My Reading List for 2014

The New Year is usually a time to make lists; lists of resolutions, lists of things to do, places to go to and the like. And so inspired by a colleague who has a neat list of books she wishes to read in 2014 pinned up at her desk, I too have come up with my reading list for this year.

Here goes my list in complete random order:

1.    The Lowland: Jhumpa Lahiri
2.    Tiny Beautiful Things: Cheryl Strayed
3.    Norwegian Wood: Haruki Murakami
4.    Open City: Teju Cole
5.    Sex and the Citadel: Shereen El Feki
6.    Those Pricey Thakur Girls: Anuja Chauhan
7.    Such a Long Journey: Rohinton Mistry
8.    The Bastard of Istanbul: Elif Shafak
9.    Homesick (short stories): Roshi Fernando
10.  Nobody Can Love You More: Mayank Austen Soofi
11.  NW: Zadie Smith
12.  The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society: Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows
13.  A Fine Balance: Rohinton Mistry
14.  Matilda: Roald Dahl
15.   Delhi Noir: Hirsh Sawhney
16.  The Good Muslim: Tahmima Anam
17.  I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts About Being a Woman: Nora Ephron
18.  Where'd You Go Bernadette: Maria Semple
19.  Attachments: Rainbow Rowell
20.  Chasing the Monsoon: Alexander Frater
21.  Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Katherine Boo
22.  The Goldfinch: Donna Tartt
23.  Anastasia Krupnik: Lois Lowry
24.  Short Stories by Marquez: Gabriel Garcia Marquez
25.  Moranthology: Caitlin Moran

That was my list for this year. Probably I’m being a little too ambitious, but is there anything else you’d recommend?
