Hello lovely people!
This year has taken its mental toll on everyone and to be honest, I’ve been in a reading slump since March when lockdown was announced for us. Me, having no energy whatsoever to read, watched countless amazing books be released without reading them.
As we’re nearing the end of the year, I thought I should compile a list of books I DEFINITELY have to read next year and why not create a book tag about it as well? (I really don’t know if a booktag like this already exists, if it does, just let me know)
- Don’t forget to tag the creator of the post!
- You can list as many books as you want and tell us why you want to read it.
- You can tag as many people you want!
Yeah, I don’t really mind about the rules, this tag is just for good fun!
1.) Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
I’ve heard so many good things about this book and the fact that it won a Goodreads Choice Award, makes it a must for me!
2.) Clap When You Land by Elizabeth Acevedo
I definitely want to read more books in verse and the synopsis intrigues me so much. The fact that I’ve seen to many good reviews about it cements its place on this list.
3.) All the Stars and Teeth by Adalyn Grace
Pirates? Magic? MERMAIDS? Count me in.
4.) Dread Nation by Justina Ireland
Yeah, I know this isn’t a 2020 release, but I really want to read it.
5.) Chain of Gold by Cassandra Clare
For some reason that makes me incredibly angry, I still haven’t received my copy I PPRE-ORDERED from Waterstones, but I’m a Cassandra Clare fan so this is an automatic buy for me.
6.) I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou
Once again, not a 2020 release, but I really want to read it.
7.) The Invisible Life of Addie Larue by V.E. Schwab
This book has raving reviews and it sounds really interesting but for some reason seeing soooo much Instagram posts about it puts me off and I really don’t know why. Still want to read it, though.
8.) Tristan Strong Punches a Hole in the Sky by Kwame Mbalia
Another Rick Riordan imprint? African mythology?? I need it.
9.) Legendborn by Tracy Deonn
That cover is gorgeous and the synopsis sounds AMAZING.
10.) These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong
Once again, the synopsis sounds AMAZING.
11.) The City We Became by N.K. Jemisin
I may only have read one of her books, but I desperately need to read the rest.
12.) Witches Steeped In Gold by Ciannon Smart
That. Cover. Is. To. Die. For.
Hope you enjoyed this tag, and if you want to do it, nothing is going to stop you!
Till we meet again
