September’s Reading List of Doom

Posted September 1, 2015 by Michael @ Knowledge Lost in What are you Reading / 10 Comments

It turns out I have way too many books on my reading list that I need to get read in the month of September. I do not know if I will be able to complete them and I know I will be distracted with other books but I thought I would share a whole list of different books waiting for me. A lot of these books are books from the library or just books I have agreed to read as part of a buddy read or a read-along. I am excited about many of the books I am going to be reading but this TBR is just beyond ridiculous. Let us see how many I do complete.

sept TBR 1

  • Valley of the Dolls by Jacqueline Susann (currently reading)
  • Satin Island by Tom McCarthy (library book & currently reading)
  • The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George (translated by Simon Pare) (in real-life book club book for September)
  • The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood (re-read and BookTube read-along)
  • Choke by Chuck Palahniuk (library book & BookTube read-along)

sept TBR 2

  • The Three-Body Problem by Liu Cixin (translated by Ken Liu) (potential buddyread with Riv)
  • A Brief History of Seven Killings by Marlon James (library book)
  • Quiet by Susan Cain (audiobook)
  • American Gods by Neil Gaiman (Literary Exploration Goodreads group)
  • The Devil’s Detective by Simon Kurt Unsworth (library book)

sept TBR 3

  • Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates (library book)
  • Bonjour Tristesse by Françoise Sagan (translated by Heather Lloyd) (potential buddyread with Time to Read!)
  • Chess by Stefan Zweig (translated by Anthea Bell) (potential buddyread with Time to Read!)
  • My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante (translated by Ann Goldstein) (in real-life book club book for October)
  • The Parrots by Filippo Bologna (translated by Howard Curtis)

I know I am not going to complete all these books, but I will try. If you are interested in buddyreading any of these, please let me know and I shall see what I can do.

  1. I’m loving all the library books you’ve got listed here!

    I read My Brilliant Friend a few months ago – I think it was in March or April – and I hated it. I didn’t understand its appeal and once I was finished, I was like “That’s it? WTF was that?” So, if you end up finishing that one in September, I’d really like to hear your opinions on it.

    Dear heaven… no one can accuse you of lack of enthusiasm, that’s for sure. I liked Quiet and Handmaid’s Tale and loathed American Gods. And don’t remember a single thing about Choke. It’s been a bit of a challenge to find Three-Body Problem copy that does not cost a little pile of gold, but I’m not giving up.

  3. This is a great list, I might steal some of it. Impressive if you make it through them all in a month – will definitely check back to see! I read The Handmaid’s Tale at school and have just been thinking it’s due a re-read, so maybe I’ll ease myself in with that one.
