I had some books on my 2017 TBR that I could not get to in 2017. I am adding some of those books and have also included few more books that I feel I must read in 2018. Most of these are popular books that everyone seems to have read except for me. I am planning to prioritize these books over others that I own.
The ones on my 2017 TBR that I managed to read in 2017:
- Assassin’s Apprentice (DNF)
- The lies of Locke Lamora (DNF)
- Jane Eyre
- Dracula – on my Halloween TBR
I failed very badly to stick with my TBR in 2017. I read based on my mood so I find it hard to stick to a TBR. I pick whatever book catches my fancy and that’s one of the reasons why I prefer having big stacks of unread books on my shelf to pick from.
The books that I am hoping to get to in 2018 are as follows –
1. Classics –
I add some classics to my yearly TBRs since I never pick classics on my own. Last year I managed to read Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights and Dracula which were on my TBR from many years. This year I plan to read the following classics. Anna Karenina is definitely going to be read this year, as I am buddy reading it with Shantala from ShanayaTales. The rest of them I am not so sure but hoping to read in 2018.
2. Travel, Halloween and Christmas TBR –
From last couple of years, I have been making separate TBRs for Halloween and Christmas. This year, I am planning to read IT for Halloween and Little Women for Christmas. I have never read Stephen King or any proper horror book in my life so wish me luck. I am not sure if I will be able to completely read IT. Walden and On the Road are my top priority books on travel/adventure/minimalistic living etc and I hope to get to them this year.
3. SFF –
I have too many unread SFF books on my shelves that I need to read. I chose some fantasy and sci-fi that are pretty famous and sound interesting to me. I already started with “The Grace of kings” and I am loving it.
So this is what I have planned to read in 2018. I am going to throw in some light fantasy/YA fiction/historical fiction etc. as I feel like reading and this is not all the books I will be reading as I am sure I will read more than 15 books (as I am already done with 5 books this year).
What do you have on your 2018 TBR?
