It's that time of the week again. Thanks to the good folks at The Broke and the Bookish for hosting this meme, which is always fun. My track record for following through with reading lists has been rather spotty to say the least but surprisingly, I have doing pretty well so far this year. I'm keeping up with several of the reading challenges (even ahead in some despite the lack of reviews). There are so many novels that I anxiously want to read this spring but of course, time is a factor. Here is my tentative list (in no particular order):
1. Player of Games by Iain M. Banks: The EPIC space-opera of Banks' Culture Series continues. Even with its flaws, I thoroughly enjoyed the first installment and it was a perfect set-up for what might just turn out be one the more ambitious and highly entertaining Science-Fiction sagas ever.
8. North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell: Another novel for both the Reading England and Classics Club Challenge. Score. Hey, doesn't the gentleman on the cover look like Matthew Mcconaughey?
