Another list

I've been working on a really difficult post over the last few days, and I just can't get it right. So instead, I give you another list. Lists are something that N makes fun of me about all the time. I love making lists and I have at least four different notebooks filled with them... here's my most recent list of library books:

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey which I'd always meant to read and am loving now that I am reading it. I didn't realise how much I missed home but while reading this, my heart jumped at every reference to the Pacific Northwest that I recognised. I do miss Oregon.

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak which I picked up this morning - I was shocked to see it there on the shelf, I was expecting it to not be available for a few months! I can't wait to read it and might bump another title off the list to read this sooner!

The New York Trilogy by Paul Auster - I remember SOMEONE I used to know raved about Paul Auster, I just can't remember who. At someone's blog (I am so sorry, I have no idea which one!) I saw a list (yes, another one!) of the 1001 books to read before you die, and this made it on the list. I thought 'oh why not?' and thought I'd try a few titles...

The Feast of the Goat by Mario Vargas Llosa another title from the 1001 list, I was sucked in just by reading the first page but may not get around to reading it...

Jennifer Government by Max Barry picked up for the Dystopian Challenge

and also featuring my latest acquisitions via charity shops and readitswapit:

Behind the Scenes at the Museum by Kate Atkinson I have no idea how or why I got it into my head that I wanted to read this book! Possibly a review on someone's blog?

How Opal Mehta Got Kissed Got Wild and Got a Life by Kaavya Viswanathan just to see what all the fuss was about...


  1. David F used to love Paul Auster and rave about those books all the time.

    I lvoe books lists so keep them coming

  2. I recently read The Book Thief and loved it so much.

    I have Behind the Scenes on my TBR challenge list, and want to read Opal Mehta too.
