Kelsey Just like everyone else, I'm sure it'll change! The first two books on my list aren't new releases..just books I want to finish by the end of the year!

3.) The Librarian of Auschwitz
4.) Dear Fahrenheit 451: A Librarian's Love Letters and Break-Up Notes to the Books in Her Life
5.) I, Eliza Hamilton
6.) The Jane Austen Project
7.) Magpie Murders

I've been wanting to read Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy for years, but every time I go to the bookstore, I always forget to look for it.

That's so cool! Too bad I don't have a Kindle :P However, they're selling used copies for under $4. I may be tempted to snatch up a copy!

YES to Turtles All the Way Down...please let us know how that one goes! I don't know when I'll have a copy.

Also YES to The Exorcist...read it several years ago and planning a re-read this Halloween season (better get started eh?!)

Also YES to Uncommon Type: Some Stories. I'm a Tom Hanks fan so yeah! I heard he's a good writer.

What the Hell Did I Just Read sounds interesting...might have to look it up.

Caraval was one of our recent Books of the Month!

Great list, Lupe!

Bkwmlee | 408 comments Boy, this was definitely a hard exercise! There are so many books on my radar right now, having to narrow it down to just 10 is, well, torture, lol!

Anyway, here’s my list. All of these are books that have already been released and have been on my TBR for awhile...(note that the books are not in any particular order):

1) Uncommon Type: Some Stories by Tom Hanks (I’ve been wanting to read this one since I first heard about it – who doesn’t love Tom Hanks?)

2) The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro (this one is on my challenge list for this year – super-excited to read this classic from our newly crowned Nobel Laureate!)

3) The Heart's Invisible Furies by John Boyne (I was supposed to read this last month but didn’t get to it – need to find time for it next month)

4) The Trick: A Novel by Emanuel Bergmann

5) Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford (after reading Love and Other Consolation Prizes last month – a book I fell in love with – I am now prioritizing both of Jamie Ford’s previous books to read this year)

6) Songs of Willow Frost by Jamie Ford (ditto above)

7) Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng (also prioritizing because I read Little Fires Everywhere last month and loved it so I want to read Celeste Ng’s first book, which I’ve been told is even better!)

8) If The Creek Don't Rise by Leah Weiss (this one has been on my radar ever since a bunch of my GR friends read it and had high praise for it – was able to snatch up a copy during one of Amazon’s daily deal things so got it sitting in my Kindle at the moment)

9) The Jane Austen Project by Kathleen A. Flynn

10) Pachinko by Min Jin Lee
