Women’s Prize for Fiction Reading Challenge – January 2013 Edition

January is one of two magical months where I focus on reading books from the winners and nominees of my favorite literary award, the Women’s Prize for Fiction. (Previously, it was known as the Orange Prize–hence the original name of the challenge, “Orange January/July.”)

I’ve already read the works of several winners and nominees over the years, including:

This month, I’m in the midst of more wonderful Prize titles, including:

  • State of Wonder by Ann Patchett
  • Property by Valerie Martin
  • The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
  • The History of Love by Nicole Krauss
  • The Very Thought of You by Rosie Alison

If I have time, I’d also like to read Purple Hibiscus by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie; The Tiger’s Wife by Téa Obreht; and Paradise by Toni Morrison. But some of these will definitely have to wait until the July edition of the challenge.

(Thanks to nomadreader for a complete list of Orange Prize winners and nominees!)
