Six Books Six Months

Dolce Bellezza has put out the challenge – can you categorise your books from the first six months of the year into just six categories? The Book Jotter started the trend with the following categories:

1. Six new authors to me;

2. Six authors I have read before;

3. Six authors I am looking forward to reading more of;

4. Six books I have enjoyed the most;

5. Six books I was disappointed with;

6. Six series of books read or started. (i.e. series)

Here’s my list, tweaked a little to suit my tastes:

Six new authors to me

  1. Karl Pilkington
  2. George Eliot
  3. Elliot Perlman
  4. Caroline Overington
  5. Paul Theroux
  6. Jeffrey Archer

Six new authors I am looking forward to reading more of:

  1. Mary McCarthy
  2. Winifred Watson
  3. Jane Harris
  4. Ito Ogawa
  5. Madeleine St John
  6. Amor Towles

Six authors I have read before (and that I love):

  1. Camilla Lackberg
  2. Sophie Hannah
  3. Cynthia Harrod-Eagles

  4. The Women in Black – Madeleine St John
  5. The Restaurant of Love Regained – Ito Ogawa

Six books I was disappointed with (meaning that they didn’t live up to my probably unreasonably high expectations):

  1. The Freudian Slip – Marion Von Adlerstein
  2. The Marriage Plot – Jeffrey Eugenides
  3. The Street Sweeper – Elliot Perlman
  4. The Debutante – Kathleen Tessaro
  5. Burley Cross Postbox Theft – Nicola Barker

Can you fit your reading into six categories?
