Books I Meant to Read in 2016

Today's Top Ten Tuesday topic is Books I Meant to Read In 2016 But Didn't.

Whoo boy. There are a lot of books on this list.

  1. All the books from my Bookish Resolutions list that I didn't even try to read.

  2. The End of Your Life Book Club by Will Schwalbe - I started this a couple of years ago, but didn't finish it. I looked at it a couple of times, but just didn't feel like picking it back up.

  3. The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer - This has been on my list for almost 4 years now. I keep hearing great things about it, but I haven't got to it.

  4. The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt - I've heard mixed things about it, but I loved her other books I've read, so I wanted to give it a chance.

  5. Thereby Hangs a Tail by Spence Quinn - Here is another one I've started and quit on. I even still remember what happened in the parts I read. It just sits on my shelf and stares at me.

  6. Mrs. Astor Regrets by Meryl Gordon - This one has been on my shelf for 3 years. I nabbed a copy when the library discarded it. I'm enamored with rich people problems books.

  7. Princesses Behaving Badly by Linda Rodriquez McRobbie - This is a collection of feminist minibiographies of fairy tales. I'm in.

  8. Lexicon by Max Barry - I started this one a couple of years ago. It was not what I expected it to be. It was interesting, and I want to finish it, now that I know what to expect.

  9. Careless People: Murder, Mayem, and the Invention of the Great Gatsby by Sarah Churchwell - That's pretty much the extent of it. It's the story of the Fitzgeralds and how they came around to writing The Great Gatsby.

  10. At Large and At Small by Anne Fadiman - She is the daughter of Clifton Fadiman of Great Books fame. This is a collection of essays. Yay!

So basically, I just gave you the top of my Goodreads TBR list. But I meant to read these last year. And the year before that. And so on.

What did you mean to read but didn't?
