Books for 2016

As I said before, one of my resolutions for 2016 is to read more books, although I should have been more specific as it should really be to read more books from my shelves and buy less new books. To try and accomplish this, I’ve written a shortlist of books that I want to read this year. Some have been lent or given to me by friends, others I’ve recently (or not so recently bought) and I don’t want them to languish any longer on my shelves.

So, in no particular order, here’s the books that I want to read this year:

  • Claire Fuller – Our Endless Numbered Days
  • Laura Barnett – The Versions of Us
  • Jeff Vander Meer – Annihilation
  • Jeff Vander Meer – Authority
  • Jeff Vander Meer – Acceptance
  • Jesse Andrews – Me, Earl and The Dying Girl
  • Cheryl Strayed – Wild
  • George R. R. Martin – Dangerous Women
  • Carrie Hope Fletcher – All I Know Now
  • Frances Brody – Death of an Avid Reader
  • Jodi Picoult – Leaving Time
  • Rainbow Rowell – Fangirl
  • Kody Keplinger – Lying Out Loud
  • Thomas Meehan – Annie
  • John Sentamu’s Life Stories
  • Nicky Gumbel – The Jesus Lifestyle
  • Kody Keplinger – The Duff
  • Brandon Sanderson – The Rithmatist
  • Brandon Sanderson – The Way of Kings
  • Anne Bronte – Agnes Grey
  • Maria V. Snyder – Poison Study
  • Maria V. Snyder – Magic Study
  • Maria V. Snyder – Fire Study

That’s 23 books, which shouldn’t be too much of a stretch, but I’m sure I’ll end up buying more books throughout the year and end up not finishing the list anyway!
