Riffing on this week’s Top Ten Tuesday subject , I decided that I wanted to make a list of books I want to read coming out this year. Clicking on a title links to its Goodreads page if you want to find out more.
(* = books I will almost certainly buy because I loved the author’s last book)
The Glass Hotel by Emily St. John Mandel*
Weather by Jenny Offill*
Transcendent Kingdom by Yaa Gyasi*
Untamed by Glennon Doyle (the lone memoir on my list)
Deacon King Kong by James McBride
Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid (cheating because it was released in late December, but close enough)
American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins
The Resisters by Gish Jen
The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett
The Truants by Kate Weinberg
New Waves by Kevin Nguyen
House of Trelawney by Hannah Mary Rothschild
I could have kept going because there are so many intriguing books coming out this year but 12 seemed like a nice number on which to settle. It’ll be fun to see how many of these I will have actually read by the end of the year.
Any of these look interesting to you?
