This challenge is behing hosted by Gabe @ Gabriel Reads and starts on the 1st June 2011.
Those who know me know I am a bit of a book hoarder and have so many books I really should have read by now so this is the perfect challenge for me. I have signed up as a voracious reader which means I pledge to read 3 books a month towards this challenge. With 7 months left in the year, I am compiling a list of 21 books (with a change my mind disclaimer included).
Some of these will be classics and some will be much hyped books where I feel I’m the only person left in the world not having read them (but no Dan Brown). As well are the books I’ve had longer than I can remember and those I rushed out to buy new and then have never read. It’s tough narrowing it down to 21!
I had already added Gormenghast to my list when Jackie @ Farm Lane Books announced a readalong so I’ll be reading the trilogy over a few months. I know, I know, I’m doing an awful job with The Iliad readalong but I do really want to read this.
My final list will be posted at the end of the month!
