I hope to read these prize winners or contenders in 2013:
Song of Achilles
A Spell of Winter
The Night Watch and/or The Little Stranger
Three of these are left over from last year's intentions...but let's see how I do. New year, new start.
I will be reading Song of Achilles along with you provided my number comes up in the Library queue soon enough.
I hope you love the other three as much as I did. A Spell of Winter was a solid 5 * read for me while the other two were 4 & 4 1/2 * respectively.
I have you starred and will be checking back in January.
Here is to 2013,
Ive read all four on your list, and all are good. I am partial to the Sarah Waters' novels as you can't go wrong with her books.
And raider, when Jill took her little survey seems most of the responses were as you feel. Keep it Orange January and Orange July. After all, what is in a name? A lot!
Anyway my reading time has gone to pot this summer too. I have only managed one Orange thus far, When We Were Bad. I am hoping to get another couple in by month's end but don't see it happening at this point. However I refuse to wish Winter back although I can hardly wait for Football Season this Fall.
I am going to have to see if my library has My Promised Land: The Triumph and Tragedy of Israel. I went over to the book page and this one sounds like a truly wonderful read. Thanx for the reck.
#16 Daughter has read it once already; I'm eager to get into it, having read the Prologue. I just need to find blocks of reading time, and am frustrated that I'm not doing so. Funny, I don't remember MY baby sleeping a lot during those first weeks. Seems like I'd just think she was down for a while, start doing something (or napping myself) and she'd wake up again. Partly why she's an only!
Linda, my library has now ordered two copies of the book and I am number 2 in the queue. Yea me!~! Thank you so much.
I was unaware that Mists of Avalon was 7th in a series by Bradley until last night. Have you read the others? Just wondering if they can be read as stand-alones.
