The List of Twelve

I got this from Mushy Cloud.

I came across this idea whilst replying to a comment on my blog left by fellow booky-blogger, Irish, yesterday.

The idea is to publish your intended reading list of the next twelve books that meet the specified categories, as listed below. I like the idea of formalising my reading list because I suppose I’m like 95% of other readers and just randomly go from book to book as they take my fancy.

I’m diving into this and invite you to do the same, although I’m tweaking my list slightly to reflect the way I categorise my books. However, please do Irish the honour of linking back to her blog and let her know (and me too!!) how you’re getting on.

Here is my first List of Twelve
  1. Classic: Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
  2. New Release*: The Beautiful Mystery by Louise Penny
  3. Ebook: The Sandcastle Girls by Chris Bohjalian
  4. Series: Morality for Beautiful Girls by Alexander McCall Smith
  5. Library Book: I’m going to come back to this one….not been to the library for a while!!
  6. Review Book: The Crossing Places by Elly Griffiths
  7. Backlist**:  The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien
  8. Re-read: Eats, Shoots & Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation by Lynne Truss
  9. Just Can’t Wait: The Beautiful Mystery by Louise Penny (due out Aug. 18, 2012)
  10. Anything Goes: 
  11. New Release*: Behold a Pale Horse by Peter Tremayne
  12. Off my shelf***: Celebrity in Death by J.D. Robb
*A new release will be any books that are less than a year old
**Backlist titles will be any book older than a year
*** Off my shelf are those books that have been purchased but are still sat on my shelf waiting for me to get round to reading them


About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.
