I'm not making a list up front this time as I hope some new authors just fall into my lap. I do, however, plan to read Jhumpa Lahiri's latest book, Unaccustomed Earth, because I loved Interpreter of Maladies. I do have one recommendation if anyone needs it: Atlas of Unknowns by Tania James. I read this very recently and think it's fabulous. Of course, Swapna has tons of recs on her site which I'll probably pull from heavily.
Finally, my commitment is to read 5 books, for now. I certainly hope I read more, but I don't know what other challenges 2010 has in store and I have a few things up my sleeves. 2010 is already stacking up to be a great reading year, but then again, so does every year.
