Dad’s and My Reading Challenge for 2011 [Updated]

Dad picked all contemporary novels written by women and I picked all contemporary novels written by men. (Yes, we planned that.)

January: month off / I was finishing up some 2010 books!

February: “Faith Fox” by Jane Gardem

March: “Mother’s Milk” by Edward St. Aubyn

April: “36 Arguments for the Existence of God” by Rebecca Goldstein

May: “Carry Me Down” by MJ Hyland

June: ” The Children’s Book” by AS Byatt

July: “In a Strange Room” by Damon Galgut

Aout: “Wolf Hall” by Hilary Mantel

ETA: DUE TO MY LACK OF TIME FOR PERSONAL READING RIGHT NOW, WE HAVE POSTPONED THE LAST FOUR MONTHS ON THIS LIST, and instead we will read those books in Jan-Apr of 2012. So there you have it.

September: “Freedom” by Jonathan Franzen

October: “The Air We Breathe” by Andrea Barrett

November: “Super Sad True Love Story” by Gary Shteyngart
