18 Books I’m Absolutely Reading This Year

Last night I got the idea for this blog post, and today school was cancelled because of the winter weather. I had to take the idea and run, because it’s honestly the first one I’ve had in two or three months.

Once again, it’s been almost a month since I last posted. I could say that I haven’t posted since last year. You better believe I’ll make that joke at every opportunity. This year I’m not going to stress as much about posting, but my goal is at least two posts every month. Whether or not that’ll actually happen, I have no idea, but I’m going to try.

You know those books that you keep meaning to read, but then a month passes and you haven’t read it? Then two months, three, six, a year? And this year you decide that you’re definitely going to read them, no matter what, even if it’s the last thing you do? That’s what this post is all about. Hopefully I’m not the only one that experiences this.

I’ve compiled a list of eighteen books to prioritize this year, and while doing so realized just how many books I could’ve added. It’s a bit shameful, to be honest…

  • Wild Beauty by Anna-Marie McLemore
  • An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir (#1)
  • And I Darken by Kiersten White (#1)
  • The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers (#1)
  • The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
  • We Are The Ants by Shaun David Hutchinson
  • Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire (#1)
  • Not Your Sidekick by C.B. Lee (#1)
  • They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera
  • Heartless by Marissa Meyer
  • Shiny Broken Pieces by Sona Charaipotra & Dhonielle Clayton (#2)
  • The Elite by Kiera Cass (#2)
  • The Midnight Star by Marie Lu (#3)
  • The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty (#1)
  • Dear Martin by Nic Stone
  • The Secret History by Donna Tartt
  • The Archived by Victoria Schwab (#1)
  • Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead (#1) (reread)

Basically all of these books are really popular in the book community right now, and I think I’ll enjoy them. I own five and my library has digital copies of four more, so that’s only nine books I need to obtain in eleven months. I should be able to do that. And if school ever stops dominating my life, I’ll even be able to read them! How exciting!

Are there any books on here you love that I need to read as soon as possible? What books are you absolutely going to read this year? I’d love to know! 🙂

I’m off to continue reading The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness and hide beneath some blankets. I hope you all have a fabulous day/night! ❤

Until next time…

  1. Ember in the Ashes was a wonderful book! I love it so much and it definitely lived up to the hype! I still need to read Midnight Star everyone says it really good. I also need to read the rest of A Darker Shade of Magic series. Great post and I hope you get to read all of these😊

    1. I actually read AEITA a couple of years ago and didn’t like it very much, but I want to try it again now that it’s so popular. I think I’ll enjoy it! I wasn’t a huge fan of The Rose Society but people have said the finale is really good so I’ll give it a shot. Shades of Magic is one of my favorites, so I hope you enjoy! And thank you! 😊❤️
