#LongandShortReviews #BloggingChallenge 9.11.19

This week’s topic is BOOKS THAT I KEEP MEANING TO READ ( but haven’t).

In all honesty, I could make about 5 blogs out of this one topic! My life is so busy ( as most of our lives are) that my reading for pleasure has taken a back seat to everything else.

If I were stranded on a deserted island that happened to have a library somewhere in the jungle, I’d be able to get to these books that have been on my TBR list for eons:

The Handmaids Tale, by Margaret Atwood. I love the HULU show so much, I’d like to actually read the book for a more indepth knowledge of Gillead

The Stand, by Stephen King. Every teenage boy I have ever known who’s read this book has loved it. I want to know  why.

The complete collection of NORA ROBERTS books  in order of publication- all 679,000,000 of them! hee hee.

The complete works of Shakespeare. I’ve read about 10 in my lifetime.

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. The movie was good, but I heard the book was better,

The complete works of Susan Mallery.   She’s a oneclick author for me!

The complete works of Sarah Morgan  Another one click!

That would get me through the first month of my stranded-ness (!)

Let’s see what some of the other authors in the blog challenge want to read: L&SR

Until next time ~ Peg

  1. I absolutely loved The Stand… and A Handmaid’s Tale. I like the book Gone Girl better than the movie. Some good choices! Mine are here.

  2. I devoured the Stand. Yes, it’s long. Yes, it’s dreary in spots, but it was worth it. I haven’t read the Handmaid’s Tale yet, either. I tried to read Gone Girl, but it wasn’t my cuppa. You have a great list, though. I get how reading for pleasure has gone by the wayside. I’m with you.

    I can’t recommend The Handmaid’s Tale highly enough The sequel to it came out yesterday, too! I just started reading the sequel and think it’s great so far.

  7. The Stand is long as heck, but is so good. I hope you can get to it someday! Also, I really enjoyed Gone Girl although I hated the ending. Still haven’t watched the movie yet though!

    I was one of those teenage boys who really enjoyed the stand. I re-read it a while back, and while I still enjoyed it I found several of the decisions made a lot more… questionable than I did when I was younger.

    My list is here:

    Quite a list, Peg! Good luck with the Shakespeare. A few of those tragedies may require copious amounts of wine and chocolate. 🙂 But they’re offset by some really beautiful sonnets!!

    Nora Roberts and Shakespeare could keep you reading for years. Great reading.
