Reading Recommendations

After the recent influx of outfit shots, I thought I'd touch on something different: reading.

I'm on my 43rd book for the year and am sure I can make my way through many more before 2010 comes to a close.

I appeal to you, dear sequin and cat fans, what books do you thoroughly recommend to me? I'm open to new genres and authors and like to try different styles. That's why book club is so great - it pushes me to read books I normally wouldn't consider. Only this year it encouraged me to read The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler, along with The Day of the Triffids by John Wyndham. I enjoyed both immensely.

Tell me what your favourite book is and why?


  1. Hmm I don't have a favourite book but I really loved Tandia by Bryce Courtenay (and, obviously, The Power of One) and I also just finished The Slap and it was fantastic.

  2. I've never read an Bryce Courtenay. I started The Slap on the bus the other day and decided not to continue with it. I may come back to it. The man friend recommended it.
