I have finally accomplished the nigh impossible. I've winnowed my over 900 want to read list down to 36 novels I must read this year. I settled on 36, because, as you can see from the array below, 36 is a pretty special number. Not only is it the square number of 6, it is also a triangular number. You can find out more about how amazing 36 is by clicking on the above link. The other reason I've settled for 36, is because last year I read just over 40 of the 58 books on my list. I figure 36 will be a cakewalk. (note that I didn't finish 18 of those books and 18 X 2 = 36)
Some of these books are sure to take me out of my comfort zone.
Others will be like a visit with old friends. Ok, so I might have read these anyway, but when I'm having a hard time getting through this list because of all the shiny new hardcovers that catch my eye, I can read one of them, and feel like I am successful.
A few of these are books my readers at school love and I want to be able to talk to them and suggest books they might like that are similar.
Occasionally a title is here because I've had the book for ages and need serious motivation to get to it.
Here then, is my #MustReadin2016 list.
Pax by Sara Pennypacker
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
The Princess in Black and the Hungry Bunny Horde by Shannon Hale
