On Wednesdays I post my “Top 5” which comes from a Goodreads group that creates topics for bloggers to write about. However, as I mentioned in last week’s post, the moderator is taking a hiatus for the Summer (June, July, & August) so the topics are kind of up to bloggers at the moment.
Last week I kept to the topic for the first week of June of 2018, but this week I’m going off script a little! Today, I’m doing “Books I Want to Read Before the End of the Year”. I figured that since we’ve reached the half way point of 2019, it’s a perfect time to assess what books I’ve still got on my “have to read this year” TBR!
Harry Potter (Series) – J.K. Rowling
I made such a big deal about wanting to read this series when 2019 came around and yet I’ve still not even purchased the books! I still really want to at least get started with this series sometime before this year ends. Maybe I can finally start once July comes around… we’ll see.
A Very Large Expanse of Sea – Hahereh Mafi
I saw a huge incline in talk surrounding this book around the end of last year, and I’d really like to catch up to everyone else and read it. Novels like this are so important (Muslim rep, LGBTQ+ rep, POC rep) and I’m really hoping to get to read it soon (even though I’m literally the only factor that influences whether or not I do indeed read this before the year is up).
Sawkill Girls – Claire Legrand
At first, I wanted badly to read this book because the synopsis gives me majorly creepy vibes and I’m always down for a majorly creepy book. Now, however, I’m anxious to read it ASAP because the reviews on it from my friends on GR have been.. mixed, to say the least. Half of the people marked it as DNF and the other half rated it 4-5 stars. I mostly just want to see what the deal is.
Privilege (Series) – Kate Brian
I have absolutely no idea why I’ve convinced myself that I just have to read this series. It’s a spin-off of the Private series by the same author, and even though I’ve read the entire Private collection like 4 times, I’ve never felt inclined to reach for the Privilege series?? Until now, that is. I also feel this overwhelming need to read the 6 books ASAP, since I just finished the Private series and everything is still fresh in my brain (as if it hasn’t already been branded into my memory from reading it so many times).
We Told Six Lies – Victoria Scott
Hi, hello, my name is Brittany and I’m a poor excuse for a thriller genre addict. I am always telling everyone that mysteries/thrillers are my favorite and yet, I’ve barely read any this year!? So, I’d like to fix that, and while I’d really be happy at this point with any good YA thriller, this is one that’s been on my TBR since last year. Oh and I’m obsessed with the cover (literally only because of the colors).
