Every year there are a handful of books that I just keep meaning to read but never quite get around to. They sit in the back of my brain and pester me until I do something about them. I'm going to make a list of them and see if that makes them hush, and if not, maybe it will spur me to read them. This list is only ordered by how loudly they are clamouring in my head as I write the list, and for handy reference tells me where I can find a copy of the book without spending anything.
There are four unfinished books that I really hope to finish one day, the first two before the end of the year:
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle (personal copy)
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald (Nook)
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline (Rawlins library and SD Titles to Go)
Mr. Penumbra's 24 Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan (Rawlins library)
Then these are the ones that are still waiting to bre read:
The Firebird by Susanna Kingsley (SD Titles to Go), which requires me to read-
The Winter Sea by Susanna Kingsley (SD Titles to Go).
Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo (personal copy)
Alleigant by Veronica Roth (SD Titles to Go AND Rawlins Library) I KNOW!! How have I not?
Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor (SFPL)
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon (personal copy, SD Titles to Go)
More backlist by Edith Layton (Scribd)
The Rule of Scoundrels series by Sarah MacLean (SD Titles to Go)
Courtney Milan's first series (SD Titles to Go)
When She Was Wicked by Anne Barton (Nook)
The Proposal and The Arraingement by Mary Balough (SD Titles to Go)
Salt Sugar Fat by Michael Moss (SD Titles to Go)
Anything by Sherry Thomas (some on SD Titles to Go)
Me Before You by JoJo Moyes (Rawlins library)
11/22/63 by Stephen King (Nook)
And then there are the series that I will never finish, but I'm sure just putting them on the list jinxes them....
In Death by JD Robb
Harry Dresden by Jim Butcher
Weather Wardens by Rachel Caine
The Hollows by Kim Harrison
The Black Dagger Brotherhood by JR Ward
....to name a few.
And I'm sure if I looked at my Goodreads list or my Nook library or my library hold list or any one of the many "Best of 2013" lists that are popping up that I could make this even longer.
What book is yelling at you to get read right now?
