I had so many discussions on next title for read-along with you and have garnered some support to read a book together with friends, that I thought I’ll compile a list to remind myself to check back here when looking for the next reading inspiration.
My friend J, Wilfrid and I will be re-reading (in my case) Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert.
Bookie Mee and I will be reading East of Eden or 2666 together at some point this year.
Jenny and I will be reading Wuthering Heights for the first time this Spring. Woo hoo! 😉
Bina and I are going to read Frenchman’s Creek and My Cousin Rachel by Daphne Du Maurier at some point.
I am keeping in mind that:
Vishy wants to read The End of Mr. Y by Scarlett Thomas and Baba Yaga Laid an Egg, which I think Eva is reading it now and both titles are the ones that I am dying to read!
Mel U wants to read Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel this year. Me too.
Jackie (of Farmlane Book Blog) has Rice Mother in her pile and it scares both of us off with the size of it.
In Wolf and Non-wolfish Reading, Richard announced his wolfish reading plan and discussion for this year, but I’ll be looking out for these two months:
- June: Junot Díaz’s The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao (hosted by Claire) – I picked this one up last year and put it down and can’t get past the first chapter. Not sure what will convince me to wade through the unfamiliar Spanish terms without losing the plot. I felt as if I am missing something here.
- July: Orhan Pamuk’s Snow (hosted by E.L. Fay) – I might join in to read and discuss Snow.
and I will be reading Norwegian Wood and South of Border, West of the Sun for Murakami Challenge this year.
Did I miss any book titles that we may have a common interest in? One that you want to read this year? Feel free to join in on my mini-read along!
