The Book-a-day Challenge! – 21. To be read

10402932_10154850422220371_6107946694406976450_n (1)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

1202712A 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.

  1. Our book group read Norwegian Wood awhile back. It is a pretty easy read as far as Murakami goes and we all enjoyed it very much though the subject matter is a bit dark. The descriptions of the forest are some of the most beautiful I have ever read. Have never forgotten it. Be interested to hear what you think of it if you do read it. We are reading Murakami’s The Wind Up Bird Chronicle for Feb. book group. The jury’s still out but so far so good.
