First of all, I'd like to welcome you to the year 2016. I know I'm two weeks late but better late than never amIright?!
Second, I've just finished reading Juliet, Naked by Nick Hornby for the second time in a row. If you'd like to check it out, click here.
So without further ado, here are the books I want to read in 2016:
1. The Shining by Stephen King - I've never read a Stephen King book OR watched an adaptation of one and I think The Shining is a good start. Stephen King is one of the greatest authors of the past four decades and it would be a shame to miss out on such good terror stories.. even though I get scared of nearly anything and everything.
2. The Harry Potter serie by J.K. Rowling - I've always been in love with these books and they are a huge part of my life, so I've decided to make it my goal this year to read them all in english. I've originally read them in polish and I know I'm missing out on so many good jokes.
3. Brokeback Mountain by Annie Proulx - I don't know much about Annie's books or what not. This book was suggested to me by one of my mates and I've heard fantastic opinions about it so I'll dive into it with great joy
4. Breakfast at Tiffany's by Truman Capote - The reason for this one is that I just want to watch the movie but I wouldn't be me if I didn't read the book first.
Out of what I've seen it's a true masterpiece with wit as sharp as.. very sharp.
5. Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Caroll - This is truly one of my favourite fairy tales. I'm a bit of an anti logical critic myself and I loved Disney's adaptation of the story, as well as the live action movie by the genius himself, Tim Burton.
Being bonkers really helps enjoy the essence of Wonderland, where everything and nothing makes sense all at once.
6. The perks of being a wallflower by Stephen Chbosky -
I admit it, I've already seen the movie featuring one of my all-time-favourite actresses Emma Watson and the talented Logan Lerman. I've been wanting to read the book ever since I found out that the movie was an adaptation.
Yes, I probably should've known judging by my overall book knowledge, but hey, this one slipped my mind.
7. The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien - I've read bits and pieces in middleschool and I did recite some for a bigger crowd but I was never interested in the whole thing.
It didn't make much sense.. but then again that's probably because I didn't read it in order. It also was a small book with tiny print so it wasn't very interesting to look at.
Since I have a big illustrated version of it (past Christmas present) I will read it with great pleasure.
