It’s Tuesday! Thanks to That Artsy Reader Girl for hosting this weekly link-up. This week’s topic is probably the easiest yet: books that I meant to read last year but didn’t get to!
2018 was a slow reading year for me, so there were a ton of books that I would have loved to tackle. The list below includes some books NOT published in 2018 because I can never stay ahead of the curve!
I don’t read enough by Native American authors (maybe… never?) and really wanted to experience this one. I was even able to snag it from the library, but wasn’t able to get to it before returning it. 2019, perhaps?
Dr. Gay is brilliant and I want to read everything she’s written. This is on my shelf and I can pick it up anytime. Why haven’t I?
Another that’s also on my shelf. I was certain I was going to read it last summer given that it was the 100th anniversary of their deaths, but I didn’t!
Another that I waited FOREVER for and then returned to the library unread. I’ve now bought a copy and it’s on my shelf. I WILL read this in 2019!
This was the 2017 Book of the Year for the Book of the Month Club. I’ve never read anything by John Boyne, but really wanted to see what the fuss was about. I have a physical copy on my shelf, but it’s a beast and I’m not sure I’ll actually get to it in 2019.
This won the Bailey’s Prize in 2016, was a Barack Obama pick in 2017, and we even picked it for my book club at work (after I nominated it!!) and I still haven’t read it. It’s been on my shelf since the winter of 2016 (after I ordered it from the UK because it wasn’t printed in the States yet) — 2019 – here I come!!
Can you believe that the last book that I read by Lauren Groff was The Monsters of Templeton in 2008??? I thought 2018 would be the year to change that, but…. not quite.
Another that just seems to be on everyone’s list.
This is on my Kindle and is what the PBS show is based on. I love everything about the British royal families and would love to read this!
Okay — where should I start??!!
