The 10 Books I Want To Read By the End of 2016!
This is the 10 books I plan on reading by the end of this year, 2016. I’d be so excited to get these all read because they all seem very promising and sound crazy good. Here it goes!
- Stolen Songbird by Danielle L. Jensen. Fantasy with trolls, need I say more? Anyway, this is an epic fantasy that I’ve put on a TBR before but didn’t get to and wasn’t in the mood just then. October was a really bad reading month to put this on. This book is about a girl named Cecil who gets kidnapped by these trolls who want to break a curse that was put upon them 5 years ago. She wants to escape at first, but then realizes their, the trolls, plight.
- Jackaby by William Ritter. Direct quote from the description on Goodreads: “Doctor Who meets Sherlock in William Ritter’s debut novel, which features a detective of the paranormal as seen through the eyes of his adventurous and intelligent assistant in a tale brimming with cheeky humor and a dose of the macabre.” Now we see why I want to read this. I’m into mysteries and some cheeky humor with paranormal mixed in.
- Every Exquisite Thing by Matthew Quick. I’m kind of going into this book blind. I snuck a peek at the reviews on Goodreads and I’ll apparently need some tissues. *buys 2 new boxes of tissues on amazon*
- Giving The Baby Back by Daffodil Campbell. I’ll probably need tissues for this book too. This is my non-fiction pick, plus it’s by a good friend of mine too. This book is about fostering children and everything that goes with it.
- A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Do I really need to explain this story? A novella by Mr. Dickens that became a huge hit back in 1843. It explained the customs from the time then and some of what we do today. I’m totally hitting this guy in December.
- My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories edited by Stephanie Perkins. This is 12 holiday stories for all times of winter coziness. I’m probably going to start reading this when it starts getting colder here in Southern California. I’ve had this book for almost four years and haven’t read it yet.
- Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon. I’ve literally had this book for over a year and haven’t read it. The premise of the story is that the girl, Maddy, is allergic to everything and has to stay in her house 24/7. That’s until Olly moves in next door. A cute fluffy read is a must to break up all the other books I’ll be reading.
- Wandering Star and Zodiac by Romina Russell. I’ve read Zodiac before, but it was over a year ago, so I’ll be re-reading it then going straight into Wandering Star. I can’t give you too much detail on what Wandering Star is about since it is a sequel, but Zodiac was AMAZING when I read it. Zodiac is about Rho, who is from the House of Cancer, she has to help figure out what is happening to the other planets in the galaxy and why the 13th sign, Ophiuchus, is becoming active. I finished it within 2 or 3 days if that tells you how addictive the story was.
- What Light by Jay Asher. Another cute fluffy read, about a Christmas Tree farm and love, heartache and other things. I got this in an advanced readers copy at Yallwest, and haven’t even touched it yet. I’m excited to read it in probably December when the time is more appropriate for it. I want to go into this slightly blind because I’ve heard mixed reviews for it already and it just came out.
- The Casquette Girls by Alys Arden. I started this book back in October after hearing Casey Ann Books talk about it on her Youtube Channel. I hope to finish it soon because it was amazing so far. There’s murder, paranormal things and witches going on in this book.
These are the books I plan on reading the rest of this year. Let me know what you plan on reading until 2017?!
