Scheduled Reads for the rest of 2011

Although I may be ahead of schedule in my 50 book challenge, I still have much more reading to get my other challenges completed, I thought I'd record them here so I would remember.

Maisie Dobbs (British Challenge; Historical Challenge)
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (British Challenge)
Finish Vanity Fair (British Challenge; Historical Reading)
The Scarecrow of Oz (Gilmore Girls)
Dr. No (British Challenge)
Sherlock Holmes-A Study in Scarlet (British Challenge)

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Nordic Challenge)
The Girl Who Played with Fire (Nordic Challenge)

The Moonstone (British Challenge)
Ironweed (Gilmore Girls)
Valley of the Dolls (Gilmore Girls)
Candide (Gilmore Girls)

Through-out the rest of the year
These will be easy to do as I can read them during school and have just been waiting until I assign them.

5 essays (Essay Reading Challenge)
"Why We Crave Horror Movies"-Stephen King and others
2 Short Stories (Gilmore Girls)
1. "Snows of Killimanjaro" Ernest Hemingway
2. "The Trial" Franz Kafka

Horns by Joe Hill OCT 
(Geek Girls on Goodreads...I downloaded it on the Nook so we'll see if I like it enough to finish reading, I'm a little leery of the premise)

Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley NOV
(Chunksters on leader so gotta keep that one on the table)

Stiff:The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers by Mary Roach OCT
(Gilmore Girls on it before, will love to read it again with a group)

Tomato Red by Daniel Woodrell by the end of the semester
(borrowed from senior lit teachers to see if I like his writing...)

It feels good to have everything lined up and in order! Now, off to do some paper grading before the tiny person wakes up!

  1. I just finished Candide and have found myself still snickering about his adventures.

    Also, I found a list of books mentioned by Rory in Gilmore Girls and I think I'll make that my reading challenge next year - she was very well-read.
