EDIT:
Attentive reader Elyse (see comments) pointed out that Noor is not the name of the girl. Of course! I have no idea what came up with me.
I even talked quite a bit about AO in my review!!

So glad to see Adam at Roof Beam Reader back hosting this challenge!

Here are the 12 titles I plan on reading in 2022. Books that have been collecting dust on my shelves for quite a while…
A mix of classics, fiction, nonfiction.
NB: some have a library label, but they are no longer in circulation and I bought them at my library some years back.

TBR 2022

I will update the list below with the links to my reviews, as I go along

  2. Le Voyage d’Octavio, by Miguel Bonnefoy 5/22/22

12. The Discovery of France: A Historical Geography, by Graham Robb

Edit on 7/25/2022:
For the July checkpoint, Adam suggested we make a poem with our titles, so here it is:

Oh, JOIE DE VIVRE
OUT OF SILENCE!
LE VOYAGE D’OCTAVIO,
where will it lead him?
Pure WANDERLUST with STUART LITTLE?
With THE FIRST MEN ON THE MOON?
Or through THE DISCOVERY OF FRANCE
to taste THOMAS JEFFERSON’S CRÈME BRÛLÉE?
But for A RAISIN IN THE SUN,
shared with THE DAUGHTER OF TIME,
is it true that A IS FOR ALIBI?
No, that won’t do.
The essential truth is simple:
ENSEMBLE, C’EST TOUT,
in a sweet EVENTIDE
ABSOLUTELY ON MUSIC.
