Today sees the ultimate challenge, no doubt designed to spur my brain on and keep me awake to see Christmas out. Out of all the books I want….no….need to read right now this minute, which one tops the charts? Gulp.
21. To be read
A serious toss up between this; Donna Tartt’s The Secret History, or Murakami’s classic; Norwegian Wood. Now, I love Murakami and his twisted blend of Japanese magical realism but I haven’t read anything of his for quite a while and his second to last offering; 1Q84, was a bit of a damp squib for me (I didn’t even make it beyond book one). The book group read The Goldfinch a few months ago that left me, and almost everyone else, completely spellbound. Her first novel is supposed to be even better. I’ll believe it when I read it.
