February Reads: 2016 Edition

Book Recommendations for February - A Detailed Palette

Since February is a shorter month, and we're already well into it, I am only reading two books this month - both of which are from my bookshelf. I just finished up All The Light We Cannot See and I can't recommend it enough. It was just incredibly written and an ultimately beautiful story amidst the tragedies of World War II. Another new favorite to add to the list and as soon as I am done reading the unread books that I own, I plan to read more of Anthony Doerr's work. 

For this month, I want to finish two works that I've started in the past but never managed to finish.

Midnight's Children by Salman Rushdie

I did not get far into this one at all, admittedly, on the first attempt. His writing takes some adjusting to, I believe. But there are supposed to be elements of magical realism in this novel which I absolutely love and can't wait to discover.

Winesburg, Ohio by Sherwood Anderson

I got about a fourth of a way into this one - as it considered a classic novel, I really want to finish this one. As an added bonus, it isn't too long. The fictional town represented so far totally reminds me of my own small hometown which is is kind of fun.
