For the month of January, I finished six books: The Talented Mr. Ripley by Patricia Highsmith, Goldfinger by Ian Fleming as narrated by Simon Vance, Cover Her Face by P.D. James, Laura by Vera Caspray, The Redbreast by Jo Nesbø, Suitable For Giving: A Collection of Wit With A Side of Wry by Jayne Martin. My favorite probably was Nesbø’s book, which although the third in the Harry Hole series was the first translated and published in English (the first two in the series haven’t been published in English yet). I really am looking forward to the rest of the series.
So what’s next? Well, instead of trying to list all of my choices, I thought I’d just show you them all from my recently updated Goodreads to-be-read list (not in order of series — it was complicated enough for me to get them formatted this far– or in order in which I plan on reading):
So where am I going to start? I already have Nesbø’s next book, Nemesis, out from the library so I’ll probably start there. Of course, a friend just returned my copy of Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close that he borrowed from my Nook, which he said he enjoyed, although he didn’t necessarily like the way it was done. So I am tempted by that one and Tina Fey’s Bossypants from Audible, which I downloaded this past weekend.
At this point, I don’t know, but I’ll let you know as soon as I decide. If you are familiar with any of these books, let me know which one or which series I should choose to start. If you aren’t familiar with any of these books, let me know what how your reading went for January and what you have planned for February and the rest of the year?
