Book Lust: Part One

I may not make traditional resolutions, but I do make a list every new year of the books I want to read. I started about a week ago, and my “To Read” list on Goodreads has gotten longer…and longer…and longer. And some of the books I want to read aren’t even listed–Judy Blume is publishing her first adult novel in years this summer, and one of my favorite international writer, Kate Morton, is due to publish a book this year as well.

While I may not manage to read the 70 or so books that are currently on the list, I certainly won’t have any lack of suggestions when I’m looking for a new books. Here is just a handful of the books I’m looking forward to this year:

2. a romance
3. a book that became a movie
4. a book published this year
5. a book with a number in the title
