Self has loved all the books she’s read so far this year. Some are lighter reads than others, but in general she’s been really lucky in her reading choices. Here are the books she’s read so far in 2016:
- Road Dogs, by Elmore Leonard
- The Forever War, by Dexter Filkins
- The Death of Ivan Ilyich, by Leo Tolstoy
- Candide, by Voltaire
- Watch Me, by Anjelica Huston
- My Brilliant Friend, by Elena Ferrante
- The Girl on the Train, by Paula Hawkins
- Girl Waits With Gun, by Amy Stewart
- The Green Road (currently reading), by Anne Enright
This is a sentence from Enright’s novel. Two “boys,” Dan and Billy, are walking together on a clear Manhattan night, just “after rain.” One of the boys is out of the closet, the other not really:
- The boys’ winter coats were both open to the mild night, their long scarves hung down, blue and green.
And that’s it! There’s the sentence. Hope you like it as much as self did.
Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay night.
