Look it’s a late 2016 Book Goals List! This has been sitting in my draft for such a long time I almost forgot about it and honestly I just wanted to hit the Trash button! I’m still posting this and hopefully give me my much-needed inspiration.
* * * * *
I knew I had a couple of unread books but I didn’t think that I had this much lying around. I’m not impressed with myself and this doesn’t go well with my current goal of becoming a minimalist.
The goal is to read all of the books listed below and write a review. If I like the book, it’s staying with me. If not, I’m selling it. I will write the reasons why I bought these books and hopefully motivate me to start reading it.
Going Postal – Terry Pratchett
Mike bought this for me…two years ago. I’m not much of a fan of Terry Pratchett and I’ve only read one book of his. I’m not too keen on reading this.
The Bourne Supremacy – Robert Ludlum
I bought the whole Bourne series set in a used bookstore before. The first one definitely did not disappoint me but I never got the chance to read this one. To be honest, I just can’t imagine the fight scenes when I’m reading it. Fun fact, the movie is so much different from the book. In my opinion, the book was better. I just wished I get to imagine the fight scenes clearly.
Trigger Warming/Unnatural Creatures – Neil Gaiman
I’m a big Neil Gaiman fan. I bought this because of my ultimate goal of buying all books by Neil.
A Wild Sheep Chase/Dance Dance Dance – Haruki Murakami
This was part of my 2015 Haruki Murakami Book Haul. LOL. Please let me like these.
One Hundred Years of Solitude – Gabriel Garcia Marquez
I think I bought this book when I was still in college. That’s roughly five years ago. I can’t remember why I bought this but I need to read this!
Yes Please – Amy Poehler
I read a review about this book and it got me curious so I bought it. I am currently reading this and it has a lot of quote-worthy lines! >> Review here! <<
Kafka On the Shore – Haruki Murakami
DONE! I think I need to read it a second time to appreciate it more. >> Review here! <<
This is What Happy Looks Like – Jennifer E. Smith
DONE! And sold all of my Jennifer E. Smith books. It was too young adult for me. Sorry. >> Review here! <<

I found a few more books lying around. -_-
Pygmy – Chuck Palahniuk
I honestly don’t think I’ll be reading this. I’ve had it for the longest time but I still haven’t been able to flip a page 🙁
The Long Earth – Terry Pratchett & Stephen Baxter
I’m reading this now but I just can’t seem to make any progress!
