The Reading List

Friday, February 8, 2013

When you're pregnant, there's nothing people tell you more than "get ready not to have any time to yourself." Or some variation of that. So I am enjoying the freedom while I can and have decided that one of my big to-do's that's not related to the nursery or pregnancy books is reading for pleasure. I made a massive list of the books I want to read (and actually own) and since people are always asking me what to read next, this is what I'm reading.

The Irresistable Revolution- Shane Claiborne
Boy- Roald Dahl*
Suite Francaise- Irene Nemirovsky

Special Topics in Calamity Physics- Marisha Pessl
Love Wins- Rob Bell
Lucrezia Borgia- Sarah Bradford
The Corrections- Jonathan Franzen
The Believers- Zoe Heller
