20 Books of Summer: Update #1

If you are a frequent browser of TLD, or if you know my reading habits IRL (Hi, Mom!), then you will have noticed that I have made some substitutions to my original "20 Books of Summer" TBR.  For those of you who haven't kept an eagle eye on my blog . . . my revised (as of 4 July 2015) list is as follows:
  1. N.P. by Banana Yoshimoto [Completed in June]
  2. The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami 
  3. Girl in a Band by Kim Gordon 
  4. Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee
  5. Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami 
  6. Brave Genius by Sean B. Carroll 
  7. In Cold Blood by Truman Capote 
  8. Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neal Hurston 
  9. The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
  10. The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson
  11. Lulu in Hollywood by Louise Brooks
  12. The Last Four Days of Paddy Buckley by Jeremy Massey
  13. If On a Winter's Night a Travler by Italo Calvino 
  14. The Babysitters Club: Mary Ann Saves the Day  by Ann M. Martin and Raina Telgemeier
  15. Drama by Raina Telgemeier
  16. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
  17. The Sputnik Sweetheart by Haruki Murakami
  18. Sisters by Raina Telgemeier
  19. Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage by Haruki Murakami
  20. Dance Dance Dance by Haruki Murakami 
You'll notice that I am well behind the curve on my reading due in part to working, writing, personal stuff, and the challenge of reading through the The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle.  Here's to hoping that I will be able to get caught up with my list while waiting out the fireworks tonight!

Happy 4th of July to all of my American readers and a happy weekend to everyone else!
