Heidi Pitlor: The Birthdays
I'm loving this story about 3 siblings who gather to celebrate their dad's 75th birthday. It's frightening how many similarities there are with the Millers in the novel, and the Denise real-life siblings.
Susan Choi: American Woman
I'm reading this because I saw it on SuperSpecialK's bookshelf once and she told me I should read it. I'm having a bit of a hard time getting into it, but I think I'm supposed to.
Ayelet Waldman: Love and Other Impossible Pursuits
Maybe it's because I like this author's husband's writing so much--but I've lapped up both of Ayelet Waldman's novels eagerly.
Martha Sherrill: The Ruins of California
I loved this book, and burned through it in a day. A good read for many reasons, but particularly if you have a soft spot for San Francisco or California in general.
