1. Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
This one has featured in many a TBR list this year but I'm feeling pretty good about finally getting to it this summer. Last summer I made Anna Karenina a mini summer project so I think I'll do the same with this one.
2. The Silver Dark Sea by Susan Fletcher
I have adored every one of Fletcher's novels (her writing is so lyrical and beautiful), and this one I bought after Christmas in the kindle sale to save for the summer. The time has come.
3. Valley of the Dolls by Jacqueline Susann
This has been on the mental TBR for yonks and on the physical TBR for too long. Time for some feminism!
4. Inconvenient People by Sarah Wise
Victorians and madness - two of my favourite things. This non-fiction book promises lots of potential Wilkie links.
5. The Moon and Sixpence by W. Somerset Maugham
As I've been meaning to read another Maugham since reading The Painted Veil about 3/4 years ago, I think this summer could be the right time to finally make good on that.
6. How to Build a Girl by Caitlin Moran
7. The Museum of Extrordinary Things by Alice Hoffman
My Mum and I have slowly been making our way through Hoffman's back catalogue (usually picking up whichever one we find in the local Oxfam) so we were both excited to hear she had a new novel out.
8. And The Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseni
I was given this for Christmas and it's still on shelf. Shame on me.
9. The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
My sister has just zoomed through this and loved it so it's looking like a must-read for me.
10. Lady Audley's Secret by Mary Elizabeth Braddon
Another one from the ever-expanding TBR. I missed the readalong for this one but adored everyone's posts so I'm planning this as a summer classic.
