The List

All Books,

but certainly not all of them.

So I thought I should probably make a list of the books that I want to read/review in the next…okay, in the next whenever. The list is always going to be updated as I read and find new books to fall in love with, so check back in if you’re curious, and leave suggestions if you’ve read something I haven’t hunted down yet (pretty please atop a creamcake!). “To Review” is alphabetized…”To Read” is not because I got distracted thinking about all the glorious books whispering new stories in my ears…And if the “To Read” list seems short, well…it’s not complete. It’s just the ones that I really need to get my hands on. Like before I start showing up at bookshops with a wild-eyed look at three in the morning and an ink pen stuffed somewhere in my unbrushed hair (Not at a library. I wouldn’t do that to my librarians. Would I?).

Anyway, here’s the list.

  • Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
