10 Books I Meant to Read Last Year…But Didn’t

Fiction (except Fantasy)

  1. The Sun Down Motel – Simone St. James
    • I’ve read all of St. James’ books, except this one. I may get this as an audiobook, but I have a few others to get through first.
  2. The Secret, Book, & Scone Society – Ellery Adams
    • This author was on the list of authors my mom left behind, and seemed like a fun read. I haven’t been able to lay hands on a copy yet, but I hope to.
  3. The Glass Hotel – Emily St. John Mandel
    • I was captivated by Station Eleven, and am really looking forward to reading more of her work.
  4. Maisie Dobbs – Jacqueline Winspear
    • I love reading mysteries from between the World Wars. A lot of places recommend Maisie Dobbs, so I added her to list. I just never made it to her.

Fantasy/Science Fiction

  1. The Farm – Joanne Ramos
    • I’ve heard that this one feels more true-to-life than is entirely comfortable. I love books like that, and this one seems particularly interesting dealing with reproduction and rights of surrogates.
  2. The Eye of The World – Robert Jordan
    • I won’t lie – I didn’t start this because the series goes on forever. Once I start, I won’t be able to take a break. I’m already reading all of Raymond E Feist’s books, I can’t handle a 2nd insane series right now.
  3. The Fifth Season – N.K. Jemisin
    • I’m kind of mad at myself about this one. The start of a trilogy that looks so interesting and complex and amazing. I can’t believe I haven’t read this one yet. It’s in a box at the moment, but I need to dig it out. That’s right – I own it and still haven’t read it. I’m ashamed.
  4. The Priory of the Orange Tree – Samantha Shannon
    • I started this last spring, and I have no idea why I put it down – I think I did it unintentionally. I’m not going to judge me – last year was a mess.


  1. You Are a Badass – Jen Sincero
    • I bought this book with my Christmas money in order to make it easier for me to read. I’ve heard many conflicting reviews, but after the past few years, I could use a “you can do anything” book, so I’m going to give it a go.
  2. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck – Mark Manson
    • Another Christmas money buy, it’s the exact opposite of the book above. I’m fairly sensitive and if I get anything out of the book, I won’t be mad about it.
