Reading Roulette

Cathy at 746 Books posted a Reading Roulette yesterday, noting that it had been four years since her last roulette post… And I thought that it had also been some time since readers had picked my next read. I checked. Also four years!

I’ve picked six books from the big stack next to my bed – what should I read next?

The Hiding Game by Naomi Wood – Bauhaus, group dynamics, Berlin.
The Last of Her Kind by Sigrid Nunez – campus-lit, a murder, two friends.
Fleishman is in Trouble by Taffy Brodesser-Akner – the nineties, divorce, New York.
Behind the Scenes at the Museum by Kate Atkinson – a family, secrets, history.
The Reading Cure by Laura Freeman – anorexia, reading, recovery.
S by J. J. Abrams and Doug Dorst – a library book, a mystery, margin notes.

  1. This sounds like a fun idea, and you have some good books on the list. My braille technology didn’t allow me to click on the vote for some reason, but I would have gone for Behind the Scenes at the Museum. I’m a very late ariver to the Kate Atkinson party, as I only started reading her last year, but I thoroughly enjoyed this one, and I think it would provide you with some good comfort reading.

    • Thanks for your comment Alyson, I’ll add your vote to the tally (Atkinson is winning).
      I was also very late to the Atkinson party, reading Life After Life two years ago. I followed it with A God in Ruins – loved them both. Looks like Museum will be my third Atkinson.

  2. I’m not going to weigh in, but I’ve enjoyed reading others’ responses here. Most of these are still on my own TBR (I’ve read two of them). Have fun with your selection!
