Theresa~OctoberLace (octoberlace) | 18 comments It's New Year's Eve, and my list is locked. It's comprised of some books I've wanted to read, but hadn't gotten to, some old favorites to re-read, and some others I added in compiling the list. I hope to get them all read in 2018.

Bad Cat, Kristin Lavransdatter, One Hundred Years of Solitude, Watership Down, and War and Peace are all re-reads of some favorites, while David Copperfield and The Name of the Rose have been on my TBR list too long. I have a very large cross stitch piece I'll be working on this year, and having familiar audiobooks read by my Echo while I stitch is so relaxing!

Aubrey (korrick) | 2357 comments I'm looking forward to your thoughts on Romola, Theresa. That book has all the mixed reviews of a true lesser known work by a famous author.
