The Joyful Booklist

Here is a list of the books I intend to read this year. It starts off with books carried over from last year’s list. The list is not yet complete – let me know if you have any recommendations! I am open to anything.

My aim is to read one book per week, but I’m allowing myself some leeway by having a goal of 48 books over the year. The list is in no particular order, and is a combination of books chosen specifically and books picked randomly from my insanely huge Kindle library. Books that I have completed are written in italics, and the book(s) I am currently reading is in bold.
