a reading update.  
I've finally finished another book, which makes for a total of 12 books read this year.

Pathetic.

01. Children of God by Mary Doria Russell (436 pages)
02. The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey (386 pages)
03. The Last Brother by Nathacha Appanah (164 pages)
04. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green (313 pages)
05. The Game by A.S. Byatt (286 pages)
06. The Gunslinger by Stephen King (300 pages)
07. The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman (352 pages)
08. The Help by Kathryn Stockett (522 pages)
09. The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown (368 pages)
10. The Hotel New Hampshire by John Irving (401 pages)
11. The Night Birds by Thomas Maltman (366 pages)
12. The Pendragon by Catherine Christian (506 pages)

Total: 4,400 pages

At least I can be assured my reading list will be longer this year than it was last year. Last year I ONLY managed 12 books. I've still got a few months left in 2013 to read a couple more.

I wonder how having a baby to care for will affect my reading... Probably not much. I've really let my passion fall by the wayside these last couple of years. At least after the baby is born I'll have an excuse for my laziness.

I'll be reading Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel next. I've been in a Tudor mood lately. My plan is to finish the book by September 21st. I've got a small list of books I'd like to get through this fall/winter: The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova; House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski; and Violin by Anne Rice.

The last two novels are re-reads. I've been trying to avoid rereading books the last couple of years but these two have been haunting my mind for a while now.
