Todays topic is literary fiction and my first thought is what is that! Seriously, I don’t fit books into boxes or genres, I just pick up a book because I like the look and sound of it. So I did what any good clueless blogger would do, I googled it. That wasn’t much help, I’m still confused between what is mainstream fiction and literary fiction. However I can now reliably inform you that literary fiction is literature that has merit. Well if you ask me merit is in the eye of the reader, so like I said that wasn’t much help!
What did help was the GoodReads list of literary fiction. And it appears I have read and loved some.
And I have some on to to-read list as well:
So it would appear that even though I still don’t really get what exactly defines a book as literary fiction that I do read them! And at the end of the day, that’s all that matters to me.
And the moral of the day : When it comes to books – Google sucks, GoodReads rocks 🙂
