Bucket List 2016

This week, I’m making my 2016 Bucket List official! Since my last post, I’ve also added a link on the blog so that my progress can be tracked at any time. In compiling the list this year I’ve tried  to include a good mix of genres, as well as stand alone novels and series. I do want to broaden my reading a bit this year, but there are also so many highly recommended authors I heard about last year that my bucket list could have been much, much longer.

As you can see, there are a lot of series that I really want to get through, most of which are trilogies. I might add some more stand alone novels as the year progresses though, depending on how my reading goals change.

Does anyone else have a grand bucket list? Do you find that having one helps guide your reading much? And, if you’re like me and have too many books on your TBR, how do you narrow your options down?
