2016 releases I wanted to and didn’t read last year
- What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours/ Helen Oyeyemi – I have this one from the library now and plan to read it soon.
- Homegoing / Yaa Gyasi I just need to pick this one up and start. I’ve heard it’s incredibly engaging
- The Underground Railroad / Colson Whitehead I didn’t buy this last year because I wanted to go to a book signing and buy the book there. It didn’t happen so I guess it’s time to just buy a copy and read it.
- Hamilton: The Revolution / Lin-Manuel Miranda I have no reason except I didn’t do it yet.
- Paris For One / JoJo Moyes. I picked up this short story collection from my library right after it was released last October but I didn’t have time to read it and had to return it. I just got it back and read it a few days ago. Win!
- Shylock Is My Name / Howard Jacobson I wanted to read the Merchant of Venice retelling in 2016 and didn’t get around to it – it was just too long to read at the end of the year when I was fishing around for small books to finish my challenge. That being said, I made it one of my first reads in 2016 so that’s a win too.
And that was the focus of this week’s TTT question so I wanted to answer it.
That being said though, there are some new releases in 2017 that I am looking forward to. When I really enjoy a book, I want to read everything the author has published so I am always on the lookout for new books by these people and these are some that are scheduled for 2017 and beyond that maybe I can get my hands on for early release etc., later this year.
Because You Love To Hate Me is a short story collection edited by Ameriie, yes, the singer, and now BookTuber. I follow her channel and she makes great videos. Let’s see how she is in the author world.
The Best of Adam Sharp by Graeme Samson, author of The Rosie Project has a new book coming later this year, although I think it’s already been released in his native Australia. Oh, for the first time ever I sort of wish I lived Down Under.
Meet Cute is a YA short story anthology that will feature stories from one of my new favs, Nicola Yoon, author of Everything, Everything.
Anything Is Possible / Elizabeth Strout. I read her connected Olive Kitteridge stories and would love to see how she does with a novel. This one is expected later this year.
Do you follow authors? What 2017 release are you most anticipating?
Bonus points if you say you’re most looking forward to reading my next book
