12 Books I Want To Read in 2017
I have compiled a nice stack of books that I decided that I have to read in 2017. These are in no order of importance, but just how I wrote them down and stacked them up on my desk.
- All The Light We Cannot See– Anthony Doerr. This is a historical fiction book based in Paris during WW2. It has a split perspective from two children during this war where Paris gets taken over by the Nazi’s. It’s been on my shelf for far too long, so now I have the chance to read it this year.
- A Discovery of Witches– Deborah Harkness. This is a historical paranormal romance book with vampires and all that jazz, I too have had this on my shelf for far too long.
- Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell– Susanna Clarke. Yet another historical magical realism book. This one takes place in England during the 1800s.
- The Bone Season– Samantha Shannon. The main character in this book series is a girl, Paige, that has the power to search into peoples minds. Sounds pretty awesome to me, I’d love to be able to do that with where I work.
- An Ember In The Ashes– Sabaa Tahir. This book has a soldier, Elias, and a slave, Laia, in it. I’m hoping to go into this story slightly blind. I don’t really want to know what happens, but I do want to eventually get the second book, A Torch Against The Night, soon.
- More Happy Than Not– Adam Silvera. This is a coming-of-age story about this boy, Aaron, whose father had commited suicide and meets a boy, Thomas, and he makes him happy beyond belief. However, Aaron’s friends don’t like this.
- The Cuckoo’s Calling– Robert Galbraith. This is a crime mystery thriller, and I’m excited about this. I’ve been waiting to find the best time to read this, and its gonna be this year!
- The Shadow of the Wind– Carlos Ruiz Zafon. This takes place in Barcelona in the 1940’s after the Spanish war. A boy has been reading these books that happen to be disappearing at a crazy rate, and it all leads to something bigger in the end. I’ve heard so much about this book that I have to get to it soon.
- The Host– Stephanie Meyer. Aliens. That’s all I have to say.
- Red Queen– Victoria Aveyard. This sounds like a really great political sci-fi/fantasy book about two different bloods, the reds who are commoners and the silvers who are the elites with super powers. I’ve had this book since it came out, and have finally met Ms. Aveyard this last spring, got my book signed.
- Golden Boy– Abigail Tarttelin. The synopsis is really vague, so I understand it’s a coming-of-age story of an intersex teen that has secrets he hides from everyone.
- #NERD– Cambria Herbert. This is a fluffy contemporary that I’ve had for almost a year and keep wanting to pick it up, but don’t.
This is my list of books I plan on reading during 2017!
