I’ve not been too great about keeping up on the blog with all of the books I’ve been reading, but I haven’t felt super compelled since I haven’t come across any fantastic ones I felt like sharing. However, I feel very ambitions this year and would like to branch out and read some books I’ve been telling myself I will for ages and never got around to it. I hope to read them all, but if not I hope to read as many as I can.
The Innocent by Ian McEwan – By the author of Atonement, this story follows a young British man working in Berlin during the cold war. I’ve actually already started this book and I’m really liking it so far, so I’ll be sure to write a review when I’m finished.
Call The Midwife by Jennifer Worth – I absolutely adore this TV series, and with it just beginning its fifth season, I think it’s time I finally get on and read the trilogy. I’m sure it will be even better than the already amazing TV adaptation.
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn – Guys, I am so behind the times. I’ve been wanting to read this book for ages, but the library in Australia never had it in stock (right??) and I hate buying books so I just never got around to it. This year I’m finally going to read this book, no more excuses or procrastination!
Dark Places by Gillian Flynn – After hearing about Gone Girl I also heard of this other Gillian Flynn book and it comes highly recommended, so I can’t wait to get my hands on it.
The Secret History by Donna Tartt – After reading The Goldfinch I’ve been wanting to read this book as well. Although The Goldfinch wasn’t my favorite book, Donna Tartt’s prose is beautiful and this book sounded fascinating, so it was enough to grab me.
The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins – I really want to read this book before I see the movie, and guys, I really want to see the movie. I haven’t read a good thriller in a long time and I think this list has me set for the year.
All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr – I’ve heard amazing things about this book and it takes place in my favorite time period – WWII, so I can’t wait to get my hands on it this year and finally read it.
The Paying Guests by Sarah Waters – Another book that comes highly recommended. War, love, and crime all rolled into one, I mean what could be any better.
I can’t wait to finally read these books this year and I’m hoping by putting my reading goals here on the blog it will help me not make excuses. As much as I love my library e-book app, it doesn’t have a great selection of “popular” titles, so I’m going to need to get out of the house and acquire these another way! What books are on your 2016 reading list?
