This Easter I’m looking forward to reading, napping, gardening and sewing; mostly I’m looking forward to new books.
In the next few days I’ll finish A Tale for Time Being (Ruth Ozeki) and The Invisible Rider (Kirsten McDougall), which means I can make a start on some of the pile next to my bed. I’ve got a graphic novel (my first) that Tom recommended, 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami, Who will Run the Frog Hospital by Lorrie Moore, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald and a ton of others that I can’t recall right now.
This year I’m also really looking forward to the new Eleanor Catton novel, The Luminaries (that’ll take most of August to read) and Donna Tartt’s long-awaited new book The Goldfinch.
If you haven’t read Donna Tartt’s The Secret History you should get onto that – it’s a brilliant book and is also available as a Penguin Classic, which means it will only cost you about $14.
