    I would have to say that Rachel Joyce is my new-to-me new favorite author. I have a few of your titles here on my tbr but yet to read. I read Toni Morrison ages ago but not anything since We do share We Should All Be Feminists but I had her on my tbr too long already so quite call her NEW, I just need to read some of her fiction SOON.

      Me too! Which surprised me because I’m not normally a fan of short stories. But it was hilarious, and I liked that there was so much variation, both in content and format. Here’s hoping he’s working on a new book!

    Oh, I totally forgot to add Toni Morrison on my list! How did I forget about that one! Great list though! I’ve been wanting to read something by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie for quite a long time now, but it still hasn’t happened yet. Maybe I should make that a reading goal for next year…

      Thanks! I was glad to finally read a Morrison book, not having read her was an embarrassing gap in my reading. And she did not disappoint. I’d definitely recommend We Should All Be Feminists – not only because it’s excellent, but because it’s a really short, quick read, so it’s not much of a commitment. It’ll stick with you though!
