I’m in the mood to do a book tag, so here’s one. I found this tag over on Kristin Kraves Books.
Lol, I’ll most likely mention all the books that were in my reading plans post.
An author you’d like to read that you’ve never read:
I’ve heard such great things about her work that I’m very curious and would like to experience her amazingness myself.
A book you’d like to read:
Killers of the Flower Moon by David Grann
I added this book to my TBR after reading Lisa’s review of it, but have yet to buckle down and read it. My interest in it was piqued again last year when I listened to an interview with the author on Longform podcast, and still I didn’t read the book. My plan is to read it before this year ends.
A classic you’d like to read:
The Iliad by Homer
I know I don’t need to read this before reading Madeline Miller’s Song of Achilles, but I really want to. If only I can get started on it already. I keep procrastinating or reading a few words before switching to something else.
A book you’d like to reread:
The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan
I completed my reread of the Percy Jackson series last year, so I’d like to move on to the Heroes of Olympus series. I enjoyed these books the first time I read them and am sure I will this time through as well.
A book you’ve had for ages and want to read:
Jane Steele by Lyndsay Faye
I’ve had this for a while and can’t believe I haven’t yet read it. I reread Jane Eyre because of it and surprisingly enjoyed the read that second time through. My plan was to then read Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys, which is also based on Jane Eyre, before reading Jane Steele. But that plan backfired because I got distracted by other books.
A big book you’d like to read:
Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke
The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas
Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell because I saw the TV show and enjoyed it (although I didn’t finish it); and The Count of Monte Cristo because Merphy Napier’s review got me curious about it.
An author you’ve previously read and would like to read more of:
Bent Heavens by Daniel Kraus
I think I requested a review copy… I can’t remember if I did, but I read The Shape of Water, which Kraus cowrote with Guillermo del Toro, and loved it so much that since then I’ve wanted to read a book authored by Kraus alone. I’m looking forward to this one.
A book you got for Christmas and would like to read:
Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
I bought this around Christmas time intending to read it then, but that didn’t happen. If I manage to read it this year, that would be great.
A series you want to read from start to finish:
Witches subseries of Discworld
I’d have to reread Equal Rites, but if I can complete these this year, I’ll consider my participation in the Turtle Recall reading challenge a success.
A series you want to finish that you’ve already started:
The Strain trilogy by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan
Definitely the Strain, although I didn’t like the second book much. However, I would like to complete the series to see how it wraps up.
Do you set reading goals? If so, how many books do you want to read in 2020?
50 (100, if I can)
