What books are on your list for this year?The MOST important question for 2019: What books are on your list for this year? Cathy #questionnaire
Way too many to catch up on from last year.
@Angie me too!
Too many books…
First up is Educated.
@Sara want to borrow when you are done
@Angel okay! ?
The Wicked King by Holly Black
I have to finish “What Girls are Good For: a Novel of Nellie Bly” by David Blixt, and then I have “The Blue” by Nancy Bilyeau to read, but then I’ll be onto “The Chef’s Secret” by Crystal King. After that, for now I have “The Huntress” by Kate Quinn, “Woman 99” by Ariel Lawhon, “The Beautiful Strangers” by Camille Di Maio, “Old Baggage” by Lissa Evens, “The Printed Letter Bookshop” by Katherine Reay, and “The Last List of Miss Judith Kratt” by Andrea Bobotis. These are just the eBooks I have!
Thanks I’ll look at the Nelly Bly and the Printed Letter Bookshop
@Karen I grabbed the Nellie Bly one when it was free on Amazon. I got the Printed Letter Bookshop via NetGalley.
Where the Crawdads sing
@Linda I read that yesterday. It’s so good!! Enjoy ?
@Linda, reading it now and I love it it! Only 4 chapters in!!!!
Still playing around with this list. Have a few more to add
In a box my TBR books carried forward from 2018. Soon more books with book vouchers am getting. Heavenly.
I’m going 2 start reading my giveaway books?

Am I the only person who doesn’t know what they are going to read until about half way through the book I’m currently reading?
I tend to plan 1-2 books in advance, and then change my mind at the last minute!
I am going to start with The Library Book by Susan Orlean.
your next one
I have 158 books on my TBR list. Starting the new year off with The Lost Man by Jane Harper.
@Sherri 158?? Wow
Going to try to read what’s on my bookshelves before ordering more. Although I did just order #3 and 4 (used paperbacks) in The Beach House series by Mary Alice Monroe.
@Donna White’s book, Promise between Us, is very good. I enjoyed some of her other books too.
Woot! Thanks for tagging me, @Donna. I spy @Karen, too <3
@Pat Yes it is – I blurbed it! Loved Maisie and all the cast of characters – so richly drawn and REAL!
This is one of three stacks I’m going to work on
@Diane good ones!!
I’m going to be reading ARCs and rereading a couple old favorites. Harry Potter, Borderlines by Caroline Kraus, The Alice Network, some Jodi Picoult. I’m in a reading slump, so I figure rereading old favorites might get me out of it.
@Katherine always works for me!
@Gaye that’s the advice I see the most. So I’m really hoping it helps. I’m most excited to read Borderlines – it was a favorite and then I lost my copy in a move, and I just bought it off Thriftbooks for $3.79.
@Katherine who is the author of Borderlines
@Gaye Caroline Kraus. It’s amazing!!
I reread too when I’m in a slump ??
Diving into this one today!!! It’s so good!
I think one of the first, which I already own, has to be Where the Crawdads Sing. Also, on the recommendation of a friend, The Romanov Empress. I want to read at least one “old” book this year – one of several I remember my mom raving about, just not sure which one; perhaps Mrs. Mike. I hope to do a better job keeping up with the featured authors here, too.
No list. At the end of the year I’m as surprised as everyone else by what I’ve read.
Amen. I could put my list up here, but by the end of January it will have changed. I’ve even tried stacking them on my nightstand, but the pile changes. ***shrugging shoulders*** I call it “being flexible”.
SOOOOOOOOO many! Lol. Of course!
These are my first reads (as they come out):
The Huntress (I’m reading The Alice Network now!!)
Not Our Kind
Park Avenue Summer
Last Year in Havana
(It’s sequel) Before We Left Cuba
Daisy Jones and the Six
Way too many lol
What she said.
So many good ones coming out. I’m really looking forward to Things to save in a fire by Katherine Center.
I’ve enjoyed books by Katherine Center a lot! I have Things to Save in a Fire on my TBR list!
The Lost Family by Jenna Blum, going to see her in January, so hoping to make the most of my day off.
I have so many but really looking forward to Peter Swanson’s new one out in March ?
How much time do you have? 🙂 I’m looking forward to @Julie‘s book coming out in 2019, I loved My Lovely Wife by Samantha Downing, which comes out in 2019, Things You Save in a Fire, The Favorite Daughter…
Too many to even start listing
So many! I just started Mind Games by Nancy Mehl. Can’t wait to read An Anonymous Girl, The Silent Patient, No Exit, A Curse So Dark and Lonely, Before She Knew Him, just to get started.
Those sound good!
My only list of books will be the Readers Coffee House Book club! I wing it from there. Can you give us the January book @Cathy?
@Cindy believe they’re postef
@Maryann guess I’m meant “Author of the month”
How much time do you have? I do have some specific titles:
Becoming by Michelle Obama
In Pieces by Sally Field
The Poisonwood Bible
The DaVinci Code
Home, Lila and Gilead by Marilynne Robinson
The Invention of Wings and Dance of the Dissident Daughter by Sue Monk Kidd
And I’d like to reread Centennial and Lonesome Dove
I live in Iowa, where the 2020 Presidential campaign started in 2017. My son in law is in the State Senate and has already spent significant time with 4 or 5 candidates. If I keep reading with my head down, I can stay out of the fray.
Becoming and In Pieces are great ❤️?
So, so many. All the ones I didn’t get to read last year PLUS all the new ones that come out this year. Think I can do it?? ?
Where the Crawdads Sing, How to Walk Away, The Great Alone, After You, Still Me, Sold on a Monday…
@Lesley read Crawdads n Sold both were great books
Those books are all terrific! Enjoy!!
@Pat … I’ve been paying attention here!!! I just prefer paperbacks…
Well, I’m going to read some @Cathy, as well as the other founding authors. Since I love series, I’m going to search out more of them. One thing I know-reading got me through 2018, hopefully it will help in 2019 as well.
My favorite is No Place I’d Rather Be by Cathy Lamb. My favorite series is The Seven Sisters by Lucinda Riley. Each book in series features one of the adopted sisters discovering her birthplace.
@Pat What?! Thanks, @Pat~
There too many!!! But my #1 must read this year is The Book Thief. Yes, I know I’m behind but never got the chance to put my hands on it.
The Book Thief is a great start to WWII historical fiction. Ronald Balson’s book, Once we were Brothers and Girl from Berlin, etc. are very good historical fiction also. Storyteller by Jodi Picoult and the Nightingale by Kristin Hannah are excellent too.
So many and I hope I go over my goal of 150 on Goodreads.
Little Mercies, The Last Breath, The Other Woman, The Rain Watcher, With You Always, The Education of Dixie Dupree, All the Ugly and Wonderful Things, The Last Mrs. Parrish, A Great Deliverance, Children of Blood and Bone, there’s a few, lol!
7-1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle, November Road, Next Year in Havana
I have 2 on hold at the library, 3 checked out and one I’m watching for in the stores. I read a lot. Where the Crawdads Sing, Before We Were Strangers and The Girl in the Blue Coat for starters.
So many! My TBR never gets smaller.
Too many to take time out of reading time…………
All of the unread books on my Pad!
I’m up for Tara Road (didn’t finish during Christmas!) Once Upon A River, Bird Box, The Shadows We Hide, Beneath A Scarlet Sky, The Great Santini, I Capture The Castle, and a classic or two
My TBR list is longer than my “I’m waiting for this” list!
I’m with you, Linda.
I’m looking forward to reading Moon Sister by Lucinda Riley which is the next book in the Seven Sisters series and to reading Things You Save in a Fire by Katherine Center. I read 240 books in 2018 and know I’ll enjoy many in 2019.
finishing up a few good reads from 2018.. nothing on the horizon yet. I love to check out recs here!
