Answer: This week we’re being asked to look into our crystal balls and forecast our fall reading endeavors. Tricky business to say with certainty, but we (Evan) do have more than a few titles we’re looking forward to...
1. The Chronicles of Narnia (C.S. Lewis) - It’s been far too long since we went through this series. We started The Magician’s Nephew this week and hope to finish the series before winter.
2. Birdsong (Sebastian Faulks) – Don’t have a clue what this novel is about, but at number 13, it’s the highest ranked unread novel for us on the BBC list. Hope it’s good.
3. Night Watch (Terry Pratchett) – The changing seasons just wouldn’t feel right without a Discworld novel to get excited about.
4. A Game of Thrones (George R. R. Martin) – It’s finally time to check out this series and make sure it lives up to all the hype. We hope so!
5. Wolves of the Calla (Stephen King) – We took a nice long sabbatical after Wizard and Glass, but this fall will be the perfect time to get back to the Dark Tower series.
6. Schindler’s List (Thomas Keneally) – A little apprehensive to take on such a weighty read, but it’s already on the schedule for the Books to Movies Challenge!
7. Thank You, Jeeves (P.G. Wodehouse) – Need to schedule a good laugh to offset the sad fact that summer is gone... Jeeves and Wooster are the perfect solution.
8. Gormenghast (Mervyn Peake) – We felt very underwhelmed by book 1 in this series, but we’re hopeful redemption lies somewhere within book 2.
9. The Kalahari Typing School for Men (Alexander McCall Smith) – Love The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series and can’t wait to continue on to book 4.
10. Unbroken (Laura Hillenbrand) – Need to throw something uplifting into the mix and this book has come highly recommended from several reliable sources.
Have a great week and head on over to The Broke and the Bookish to join the fun!
