The Life and Opinions of Tristam Shandy by Laurence Sterne
The Grapes of Wrath by John Steineck
Cup of Gold by John Steinbeck
The Acts of King Arthur And His Noble Knights by John Steinbeck
Notes: Tristam Shandy (if I get to it) would count for the 1% Well Read Challenge.
It's *almost* embarrassing how many times I've checked out Grapes of Wrath. I still have never gotten past the first chapter.
Cup of Gold is the first Steinbeck, and I think it's about pirates. So that could be fun.
The Acts of King Arthur, I don't have a solid explanation, though I am in the Arthurian challenge. So that may be why I *felt* the need to take it home with me.
Scaramouche by Rafael Sabatini
Secret History of the Pink Carnation by Lauren Willig
A Place of Greater Safety by Hilary Mantel
Notes: Ever since
2001: A Space Odyssey by Arthur Clarke
Zoe's Tale by John Scalzi
Notes: I've not read any Arthur C. Clarke. So I have no idea what to expect. The Scalzi I'm looking forward to. I have checked this out before. But I found rushing into this one right after Ghost Brigades and The Last Colony a bit too much. I'm hoping now that I'll be able to click with this one since it's been a few months since my last Scalzi.
The Independence of Miss Mary Bennet by Colleen McCullough
Antony and Cleopatra by Colleen McCullough
Claudius the God by Robert Graves
Notes: I've heard some dreadful, dreadful things about The Independence of Miss Mary Bennet. If that's true, then I get to blog about it. And on the off chance that it turns into a wonderful read, then I get to be contrary. I don't know why the other two came home with me other than Michelle Moran got me curious on Cleopatra (a wee bit anyway) and I've been meaning to get back to the Graves. I loved I, Claudius.
Fourth Comings by Megan McCafferty
Perfect Fifths by Megan McCafferty
Notes: I really loved the first two books in the series. But really didn't like the third. I expect it get worse before it gets better. But I have high hopes for the last book. Jennie made it sound like it was worth my time.
