Even though I so enjoy being a free-range reader, I desperately need to organize my reading so I may successfully achieve some of the reading goals and challenges I have set for myself in 2015. To this end, I have decided to compose and follow monthly TBR lists with a determination to not stray from the prescribed reading; I may add to the list but I cannot detract from the list.
To that end, I will be reading the following books in May, in no particular order:
- Be Basic (Genesis 1-11) by Warren Wiersbe
- The Finkler Question by Howard Jacobson This will fulfill #14 for Book Riot’s #ReadHarder Challenge: A National Book Award, Man Booker Prize, or Pulitzer Winner from the last decade. The Finkler Question won the Man Booker Prize in 2010.
- Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen. This will be my first Austen and I am so looking forward to it.
- Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout. This will fulfill #3 for Book Riot’s #ReadHarder Challenge: A collection of short stories (either by one person or an anthology by many people).
- The Well of Ascension by Brandon Anderson. Because of a severe reading slump, I am playing catch up for #YearofCosmere.
- To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. I am reading this classic because I am ashamed I have never read it before.
The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield. I am reading this in response to Frenchiedee’s recommendation to bring me out of my reading slump.
