Summer Reading

Here, for your laughter and enjoyment, is my Completely Unreasonable Summer Reading List. I really do want to read all these books, not necessarily in this order. Preferably soon.

  • Crime and Punishment (Dostoyevsky) (the second half)
  • The Iliad (Homer)
  • The Making of a Poem (Mark Strand, Eavan Boland)
  • Cilla Lee-Jenkins: Future Author Extraordinaire (Susan Tan)
  • When You Trap a Tiger (Tae Keller)
  • This Our Exile (Joshua Hren)
  • Freeing Jesus (Diana Butler Bass)
  • Monet’s Palate Cookbook (Aileen Bordman and Derek Fell)
  • The Five Wounds (Kirstin Valdez Quade)
  • Secondhand: Travels in the New Global Garage Sale (Adam Minter)
  • One Hundred Years of Solitude (Gabriel García Márquez)
  • Unsheltered (Barbara Kingsolver)
  • The Whereabouts of Eneas McNulty (Sebastian Barry)
  • Lost in Thought (Zena Hitz)
  • The Westing Game (Ellen Raskin)
  • Poems New and Collected (Wisława Szymborska)
  • Wingfeather Series (Andrew Peterson)
  • Plus back issues of Image, Evangelization and Culture, and Plough

It’s possible I need to be less ambitious and more focused. It’s highly unlikely I’ll finish anywhere near all of these by the end of July.

But a girl can dream, can’t she?
