In any case, I thought it might be good for me to see what titles I am saving and put them down on...screen. I also thought you might have some suggestions for other titles to leave until the end. After all, I am approaching the halfway mark and my list is gradually shrinking (I am starting to get to some titles I am not so excited about).
Here they are:
- The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien: It has been years since I've read this one, but I love it.
- The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton: One of my favorite titles ever, so of course I'm saving it.
- The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck: Sadly, this is the last title by Steinbeck on my list (tragic, I know), and since I love him so, I want to save this one.
- Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood: LOVE this book.
- My Antonia by Willa Cather: Cather is a new favorite, but this is one I read before and hated-it could go either way.
- Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens: What!!! A Dickens title! Yep. Quite a few people told me I would love this one, judging by my other tastes, so it will be my last go-around with Dickens for my project.
- Sister Carrie by Theodore Dreiser: I adored An American Tragedy, so I am hoping the same for this one.
- Middlemarch by George Eliot: Eliot is another favorite, so I am saving this one for a bit.
- Tess of the D'Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy: Hardy is another new favorite, and this title seems to be a favorite among many...
- Billy Budd by Herman Melville: After my recent love-affair with Melville, I can't wait to read this one, but it can be a treat later on.
- A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare: This has always been one of my favorite plays by the bard...
- The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain: I love Huck and Tom and Twain.
- Ulysses by James Joyce: After my failed attempt at the Ulysses readalong this past spring, I realized that this one would be a great end to my project. Since my first book was The Odyssey, it is only fitting that this one end the project. :)
(or am I crazy for saving titles?)
