Top 10 Books I’m Most Looking Forward to Reading in 2015
I am stoked about beginning another year of reading. (Forgive me. Do people use the word “stoked” anymore?) More than any particular book, I’m looking forward to ticking off my various bookish challenges for the year. Not that I’m not interested in which titles will do it.
Here are ten of the books I’m most looking forward to reading this year.
Brown Girl Dreaming, Jacqueline Woodson
Reason: It’s memoir. It’s poetry. And everyone is reading it.
Better than Before: Making and Breaking Our Everyday Habits to Be Happier, Stronger, and More Productive (Really), Gretchen Rubin
Reason: I love Gretchen Rubin’s books. I’d read her grocery lists if she’d publish them.[due out on March 17]
Nora Webster: A Novel, Colm ToibinReason: I’m always looking for good character study fiction.
In Cold Blood, Truman CapoteReason: A nonfiction classic? How could I not have read it before?
Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania, Erik LarsonReason: I’ve only read one other book by Larson, but almost all of his titles appeal to me.
[due out on March 10]
The Wright Brothers, David McCulloughReason: I’ve wanted to read a book by McCullough, and I love a good biography about historical figures.
[due out on May 5]
Mansfield Park, Jane AustenReason: I’m slowly working my way through Austen’s books, knowing I’ll never read them again for the first time.
Yes Please, Amy PoehlerReason: Okay, I barely know who Amy Poehler is, but everyone’s reading this, and sometimes I like to just hop on the train to see where it goes.
The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio, Terry RyanReason: I’m excited to have set a goal to re-read some of my favorites this year, and this will be the first. The book is much more positive than the movie.
Early Warning: A Novel, Jane SmileyReason: It’s the second in the series, and I enjoyed the first one very much.
