In no particular order, here are the books I plan to read. Unfortunately, my actual bookshelf barely has any fictional books (I am more of a library paperbacks/e-books kind of person) so the “bookshelf” aspect is just a phrase. 😛
A lot of them are Kindle freebies/self-published books that sounded interesting, and I have quite a lot of classics to add onto the ongoing list. 🙂
In order to assure I’m choosing the right books, I’m making sure everything I read fits underneath the “I want to read” category before placing them on my bookshelf. The following books are those which are currently “on my shelf.”
I want to read: insightful plots, dark and disturbing, maybe gritty, funny, Holocaust related fiction, coming of age stories, hopeful, books with good vocabulary, psychological underlining, mental illnesses, unique characters, excellent writing, a good and engaging pace, insightful historic fiction, philosophical science fiction, contemporary and dark YA books with little/no romance, women’s fiction dealing with heavy topics, the occasional cute story with quirky characters, psychological thrillers, horror books with psychological elements only, non-fiction books with a narrative prose and easy to read.
