This Spring we’ve got a lot on our plate. My little boy is turning five, we’re buying our first house and… really, do I need more than that to say I’ll be busy?
I hope to spend this Spring unpacking, playing the with the kids in our new back yard and find new cozy reading nooks in our first house! To keep my reading on track, per usual I’m making a list of the books I hope to read this Spring. Wanna see?
Well first and foremost, here are the three books my book club will be reading this Spring:
- The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón
- The Imperfectionists by Tom Rachman
- The Glass Castle: A Memoir by Jeanette Walls
- The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz
I also plan to read at least some of the following:
- The Help by Katheryn Stockett
- Such a Pretty Fat by Jen Lancaster
- Anne of Windy Poplars (kindle edition) by L.M. Montgomery
- Much Ado About Anne (kindle edition) by Heather Vogel Frederick
I’ll also be reading and reviewing Heads You Lose by Lisa Lutz which comes out April 5th!! You might know Lutz’s hysterical Spellman Files series – one of my favorite mystery series ever. I’m really looking forward to getting my hands on this book and will probably have to push a few things aside to devote my attention to it. Because we are moving this Spring, I’m planning to not request many review books for a couple of months, but this one I couldn’t resist.
For my classics challenge, in addition to Anne of Windy Poplars, I also want to read two other classics, of which I am considering:
But it seems like when it comes to the classics, I tend to sift through several choices and go with whichever grabs me so really my goal is to read at least three classics this spring.
And of course, you know I love to change my mind bunches when it comes to reading, depending on my whims and any new hot books that might cross my eye. So fair warning, that I might be changing this list between now and June 20th when the challenge ends – so …
Specific titles aside, my goal this Spring is: to read my four book club selections, three classics, Heads You Lose and and at least two other books, making ten in total.
What will you be reading this Spring?
May 12, 2011 – As of today I have finished five books out of the ten I hope to read this spring. I did not finish Anne of Windy Poplars and do not think I’ll read the May book club pick, The Glass Castle but I have plenty of books on my nightstand both mental and physical and I’m still hoping to finish the challenge before summer starts, though it will be no easy feat I’m sure!
