Booklist ’10

I’ve had my booklist for next year building quite rapidly over the last few months. As cliche as it sounds, there really are so many books I want to read! It’s the joy and curse of reading.

There’s so much enjoyment in reading through discovery and experience, then extend that to an endless amount of topics and the potential of books to read is limitless!

My goal is to read a few books that have been sitting on my shelf awhile, return to some favorites, and focus on women’s issues. It’s quite extensive (and a bit daunting) and I’m pretty confident I won’t get to all of them. These are just some of the books that have caught my eye over the last year.

Here’s where my list stands as of now:

Fiction

The Scarlett Letter, Nathaniel Hawthorne

Little Dorrit, Charles Dickens

A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens

Eight Cousins, Lousia May Alcott

The Making of a Marchioness, Frances Hodgson Burnett

The Opposite of Love, Julie Buxbaum

Catch-22, Joseph Heller

1984, George Orwell

A Brave New World, Aldous Huxley

Well-Behaved Women Seldom Make History, Laurel Thatcher Ulrich
