Top Ten Books I Want to Read Before the Year Ends

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 bookβ€”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 πŸ˜‰

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 goodβ€”but I’m only 10 pages in.

9. Blood for Blood (Wolf by Wolf #2) by Ryan Graudin

cover-blood-for-blood

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?

  1. Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom were both beyond amazing. Seriously, I can’t recommend them enough. Blood for Blood is also on my TBR – I was really impressed with Wolf by Wolf, and I’ve heard it only gets better. I added Illuminae to my TBR a little while ago when the hype was through the roof about it, but I keep putting other books before it on my list; if Gemina is making you feel like that from sheer anticipation, ‘ll have to make Illuminae more of a priority! Great list for this week πŸ™‚

  2. YES! Six of Crows is AMAZING! I really hope you love it just as much as I do! ❀ I also really enjoyed Falling Kingdoms, but I thought that its sequel was much better. I'm hoping to finish A Torch Against the Night and the Ron Chernow Alexander Hamilton biography. I also can't wait to read The Raven King.
