I pinched this from Musings from the Sofa.

The Rules:

  • Bold what you have read
  • Italicise books started but not finished
  • Strike through books hated
  • Add an asterisk to books read more than once
  • Underline books on your tbr list

So here goes:

  • Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell
  • Anna Karenina
  • Crime and Punishment
  • Catch-22*
  • One Hundred Years of Solitude
  • Wuthering Heights
  • The Silmarillion*
  • Life of Pi
  • The Name of the Rose*
  • Don Quixote
  • Moby Dick
  • Ulysses
  • Madame Bovary
  • The Odyssey
  • Pride and Prejudice
  • Jane Eyre
  • A Tale of Two Cities
  • The Brothers Karamazov
  • Guns, Germs and Steel
  • War and Peace
  • Vanity Fair
  • The Time Traveller’s Wife
  • The Iliad
  • Emma
  • The Blind Assassin
  • The Kite Runner
  • Mrs Dalloway*
  • Great Expectations
  • American Gods
  • A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius (though hate is probably a bit too strong….)
  • Atlas Shrugged
  • Reading Lolita in Tehran
  • Memoirs of a Geisha
  • Middlesex
  • Quicksilver
  • Wicked
  • The Canterbury Tales
  • The Historian
  • A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man
  • Love in the Time of Cholera
  • Brave New World
  • The Fountainhead
  • Foucault’s Pendulum
  • Middlemarch
  • Frankenstein
  • The Count of Monte Cristo
  • Dracula*
  • A Clockwork Orange
  • Anansi Boys
  • The Once and Future King (planning to re-read this as part of The Arthurian Challenge)
  • The Grapes of Wrath
  • The Poisonwood Bible
  • 1984
  • Angels and Demons
  • The Inferno
  • The Satanic Verses
  • Sense and Sensibility
  • The Picture of Dorian Gray
  • Mansfield Park
  • One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
  • To the Lighthouse*
  • Tess of the D’Urbervilles
  • Oliver Twist
  • Gulliver’s Travels
  • Les Miserables
  • The Corrections
  • The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay
  • The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time
  • Dune*
  • The Prince*
  • The Sound and the Fury
  • Angela’s Ashes
  • The God of Small Things
  • A People’s History of the United States
  • Cryptonomicon
  • Neverwhere
  • A Confederacy of Dunces
  • A Short History of Nearly Everything
  • Dubliners
  • The Unberable Lightness of Being
  • Beloved
  • Slaughterhouse Five*
  • The Scarlet Letter
  • Eats, Shoots & Leaves
  • The Mists of Avalon (planning to read this as part of The Arthurian Challenge)
  • Oryx and Crake
  • Collapse
  • Cloud Atlas
  • The Confusion
  • Lolita
  • Persuasion
  • Northanger Abbey
  • The Catcher in the Rye
  • On the Road
  • The Hunchback of Notre Dame
  • Freakonomics
  • Zen and the Art of Motocycle Maintenance
  • The Aeneid
  • Watership Down
  • Gravity’s Rainbow
  • The Hobbit*
  • In Cold Blood
  • White Teeth
  • Treasure Island
  • David Copperfield
  • The Three Musketeers

Result (rough count, not validated!): books read = 38, books hated = 1, on my tbr list = 14 (though between us the Book God and I have some of the others, they’re just not on my radar at the moment) and books unfinished =  5 (and look how many of these are by Jane Austen, oh dear)

Scottish, in my fifties, love books but not always able to find the time to read them as much as I would like. I’m based in London and happily married to the Book God.

I also blog at Bride of the Screen God (all about movies and TV) and The Dowager Bride, if you are interested in ramblings about stuff of little consequence
