1. A book that's been on my TBR list for a long time - The Goldfinch
2. A book about food - It Was Me All Along

Dianne | 5 comments Okay, I've started the first book in The Outlander series and I've decided that I'm not going to invest anymore time in it. It's more of a romance novel than a fantasy novel. I'll have to make another choice.

Nina Foster (ninafoster) I'm currently reading :Wild Child: Girlhoods in the Counterculture, it's essays from some young women about what it was like being raised by hippie parents in the sixties and seventies. I set my challenge to 25 too for this year, but I'll probably double that.

Dianne | 5 comments I just finished We Need to Talk About Kevin. It's one of my favorite reads this year. I'd highly recommend it. I read it as a book with unreliable narrator. Now I've go to make myself finish White Rage: The Unspoken Truth of Our Racial Divide. It's well written and very important, but very difficult to read because it's so upsetting. I'm reading Astrophysics for People in a Hurry at the same time because it gives me something else to think about that is totally different.

Dianne | 5 comments I've changed my mind about two of the books I planned on reading.
I'm afraid they're too long and I won't hit my goal. I"m replacing
a book that takes places in wartime. I'm going to read All Quiet on the Western Front. Also, I'm not going to read a book with a difficult topic. I read several of those recently so I'm going with a book with pictures in it - On a Beam of Light: A Story of Albert Einstein

In September, I'll read 3 books All Quiet on the Western Front, and On a Beam of Light: A Story of Albert Einstein

22. A book with a title with a name in it The Lies of Locke Lamora
