Teaser Tuesday: Books for 2017

In addition to adding a few works suggested by readers, I’ve added more to my TBR, thanks to Christmas gifts of both books and gift cards. In no particular order, here’s what on my shelf (or in the mail . . . or pre-ordered . . . or waiting to be returned to the library) for 2017:

  1. I’ve got a long list of books to read but I’m afraid I’m too easily distracted by internet stuff! I don’t know many on your list, but did you see the Night Manager on TV recently? A great drama series, very popular in UK.

  2. Jay! The Man In the High Castle is on my list, too. Have you seen the TV series on Amazon? I haven’t and I am thinking I must read the book first… Also, I can second the recommendation of The Night Manager – it was excellent. Best of luck with your reading challenge. I’ve set a lower bar this year, 20 instead of 25. I have much writing and researching to do. Best of luck! We must compare notes on ‘High Castle’
