You can thank me later.)

Black Boy (P.S.) by Richard Wright
Black Boy (P.S.)

sampls, March 4, 2007

A marvelous autobiography about growing up under segregation. My favorite part is when our black and bookworm hero plots and schemes and finds a way to get books from a whites-only library. You gotta love that. No wait, I mean you gotta hate that. Oh, you know what I mean.

Novel on Yellow Paper, Or, Work It Out for Yourself by Stevie Smith
Novel on Yellow Paper, Or, Work It Out for Yourself

Utterly unique. I was so charmed by Smith's idiosyncratic voice that I couldn't stop reading.

But she wasn't kidding with that alternate title. I want to get as many people as possible to read this book so that eventually someone might explain the ending to me.
