Books I Planned to Read in 2015
Two months to go. Current feeling: doable if I divest myself of a job.
- •The Right StuffI'm about an optimistic one-third of the way through this and I haven't touched it for months. Lord, give me Rory Gilmore's resolve.
- •A Tree Grows in BrooklynSomehow made it up through college without ever being required to read this. I'm a few chapters in and while I want to read more, I keep getting derailed. But the brother is named Neeley, so I shall persevere!
- •Veil: The Secret Wars of the CIA 1981-1987When the nuances of global policy on 'The Americans' leave me feeling lost, my husband will give me incredibly detailed background info. I asked him how he knows all this stuff (we were both children of the '80s) and he gave me this book. It sat on my nightstand for a couple months, but who am I kidding?
- •Not That Kind of GirlI bought it and after a couple chapters realized I had 'This is my Experience' essay fatigue. It's not your fault, Lena. One day I'll come back to you.
- •Yes PleaseI love you, Amy. I don't know what's wrong with me. Part of me suspects the title's missing comma is the issue.
- •All the Light We Cannot SeeRequired 2015 purchase, right? Impulse buy at Costco, seems like a good one for Christmas break.
- •The Blind AssassinI've never read Margaret Atwood and feel I'm probably doing myself a disservice, but also worried I won't be into her.
- •The ClaspI have a complicated relationship with Sloane Crosley's writings.
- •A Zelda memoirI don't know, I'm a white girl with hipster tendencies.
- •TrinityWe own an original copy and I'm terrified of touching it with my grubby little hands.
- •The Book With No PicturesGetting this for my nephew for Christmas and waiting to read it with him.
- •Approximately 17 zillion others.
