This week is a freebie so I ended up doing a list of books that I want to read this year. These aren't books that come out this year, none of them are, but here are the other reasons a book may be on this list:
I've been meaning to read it for WAY TOO LONG.
They've been on multiple tbr piles and I STILL HAVEN'T READ THEM.
I own more than one book by the author and still haven't read one of them...
Top Ten Books I Want to Read in 2015.
- The Lord of the Rings trilogy by JRR Tolkien - I NEED to read this trilogy. I'm a huge fan of the movies and The Hobbit movies. I need to read these and then re-watch the movies.
- The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak - I'm terrible, I know. I don't know how I haven't read this one yet, but I think I'm scared because this book is so hyped. But I'm taking the plunge this year and reading it.
- Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy by Laini Taylor - Now that the trilogy is complete, I need to marathon this series.
- Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers - This book has been on so many tbr piles and I haven't picked it up yet, but I'm going to this year. I still really want to read this one.
- The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini - I didn't have to read this one in school or anything but I want to read this story and experience it.
- Haruki Murakami - I have two books by him and I haven't read anything by him. The two books I own are After Dark and Norwegian Wood, I'm planning to read one of these this year and finally read Murakami!
- All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr - I've heard so much about this book and I never got around to reading it last year. This year, it's definitely on my radar.
- Eon/Eona by Alison Goodman - As a huge fantasy fan, it's about time I read this duology!
- Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead - This series is so beloved and I can't believe I haven't read it yet. I've heard good things about the series, and I found the whole series at a book sale for about $3..the WHOLE series. I need to read this series this year!
- The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt - This was another book that I was so excited to read last year and never got around to. I still want to check this one out and see why it won the Pulitzer.
