This is for the books that I've been neglecting for ages. Ones I was SUPER excited to read when I bought but never had the chance to pick up. This is my shout out post for these neglected books.
Because I've toned down my review book requesting by a lot as well as putting myself on a book buying ban, I've had more time to read my own books. Here are some of the books I'm reading (see? not hoping to read, or wishing to read, but straight up reading) this year:
All of these are sequels to series that I've already started. I really want to
finish The Vampire Academy series. I read the third book, Shadow Kiss, in
March and want to continue and finish it this year so I can start the Bloodlines
series. I love Katie McGarry and recently read Breaking the Rules (Pushing the
Limits #1.5) and now want to continue and read about Isiah's story in
Crash Into You
Since The Lux series is over, I really want to finish it. I only own Origin but
once I read it, I'll buy Opposition and read that. I read The Girl of Fire
and Thorns back in 2012 and I loved it.. but embarrassingly enough I still
haven't picked up the sequel The Crown of Embers yet. I wanted to wait
and read Cress closer to Winter's release date which is this year, so that's
what I'll be doing. I read Archetype last year and thought it was a fantastic
futuristic NA novel. It is a duology and I want to finish it with Prototype
I love any book written by Jenny Han. I didn't want to start the Burn for Burn
series until all the books are out… and they're all out so I now am free to marathon
it all. Dangerous Girls has been on my list for years because I love
mystery/thrillers. I finally bought it but seem to always forget that I actually
Ten things we did (and probably shouldn't have) was one of the
first ever contemporaries I had my eyes on.. but for some reason I never
actually read it. I read an excerpt of Live Through This before it came out
and I was hooked.. it is actually a very short book. I need to read it
Seconds will be my first attempt at reading a graphic novel.
Angelfall and World After: I own the first two and now knowing the
series has been demoted to a trilogy, where the last book will come out
this year, I can go ahead and read those two!
I love Maggie Stiefvater, and The Scorpio Races is the only book I haven't read by her (I don't count the fae series she wrote). Uninvited was on my wish list as soon as I read it is about genetics and now that the sequel (it's only a duology) is coming out soon, I want to read it then if I loved it, I'll buy and read the sequel
In my attempt to read more adult books, I'll be picking up Written in Red. I know the third book is coming out (already came out?) this year which means I can pick this one up. I am obsessed with mystery/thrillers and The Cuckoo's Calling is exactly that. It doesn't hurt that JK Rowling wrote it. She's only just my queen.
