    Of these, the only one that I’ve read is Burial Rites by Hannah Kent. It was sooo good. I hope you enjoy it! Happy Reading!

    I’m doing this too 🙂 Good luck with your list, and I’ll look forward to see what you think of The Unicorn – I’ve not read it but I’ve enjoyed a few Iris Murdochs in my time 🙂

    I’ve read a few books on your list, and I enjoyed them all. After the forceful and completely varying commentary The Mothers received during the Tournament of Books, I was a bit reluctant to pick it up, but I thought it was a great book that dealt very even-handedly with several very emotional subjects. If you enjoy audiobooks, then this is one to consider listening to.

    This is a great idea. I love making lists, especially reading related ones! I’d like to give it a try but I’m not sure I could stick with it, I’m easily distracted by new releases and recommendations!
