Fall/Winter 2017 Reading

Usually, I do a reading list for the coming season. I’m going to start doing only two a year. Since I started my Graduate program my reading lists are pretty much laid out in front of me for the next two years. The good news is that since it is an MFA program I do get to pick my reading still. They just have to center around the projects I am working on.

So…these are the books currently on my reading list for fall/winter 2017. It is a big longer than my previous lists. Some are related to the projects I am working on and a few are new books that I have been waiting awhile for (Janet Fitch’s new novel. I’ve been waiting for this one for years!) Hopefully I’ll get to throw a few extras in here and there. Review/thoughts on the books I read can be found on my Instagram account.
