Rainbow TBR Selections: Monochrome

9:00 am

The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay by Michael Chabon - this cover is just too beautiful. I very rarely pick up brand new copies of books from book shops (favouring a rummage around second-hand shelves) but this was an exception. Really looking forward to reading this but the sheer size of it is slightly off-putting.

Selected Poems 1923-1958 by e. e. cummings - another first-hand book to further my venture into the world of poetry. I really like these minimalist editions from Faber.

The Reader by Bernhard Schlink - saw the film, absolutely loved it, cried a lot, picked this up second-hand recently for 95p.

The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie - another unread Christie, another wonderful old cover.

The Pale King by David Foster Wallace - I am clearly a masochist, like anybody else willing to try and read DFW. I like to think of this as bridging the gap between reading his short stories, working your way up to Infinite Jest (it will never happen).

The Orestian Trilogy by Aeschylus - bought when still at university after studying a drama module and pretending I knew what I was doing. Also this cover technically isn't monochrome but I think it's really cool so thought it was worth including.
