Back in January, I listed the books I was planning on reading this year. Let’s take this opportunity to review:
(The titles crossed out are the ones I’ve read.)
Catherine the Great by Robert K. Massie. Er. Not too sure I will in fact be reading this book anymore.
The Creation of Patriarchy by Gerda Lerner. Been looking for it, not going great.
Daughters of Isis by Joyce A. Tyldesley.
Den vita staden [The white city] by Karolina Ramqvist. I’ve got it in my Storytel bookshelf, one of these days…
Det är något som inte stämmer [Something’s not right] by Martina Haag. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. Girl in a Band by Kim Godon.
Grejen med verb [The thing about verbs] by Sara Lövenstam. If I can be bothered reading on a screen..
Grundläggande studier i hoppfullhet och hopplöshet by Linn Spross. Again, that reading on a screen thing.
Hawthorne by Carol Goodman.
The Heart Goes Last by Margaret Atwood.
Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling. Mr Darcy’s Diary by Amanda Grange.
The Opposite of Fate by Amy Tan.
Spectacles by Sue Perkins. Vad ska en flicka göra? [What’s a girl to do?] by Annika Lantz.
Århundradets kärlekskrig [The love war of the century] by Ebba Witt-Brattström.
Norrland by PO Tidholm.
Difficult Women by Roxane Gay. In the middle of it!
The H-Spot: The Feminist Persuit of Happiness by Jill Filipovic.
House of Names by Colm Tóibín. I did start listening to it. I don’t know what to say. There is no way I can get through it.
I’m really good at making lists; less good at following through. I like to make lists, and then do something else.
In this case. I want to blame always finding new books that I’m insanely interested in. Couple of recent additions:
John Green’s Turtles All the Way Down. Why? I saw someone give it a terrible review; this always makes v. v. interested! It’s the main reason I read Twilight; everyone seemed to hate it.
Naomi Klein’s No Is Not Enough. Because it feels as if reading Klein is doing something good for your health.
Basically, my current TBR is the bookshelf in my book streaming service.
