Books I don’t have time to read, but think other reviewers might review them well
November 8, 2011 § 19 Comments
Neth Space – Helen Oyeyemi, Mr. Fox. Being a new father should prepare him well for how Oyeyemi constructs her latest novel.
Empty Your Heart of Its Mortal Dream – Terry Goodkind, The Omen Machine. I think it would be neat to see how Paul would break down Goodkind.
Dazed Rambling – Stewart O’Nan, Songs for the Missing. Just because I’d like to see his reaction to it.
Pat’s Fantasy Hotlist – Georges Perec, Les choses. Why? Because it’s in French, Pat can read French, and I just want to see if he’ll use at least one of the following: “It’s YA,” “Fans of Salvatore and/or Weiss & Hickman…,” “7.5/10”
The Wertzone – Amy Waldman, The Submission. Just because.
A Dribble of Ink – Moacyr Scliar, Kafka’s Leopards. I want to see if Aidan will get past the cover art and cover the entire novel.
Mat Hatter’s Bookshelf & Book Review – Javier Marías, Your Face Tomorrow (trilogy). Again, just because.
The Speculative Scotsman – Ann and Jeff VanderMeer (eds.), ODD? If you’re planning to cover The Weird, I’d like to see someone cover its little brother/cousin, ODD?
There, with one notable exception, these are all books that I’ve read this year (guess which one I haven’t) that I think might be interesting to see how others would cover them. Hopefully, a few reading this will actually take me up on this and try out those works.
