Hello lovelies! Today I’d like to keep you updated and myself accountable by sharing my literary resolution this January. In 2019, I will read 50 books.
Why? Obviously, I do love to read, and on average I can finish a book in a day or two. However, I most often find myself rereading old favorites and staying within particular genres. That is why I have made it a goal to push myself to read new fiction in a variety of genres. You can’t tell from my list so far, but I would like to add more historical fiction and young adult. This listing is by no means full, but here are some things I know I want to read this year.
The Joy Luck Club, by Amy Tan
Tropic of Squalor, by Mary Karr
Works of Love, by Soren Kierkegaard
Either/Or, by Soren Kierkegaard
Conversations with Tim O’Brien, by Patrick A. Smith
The Girl With a Dragon Tattoo, by Stieg Larrson
A Thousand Mornings, by Mary Oliver
Self-Reliance, by Ralph Waldo Emerson
On Education, by Jean-Jacques Rosseau
The Sorrows of Young Werther, by Goethe
Norwegian Wood, by Haruki Murakami
I’d love to hear your recommendations for more books! What are you hoping to read this year? What were your best reads of 2018?
