Must Read - 2016

#MUSTREADIN2016
Carrie Gelson of There's A Book for That and Maria Selke of Maria's Melange started us down the path of giving love to all the books that came before, the ones we have on shelves, but still haven't been read! There is a small group of us who began sharing lists titled #MustReadIn2014. You can view that list if you click on the title on the bar above. I've read 13 of the 26 I listed. Someday I may read them all, but maybe not. For whatever reason, I haven't taken the time for them. In my list for 2015, hashtag #mustreadin2015 (see above also) I read 10 of 21!  I have moved a few of the books from last year's list to this one!

Thanks for the nudge, Carrie!

Books read will be changed to blue!

  1. Hurray for all of the Rundell tiles! I sure hope you enjoy them as much as me. I love Loftin's writing. Hoping from more novels from her in the near future. Wish Girl was amazing. Did you read it?

    1. No, another one to remember to read! I'll put it on my Goodreads list! Can't wait to find time for the Rooftoppers and Wolf Wilder.

  2. ooo so many I titles I want to read on your list, especially Carry On and The Marvels (which I didn't put on my list because I think I thought I'd actually get to them in 2015 and then my 2016 list was so full I couldn't add any more!) I love Seraphina and would actually like to reread it again soon. The Meaning of Maggie was delightful as well. Ah! So many great books!

    1. Thanks for sharing your thoughts about the list, and yes, so, so many books to enjoy for us all. I have started a second list of books I want to remember! Happy Reading!

  3. We share a few books on our lists Linda. It will be interesting to see how our views of them compare. I do hope you love The Meaning of Maggie as much as I did. If I picked favorites, it was near to the top of my list last year.

    1. I heard so much good about it, just kept putting it off. Now I will be sure to read it. Thanks, Cheriee!

  4. It looks like a manageable list, Linda. I look forward to reading your updates. I loved Quiet. Susan Cain did a TED Talk about it too.

  5. I love that you're still reading professional titles!
    I said this to Kellee, Ricki and Carrie - start with All American Boys! So important!
    Looks like you have a great year of reading ahead of you, Linda!

    1. Thanks, Michele, I am still interested in reading some professional books, although not necessarily those talking about lessons, more about the philosophy and research of learning. Will find All American Boys soon!

  6. I loved both All the Answers and Stella by Starlight. Maybe you'd like to move them to the top of your TBR pile...(heehee) Enjoy!

    1. Many are 'at the top' & I will start some as soon as I finish the reading for the Cybils, Jill. Thanks for your opinion. I'm sure they are awesome. I love both authors.

  7. So many of us have All American Boys on our list! We should all read it together!:)
    You have so many others that I want to read also! Reading others’ lists makes me want to make mine longer.

    1. I also kept a 2nd list, Kellee because I too saw others I want to be sure to read. Lots of great books available in these past years. If you'd like to start a book group for All American Boys, I think it would be fun!
