Day 13: A Fictional Book (That Turned Into My “To Read” List for 2011)

Perfect Peace by Daniel Black

Hmmmm…..  I’m not really certain what I’m supposed to write about here.  This is such a broad topic.  Should I write about a fictional book that I hated or loved?  One that was life changing for me?  A book that I could have gone my whole life without reading?  *sound of book pages blowing in the wind as I ponder the possibilities*

Honestly, I think I covered all of my favorite books on Day 4, so I’ll just make a list of  fictional books that I’d like to read in 2011.

I’ve put them in alphabetical order by author because, well, you know, there has to be some sort of order here:

  1. Perfect Peace by Daniel Black
  2. Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosnay
  3. Room by Emma Donoghue
  4. Beautiful and Damned by F. Scott Fitzgerald
  5. The False Friend by Myla Goldberg
  6. A Reliable Wife by Robert Goolrick
  7. Saving CeeCee Honeycutt:  A Novel by Beth Hoffman
  8. Lady Chatterley’s Lover by D. H. Lawrence
  9. The Hand that First Held Mine by Maggie O’Farrell
  10. Doctor Zhivago by Boris Pasternak
  11. Some Sing Some Cry by Ntozake Shange and Ifa Bayeza
  12. The Shack by William Paul Young

I’ve chosen the books above for a variety of reasons ~ some because they’re classics and I’ve never read them, others because they were recommended by various book clubs and the rest because the synopsis grabbed my attention.  My goal is to read one book per month and write a review, hopefully, this will work out.  Since I have the Nook app on my Android and I’ve downloaded Nook for PC, I really don’t have any excuses for not having my books with me.

What is your must read book for 2011?

Disclosure:  All of the books link to the Nookbook® versions of the titles on the Barnes and Noble website.  I do not receive any compensation should you decide to purchase the book.  I’m simply providing a link so you can read the summaries.
