Okay I KNOW it’s been months since I last posted, I’m sorry !! Life got in the way of reading and my book slump lasted FIVE WHOLE ASS MONTHS?! It was extremely excruciating 😤
Since it’s been months of reading nothing, my TBR is through the ROOF and I needed to weed out the ones I wanted to read asap, so why not tell you guys the top ten books I NEED to read before 2021? I originally got this idea from Paperfury’s latest blog post and thought it’d be fun to do, so be sure to check out her post out too!
If you have read any of these, please link your reviews or comment your thoughts below! I’d love to know what you think!
Let’s jump in!!
Top Ten Books I Need to Read
Firstly, From Blood and Ash: i’ve heard SO MANY GOOD THINGS and yet I can’t find it anywhere online for a reasonable price 😢 Last time I checked it was FORTY DOLLARS for a paperback?? BUT once I find it for cheap, i’ll be reading it straight away.
Kingdom of The Wicked: okay so this is currently in my book depository cart and i’m so so tempted. i’ve heard nothing but good things and I loved the first two books in the stalking jack the ripper series (i haven’t read the other two yet!) and I heard it’s like those BUT WITH FANTASY?? Yes please 😌
Queen of Nothing: I started this one ages ago when it first came out but for some reason (??) I just didn’t finish it. So i’m gonna need to finish that before I pick up my copy of the king of elfhame
An Ember in The Ashes: after getting back into booktube, i’ve heard SO many good things about the female empowerment in this series as well as the writing! Plus, the whole premise sounds so interesting! I have it sitting on my shelf, just gotta stop being lazy and pick it up 🙊
A Curse So Dark and Lonely: this series is another beauty and the beast retelling (like acotar!) and since I loved acotar with my whole heart, I thought it would be awesome to read this one too! I’ve heard mixed reviews about the series, but it sounds interesting so I really want to give it a go!
The Invisible Life of Addie Larue: okay so, this isn’t my usual genre BUT the whole synopsis sounds SO COOL! There’s been quite a few mixed reviews about it since it was released but i’ve heard more good things than bad!
Red Rising: I received the fairyloot hardcover editions of these through a giveaway I won at the beginning of the year and they look so pretty AND one of my fave book tubers JocelynReads said it was her favourite series ever, so I thought I might as well give it a go? but I haven’t had the time yet this year 😠
Wicked Fox: BookswithChloe has RAVED about this book for so so long but I just haven’t had the money to buy the hardcover edition yet so i’ve been waiting for that but I lowkey can’t wait anymore and might just buy the paperback lmao
Shadow of The Fox: This is BooksWithChloes December Patreon read! I’ve wanted to read this since the around June but just haven’t had the time/picked it up but that’s not a good enough excuse. Now it’s THE TIME.
Crooked Kingdom: After taking a couple of goes to get into Six of Crows then LOVING it, I decided not to pick up CK straight away in case I had trouble getting into it like SoC but looking back, the SoC cliffhanger is so intense I might have to pick it up for my next read!
I doubt I’ll be able to get to all of these this year but writing them out kind of keeps me more accountable 😅 I’m so excited to dive into these and I’ll definitely post reviews for the ones I do end up getting too!
