Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
Happy Tuesday! This week’s topic is supposed to be Books I’ve Added to my TBR Recently, but my TBR is a disaster right now, so I’m taking my own spin on the topic. Here are some books that I hope to read before the year ends.
1. Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
I read the Grisha trilogy over summer and didn’t love it, but I’ve heard amazing things about the sequel series. My friend just read it and DIED over it, so I know I have to read it soon.
2. Firsts by Laurie Elizabeth Flynn
I have literally been meaning to read this book all year…and yet I never got around to it. I can’t let 2016 end without reading this book finally,
3. Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi
I am fascinated by this book—I mean, when I think Tahereh Mafi, I definitely do not think MG. I know that she will do an incredible job with the genre and the story.
4. Calamity (The Reckoners #3) by Brandon Sanderson
Another book that I have been meaning to read since it came out! I love everything Brandon Sanderson writes, and I am ready to finish the Reckoners’ story.
5. Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes
I’ve had this book forever. My sister read it and didn’t love it, but there is a lot of love for the series, so I want to give it a shot.
6. Gemina (Illuminae Files #2) by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman
BECAUSE OF COURSE. Just looking at this book makes my heart race, though, so I’ll probably wait to read it until a break from school and its stress, lol.
7. The Sweetheart by Angelina Mirabella
My sister has been bugging me to read this book for months. I should read it before 2016 ends, just so that she won’t nag me in two different years 😉
8. His Majesty’s Dragon (Temeraire #1) by Naomi Novik
I LOVED Uprooted (if you haven’t read it, GO READ IT) so I am excited to see what else Naomi Novik has created. The series is nine books long and the last one finally came out, so I think it’s time to binge-read it. I just started this book, and so far it’s good—but I’m only 10 pages in.
9. Blood for Blood (Wolf by Wolf #2) by Ryan Graudin
Another OF COURSE on my TBR. Wolf by Wolf was incredible, so I HAVE to know how the story ends.
10. milk and honey by Rupi Kaur
I’ve seen this book everywhere and I’m excited for it. I don’t read a lot of poetry, but I took some poetry classes earlier this year and it reminded me just how much I like poems when I read them.
What books do you want to read before the year is over? What books are on your TBR and what books should I add to my own?
