Tuesday again; happy day! This week’s post is devoted to books that were released last year that I meant to read, but didn’t get around to it. This is pretty self explanatory, so I’ll get to the books.
- We Are the Ants by Shaun David Hutchinson
- I’ve heard such great things about this book all year. I’ve been meaning to get to it, but I just haven’t made time for it yet. This will definitely be on my list to read this year.
- The Swans of Fifth Avenue by Melanie Benjamin
- My friend Katie gave me this book early last year to read. It’s still on my self. I should really get to it. #readkatiesbooks
- Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys
- I’ve heard a lot about this book being amazing, but after two WWII books last year, I knew it’d have to wait. I should be ready to read another a little later this year.
- The First Time She Drowned by Kerry Kletter
- This title is pretty sweet, and this book keeps coming up again and again. After reading More Than This in 2016, this title is even more appealing.
- When We Collided by Emery Lord
- A lot of mixed reviews about this ranging from gushing to hating. This seems like the perfect book for me to read in order to form my own opinion on it.
- OCDaniel by Wesley King
- I was randomly browsing Goodreads when I came across this. As someone close to me has OCD, I’m always interested to see how characters are fictionalized.
- Before the Fall by Noah Hawley
- This was my first Book of the Month purchase! (Why haven’t I read it?) The story seemed really intriguing, but I hit a little bit of a slump when I first got it and never came back. I’m going to need to read this fairly early in the year.
- The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis
- I’ve heard this called a great feminist novel. I’m game.
- In Other Words by Jhumpa Lahiri
- I love Lahiri. She’s one of my favorite authors. I also like the concept of reading and writing. A book by one of my favorite authors about reading and writing? Say no more.
- The Paper Menagerie and Other Stories by Ken Liu
- I really like short stories, but don’t read nearly enough short story collections. I saw a review of this one and it seemed like it would be good. The more I looked into it, it seems it has a science fiction-y feeling. I’m not a big sci-fi fan, but I’m willing to give it a try.
So those are my books. I have to definitely make sure to read them this year at some point!
Until Next Time World…
