I enjoyed Oracle Night, The Danger of Proximal Alphabets, The Weed That Strings the Hangman's Bag, and Monsters of Men immensely. In fact, I'd say Oracle Night and Weed are two highlights from the year. Further evidence that these lists work beautifully for me.
Sorry for the slightly fuzzy pic! These are the choices on my Spring TBR (March 20 - June 20).
- Small Wonder: Essays by Barbara Kingsolver because I loved Animal, Vegetable, Miracle and I think this collection will give me a springy feeling. - DNF
- Fingersmith by Sarah Waters because I can always count on Waters to blow my socks off, and everyone says this is her best.
- Sula by Toni Morrison because I'm still trying to diversify my reading and Morrison is just amazing.
- A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray because I enjoyed The Diviners and this book has been on my stacks for an embarrassingly long time.
- Les Miserables by Victor Hugo because classics! And I'm super excited to be reading this one along with Jennifer (@BHoNeg on Twitter). - in progress
- Kamouraska by Anne Hebert because this was part of the lovely package Lydia sent my way at Christmas and it looks amazing. See also: diversifying my reading. Oh Canada!
- A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki because I bought the damn thing and haven't read it yet. It was a must-have-it-now purchase.
- Wise Children by Angela Carter because Carter is always a good idea.
Bastard Out of Carolina by Dorothy Allisonbecause everyone needs to cry their eyes out sometime, right?
- The House Girl by Tara Conklin (not pictured) because I mentioned it earlier this week. Readalongs! - DNF
Whew! Will I be able to divide and conquer? I think I can, I think I can!
Here's wishing you a kickass bunch of spring reading!
