Books to be read by Aga

Ok, now I'm trying to create a list, which is not so easy as you know ;) After some time of thinking I hope to reach 8 books in all of those 8 categories above. I already wrote some books in a few categories as I'm sure I would like to read them in this year. Some categories are empty and I'll be very flexible during next months to fill them :) So...

Wow, you have a challenging list of books here! I see Crime and Punishment was your first review. I liked what you wrote. I also read the book but had a hard time writing about it.
Have fun!

I see you have the Monk scheduled to be read. I loved it and reviewed it HERE.

If you're interested, there's a brand new version of Arukiyomi's 1001 books spreadsheet. Along with some cool new features, there are lists of both the revised 1001 books and those that were removed.

To get your free copy of the spreadsheet, head over to Arukiyomi.

Happy reading!
