I saw a post like this recently on Bookmark Lit and thought I need to do this too. I always have SO many books I say I need to read – old and new – and they get put aside. But these 12 books are ones I am really going to try and fit in by the end of the year.
The Sequels/ Next in Series
Us // Him was so damn amazing and I didn’t expect to love it like I did. I NEED to read Us and soon.
Split Second // Pivot Point was my first 5 star read of the year and for some reason I haven’t picked up Split Second.
Winter // I had to have this book as soon as it came out. I got the audio and it has sat there becuase 24 hours people.
The Backlist from Newly Discovered Authors
The One That Got Away // Results May Vary was amazing and made me so happy I got this one on sale.
Come Away With Me// The Choices We Make totally made me sob and I fully expect this to do the same.
The Status of All Things // I actually wanted this book when it came out but never got it. Then I read The YEar We Turned Forty and loved it so I knew I need to get this one too.
The Books That Came Out His Year and I Had to Have
Tell Me Three Things // I won this in the beginning of the year and have hear such great things and it still sits on my shelf.
Scarlett Epstein Hates it Here // This cover. I love it and it made me buy it. It did. I think I will love this one.
Girl Against the Universe // After hearing awesome things I bought this one with my Amazon money. I am excited for it.
The Ones that Intimidate Me
Illuminae // This is a size and the whole craziness of the format. I have had it on my shelf since Christmas and I am just a big baby about picking it up.
Outlander// The size on this one scares me away. But I want to read it then watch the show.
Harry Potter// This is intimidating in that I feel like I am the last to read it. What if I don’t like it? I feel like that will crush me for some reason. I want to love HP llike the rest of the world.
So I own all of these books (except for Harry Potter which I will get from the library) I am trying my hardest not to request too many ARCs for the rest of the year unless I really want them. I would love to get through all of these and make a dent in books I have been meaning to read.
