That is a staggering list! I hope you find the time to read each of those books.

Sam Sattler said...

Hey, that's not too bad for a reader like you. I'm willing to bet that you'll get through most of these but that the list will be just as long next time you post it. :-)

Literary Feline said...

What a great idea! I love that you linked who recommended the books--that will make it easier to remember later, when you do read the books. Something I always fail to remember.

You've got some great books listed here. One I hope to read this year is The Light Between Oceans. Although, others sound quite good too.

Jackie Bailey said...

That is a great list. I often forget who recommended a specific book so I should probably do something similar. I love the fact that you picked out some books I didn't actually like. I always worry that my slightly negative reviews might put people off so it is good to see you were still drawn to them. Happy reading!

Chris Howard said...

I hate/love when you do these posts :p They always add to my wishlists too!!!

Jeane said...

Bermudaonion- Me, too! Not likely, but I have the hope regardless.

Sam- That's exactly right. It's always like that.

Literary Feline- I always take so long to get around to reading the books, that by the time I've got them in hand I have no recollection of why I wanted to read them in the first place! Thus a little record here.

Jackie- what's your blog? I couldn't find a link back to you...

Chris- just as much as I love/hate your bad bloggers posts! I often add to my lists from those :)
