The TBR Double Dare Interim Report

The TBR Double Dare was not a book buying ban, but a resolution to read only the books in my To Be Read stack from 1st January 2012 to 1st April 2012.

Seems l’m pretty much on track, about to finish R.J. Ellory’s A Quiet Belief in Angels (Orion, 2007), I plan to start reading this weekend Fred Vargas’ Wash This Blood Clean From My Hand (Spanish title: Bajo los vientos de Neptuno (Punto de lectura, 2008). Oddly enough I’m reading  backwards the Adamsberg book series.

My reading schedule for March looks as follows:

  • Camilla Läckberg, The Ice Princess, Harper Collins, 2009.
  • Rory Clements, Revenger, John Murray, 2010.
  • Åsa Larsson, The Blood Spilt. Spanish title: Sangre Derramada, Seix Barral, 2010.
  • Henning Mankell, The Pyramid. Spanish title: La pirámide,Tusquets Maxi, 2010.
  • Philippe Claudel, Grey Souls (aka By a Slow River) Spanish title: Almas Grises, Salamandra, 2010.

Stay tuned.

  1. You have some great books to read in March, Jose. I don’t think it matters about reading Vargas backwards. The series has been traslated slightly oddly (although I think in seqence). When I go to France there are always lots titles in French I haven’t read by Vargas so it seems there are plenty left to be translated. Looking forward to your review by R J Ellory.

  2. Really looking forward to hearing abotu these titles as I have not ready any of these authors except Mankell but keep hearing good things about the others, especially Vargas and Ellory – I’ve been failing in my attempts to read new writers, though I have just started my first klee child novel – so am very curious to read your thoughts on these.
