I’ve just finished The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde, and Kickboxing Geishas by Veronica Chambers about “How modern Japanese women are changing their nation.” I should be posting my thoughts about them in the next few days. Next week, I’ll be reading Toni Morrison’s Song of Solomon together with Another Cookie Crumbles, and I think Claire from Paperback Reader. I’m also reading Lolita with David from Absorbed in Words, and though I’m liking it so far, I’m just not making much progress.
I think it’s time to make another list for the Random Reading Challenge.
- Cutting for Stone – Abraham Verghese
- His Dark Materials – Philip Pullman
- The Graveyard Book – Neil Gaiman
- White is for Witching – Helen Oyeyemi
- Coraline – Neil Gaiman
- Tender Morsels – Margo Lanagan
- The Lost City of Z – David Grann
- We Have Always Lived in This Castle – Shirley Jackson
- A Short History of Myth – Karen Armstrong
- Burnt Shadows – Kamila Shamsie
- The Unit – Ninni Holmqvist
- The Giver – Lois Lowry
- The Anthologist – Nicholson Baker
- A Reliable Wife – Robert Goolrick
So, popping over briefly to random.org, I get….
2. His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman. I’ve heard good things about this book, so I’m looking forward to it. I’m really wanting to read the other books too though… Have you read His Dark Materials? If you have, what did you think about it? And how about the other books on the list? Which one(s) should I pounce on next?
PS: Should I count His Dark Materials as 3 books? Or just the one? It’s technically just ONE book that I’ll be reading, but it’s also technically a trilogy…
