Books I Wish I'd Read in 2018

This could be a very long post, but I'll try to keep it short. Here are some books I wish I could have got to this year. I'm not being too hard on myself because it was a pretty busy year, but there will always be regrets.

The Goldfinch

The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt - This has been sitting on my TBR the longest. It used to be number 3 or 4, but I did read the others in front of it this year. Some progress has been made, but there are only a couple of books still on my list from 2013 and this is one of them.

Still Life

Still Life by Louise Penny - And another year goes by that I didn't get this one read. Another year in which Penny wrote another book in the series.

Now I Rise

Now I Rise by Kiersten White - I loved the first book in this series so much last year, but I just never got around to picking up the second one.

Kitty Genovese

Kitty Genovese:The Murder, The Bystanders, the Crime That Changed America by Kevin Cook - I've been fascinated by this case for decades. I even took this book off the shelf to read and didn't get to it.


Educated by Tara Westover - This ended up on all the end-of-year best lists. I'm kind of aggrieved that I didn't get to it.

What did you miss this year that you wish you'd read?
