2017 – Reading List

Having a job with a transit commute led to a lot of eBook, eNews and Wattpad reading in 2016. I didn’t keep very good track of the books that I did read and as a result I started creating a list in the later months of 2016 of books that I would like to read cover-to-cover in the new year.

As someone who lives next door to a library it’s become a great resource to pop-in and pick up a book when I find myself with nothing to read or am looking for something to do. The other benefit of having a Toronto Public Library Card is that I can place a hold on many of the books on my list and they will be delivered to my local branch when it is my turn. The Toronto Public Library is a large network, but I am always impressed with the number of copies that they purchase of certain titles and now I will anxiously wait for my name to come up in the cue. The best part is if you’re interested in doing the same I’ve already got my name on the list!

What books are on your Reading List for 2017? Is there any titles that come to mind based on the ones that I have included below? If so please let me know the books in the comment section as I’m always look for more ideas of books that will be a great addition to my list and personal knowledge.

Here is the start of my 2017 Reading List, books are listed in no particular order which works out nicely since I won’t know which will come available at the library first.

    I really liked “13 Ways of Looking at the Fat Girl”, it was a quick read.

      Hi Amelia, that’s great to know. It looks like an interesting read and something I can relate to in a way. Are there any other books that you’ve read recently to recommend for 2017?

    I really need to put more reading (of books) into my life. I’ve been slowly crawling through Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind and I want to tackle The Brain That Heals Itself (and/or its precursor The Brain That Changes Itself). My wife loved #GirlBoss and has a copy of Chris Hadfield’s An Astronauts View of Life on Earth that I’m curious about… all that stuff, and I frankly prefer fun fiction.

    How did you find the experience of reading on WattPad? I’ve always been curious, but never tried it.

      Axel, thank you for taking the time to provide some suggestions for my list, I’ve heard good things about Chris Hadfield’s book as well. I quite like the experience of WattPad, it is easy to have on your phone and there are up and coming authors from every genre to choose from!
