I have too many books on my tbr and the end of the year is so close!
November 14th: Books You Want to Read Before 2019
–Our Goodreads goals are quickly closing in. What are you prioritizing for the end of the year?
I’ve already met my Goodreads goal of 50 books. But I still have so many more books that I would love to read by the end of the year!
5. A Court of Wings and Ruin
Sarah J. Maas
SYNOPSIS: Feyre has returned to the Spring Court, determined to gather information on Tamlin’s manoeuvrings and the invading king threatening to bring Prythian to its knees. But to do so she must play a deadly game of deceit – and one slip may spell doom not only for Feyre, but for her world as well.
As war bears down upon them all, Feyre must decide who to trust amongst the dazzling and lethal High Lords – and hunt for allies in unexpected places.
I finished ACOMAF months ago and I’ve still not got round to reading this. This is mainly due to it being nearly 700 pages long!
4. The Heart of Betrayal + The Beauty of Darkness
Mary E. Pearson
SYNOPSIS: A princess must find her place in a reborn world.
She flees on her wedding day.
She steals ancient documents from the Chancellor’s secret collection.
She is pursued by bounty hunters sent by her own father.
She is Princess Lia, seventeen, First Daughter of the House of Morrighan.
I really enjoyed The Kiss of Deception and I really want to see where this trilogy goes. I’m also invested in Pauline and I want to make sure she’s happy at the end! ♥
3. Six of Crows + Crooked Kingdom
SYNOPSIS: Ketterdam: a bustling hub of international trade where anything can be had for the right price–and no one knows that better than criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker. Kaz is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams. But he can’t pull it off alone…
A convict with a thirst for revenge.
A sharpshooter who can’t walk away from a wager.
A runaway with a privileged past.
A spy known as the Wraith.
A Heartrender using her magic to survive the slums.
A thief with a gift for unlikely escapes.
Six dangerous outcasts. One impossible heist. Kaz’s crew is the only thing that might stand between the world and destruction—if they don’t kill each other first.
I have heard so many good things about Kaz Brekker that I’m so intrigued about this duology. I would love to read these soon! I’m so down for a heist book and lovable crooks ♥
2. The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy
SYNOPSIS: A year after an accidentally whirlwind grand tour with her brother Monty, Felicity Montague has returned to England with two goals in mind—avoid the marriage proposal of a lovestruck suitor from Edinburgh and enroll in medical school. However, her intellect and passion will never be enough in the eyes of the administrators, who see men as the sole guardians of science.
I really enjoyed the Mackenzie Lee’s debut novel, and I’m even more excited to read about Felicity’s adventure. I’m also hoping to see more of Monty being a lovable dummy.
1. A Map of Days
SYNOPSIS: Now, the stakes are higher than ever as Jacob and his friends are thrust into the untamed landscape of American peculiardom—a world with few ymbrynes, or rules—that none of them understand. New wonders, and dangers, await in this brilliant next chapter for Miss Peregrine’s peculiar children.
This is one of the books that I’m currently reading. I’m 77 pages in, so I have a long way too go, but it is definitely my priority. I love Ransom Rigg’s writing and I’m so excited to keep reading!
What books are you looking forward to getting in before the end of the year?
Thanks for reading! I hope you’re having a lovely day~
