My To-Read List for 2013-14

Since I'm one of those types that just loves planning things in advance and making lists here's my "To-Read List". If I've placed an R symbol next to a book that means it's a re-read. This list is intended to keep me occupied for the end of this year and the whole of the next - but in all probability I've been muuuch too ambitious and it might take up a good chunk of 2015 as well! Anyway, if you're interested in knowing what I'll be reading over the next year it's probably going to be one of those titles...

THANK YOU! I always love your feedback. Well, I love ALL feedback but I very much appreciate yours :)

It looks like you've read quite a few of the books that I'm planning on reading then. I'm impressed! Are there any books on the list that I should be very excited about?

Hamlette said...

Hmm. I'd say be most excited about "The Eyre Affair" (hilarious!) and "The Princess Bride" (hilarious too!). "Eragon" is enjoyable, and the series improves dramatically as it goes along. "Pygmalion" is fun too, especially if you're familiar with "My Fair Lady."

Hamlette said...

Oh, haha! I see now that "The Princess Bride" is a re-read for you. So you already know that one's awesome :-)

Hannah said...

Oh yes, I'm well aware of the awesomeness of The Princess Bride (the book and the film) :)
