I pinched this from Musings from the Sofa.

The Rules:

  • Bold what you have read
  • Italicise books started but not finished
  • Strike through books hated
  • Add an asterisk to books read more than once
  • Underline books on your tbr list

So here goes:

  • Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell
  • Anna Karenina
  • Crime and Punishment
  • Catch-22*
  • One Hundred Years of Solitude
  • Wuthering Heights
  • The Silmarillion*

  • The Iliad
  • Emma
  • The Blind Assassin
  • The Kite Runner
  • Mrs Dalloway*
  • Great Expectations

Result (rough count, not validated!): books read = 38, books hated = 1, on my tbr list = 14 (though between us the Book God and I have some of the others, they’re just not on my radar at the moment) and books unfinished =  5 (and look how many of these are by Jane Austen, oh dear)
