Time For Long Awaited Reads Month!!
Yay :D I am so excited about Ana and Iris' Long Awaited Reads Month!!!! In fact, I wish it were more than a month long because as you're about to see, I have much more than a month of reading material prepared for this :p I haven't been this excited about a reading event since Carl's Once Upon a Time and RIP Challenges which are my favorites. Without further ado, here's everything on my list:
Debi's been wanting me to read this one FOREVER and so have I :p
Voice of Our Shadow by Jonathan Carroll - The first Carroll I ever bought and I bought it because of Ana...you'll see soon that many of these books on the stack are because of Ana :p
Little Boy Lost by Marghanita Laski - The Persephone I've been wanting to read most. I'm determined to FINALLY read my first Persephone during this month.
The Beekeeper's Apprentice by Laurie R. King - Been wanting to read this series ever since Pat read and fell in love with it.
Come Closer by Sara Gran - Another one that's Ana's fault
Beloved by Toni Morrison - And yet another one that's Ana's fault...and another one that I've been wanting to read forever.
Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne - I've been wanting to read this since I was like five.
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins - Another Ana fault.
The Secret Fruit of Peter Paddington by Brian Francis - This one went on my list because of Joanne from Book Zombie, a blogger I desperately miss!! And I've been wanting to read it forever.
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer - One of Trish's favorite books and I'm pretty sure it'll become one of mine too. Just have to read it :p
Ella Minnow Pea by Mark Dunn - Don't even know who's fault this one is but I've been wanting to read it forever.
The 10 P.M. Question by Kate De Goldi - Yep, another Ana fault :p
One For Sorrow by Christopher Barzak - This has been on my TBR pile for SO LONG!!! So excited to finally get to it.
Last Chance to See by Douglas Adams and Mark Carwardine - A mix of Ana and Debi's fault.
Daddy Long Legs by Jean Webster - Ana's fault
An Anthropologist on Mars by Oliver Sacks - Rich's fault!! And finally my first Oliver Sacks! I own pretty much all of his books but haven't read a single one yet. Sad..so this will be the time to finally read one!
Pedro Paramo by Juan Rulfo - Sigh, Ana's fault...feeling guilty yet, Ana? :p
Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf - Another one that I've just wanted to read for SO long.
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein - This one hasn't been out all that long but it still feels like I've waited far too long to read it.
Saplings by Noel Streatfeild - Another Persephone. Ana actually gave me this one for Christmas a few Christmas' ago and I've been dying to read it ever since!
We the Animals by Justin Torres - I heard an interview with Justin Torres on the Diane Rehm show about a year ago and went out and got this and it's been on my TBR ever since. Time to read it!!
Think I have enough? In addition to all this, I'll be starting WAR AND PEACE finally!!!! It's been a goal of mine to read that book for years now and the sweet amazing beautiful Amy is hosting a readalong of it this year!! Come join us!
