Autumn 2012 Reading List

I enjoy making lists, but I love making book lists. Now that summer's basically over, I thought I'd create a nice, ambitious reading list for the fall ...Maybe too ambitious...

New Additions to the Library for Autumn Reading:
  • David Sedaris' Naked
  • Frank McCourt's Angela's Ashes
  • J.D. Salinger's Franny and Zooey
  • John Irving's The World According to Garp
  • Annie Barrows &  Mary Ann Shaffer's The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
  • Erin Morgenstern's The Night Circus
  • Diane Wynne Jones' Howl's Moving Castle
  • Ellen Raskin's The Westing Game
  • Norton Juster's The Phantom Tollbooth
  • Vera Brosgol's Anya's Ghost
  • Alison Bechdel's Fun Home
  • Art Spiegelman's Maus I
  • Art Spiegelman's Maus II
  • Daniel Clowes' Ghost World
  • Mark Gatiss' The Vesuvius Club Graphic Novel
  • Sabrina Jones' Isadora Duncan
  • Mat Johnson's Right State

Leftovers from Summer Reading List that I'd Still Like to Read:
  • Max Brooks’ World War Z
  • Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451
  • Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Shadow
  • Ursula K. Le Guin’s A Wizard of Earthsea
  • John Kennedy Toole’s A Confederacy of Dunces

Leftovers from Summer Reading List that I Don't Particularly Feel Like Reading but Still Might Read:
  • Richard Adams’ Watership Down
  • Susan Beth Pfeffer’s Life As We Knew It
  • Haruki Murakami's Norwegian Wood
  • Yann Martel's Life of Pi   
  • Kim Edwards' The Memory Keeper's Daughter
  • Ann Brashare’s My Name is Memory
  • Diane Setterfield’s The Thirteenth Tale
  • Markus Zusak's I Am the Messenger
  • Sharon Creech’s The Wanderer
  • Natalie Babbitt's The Search for Delicious

Ahhh, that's some satisfying book listing. I suspect I'm pretty much setting myself up for failure to attempt to read all of these books in the next three months, but we shall see. Either way, it's my idea of a good time.
