Two days ago I made a post with my thoughts on reading goals and how they just don’t work for me. So I wanted to emphasize, that this list, that I will introduce in a second, is not really a goal, but more of a wish. I don’t strive to read these books this year, but rather hope I get to them at some point, and if not, that’s not a disaster.
So there’s been a bunch of books that caught my eye in 2018, but that I never managed to read, and I wanted to sum them up so I won’t forget them, and maybe finally get to them in 2019!
- Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman.
I’ve really been meaning to pick up this book ever since the hype around it started, it sounds so interesting, but I just haven’t gotten to it yet.
- Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë
I have this really great copy of this book, a beautiful children’s edition with fairly large letters, but I just keep postponing reading it. But I think I might really enjoy it, so here’s to 2019.
- The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer
I haven’t even seen the movie, but it sounds like such a cute and funny book, that I just need to read it, I just haven’t gotten to it yet.
- The Gloaming by Kirsty Logan
I have this book. I own this book. I even took pictures of it for my review and Instagram posts, so sure I was I would read it this year. But then I didn’t. Maybe it’s just not the time yet, because it seems like an awesome book. Soon, though, very soon.
- The Uncommon Type by Tom Hanks
Ever since I saw the announcement that this book would come out, I’ve been meaning to read it. I think Tom Hanks is a great actor and I have a feeling he’s a great story teller as well (because what are actors but story tellers). I just haven’t gotten to it yet.
- Eat Sweat Play by Anna Kessel
I’ve been meaning to read more non-fiction and this book sounds suuuuper interesting, but I still haven’t got around to it yet. Sigh. This list is getting very long.
- Men Explain Things to Me by Rebecca Solnit
I’ve been meaning to read this book for forever. But I’m giving it to my mom for Christmas so fingers crossed I’ll read it as well.
There’s probably more but I’m stopping before I’m getting disheartened!
What are some books you’ve been wanted to read and hope you will get to them in 2019? What books are you looking forward to reading this year? Let me know in the comments!
