Books I'm planning to read in 2016 that aren't for book club!

When you're in three book clubs, you read a lot of books. However, they aren't always books you want to read, and sometimes you have to make time for others too! One of my New Year's Book Resolutions (more on this tomorrow) is to read these 14 books in addition to the 36 book club books I'll be reading. Hey, that equals out to an even 50, and I didn't even do it on purpose! :)



 1. The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater - I am so excited for this! I can't believe I have to wait until April!


2. Mr. Kiss and Tell by Rob Thomas - The first Veronica Mars book was great, so I have to read the second!



3. Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare - The newest story in the Shadowhunter world!



 4. The rest of the Throne of Glass series - I read the first one and was blown away, but I've been bad at getting to sequels lately!



5. Second Chance Summer and Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson - Recommended to me by the lovely Gnoming Librarian :)



6. I Hunt Killers - Dad was a serial killer and never bothered to hide it from his son, Jazz. Now Jazz is helping the police solve a murder! I'm in! (Update: I just found out I'll be reading this for a book club - so win!)



7. Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy - I've been wanting to read this one for a while, and I own it, so I have no excuse.



 8. Gail Carriger adult series - Her young adult series is phenomenal, so I can only imagine how good the adult books are! 



 9. A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin - Thanks to my darling Mommy, I became hooked to the TV series over my Christmas vacation. Now I want to read (at least) the first book.



 10. The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde - This description. That is all.

Welcome to a surreal version of Great Britain, circa 1985, where time travel is routine, cloning is a reality (dodos are the resurrected pet of choice), and literature is taken very, very seriously. England is a virtual police state where an aunt can get lost (literally) in a Wordsworth poem, militant Baconians heckle performances of Hamlet, and forging Byronic verse is a punishable offense. All this is business as usual for Thursday Next, renowned Special Operative in literary detection, until someone begins kidnapping characters from works of literature. When Jane Eyre is plucked from the pages of Brontë's novel, Thursday must track down the villain and enter the novel herself to avert a heinous act of literary homicide.(Summary from Goodreads.com)
