More Reading Goals

In January, I shared a list of books that I wanted to read in 2017. So far, I have read sixteen, which isn’t bad going in my opinion. Inevitably, however, I have added more books to the list as a consequence of my book buying addiction.

As a result, I thought it would be appropriate to write up a revised list of my 2017 reading goals, as below:

  1. An Unsuitable Job for a Woman, P.D. James
  2. The New Jim Crow, Michelle Alexander
  3. Selected Poems, Langston Hughes
  4. Mule Bone, Zora Neale Hurston & Langston Hughes
  5. The Book of Harlan, Bernice Fadden
  6. Reader I Married Him, Tracey Chevalier
  7. Citizen, Claudia Rankine
  8. Don’t Tell Alfred, Nancy Mitford
  9. The Colour of Water, James McBride
  10. Cane, Jean Toomer
  11. The Little Paris Bookshop, Nina George
  12. My Cousin Rachel, Daphne Du Maurier
  13. Sons of Mississippi, Paul Hendrickson
  14. Uncle Tom’s Cabin, Harriet Beecher Stowe
  15. Murder Has a Motive, Francis Duncan
  16. The Murder at the Vicarage, Agatha Christie
  17. The King’s General, Daphne Du Maurier
  18. The Underground Railroad, Colson Whitehead
  19. Eudora Welty: A Biography, Suzanne Marrs
  20. The Optician of Lampedusa, Emma Jane Kirby.
  21. The Oregon Trail, Rinker Buck

  23. The Princess Diarist, Carrie Fisher
  24. Hillbilly Elegy, J.D. Vance
  25. Homegoing, Yaa Gyasi
  26. Dear Ijeawele or A Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
  27. The Southern Woman, Elizabeth Spencer
  28. Black Gold of the Sun, Ekow Eshun
  29. Men We Reaped, Jesmyn Ward
  30. Rose Cottage, Mary Stewart
  31. All the Rivers, Dorit Rabinyan

    1. Thanks for commenting! I try to set myself a set amount of time to read everyday: about twenty minutes after I come home from work and fifteen minutes before I go to sleep. If you build reading into your daily routine, it is so much easier to get it done. Hope that helps!
