Most people who are into books, I think, have the tendency to pick up volumes when they see a good deal, and then not have time to read them all. I am one of those people– and so this year I’m going to make an effort to read through a big chunk of my unread library! Some of these books are partially read, some of them I’ve had for (ugh) years and still haven’t gotten to. Changes are afoot!
One of my problems is that I have quite a few “heavy” books on here that I’m never “in the mood” to read. I’m sure if I make myself invest the time, I’ll be happy I did. I’m not gonna force myself to read 50 books this year, or even 12 for that matter, because between work and life I am always busy. BUT! I’m definitely trying to go “screen free” a couple of nights a week and spend that time reading or playing board games or other interesting activities.
Below is a partial list. I have more unread books, but these are the ones on my “hit list” for the near future. Have you read any of them? Did you like or dislike them? Anything I should know!
A Passage to India – EM Forster
Don’t Stop the Carnival – Herman Wouk
After Long Silence – Helen Fremont
Suite Francaise – Irene Nemirovsky
Maps for Lost Lovers – Nadeen Aslam
Reading Lolita in Tehran – Azar Nafisi
A Bloodsmoor Romance – Joyce Carol Oates – working on right now!
Daughter of Fortune – Isabel Allende
The Joy Luck Club – Amy Tan
Madame Bovary – Gustave Flaubert
There are more on my Kindle but I won’t go there (right now).
Many of these will be found at your local library! If you want to read along with me shoot me a message! Maybe we should do a monthly reading club? I enjoyed when A Beautiful Mess had their “book of the month.”
