Top 5 Wednesday | Books I Want to Read Before the End of the Year

‘Top 5 Wednesday’ is a weekly meme currently hosted on Goodreads, and while I haven’t participated in ages, I thought this would be a good opportunity to reflect on my TBR for the rest of 2018.

  1. Into The Water by Paula Hawkins
     The Girl on the Train was undoubtedly a tough act to follow. I’m aware that the reception to Hawkins’ next novel wasn’t unanimously positive, but I am still intrigued enough to want to read it.
  2. Birds Art Life Death by Kyo Maclear

  3. Betraying Big Brother: The Feminist Awakening in China by Leta Hong Fincher This one isn’t released until September, but I’m excited to get my hands on it. I love anything China-related and anything Feminism-related, so I look forward to this one.

  4. The Only Story by Julian Barnes
    35570812I read The Sense of an Ending many years ago, and saw the film version last year, which reminded me how much I enjoy Julian Barnes’ storytelling.
  5. Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng 
    Image result for little fires everywhere After enjoying Everything I Never Told you, a friend lent me a copy of Ng’s second novel, which has been on my radar for a while (aren’t they making it into a film or TV series)? I love the cover and title, and hopefully will love the content too, if her last book was anything to go by.
