Hello friends, I’ve done a blog about the books I read in 2017, so I thought I would do one about the books I plan to read (and actually have already read) in 2018. Some of these were presents, some I picked up from a secondhand book shop in Scarborough over Christmas and the others have been recommended by friends.
Have you read any of these? What did you think?
I’ve just finished Conversations With Friends (loved it, the breakdown of relationships, an honest depiction of loneliness, smart and creative characters – they felt so real to me.) I’ve started The Girl with All the Gifts (so far, very much enjoying it, it’s had my heart racing when I felt I should be reading something a little slower paced before bed!)
This is my reading list in full (I’m also desperate to read Patti Smith – Devotion, but I’m going to read all of these first….)
M. R Carey – The Girl with All the Gifts
Sally Rooney – Conversations with Friends
Yuval Noah Harari – Sapiens
Alan Bradley – The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie
Will Storr – The Heretics
Lori Aurelia Williams – When Kambia Elaine Flew in from Neptune
Patricia Lockwood – Priestdaddy
Roxane Gay – Hunger
Gabriel Tallent – My Absolute Darling
A good list, no?
