With a holiday coming up I might actually get some time to read a book! I got burnt by the DaVinci Code - hours of my life that I will never get back! So I've finally got the courage to get a new book and need some ideas please.
In the past I've found quite a few good books in the 'litrature' section of a bookstore. My favoutite books would include 1984, Trainspotting, Like Water for Chocolate, Memoirs of a Geisha and Perfume. I'm also a fan of futuristic SciFi (but NOT fantasy). I also have a secret penchant for a bit of trashy (but engrossing) Aussie chic lit.
I know lots of readers IRL - but none with my taste, in fact for most of them I know if they like a book I will probably hate it. So looking for ideas from anyone with similar tastes?
