Winter 2019 Reading List

 

Every girl needs her squad and every squad needs to read the books recommended to her by the others in her squad so that she may come to understand them and appreciate their taste better. It’s getting towards the end of the year, a time when I’m itching to return things I’ve borrowed anyway, so this winter I figured I’d finally get down to reading all of the books my girlfriends have gifted or loaned me (and try not to read too much into their choices).

  1. The Lotus Effect by Pavel G. Somov
  2. Skinny Girls by Lesley-Anne Bourne
  3. A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose by Eckhart Tolle
  4. We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver
  5. Song of Solomon by Toni Morrison

Summer 2018 Reading List

I’m often the butt of jokes in my social circle because I haven’t seen a lot of iconic movies (Goodfellas, Psycho, etc.) but when it comes to reading the classics I’ve got most of them beat. I read a lot of classical literature when I was a teenager and in recent years I’ve made more of an effort to include some of these older titles on my reading lists.

Now that I have more time on my hands this summer, I’m challenging myself to include more classics on my reading list, both old and modern, all critically celebrated, featuring authors that are new-to-me. Even you might be surprised to learn that I haven’t read some of the titles on my bookshelf this month.

No spoilers, please. Let me catch up first and then we’ll talk.

  1. One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
  2. House of Mirth by Edith Wharton
  3. Barney’s Version by Mordecai Richler
  4. Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys
  5. Last Orders by Graham Swift
