At the end of each year, people love talking about the best books that they’ve read. But what about the titles left gathering dust on their TBR (to be read) shelves? Here, two of our writers talk about the books that they wanted to read in 2015, but never picked up.
Kelly’s Reading Regrets:
Twelve months go by so fast, especially when you’re reading great books. I’ve read some incredible things this year, but I’ve also continued to push off titles that I desperately want to read. Hopefully I’ll get to these in 2016.
Elizabeth’s Reading Regrets:
Dear Kelly, of course you can borrow my copy of Never Let Me Go! Despite reading up a storm this year, I also skipped some of the books I really, really meant to read in 2015. Here are the books I am definitely reading in 2016.
This was such a huge, buzzy book this year, and I can’t believe I never got around to picking it up. I’m dying to know what all of the fuss was about. What makes matters worse is that I’ve had the galley for AGES, so there’s really no excuse.
I have never read any Roberto Bolaño, and that needs to change ASAP. I’ve heard really wonderful things about this book, and I hope 2016 will be the year that I finally get around to it.
