In 2018 I want to read…..
The hate you give, the nightingale… And many more!
& read & read & read & …
a few of the classics: Ulysses, Emile, Moby Dick, and On The Origin of Species. I need to take my brain off coasting mode and get it working again.
Sorry, just had to laugh at the „Ulysses“ one… I read (among other subjects) English Lit at university and, year after year, planned to read Ulysses over the summer holidays. I‘m nearly 50 now and have never finished the f***er (or even got past page fifty!!). The thing just isn‘t readable!! If my students ask about Joyce, I direct them towards „Dubliners“ or „A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man“. Let‘s face it, „Ulysses“ and „Finnegan‘s Wake“ are great examples of the Flow of Consciousness, but who has actually read them?! (This is meant as a serious question, so please feel free to answer! ?)
I don’t know if I will finish, but I seem to be encountering references to it quite a bit lately, so figured I should at least become somewhat familiar lol. I also want to read a bit more Camus and tackle Proust. Lofty goals lol.
Do not talk; just read…
Rest of the Discworld ?
A lot and whatever comes ahead… I‘m no big planner, very often, one book leads to the next and I let myself be influenced by newspaper reviews, friends‘ recommendations, „you might also like“-s on Amazon or Goodreads…
I‘ve started the Amalia Peabody series and will continue in that one, plus I‘m in two bookclubs, and we always decide on a new book whenever we meet and discuss the last one. The first two are Julian Barnes‘ „The Noise of Time“ and Coldon Whithead‘s „The Underground Railroad“, so these are a given. Also, Julian Barnes‘ „Arthur and George“ and Gail Honeyman’s „Eleanor Olphant is Completely Fine“ have been waiting on my bedside table for a while. The rest will present itself over time! I‘ll set my reading challenge on Goodreads to 50, which is realistic.
Beggarman, Thief by Irwin Shaw Five Children And It by Edith Nesbit & many other ebooks!
Only Human by Sylvain Neuvel (3rd book in The Themis Files)
Read the Amelia Peabody series. Wish I could find another like it.
Read the two books by D.G. Gillespie! „Rules to Die By“ and „Planning to Die“. Different setting, but similar feeling as the Peabody-series!
More books from my at-home (in other words, not from the library) TBR pile.
War & Peace
I reread this book every year, I absolutely love this book!!❤❤
I have been working my way through classics, mostly British classics. This will be my first Russian literature.
The book thief Sita Amish Tripathi The Origin dan Brown
The Book Thief is on my list too.
The nightingale, All the light we cannot see, the mountain between us, the invention of wings, a spool of blue thread, the help, water for elephants, the night circus, at home in mitford, the hunger games, finish a game of thrones, the light between oceans, the good girl, the book thief….to name a few ☺
So many books! I’ll say a couple though; Renegades by Marissa Meyer, A Man Called Ove, The Girl Who Drank the Moon, Stiletto and Sleeping Beauties.
Anna Karenina. It’s been on my TBR list forever and this year I am going to read it!!
I read it one summer. I liked the storyline…it is wordy because every single thing is described. At length. ?
More…. just more
As many new books as possible
Read books in my home library….so I can get more?
Lots of books. Especially ones I haven’t already read. I’m a chronic rereader
New books added to any series I may be behind on.
More. I lagged a bit in 2017
More of Kathy Reich’s books called Virals(Its a series)
It’s a great series. I just need to read the last one ?
Everything I possible can
Hours every day..
All the piles of books I got this year that I haven’t read yet
All the books!
More series to completion. There are so many that I’ve read the first book of but not finished. That, and I’ve been doing year long challenges that don’t leave much room for series.
More books than 2017. 24 books is hardly anything, my goal is 52 or more. I also want to read more of the books I already own so I can start to declutter my personal library. Anything that gets 3/5 or less from me on Goodreads goes!
The rest of the Outlander series…books 5-9
I still have to read 7 and 8, I don’t think 9 is out yet. I want to get caught up on those 2 also
Ahh yes. I meant 5-8
Nice. I love the series
Me too! That’s actually one of my resolutions. I want to read more.
At least 100 books ? That’s my goal every year
More. Everything. Every Day. Non-stop except for potty breaks. lol
Many can’t keep track lol
Books and Books and more Books
