Armchair BEA: Better Late than Never

I know I'm joining in pretty late but I completely forgot that it had started and they say "Better late than never" 

So Today I'm going to introduce myself and then I'm going to talk about today's topic literary fiction

Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging? 
Hi guys ! My name is Krazzyme. I've been blogging for more than 2 years now . I'm actually celebrating my blogoversary so if you want to enter some cool giveaways you should check out the links at the top. I got into blogging by pure accident. I thought this looks cool and just decided to start blogging. I had no clear goals or ANY goals for that matter :P

Have you previously participated in Armchair BEA? What brought you back for another year?

I participated in Armchair BEA last year. I can't attend the actual BEA because I'm not based in US so that's why I love Armchair BEA because it's almost like going to the real thing 

Tell us one non-book-related thing that everyone reading your blog may not know about you.

I am a HUGE movie and TV buff . I also get addicted to manga and anime easily. Skip Beat! is one of my all time favorite manga and anime.

What are you currently reading
Well.. Right now I'm reading loads of books at the same time. Much Ado About Nothing,Reboot and I'm going to start reading another book soon as well...


So I wasn't 100% what books were classified as literary fiction but Google came to the rescue as always.

"Literary fiction
 is a term principally used for certain fictional works that are claimed to hold literary merit."

So basically I'm going to take this to mean classics and books that are considered modern classics.

I know a lot of people might not agree with me but I think quite a few young adult novels that have recently come up could come under this category.

Some books that I think might come under this category that I recommend are:
Through The Ever Night by Veronica Rossi
Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Some books that I know come under this category that I recommend are:
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
Good Wives by Louisa May Alcott
Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie
Around The World in Eighty Days by Jules Verne

Literary fiction books I plan to read

Life of Pi (because the movie rocked)
The Help (reason same as above)
Silver Linings Playbooks (because the movie has Jennifer Lawrence)


  1. Happy Blogversary! My only goal when I started was to have somewhere to yap about books, lol.

    Happy ABEA!

  2. I sure love Armchair BEA too, since it's unlikely I'll ever get to a BEA. I'm pretty much ignorant when it comes to literary fiction too :)

  3. The Hunger Games is more YA dystopian, but I also think they are going to prove themselves to be timeless, so count it if you want I say!

    I read Life of Pi a few years ago and loved it.

  4. I was late to the party with my intro too. I want to read all those YA books you mentioned, only I think I'll start with the first book in each series. :P

  5. I need to read Silver Linings Playbook and Life of Pi, too!

  6. I really had EVERY intention of doing Armchair BEA this year... *sigh* yeah. I fail!

  7. Mafi & Rossi are both amazing authors.

  8. Nice to meet you! Love Armchair BEA and getting to visit so many cool blogs.

  9. Life of Pi and The Help are both great! Hope you get to read them soon!
