Holiday Reading List

Mr Good, Miss Four, Miss Two and I are about to embark on a much needed family holiday (well at the end of November).  We’re driving all the way to Port Stephens in NSW, staying there for a week then heading back down to the South coast of NSW to stay another week in the family’s cabin near Eden.  Further to that Mr Good has until the the end of the first week of January off work.  Of course as a mandatory part of the planning process I have been contemplating my holiday reading list.  I have an ambitious target – ten more books before the end of the year, which would take my yearly tally up to 30.

So after much contemplation here is my holiday reading list….

1. The Orphan Master’s Son – Adam Johnson

2. Moral Disorder – Margaret Atwood

3. Crossing to Safety – Wallace Stegner

4. The People Smuggler – Robin De Crespigny

5. A Place in the Country – Laura Shaine Cunningham

6. Cairo – Chris Womersley

7. The End of your Life Book Club – Will Schwalbe

8. The Messenger – Markus Zusak

9. Reading Lolita in Tehran – Azar Nafisi

10. Marching Powder – Rusty Young

There are some pretty hefty tomes among this list and some pretty heavy topics, I perhaps should have considered a few short sharp reads, but nonetheless this is what I’ve settled on.  I can only try.

Now it’s time to share what’s on your summer reading list.  Have you got a pile sitting beside the bed itching to get opened and poured over?  Or perhaps you’ve read something great recently that I can put on my list for next year?

    If you’re looking for something in the murder mystery genre, try the Inspector Armand Gamache series by Louise Penny, a very good read. Enjoy your holiday!
