2018 Possible Reading List

Over the years, my to-read list gets longer, and my days get shorter. My intention is to finish 2 books every month and write a review. Some months I’ll have more, I hope to never have less. Some books will require a few months of side reading in order to finish. Some books I’ll read because they were part of a book club. Since I can’t anticipate those, these are the books that I do plan to finish reading next year.

  • The Harry Potter Series by J.K Rowling. I’ve read them before, I plan to read them again. However, due to my inability to separate my bias emotion from these books, I won’t write a book review on them. I will, however, tweet about it.
  • Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli. I’ve heard great things so far. I will try to read it before the movie comes out.
  • The Inexplicable Logic of My Life by Benjamin Alire Saenz. I liked Aristotle and Dante so I plan to give this a shot.
  • The Stone Virgins by Yvonne Vera. Simply because I own the book and it’s about time I finish a book I own instead of renting out new books.
  • The Color of Magic by Terry Pratchett. I started it but didn’t get a chance to finish so 2018 will be the year.
  • The Tiger’s Child by Torey Hayden. This is the sequel to One Child which is a devastating book if you haven’t already read it.
  • Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. I have a friend who says it’s a sin that I haven’t read any of her work yet.
  • The Shack by William Paul Young. It belongs to a friend and I really ought to return it. It’s been 2 years!
  • Journey of Souls by Michael Newton. I tried reading this two years ago but couldn’t finish it. I will try again now that I have a friend willing to read it.
  • The Beauty Myth by Naomi Wolf. I didn’t get a chance to read it when it was the book of the month in Our Shared Shelf (a book club that Emma Watson started on Goodreads).
  • The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand. This is probably one of those books that will take months to finish!
  • Turtles All the Way Down by John Green. I was planning not to read it so soon but curiosity got the best of me.
  • Good Omens by Niel Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. Also a book a friend lent me….3 years ago. Gosh, I have a bad habit.
  • Practical Demonkeeping by Christopher Moore. Because…I also have to return this book to a friend. Phew, good thing they don’t charge like libraries.

This is reading list plan. Realistically, I’ll get distracted with the many books of the months from the many book clubs that I belong to. If you have any book that you would like me to read and review, let me know and I’ll try to squeeze it in.

Let’s go 2018!

My name is Griselda (I also go by Gray or Gris…they’re easier to pronounce). I am a book reader with a lot of opinions and need for discussions. My hope is that I will be able to have interesting conversations based on the passages I’m reading, and if possible, book recommendations on what to read next.
