Reading List/Challenge 2016: Unfinished Business

For the third year in a row, I've made a list of genres or types of books that I hope to read in the coming year. This is a way to encourage variety in my reading and leave room for non-list reading as well.


This year I modified last year's list to fit this theme: unfinished books to restart and complete.


As always, a book my fulfill more than one item, and order is unimportant.


1. poetry by a "dead giant"

2. feminist work

3. SF/speculative fiction

4. a work in translation

5. a work from the 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die list

6. memoir/autobiography/biography

7. literary canon

8. poetry by a contemporary poet

9. poetry craft/theory

10. mystery or thriller

11. YA

12. prize winner

13. other nonfiction

14. author of color

15. character of color as protagonist

16. fantasy
