What I’d like to read more of in 2018

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAs a reader, you always wonder what books would you like to read more of to diversify your reading. I have a few choices for this. I want to try and read more classics from the victorian times. I have’t read too many as it hasn’t been a genre that I really drift towards, so that is something I’d like to try and explore. Another, is to try and expand reading more African American literature. I’ve only really read Chimamanda’s works in that space and there are so many other authors works to try. In particular, I want to read works by Toni Morrison. I have started reading her works in chronological order with The Bluest Eye. A few pages in and I’m already enamoured by the depth of emotion she conveys and sheer beauty of her prose. I would also love to try and read more modern classics like the works of Virginia Woolf and revisit some of the gems from the 20th century. Lastly, I’d like to sprinkle my reading with more non fiction, ease myself gently into a genre that hasn’t quite dominated my reading.

What genres and topics would you like to pick up this year?
