‘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.
- 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.
- Birds Art Life Death by Kyo Maclear
A good friend who has excellent taste in books recommended this one to me, saying it was the kind of book that makes her want to write. I got it earlier in the year and want to get around to reading it before the year is out.
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.
- The Only Story by Julian Barnes
I 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.
- Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng
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.
