My February reading was pretty eclectic: a short story collection, a novella, a non-fiction account of an expedition in the Amazon, and novels. My pick of the month is Stay Awake by Dan Chaon, a short story collection that I’m still thinking about and keep on recommending to my friends. I also really enjoyed Heft, but the characters in Stay Awake are more vivid for me.
- Ragnarok by A.S. Byatt
- The Lost Saints of Tennessee by Amy Franklin-Willis
- Outside the Lines by Amy Hatvany
- Me and You by Niccolo Ammaniti
- Stay Awake by Dan Chaon
- Open City by Teju Cole
- The Unconquered by Scott Wallace
- Heft by Liz Moore
It was a very busy reading month for me in February, and I expect the pace to slow a bit in March because I plan to read a couple books for the Back to the Classics reading challenge.
