My Winter Reading List

It has been a long winter in Toronto, I don't recall ever seeing so much snow here. This has given me the perfect excuse to curl up with a book and a cup of tea and spend hours catching up on my reading. I will confess that I don't have kids so at this point in my life I'm reading as much as I can! For those who have kids and will be taking some time off for "March break" here is a list of books (in random order) that won't disapoint:
1. Room by Emma Donoghue
2. Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton
3. The Distant Hours by Kate Morton
4. Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese
5. The Book of Negroes by Lawrence Hill
6. Missing by Lisa Jackson
7. A Reliable Wife by Robert Goolrick
8. Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay
9. Still Alice by Lisa Genova
10. Left Neglected by Lisa Genova
11. The Salt Road by Jane Johnson

And my husband has been enjoying Cleopatra by Stacey Shiff and The Ascent of Money by Niall Ferguson.

  2. Thanks! I've been enjoying your blog! In fact, you inspired me! You are going to love Room. I couldn't put it down.

  3. March Break isn't time off, it's time on! I have Room on my bedside table, waiting for me to find some time to pick it up.

  4. You are right Mindy! Especially with three little ones! I am in for a big surprise one day...You will really enjoy ROOM.
