You guys, there’s like six weeks left of the year. The last few months have just zipped by. I don’t even know what happened. I have so many things to do and read. And, since I like making TBR lists and then not reading them, I thought I’d make one for the end of the year. As of right now, I would really like to finish another fourteen books before 2016, because then I will have read 100 books this year. Which is pretty awesome. It’s also pretty ambitious. So I’m just going to pick six for now. Here are the six books I would really love to finish in the last six weeks of 2015:
- All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. This has been on pretty much all of my TBR lists this year. And I finally started it yesterday! Ok, I read two pages. Never mind the fact that I’m reading three other books (they’re all ebooks, and they were hurting my eyes). It’s been a while since I’ve read historical fiction, and I’m excited about this one. I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about it.
- A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking. I started this a few months ago, and just recently picked it back up again. I am really not a science or math person, but I really enjoy Stephen Hawking, and he actually explains things very well in his book. And by that, I mean I can kind of sort of grasp some of the concepts. Also, it’s the most unfinished bestseller of all time, so I’m determined to finish it.
- Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. I’ve been to Louisa May Alcott’s house. I have watched Little Women, the movie, about a hundred times. But I have never read the book. (I think I actually read a good chunk of it when I was twelve or thirteen, but I definitely didn’t finish it.) It’s my last book for the PopSugar Reading Challenge – a book that takes place at Christmas.
- Trigger Warning by Neil Gaiman. I was lucky enough to get a signed copy of this back when it came out, earlier this year. And I’d meant to read it this week, because I’m going to meet Neil Gaiman tomorrow (have I mentioned that enough times?). But it didn’t happen. I think I’m just going to start reading one or two stories at a time between all my other reading.
- Someday Someday Maybe by Lauren Graham. I watched the entire series of Gilmore Girls twice this year alone. And this book was written by Lorelei Gilmore herself (actually, no, just the actress who played her), so I feel like I need to read it. I’ve actually read the first few pages, and really liked them, but wasn’t in the mood. Hopefully, I will pick it up again.
- Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone the Illustrated Edition by J. K. Rowling and Jim Kay. It’s been a while since I’ve read Harry Potter, and I’m saving this as a treat to myself after I finish NaNoWriMo and my Romantic Lit class (and the twenty-page research paper on Jane Austen and Mary Wollstonecraft that I haven’t started yet).
What book(s) do you really want to finish before the end of the year?
