2015: Let Us Talk Books.

My reading list for this year is broken up into three categories: Finish, Read, and Re-read. As it is dangerously close to mid-January and I have not read a page, I really should get to work.

I will be linking up with Melody for this post, so that I can pour over the reading lists of others.

A handful of this year's choices!


Finish:


Mere Christianity- I am several chapters in, but I think I need to take a large chunk of time and read it all at once, because C.S. Lewis requires a little bit of getting used to each time I delve in.

Anna Karenina- I am enjoying it so far, but I still get name confused. Russians.


Read:

Count of Monte Cristo: An oldie that I have not read yet. 

Yes, Please: Amy Poehler, of course. I'm hoping to love it like Bossypants and Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?

My Sisters the Saints: I realized that this year I had an oddly large number of fiction books on my list so I needed a good Catho read!

Brothers on Life: Forgive me a guilty pleasure. I read a few years ago that Matt Czuchry (of Gilmore Girls and The Good Wife fame) had written a book. Glancing through it, it is more like poetry and the sort, but I am intrigued!

The Way Forward: I might be a sucker, but as a social justice junkie, I went against my instincts to avoid books written by politicians for Paul Ryan's work. We shall see.

A Couple of Blaguards: I am a giant Frank McCourt fan girl, so this is self explanatory. 

A Monk Swimming: Frank's brother Malachy writes also!

A Lucky Child: Surviving Auschwitz as a Young Boy: I can't remember how this landed on my radar, but I bet I will cry.

Breaking Through: Catholic Women Speak for Themselves: Catching up on something I should have read two years ago.

Veronica Mars: Mr. Kiss and Tell: I have been waiting since October for this. It is released sometime in January, so I can promise to have a book finished this month. Ha!


Re-read:

Great Expectations: It is my favorite classic, yet I did not own a copy until recently, so I have to read it again!

There you have it! What books are you dying to get into this year? If you need some ideas, Swing by the link up via Melody!

  1. My Sisters the Saints was great! I really loved it. I've always wanted to read CS Lewis but I think it would always be on my "Finish" list as well as Anna Karenina, haha.

    Thanks for linking up! :)
