Surprisingly I do keep a reading list, even if there are times I completely ignore it and get distracted by something else. (That happens freque… Squirrel!)
You get the point.
But there are certainly a list of books that I’m not already in the middle of reading that I want to tackle in the nearish future, and since I don’t have a book review prepared for you today, I thought I might give you a preview of things you might see cropping up later in the year. (If you ever want to go through reviews I’ve done in the past, don’t forget to check out my Book Reviews page that has links to them all.)
Please keep in mind that I’m sure there will be reviews for things you don’t see here, and things you see here may also not get reviewed. But it’s summertime! The great time of reading and relaxation! Err…. once we get the house put together a little better anyway. Still, I’m greatly looking forward to having a porch to sit on while enjoying a book again instead of a concrete staircase with loud children running up and down it…. (yay apartments!)
In no particular order…..
Memnoch the Devil by Anne Rice
Needful Things by Stephen King
Misery by Stephen King
The Night Angel Trilogy by Brent Weeks
1Q84 by Haruki Murakami
House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski
The Space Trilogy by C.S. Lewis
The Wheel of Time Series by Robert Jordan / Brandon Sanderson (I’ve read the first 3 books once upon a time, but I need to start over because it’s been too long. And this is one of my husband’s all-time favorites that I’ve been promising to read forever…)
I guess there’s kind of an overwhelming fantasy/dark theme going on with that list. I promise there are brighter things I’m in the middle of reading too!
What are you reading? Do you have any suggestions of favorite books? I’m open to most genres (except Westerns or Romance unless it’s got a really great plot). Let me know!
