Books to read in 2015

And now, a quick look ahead at the kind of year I’d like to have in reading. My seasonal reading lists are composed based on what books I own and are still un-read, books from my various Reading Projects, and books from the many, many reading lists I maintain. However, there are a few books – and kinds of books – that I want to especially make sure I read this year.

  • Three new releases (published in 2014 or 2015)
  • Team of Rivals by Doris Kearns
  • The ‘Sandman’ series by Neil Gaiman
  • IQ84 by Haruki Murakami
  • The Complete Poems of Anne Sexton
  • A compilation of essays
  • Dune by Frank Herbert
  • The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
  • Start the ‘Rabbit’ series by John Updike
  • The Color Purple by Alice Walker
  • Bring Up the Bodies by Hilary Mantel
  • Herzog by Saul Bellow
  • Re-read The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner
  • Midnight’s Children by Salmon Rushdie
  • Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman
  • Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys
  • David Copperfield by Charles Dickens
