Here's who/what I'm planning to catch up on in the coming months:
- John Irving, though I haven't decided which book yet. He may also be publishing a new one in the fall, which I'm very excited about.
- Graham Greene, either The Third Man or Travels With My Aunt.
- Alice Munro, Dear Life
- Khaled Hosseini, And The Mountains Echoed
- Judy Blume, In The Unlikely Event. I'm so excited for this one! Here's a great interview with Blume about this novel/
- Malcolm Gladwell, The Tipping Point. Oddly enough, I have yet to read to his very first book.
- Michael Ondaatje, not sure whether to go with something old or something new yet.
- Something fun by Sophie Kinsella
- Agatha Christie, the first book in the Miss Marple series.
That list may be a little too ambitious but we'll see how far I get. There's one favourite missing from the list because she's actually already been done this year (The Bean Trees by Barbara Kingsolver). That's a good start, right?
I've also been dipping into multiple series in the last little while so next time I feel like a good, long, meaty read, I might just tackle the next book in the Outlander or Song of Ice and Fire series. But first, something new: I'll be starting Divergent in the next few days. I've been looking forward to it so here's hoping it lives up to the hype!
Who are some of your favourites? What/who do you go for when you want to guarantee a good read?
