Since I keep saying that I want to read more books that I am interested in reading, here is a list of books that I am currently interested in. Let's see how many of them I get to this year.

Completed: 6

After You
End of Watch
The City of Mirrors
Signal
Libriomancer
Ready Player One
Fahrenheit 451
Steelheart
Hidden Bodies
What Was Mine
Red Queen
Bitterblue
Tell the Wolves I'm Home
UnDivided

I also want to read a few that have been on my TBR for a long time:
The Book Thief
The Light Between Oceans
The Wind Through the Keyhole

Some of these books will overlap with other challenges and the list may change throughout the year based on what I feel like reading, since it is interest based. I hope to at least read a few that I want to read just because they look interesting.
