It seems like a long time since I have done a Reading Roulette, but I think it’s time once again to put my literary fate in your capable hands and ask you to pick one of my October reads from the 746!
I have six options this time round, some with a spooky feel, given that it will be close to Halloween by the time I get round to reading them but all gathering dust on my shelves.
Have a look at the options and cast your vote. Maybe you’ll choose a book because you loved it? Or because you still have to read it to? Or even because you hated it?!
I don’t really mind. I’m in your hands! Let’s see if you can pick me my new favourite book….
So, for October my Reading Roulette choices are:
The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
Bad Behaviour by Mary Gaitskill
Blue Diary by Alice Hoffman
The Sisters Brothers by Patrick de Witt
Stoner by John Williams
I’ve linked the titles to their Goodreads page just in case you want some more details on the books and I’ll keep the voting open until September 30th.
Most of these are books that I have lost that urge to read and probably wouldn’t pick up if I was choosing my next book. I’d be quite happy for any of these to win. I’ve never read any Sherlock Holmes (for shame!) and Alice Hoffman is an old favourite whose work I haven’t read for years. I’d love to read Patrick de Witt’s new book, but given the whole premise of my blog, it’s probably better to read the one that I already have and I have yet to hear a bad word said about Stoner.
So, have you read any of these? Which do you think will win? I have no idea!
