Reading List

It's a new year full of possibilities. Did you make some resolutions? I'm determined to read more this year and I have started a list over at Goodreads to keep track. Some of the books will be hardcover/paperback books - you know - hard copies. Others, however, will be Kindle books.

Here is what is on my "to be read" list for 2016 so far.

  • A Dangerous Fortune* by Ken Follett. I read his Pillars of the Earth years ago and loved it. I'm hoping I'll enjoy this one as much.
  • The Gospel Truth by Caroline Pignat
  • The Life Changing Magic of Tidying-Up by Marie Kondo Yes, I'm jumping on the band-wagon and going to give this book a try. I have far too much stuff and much of it needs to go.
  • Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis This has been on my "to be read" list for far too long. 
  • The Giver by Lois Lowry
  • Twelve Years a Slave by Solomon Northup
  • Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte This was my absolute favorite book when I was a teenager and it's been that long since I've read it. It's high time I read it again just to see if it's still as good as I remember. 
  • The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerlad There are a number of "classics" I haven't read and this is one.
  • Gods and Kings (Chronicles of the Kings #1) by Lynn Austin (this is the one I'm currently reading) And if I start a series, I usually read all the books so this is going to add to my list since this is the first of a five book series.
I'm going to be continuing to do book reviews throughout the year as well so those will be added in also. I have one I'm reading now called I Hope You Dance by Beth Moran. My review for that will be posted in a couple of weeks. 

What should I add? Any favorites out there?

  1. I read the giver, great book! Much better than the movie!

  2. Looks like a great list! I've mainly been reading mysteries lately although I vary it from time to time. I read the book The Martian just last week. it was so very good!


Oh thank goodness! I'm not here all alone. Thanks for leaving me a comment. It helps that I'm not always talking to myself. Right? Hello?
