Aside from uni books, 2017 is going to be the year where I read the books I genuinely want to read without the pressure of an overambitious goal. As my goal is 25 books, and around 15 will probably be for uni, I’ve selected 5 that I want to get to most.
Outlander – Diana Gabaldon
I can’t tell you how much I want to read this, but last year I felt bad if I went to pick it up because of its length. This year, however, I feel no guilt.
The People in the Trees – Hanya Yanagihara
A Little Life blew me away. Need I say more?
Les Misérables – Victor Hugo
YESSSSSS. I CAN FINALLY READ THIS! I’m halfway through, I love it, but it requires time and dedication. Last year I felt I couldn’t dedicate myself to it because of my stupidly high goal but NOW I CAN. (Yes, I’m excited to read it).
The Bell Jar – Sylvia Plath
This has been on every ‘to read this year / month / readathon’ list and I still haven’t actually read it yet…
Brave New World – Aldous Huxley
I love love love adult dystopia but have yet to read this. It needs to be done.
What books do you want to get to most this year?
