Books I need to read before 2017 is over

Or a 100? I cannot believe it’s September already! There’re still so many books I want to read this year – but Feel like I am running out of time! That is why I am becoming more picky about what I read. As of right now I have new rules:

  1. Don’t jump on the band wagon or a hype train as much anymore.
  2. Skip books that have very similar plot lines : dystopian with cliche characters and predictable ending? No, thank you. A damsel in distress who becomes a super strong heroine and hooks up with the hottest guy (or multiple) in the book? No, thank you.
  3. Read at least 1 more classic before the year is over.
  4. Focus more on the favorite genre: for me it’s historical fiction, mystery and fantasy books.

Here are few of my high priority books to read before 2017 is over:

The language of thorns by Leigh Bardugo  – yes, it’s being hyped up right now, BUT Leigh Bardugo is one of my favorite writers, so it’s a given. Plus the illustrations are already blowing my mind, and I’ve only seen a few.

Wonder Woman by Leigh Bardugo – favorite author once again.

The emperor’s soul by Brandon Sanderson – I’ve heard great things about this short novel from Brandon Sanderson (from people that I trust to pick great fantasy books).

All the light we cannot see by Anthony Doerr – historical fiction set inWWII

Making Faces by Amy Harmon  – a book by another favorite author of mine.

The one man by Andrew Gross – historical WWII fiction

Dark matter by Blake Crouch – planning to do a read along with my husband

Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury  – Autumn vibes!

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte  – it’s hefty, but I need to tackle it this year!

I have way more, but those are few very important ones. Now I should probably get back to reading, right?

  1. I also want to get to All The Light We Cannot See by years end. I can’t believe I haven’t read it yet. I just need to take it off the shelf and put it on my night stand. That way I will be more likely to read it soon.
