Great choices Annie! I am so glad that you and your mom are both joining in the challenge. As always I look forward to your reviews! I hope everything is going well for you.

That's a fab list, Annie! Look forward to your review posts!

Andi said...

Great choices, indeed! I'm miserably underread when it comes to Bradbury, but have you read From the Dust Returned? It sort of stands out to me as a penultimate RIP choice for its weird mix of paranormal characters.

Love your blog, by the way! I don't know how I've never made it here before. But I'll be back!

Chris said...

What a great list Annie! I'm looking forward to Something Wicked This Way Comes too! It's looking to be a theme for this challenge.

Nymeth said...

Great list, Annie! I really enjoyed both Something Wicked This Way Comes and The Hound of the Baskervilles. And how cool that you are reading MacBeth!

Kailana said...

Great list. Good luck!

Jean said...

I'm jealous! I wish I had the time to commit to reading a set list. My reading plans for summer got totally lost in finishing three quilts. Of course, now that they're given away, I've started another. It might be time for books on tape/CD as I sew. Good luck!

Great list, Annie! I love your Ray Bradbury selections. Look forward to reading your reviews!

Carl V. said...

Oooo, The Silmarillion! I love that book. It is kind of rough compared to the other Lord of the Rings books, so don't be disappointed if you aren't as thrilled by it as I am. But, you may end up really getting into it and if you do then I can't wait to hear your thoughts on it.

Thanks! I'm really excited about this challenge!


Actually, this is the first Bradbury I've read! I'll look for that book!


Thanks! I can't wait to read it!


I'm looking forward to reading both of those books and MacBeth!




Thanks! I wish you could join the challenge too.

Ex Libris-

Thank you! I've never read Bradbury before, but I'm looking forward to it!

Carl V.-

Thanks for warning me! I've already found out that it's rougher reading, and I'm not even past the forward yet! I'm really enjoying it so far, though.

Thanks everyone!

Once you get past the opening chapters about the creation of the world of Middle-earth, which are beautiful albiet a little difficult to read, it gets easier. At least that is my opinion of it. There are lots of names, etc., but it still tells a story of sorts about the history of the world. The last chapters up to and after the events of The Lord of the Rings are wonderful.

Court said...

That's such a great list, Annie! So many good books, I hope you enjoy them. Macbeth is one of my FAVOURITES, and I'm hoping to read Something Wicked This Way Comes as well. :)

I loved the Hounds of the Baskervilles and the Bartimaeus triology. Hope you do too.
