This is not the topic for today but I really wanted to make a list of some of the backlist books I really want to finish by the end of this year, and hopefully keep them on my mind every time I start a new one. I’m also typing up this post a couple of weeks in advance and the hope is that I would have read atleast a couple of these books by the time you are reading it.
The Lies of Locke Lamora is probably the oldest book on my TBR ( I have cleaned it up a lot recently) and I think it’s time I read it already. But I’m also very skeptical about adult fantasy in general, so I’m very scared to start this book. Hopefully it’ll turn out to be a lot of fun.
I’ve only read Bennett’s fantasies till date, so I’m very interested to see how he fares in a near futuristic dystopian setting. And it’s a fairly short one, so I hope I’ll read it soon.
One of my most anticipated reads of the year, The Tiger at Midnight is my kind of book and I absolutely have no reason to not have read it yet.
I’ve been a bit unsure about Empire of Sand because I’ve heard the pacing is a bit slow but all of my friends have loved it and I should try and finish it before the release of Realm of Ash.
Forward Me Back to You was on my tentative yearly TBR for 2019 and I really want to read Mitali’s writing because she is so acclaimed and I don’t wanna miss out.
The Rage of Dragons has been quite a rage this year and I definitely wanna see what’s all the fuss about. And it’s always fun to discover new POC authors.
I don’t know why I haven’t read Small Town Hearts yet but I really want to. And that gorgeous cover definitely deserves to be read and cherished.
I read about 20% of The Final Empire and then had to return the book to the library (and unsurprisingly, there’s a huge waitlist). It turned out to be pretty interesting, so I hope I will get back to it before the year ends.
I dicovered this book because it was present on a “best” list put out by GR and I found the premise to be interesting. And it’s probably time I try atleast some sort of sci-fi book.
I recently read The Poppy War and was completely blown away, and though I want to badly read The Dragon Republic, I’m just taking a small break. But I definitely want to read it by the end of this year.
Have you read any of these books? What did you think of them? Which ones do you think I should read first? Please feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below…
