Some of you are probably plotting your New Year’s Resolutions and my hope is that you plan to join me and my badass bookclub in reading more books. This year I read 69 books, a number that was incredibly coincidental, but funny in retrospect. I read some amazing books, many of which I’ve shared with the GofG community. That said, in my adventures, I've also read some extremely skippable books. For the sake of time, sanity, and because the TV adaptation was better, here are the five books you really don't have to bother reading this year. Trust me.
