How another year has gone by I am not sure!
I began the year with Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights and Cat Marnell’s How to Murder Your Life. Then Nina LaCour’s We Are Okay and Alana Massey’s All the Lives I Want. I was enthralled by Big Little Lies and This Raging Light. I devoured both books (so far) in The Amatuers series by Sara Shepard. I reread Margaret Atwood’s first novel The Edible Woman which EVERYONE should read. Tess Sharpe’s Far From You, Becky Albertali‘s The Upside of Unrequited…
When Dimple Met Rishi, Moxie, Kill the Boy Band, Eliza and her Monsters, The Nowhere Girls,Far From the Tree, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before and PS I Still Love You were all amazing YA novels that deserve every bit of love as they receive if not MORE.
I Love Dick, and Made for Love made me delightfully uncomfortable. We’re Going to Need More Wine is just triumphant. Juliet Takes a Breath – Gabby Rivera impressed me with her talent on her first coming of age queer novel. Surpassing Certainty made me fall in love with Janet Mock even more.
I read 70+ books out of a goal of 50.
This upcoming semester will be my last.
I will start 2018 as I did in 2017 – with Wuthering Heights. Why? Because I am writing my thesis on it, along with Jane Eyre, Flowers in the Attic, My Sweet Audrina, and The Yellow Wallpaper.
I have a lot of reading and writing plans for 2018… here’s hoping.
