Inspired by Iliana, Danielle, and Susan, who started it, here are some Themed Reading Lists from my stacks.
I could easily spend several months reading nothing but CANADIAN authors.
I could also just as easily spend the rest of the year reading only CLASSICS, including some seriously CHUNKY ones, such as:
War and Peace-Tolstoy
The Count of Monte Cristo-Dumas
The Three Musketeers-Dumas
I could spend some time with my favourite season. I seem to subconsciously, or not, be attracted to books with winter or snow in the title! Maybe I should try this when it's hot, sticky and unbearable this summer.
A Spell of Winter- Helen Dunmore
The Snow Geese- William Fiennes
Miss Smilla's Feeling for Snow- Peter Hoeg
Encyclopedia of Snow- Sarah Emily Miano
Snow- Orhan Pamuk
Light on Snow- Anita Shreve
Ice Road- Gillian Slovo
The Ice Palace- Tarjei Vesaas
The Winter Mantle- Elizabeth Chadwick
If on a Winter's Night a Traveller- Italo Calvino
The Winter Queen- Boris Akunin
Snow Country- Yasunari Kawabata
And I could do a fair bit of armchair traveling.
