Now, what will I be reading? From these titles:

  1. The Fictional 100: Ranking the Most Influential Characters in World Literature and Legend, by Lucy Pollard-Gott – this sounds totally fascinating, and I decided to read 1 chapter/day
  2. The Showings, by Julian of Norwich
  3. Journeys Through France and Life, by Glenda de Vaney – this will be my first book about France, and for France Book Tours!
    For those new here, have a look at France Book Tours: we have great titles to offer you to review, in all genres, from nonfiction to paranormal!
    Also, if you want a fun reading challenge for 2015, you should try this French Bingo! you don’t need to know French to play and read!
  4. The Tutor, by Andrea Chapin – ebooks
  5. Cover Her Face, by P.D. James – audio
  6. Rodin’s Lover, by Heather Webb – 2nd book for France Book Tours, if I have time

There are no goals to set for this Bout of Books. I would be very happy if I manage to finish 3 books and review them as well!
