Yes, I know we’re almost halfway through February, but I’ve had a busy year so far (I’ve made a new website for starters – what do you think?).
So I decided that this year would be the year of reading books I’ve always meant to read, but haven’t got around to. Plus I wanted to read (or reread, I can’t remember which I’ve already read) Maya Angelou’s books. So here’s the list.
A Wrinkle in Time – Madeleine L’Engle
Anne of Green Gables – LM Montgomery
The Beauty Myth – Naomi Wolf
The Bell Jar – Sylvia Plath
The Golden Notebook – Doris Lessing
The Grapes of Wrath – John Steinbeck
Herland – Charlotte Perkins Gilman
The Ocean at the End of the Lane – Neil Gaiman (the only Gaiman I’ve read is Coraline and everyone tells me I need to read more)
The Wee Free Men – Terry Pratchett
Maya Angelou’s memoirs (I read the latest last year):
I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings
Gather Together in My Name
Singin’ and Swingin’ and Gettin’ Merry Like Christmas
The Heart of a Woman
All God’s Children Need Traveling Shoes
A Song Flung Up to Heaven
I’m also going to try to read some of the books on Oprah’s 40 books before 40 list (even though I’m 42).
Do you have any reading goals this year? What are the books you’ve always meant to read, but haven’t got round to… yet?
