Shewanda Pugh's Blog: The Wandering Mind of a Romance Writer - Posts Tagged "book-wish-list"

Here are the books I wish I had, plan to buy, or hope to receive as a gift. Feel free to comment on any perceived trends, curiosities, or surprises found within. Do they seem like the books of an interracial romance novelist? Or, as some fans have pointed out to me, do you wish I’d stop calling myself a romance novelist altogether? I’ve been told it’s a disservice to my work, though I suspect it’s perhaps a slight misnomer. In any regard, here is my current wish list. Share yours!
1. Rules for Virgins by Amy Tan
2. Nanjing Requiem by Ha Jin
3. War Trash by Ha Jin
4. Home, Toni Morrison
5. The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri
6. Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James
7. The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Díaz
8. Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides
9. The Road by Cormac McCarthy
10. UR by Stephen King
11. Appalachee Red by Raymond Andrews
12. The Other Woman by Eric Jerome Dickey
13. A Mercy by Toni Morrison
14. Life of Pi by Yann Martel
15. The Coffin Quilt: The Feud between the Hatfields and the McCoys by Ann Rinaldi
Feel free to suggest books you think should be added.
