It’s incredible to think that 2012 is halfway over. What a busy but fun year so far!
This month, I will be participating in Orange July, a twice-yearly challenge to read more books from the winners and nominees of the Orange Prize, my favorite literary award.
This month, I’m planning to read We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver; State of Wonder by Ann Patchett; The Very Thought of You by Rosie Alison; and The History of Love by Nicole Krauss.
I’m also hoping to get to The Tiger’s Wife by Téa Obreht; Property by Valerie Martin; Purple Hibiscus by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie; and Paradise by Toni Morrison.
Wish me luck, and have a great month!

Happy Orange July! I need to get back on my quest of reading the winners, but I’m having so much fun reading whatever strikes my fancy, I don’t want to rock the boat. I’ve read six of the eight you plan to read, and I think you’re in for some real treats–plus you’ve got wonderful variety there. Happy reading!
