Do you ever look at your bookshelves and think ‘damn, I’ve had these books for a while and somehow still haven’t read them’? I admit I do this way too often, especially because there are quite a lot of books I, for some reason, still haven’t picked up. So, today I wanted to share ten books/book series that I haven’t yet read, but really want to/need to.
Daughter of Smoke and Bone – Laini Taylor
This is a series I’ve been meaning to read for a few years now. I’ve heard so many great things about it and practically everyone loves it, so I think it’s about time I got around to reading it. I also literally know nothing about this series, but I’m super excited to jump in with no expectations or knowledge!
On The Jellicoe Road – Melina Marchetta
This book has been on my TBR for years, like literally such a long time. I remember when I was about 16, I found a quote from this book on Tumblr and have been wanting to read it ever since (I know, it’s been like 5 years since and I still haven’t read it okay, I am ashamed).
A Darker Shade of Magic – V.E Schwab
I know, I know, I still haven’t read this series. What’s worse is I still haven’t read anything by V.E Schwab yet…. But, with the release of the last book in the series, A Conjuring of Light, I figured it was about damn time I got around to reading it! I’ll probably pick it up in the next couple of months, and I can’t wait to see what all the hype is about!
The Book Thief – Markus Zusak
Another book I’m pretty ashamed to say I haven’t read. I was supposed to read this a couple of years ago, but I kept pushing it back and finding other books I was more interested in. I’m really hoping to read it soon, though, so fingers crossed I love it just as much as everyone else!
Shatter Me – Tahera Mafi
Okay, I know, there’s a lot of books in here that I’m sure everyone’s read and I’m just really, really late to the party on. This obviously being one of them. I’ve heard so many good things, but also a few not so good things as well. I’m not sure when I’ll get around to it but hopefully, it’ll sometime in the near future!
The Lunar Chronicles – Marissa Meyer
Again, another series practically everybody’s read apart from me. I’ve heard so many good things about this series and each book sounds amazing, so I really hope I can get around to reading them very soon!
Ready Player One – Ernest Cline
This book just sounds super unique and fun and entertaining, and again, I feel like everyone’s read it except me. Another book I’m not sure when I’ll get to, but I hope it’ll be read in the near future.
Slammed – Colleen Hoover
This is probably a surprising one, seeing as I’m sure you all know by now how much I love Colleen Hoover’s novels. This series is the only CoHo I’m yet to read (apart from her Never Never books with Tarryn Fisher which I’ll probably never [ha, so punny] get around to reading), and I’ve heard it’s amazing so I cannot wait to pick it up!
I’ll Give You The Sun – Jandy Nelson
I’ve kind of put off reading this book since it’s so hyped up. I’ve been worried it wouldn’t live up to the hype for me, since Jandy Nelson’s other book, The Sky Is Everywhere, was a little bit of a disappointment for me. Let’s hope I enjoy this one more, though!
Carry On – Rainbow Rowell
The last book I still need to read is another really popular book. I absolutely loved Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, though found Eleanor and Park kinda meh… I feel like I can’t go wrong with this book, since it’s basically like Harry Potter and it’s the story the main character in Fangirl wrote. I’m really hoping to read this one soon!
That’s really just a few of the books I am yet to read because let’s be real I need to read a lot of books…..
But anyway, let me know what books you still need to read! And if you’ve read any of the books I listed, let me know your thoughts!
Until next time,
