Reading List 2015

I’ve decided it’s about time to rediscover books.

You know that crazy kid at school who used to sit in the corner and read all through lunch time? That was me. However, when it came to being at university, I felt guilty every time I picked up a novel rather than a text book.

This year, I’ve set myself a challenge to read at least one book a month. Not a huge challenge. But enough to rekindle a lost love (and an excuse to finally read the charity shop purchases that have been sitting on the shelf for far too long…)

January: The Luminaries- Eleanor Catton

February: The Kite Runner – Khaled Hosseini

March: Memoirs of a Geisha – Arthur Golden

April: The No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency – Alexander McCall Smith

May: The Miniaturist – Jessie Burton

June: The Book Thief – Markus Zusak

June: Animal Farm – George Orwell

July: H is for Hawk – Helen MacDonald

August: Go Set a Watchman – Harper Lee

September: A Walk in the Woods – Bill Bryson

October: Pride and Prejudice – Jane Austen

For later in the year:

  • The Buried Giant – Kazuo Ishiguro
  • 1984 – George Orwell
  • As the Earth Turns Silver – Alison Wong
  • Last Train to Istanbul – Ayse Kulin
