Lists

What would we do without them? I like lists, all kinds of lists - To Do list, Shopping list, "Don't Forget" list, Christmas presents and cards list, holiday packing list and so on, the list is endless! Please excuse the pun! So without further ado these are some of my ongoing lists.

A Good Read
Rabbit Proof Fence by Doris Pilkington – very good
White Tiger by Aravind Adiga – excellent
Portrait of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde – excellent story and characters but tedious in places
White Teeth by Zadie Smith – excellent
Red Lotus by Pai Kit Fai – a beautiful story
Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger - very good
The Troublesome Offspring of Cardinal Zuzman by Louis de Bernieres – tried a couple of times to read this but couldn’t get into it, but when I did I thought it was excellent, quirky and very funny. Had to make notes of all the characters!
Untorn Tickets by Paul Burke - very good
Dark Places by Gillian Flynn – excellent
The Millenium Trilogy by Stieg Larsson: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo; The Girl Who Played With Fire; The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest - all three were absolutely brilliant, didn’t want to put them down
The Tiger’s Wife by Téa Obreht – very good
The Kitchen God’s Wife by Amy Tan – excellent
The Kashmir Shawl by Rosie Thomas – excellent, poignant
Long Way Down by Nick Hornby – brilliant, hilarious
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes - very good
Millroy the Magician by Paul Theroux – excellent
The Night Strangers by Chris Bohjalian – very good
Before I Go to Sleep by SJ Watson – excellent
A Cat, a Hat and a Piece of String - Short stories by Joanne Harris. This was a book group choice, I don’t usually like short stories, but I enjoyed these.

The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver - excellent
