Before posting my reading goal for this year, I considered including a list of books that I should read before the year ends but scrapped the idea. I thought that I should be spontaneous with my reading, as what I’ve been doing with the monthly Required Readings but then I saw some blog posts of required reading lists for the year that I reconsidered. I can actually choose just a few books, and as much as possible include them in the monthly required reading lists that I do. It will then be hitting two (or three) birds with one stone because I have several books on my physical TBR pile that I planned to read but for some reason, got distracted with other books (by ebooks, especially), so maybe by making a list of the books I want to read soon, I can get started on those books that have been with me for years already.
So with that, I am adding another reading goal for the year and that is to read the following books:
- Home by Marilynne Robinson
Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri
- The History of Love by Nicole Krauss
- Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Atonement by Ian McEwan Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner
- The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling
The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
I will not assign a particular month for these books because I’ll let my mood for a particular month decide, but still make sure that I choose books to read from among the items on this list.
Let’s see how this goes, yes? 🙂
