Like most book readers, I buy more books than I can read. So, I’ve made a deal with myself, if I read most of what I have so far, then I get to reward myself with at least one new book. Seems like a good plan, doesn’t it? Well, the only reason it’s working so well is because I can’t drive myself to the bookstore, and I don’t live as close anymore!
Since I don’t normally read more than one book a month, it’s easy to write up a year’s TBR. That’s only twelve books. For this list I won’t count the ones I’ve already read (The Selection and The Elite both by Keira Cass).
Without further ado and in no particular order, my list:
The One by Keira Cass. The third and final book in The Selection series. I started it in February, but I couldn’t get into it, since I had read the first two so quickly, I needed a break.
The Duke and I by Julia Quinn. I’m reading this one currently for my book club’s March read! I’m loving it so far.
The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren. I’ve only read one other Christina Lauren book, and I absolutely loved it! I can’t wait to read more.
The Savior’s Sister by Jenna Moreci. I flew through the first book, The Savior’s Champion and found myself needing the next book immediately. Because the book is so dark, I can only read it when I’m in a good mood, or it sucks the life out of me. But it is so good!
The Best Lies by Sarah Lyu. I picked this book up at the bookstore because I thought the cover was pretty! When I read what it was about I knew I needed to read it, but I just haven’t squeezed it in yet.
The Cemetery Boys by Adien Thomas. The only non-female on my list! It’s not on purpose that I only read by female authors, but I am excited to read this one because it’s so out of my ordinary reads and it’s super diverse which I love.
Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell. I have put this book off for so long, not necessarily on purpose either. I’m not a fantasy reader, and though I am trying to branch out of my cozy contemporary reads, I’m still weary about it, even though I loved Carry On.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I’ve read the whole series way back when it first came out, and I rewatch the movies when I get a chance because I love them so much. But I haven’t reread the book. I don’t think I’ll reread the series as a whole, but I would like to read the first one again.
I know I said twelve and I’ve listed ten (including the two that I’ve already finished), but that’s as far as I’ve gotten in my list. I like to have wiggle room.
What are some books that you’re excite to read this year?
