Deciding what to read next...
I usually have an idea of what I'd like to read next. This year I've joined a Book Club so I'd normally read a Book Club book next, except that I'm not interested in reading the brick of a book that's our current read (Shantaram), and I have to borrow the next book (The Book Thief) from a friend, which I haven't done yet.
I've just finished reading The Secret Lives of Dresses which was lovely. I wish we had a shop like that in Canberra. I'm so inspired to wear 50s day dresses now! Before that I read The Secret Life of Bees. Bizarre - it was a total coincidence that I read those two back to back! And for the record, they don't share a secret life.
So I'm looking at my big pile of books waiting to be read...
All of these books I either received as a gift or I bought at an Op Shop. So I'd love to know which book you'd choose next from this pile. Any you're keen to read, or have already read?
This is what's in the pile...
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
The Girl who Played with Fire
The Girl who Kicked the Hornet's Nest
The Man in the Iron Mask
The Murrumbidgee Kid
Murder on the Orient Express
The Tenant of Wildfell Hall
The Bridges of Madison County
Like Water for Chocolate
The Phantom of the Opera
The Lovely Bones
The Da Vinci Code
The Distant Hours
Great Horror Stories
Sherlock Holmes is huge - the complete works, novels and short stories. I usually read one of the short stories between books so I am slowly getting thru that one. I love Sherlock Holmes.
Great Horror Stories are short stories too, reprinted from a 1936 book. Tassy and I have read a few of them together, they're not scary and so far are all a bit disappointing!
So, what do you think I should read next?
