This week’s musing asks…
Are there any “raved reads” –books that everyone seems to be talking about– that you’re hoping to get read this year, yourself? What books are they, and why are you hoping to read them? Is it because you want to say you’ve read it? Or, would you have chosen to read it, even if you’d discovered it yourself, and no one was raving about it?
There are many, many books I've heard fabulous things about and would like to read. Here's just a few of them:
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón
The Prague Cemetery by Umberto Eco
Delirium by Lauren Oliver
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Steifvater
I would definitely pick these up even without the amount of people praising them, mainly because their subject matter interests me.
