Six Books I Want to Finish Before 2016

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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?
