One of my 2019 goals is to read books I REALLY want to read.
I mean one of my own unwritten goals is to like find out how this new WordPress editor works…and we know that’s not gonna happen but, whatever.
I know this seems like a really EASY goal. Like everyone reads books they want to?? Why else you would you read, are you a potato? And yes, I am a potato amongst many other things (amazing, a queen, the best in the world, the list goes on) BUT I feel like ever since joining this strange book blogging world – I started reading books…for the sake of it, for the hype and not because I (me!!! A penguin!!) wanted to read the book.
I want to get to all those books I procrastinated for a century while I hibernated in my hobbit hole and read all the popular books that I wasn’t even actually EXCITED about.
Also Mel @ Mel to the Any gave me some inspiration with her awesome post where she listed all the books she wanted to read for 2018, and at the end of the year, saw how successful she was. WHICH I THOUGHT WAS SO COOL. SO I Stole the idea from her
because I am unoriginal and have no brain. and she was kind of enough to just…let me to be a sneaky magpie. (I’m in a strange mood today, leave me alone)
The Mortal Instruments – I have been meaning to read this series…FOREVER. Okay? F O R E V E R. I honestly think I will REALLY REALLY love these books and get obsessed and I been searching for a series to get obsessed with for a while to be honest. I can’t wait to read these this year and get invested in the shadowhunter world? EEK.
The Foxhole Court – Everyone SCREAMS about how GOOD this series is. I can honestly name so many people who say this series is beyond amazing and that they are obsessed with it, namely, may @ forever and everly who gave me the final push I needed to REALLY consider reading these since she’s ranted so much about loving these.
Vicious by V.E Schwab – Honestly, I need to catch up on all the Schwab books. Especially her older releases like The Archived and the rest of them. But I DO have Vicious sitting on my shelf and I really want to read it because I haven’t read a Schwab book in FOREVER. And that needs to change since I always hype up her books?
The Book of Dust– I am APPALLED at myself that I have not read this yet, okay? I know I need to read it but I have been putting it off forever even though I wanted to read it so much before it had released?
The Diviners by Libba Bray – I ALSO HAVE THIS ONE ON MY BOOKSHELF. This is bad, very bad. Because I’ve heard this is SO GOOD and amazing and creepy and it sounds like My Cup of Tea(tm) so I’m so ready to read this.
edit: adding The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo and Aristotle and Dante discover the secrets of the universe.
