Actually, I do genuinely like this idea. It’s incredibly unlikely I’ll actually stick to this as whenever I make a list of books to read I never want to read from it, but we’ll see. I’m 44% of the way through 11.22.63 already though, so hopefully that will be at least one to cross off the list. As for the others –
Life of Pi by Yann Martel – I’ve been meaning to read this for a while, not just because there’s a film coming out. That said, I would like to have it finished by the UK release date of mid-December.
Bad Angels by Rebecca Chance – This was an unsolicited review book, but I’ve started seeing this author’s books everywhere, so they must be worthwhile. I haven’t read any chicklit for ages, but I’m looking forward to abandoning the Law crap and curling up with this.
The End of Mr Y by Scarlett Thomas – I’ve actually had this book for ages and I’ve been planning all along to use it for my TBR Pile Reading Challenge, but I’m even more excited about it now I’ve read Our Tragic Universe. I know it has more of a Science-y theme, but I’m looking forward to immersing myself in the chatty prose again.
The Heroes of Olympus: The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan – I adored the original Percy Jackson series, although I have to admit to not really being that enamoured of the first book in this set. Still, I’ve heard this book is better and I recently bought the one after this for £5, so I need to get cracking!
Am I the only one who took the photo above really quickly so that I didn’t forget where the books belonged in my chronologically ordered TBR shelf?
Morganville Vampires #5: Lord of Misrule by Rachel Caine
What’s Left Of Me by Kat Zhang
Godmother: The Secret Cinderella Story by Carolyn Turgeon
I finished 11.22.63, even if I still can’t get the numbers in the right order without concentrating really hard. It’s easily the best book I’ve read all year and everybody in the entire world should read it right now.
The looming challenge deadlines kind of distracted me from this pile, I think. I don’t really mind if I don’t finish the ones I’ve signed up to, but I’m still making a little bit of a surge at the end! Both Lord of Misrule and Godmother are for the TBR Challenge (I’m on about 30 so far – not too bad, even though my target was 50), but the latter can be put towards the Telling Tales Challenge as well.
