My first semester of grad school is officially finished so back to the list!
I had to take a break from Mrs. Dalloway. To be continued.
Up Next: The Children’s Hour by Lillian Hellman in anticipation of watching the movie with Audrey Hepburn and Shirley MacLaine
Then: A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens (because CHRISTMAS)(someone lost my library’s copy)
and The Kitchen Boy: A Novel of the Last Tsar by Robert Alexander (because ANASTASIA)(can’t find it anywhere…)
Latest update: Just finished The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides (officially one of my new favorites)
Up next: Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides (new favorite author alert)
I’ve been in a book-reading rut lately, so I’ve decided to tackle Rory Gilmore’s Book List, as compiled by Australian writer Patrick Lenton. And Buzzfeed. It was a little alarming to realize I haven’t read some classics, like Alice in Wonderland and Pride and Prejudice. But I do have somewhat of a head-start. Since the list is in alphabetical and not chronological order, I feel okay about skipping around.
First up: The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay by Michael Chabon
Second: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Third: In Cold Blood by Truman Capote (slight veer to
Breakfast at Tiffany’s first)
Fourth: Franny and Zooey by J.D. Salinger
Fifth: Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf
1984 by George Orwell Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
- Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay by Michael Chabon
- An American Tragedy by Theodore Dreiser
