The first novel has been my shelf for about a year and half. I picked it up a Half Priced Books when I was at my first semester of college at a friends recommendation. I made it about 50 pages before school work swallowed me whole.
Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell (Jonathan Strange & Mr Norell #1) by Susanna Clarke
My goal this year is to finally read all of the books on my own shelf before the year ends.
