Some of these will end up being Fall and Winter TBR.
And maybe even 2017 TBR and beyond. I'm super picky about what I read, and when. I have to be in the mood. And I often go down a Netflix rabbit hole and ignore the books on my nightstand completely. But I wanted to stack these up and set them apart from my bookshelf as motivation to watch less TV and read more this summer. I set a GoodReads goal for the first time for 2016: 25 books. Which is super un-ambitious in the world of GoodReads. (The average is 48.) And having read seven books so far, I'm "5 books behind schedule." 😁 I'm currently reading The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt, and then moving on to these books. There are 10 novels and 4 memoirs. I'm reading Their Eyes Were Watching God as part of the Crash Course Literature book club, and I might shelve some of these to read more of the books on that list. I'm also going to put down whatever I'm reading July 31st for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
