20 Books of Winter

Now here is a challenge that was made for me! So much flexibility: I love it. There are many individual ways of participating in Cathy’s Annual 20 Books of Summer Winter .

To start with, here in the Antipodes, it is a winter challenge. All that cold weather will make it that much easier to read (at least) twenty books between June and August. At least I hope so.

So, which twenty books will I read?

Well, my starting list looks like this:

  1. Maurice by E.M. Forster
  2. Wake by Shelley Burr
  3. Queen Anne by Anne Somerset
  4. Homecoming by Kate Morton
  5. The Tilt by Chris Hammer
  6. Day’s End by Garry Disher
  7. Holyman’s of Bass Strait by Frank Johnston and Julian Burgess
  8. Birnam Wood by Eleanor Catton
  9. Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier (okay, a reread)
  10. The Desert Prince by Peter V Brett
  11. Flesh Wounds by Richard Glover
  12. Discovering Devonport Tasmania by Faye Gardam
  13. Demon Copperhead by Barbara Kingsolver
  14. Sixty-Seven Days by Yvonne Weldon
  15. The Colony by Audrey Magee
  16. Blue Hotel by Chad Taylor
  17. Charlotte Gray by Sebastian Faulks
  18. Typhoon Kingdom by Matthew Hooton
  19. Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus
  20. HAGS by Victoria Smith

Wish me luck!

  1. A good mix there! I’m always reluctant to create my whole list – I usually leave some spaces free for my book group reading – but in the process of creating my starting list now.

    1. You, Kate, are a sensible person. Me, I grabbed 20 books of my closest ‘must read soon’ piles and decided to try a little discipline. We’ll see how that goes 😉


      1. That would be my approach too, except that I hover over the shelves and can’t decide!
        (What works best for me is to finish a book late at night, and head for the library for a replacement in my nightie. There’s nothing like being cold to force me into decisiveness!)
