20 Books I Need to Read in 2018

You may remember(or not, which would be fine!) that last January I published a list of 20 books I wanted to read that year. Unfortunately I only read a little more than half of them, but it was a good outline of the titles that were particularly important, so I'm doing it again this year!

Some of these are leftover from the last list but most are new...

~A Voice in the Wind by Francine Rivers

(how have I not read this yet??)

~The Scorch Trials by James Daschner

~Emma by Jane Austen

~The Blue Castle by L. M. Montgomery

~12 Ways Your Phone Is Changing You by Tony Reinke

~Openness Unhindered by Rosaria Butterfield

~The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

~The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society by Annie Barrows and Mary Ann Shaffer

~anything by Brandon Sanderson

~Chasing Jupiter by Rachel Coker

~The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin

~A Tree Grows In Brooklyn by Betty Smith

~Cranford by Elizabeth Gaskell

~Desiring God by John Piper

~The Holiness of God by R. C. Sproul

~The Outsiders(as a re-read :D) by S. E. Hinton

~The Sweetest Thing by Elizabeth Musser

~Just Do Something by Kevin de Young

~Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier

~The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde

Have you read any of these? Which books are you planning to read this year? 


  1. I have Cranford on my TBR list for this year - I got the ebook on my Kindle a little while ago, and I haven't got around to reading it yet.

    I've read Emma, it's one of my favorite Jane Austen books. I need to reread The Blue Castle because I couldn't get into it the first time. And I do want to read The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society just because of the title....


    1. It's been one I've been wanting to read for a while as well. Hopefully we both get to it!

      Great! I'm working on Emma now. Haha, yes! That title is beautiful.

  2. So many good books on your list! I love Blue Castle so much! You definitely need to read it pronto!

    1. I know! Yes, I will! It was on my list last year too, but THIS is the year I will finally read it.

  3. I really want to read Chasing Jupiter, Cranford, and The Outsiders, too! And I'll be interested to see what you think of The Blue Castle (I should reread that one) and The Guernsey Literary Etc. :D

    1. We'll have to compare notes on Goodreads once we've both gotten around to reading those. :) I think you would like The Outsiders! I'm looking forward to re-reading it.


Comments are my favorite, seriously. :D But please do remember to remain respectful and all that.
