Which means I’ll be reading Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier.  I’ve been wanting to read it for awhile, but I’ve been putting it off in the hopes of reading it for RIP.  I honestly don’t know if I will finish it since I’ve been an extremely moody reader lately.  I’m also in the middle of several other books.  I’ll try though because I have just a little more than a year to finish the 50 book challenge.

  1. Kafka, Franz: The Trial
  2. Lawrence, D.H.: Lady Chatterley’s Lover
  3. Du Maurier, Daphne: Rebecca
  4. Barrie, J.M.: Peter Pan
  5. Beckett, Samuel: Waiting for Godot
  6. Remarque: All Quiet on the Western Front
  7.  Melville, Herman: Moby Dick
  8. Bronte, Anne: Agnes Grey
  9. Proust, Marcel: Swann’s Way
  10. Gogol, Nikolay: Dead Souls
  11. Eliot, George: Middlemarch
  12. Hawthorne, Nathaniel: The Scarlet Letter
  13. Heller, Joseph: Catch-22
  14. Hemingway, Ernest: A Farewell to Arms
  15. Cooper, James Fenimore: The Last of the Mohicans
  16. Crane, Stephen: Red Badge of Courage
  17. Hugo, Victor: The Hunchback of Notre Dame
  18. Irving, Washington: The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

Which means I’ll be reading The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett.  While it wasn’t the book I really wanted, it will be a quick, easy read and that’s probably a good thing right now.  I’m in the middle of reading The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien and it is definitely not light reading.

  1. Kafka, Franz: The Trial
  2. Lawrence, D.H.: Lady Chatterley’s Lover
  3. Du Maurier, Daphne: Rebecca
