To Be Read Book List

Hi fellow book bugs! I wanted to share with you  * some * of my reading list as to give you an idea of what I may be posting about in the future.

Do you think there are important books I’m missing?? Please let me know in the comment section the books that I need to add or let me know what reviews you can’t wait to read!

Thanks for visiting!

    Whoa! You have got a big TBR list.
    This seems so good that people are really indulging in reading.
    The book list is great.
    Here are some of my book suggestions that you might want to add in this list –
    “Jane Eyre” by Charlotte Bronte ( You should read it as you will be reading Austen. Both books belong to Victorian era and it will be good if you could spot the difference between their writings)

    Add some of Dan Brown’s books to have an adrenaline ride.

    “The Color Purple” by Alice Walker (Since you have added Morrison’s “Beloved”. Both belong to African literature)

    I hope you will add these in your TBR list. Eagerly waiting for all the book reviews.

    Keep reading and writing 🙂
    Cheers 🙂

      Thanks for reading my list and suggesting more additions! The Color Purple is one that is on my “extended” list haha. I hadn’t have Jane Eyre on there, but I’ll have to now! & I’ve enjoyed reading The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown when it was relatively new. It was such a good read!

      Thank you again for leaving additions! 🙂 🙂

    Huge list you have there Lorann. I might suggest a bit of Joseph Campbell – Mythology and such. One of his famous quotes: follow your Bliss. Wise words.

    A title – The hero with a thousand faces.

      As always, thanks for the input Frankprem 🙂 I actually have a soap dish at home that says follow your bliss! How odd that I have that quote and you include that there!
      Thanks again for reading !
