Suite Française by Irène Némirovsky
I have been meaning to read Suite Française for a long, long time, and just seem to have never found the time to do so. It is the top of a long list that is constantly replaced by the newest, shiniest book I have just acquired, whatever it may be (usually the new Discworld novel). The aim was that when I finished university I would read it. I did not. Maybe it’s doomed to go unread, forever neglected.
