I was tagged by the lovely Raven @Dreamy Addictions to do this tag. Thank you once more! ❤ 🙂 Be sure to check out her blog! You’re definitely missing out if you aren’t following her! For this tag you have to share the books that you own and still need to read in an alphabetical order. You can also include books from your Kindle and the ARCs
(both physical and digital) that you own.
THE and A do not count in my list, meaning those books are listed under the second word in their title.
As you may know, Neil Gaiman is one of my all time favourite authors and I want to read everything that he has written. Obviously American Gods counts towards that as well. I have heard amazing things about this book, I just need to find the time to read it as it is a rather large book.
I adore fantasy and an author that a lot of people recommended me was Robin Hobb. I bought Assassin’s Apprentice for the Kindle when it was a daily deal. I don’t think I will read this book anytime soon, as I want to finish some series before starting any new ones.
Blood for Blood – I have read the first book in this series ages ago and completely adored it. Wolf by Wolf was simply amazing! I hope that I will be able to get to this one soon.
By a Charm and a Curse – This is an ARC that I received from NetGalley. The only thing that I know is that this book takes places in a magical circus. Honestly, that’s the only thing that I needed to know.
Black Bird of the Gallows – Another ARC that I received from NetGalley. The synopsis for this one sounds intriguing and it’s a book that I plan on picking up whenever I’m in the mood for a romance.
(As it’s a paranormal romance book.)
Brisingr – The third book in The Inheritance Cycle, which is a series about dragons and one that I adore. The first two books were amazing and I can’t wait to get around to this one and to see where the story will go.
A Conjuring of Light – I loved the first book in this series, A Darker Shade of Magic. I can’t wait to continue reading about this world and these characters!
Cress – I have read both Cinder and Scarlet already and I plan on getting to Cress really soon!
(Either this or next month.) I really like the characters that Meyer has created in her books and I can’t wait to read more about them.
A Crown of Wishes – The Star-Touched Queen is one of my all time favourite books! I simply adored it and Chokshi’s writing was beautiful. I can’t wait to get to A Crown of Wishes, I have heard some amazing things about it.
The Demon King – I have heard many amazing things about The Seven Realms series and I can’t wait to read this book! Hopefully I will be able to read it some time soon
(maybe even as a buddy read).
The Darkest Minds – I bought this book ages ago, when I fist started getting into dystopian books
(which was some years ago) but for some reason never actually read it. I do want to get to it some time in the future, after all I’m a sucker when it comes to stories about people with special abilities.
A Dance with Dragons – I own this book in the separate editions. I will get to these books eventually.
(Probably not for a long time though.)
The Demon Inside is a book that I received from the author
(and one that I’m currently reading). It’s basically a zombie book. I will have a review for this book up next week, once I actually finish this book (and write the review) that is.
Dreadnought is an ARC that I received from NetGalley. I got this book ages ago, but I have yet to read it.
(I’m seriously behind on some of these ARCs!) It’s about superheroes and the main character is trans. I’m really exited to read this book in the future!
A Feast for Crows – A Song of Ice and Fire book, which I will read someday. Who knows when that day will actually come.
Fragile Things – A short story collection by Neil Gaiman. As I already mentioned in this post, I want to read all of Gaiman’s books. I don’t actually know anything more about this short story collection, but I’m exited to read it eventually.
Fangirl – I have read Eleanor & Park by this author and I wasn’t that impressed by it. Fangirl seems like a book that I would enjoy. I will be reading this book once I’m in the mood for a contemporary and a cute romance.
Falling Kingdoms – A young-adult fantasy book that I have heard great things about. I do plan on reading it
(obviously, since I own it), but I want to finish a few series first – as I have a habit of not finishing series that I started.
The only Charles Dickens book that I have ever read is A Christmas Carol. We just never had to read any of his books in high-school and I never picked up any on my own. Lets be real, most of his books are huge and intimidating! I really enjoyed his writing in A Christmas Carol and I definitely plan on reading more of his books in the future.
As I already mentioned once in this post, I have read and loved A Darker Shade of Magic. And for some reason I haven’t continued that series yet.
(Probably because I was too busy, but it could be an excuse.) I’m exited to get back into this world and see where the story will go!
I received this book as a gift some time ago. So far I have read three Murakami books and really enjoyed all of them, I do want to read more of his works in the future. I just need to be emotionally prepared for them, as they can get quiet depressing.
Rick Riordan is one of my all time favourite authors and I want to read everything that he has written. I’m really exited to read The Hidden Oracle, as I have heard amazing things about it. Plus I find it fascinating to read from a Gods point of view, especially Apollo’s!
I have read Shatter Me some time ago and while I did enjoy it, I didn’t love it. I have heard amazing things about the other two books in this series though and I can’t wait to read them. Especially since the fourth book is coming out this year!
The final book in The Inheritance Cycle. Not much to say about this, as I do have to read the third book, Brisingr, first. I love the cover for this book, but I might be biased as it is a dragon and it’s green
(and I love both of those things).
Another Murakami book that I own but haven’t read yet. This one I got from my mom, as she enjoyed it a lot and thought I would like it as well.
(She passed it down to me.) I literary know nothing about this book, but it’s Murakami so I’m most likely going to enjoy it.
Leigh Bardugo is one of my all time favourite authors and I adored her Grisha books
(and I mean both her trilogy and the Six of Crows duology). As soon as I heard that she was coming out with a short story collection of fairy tales set in the Grisha world I knew that I had to read it. This book is gorgeous and I can’t wait to get to it!
Science fiction is a genre that I enjoy, but rarely pick up. I have heard amazing things about The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet and a lot of people recommended it to me as well. I have no idea what it’s actually about and I don’t want to know either, I just want to go into it bling and see why people enjoy it so much.
More Than This – Patrick Ness is an author whose works I have really enjoyed, I want to read everything that he has written. I can’t wait to read More Than This, as I have heard amazing things about it and the premise sounds fascinating as well.
Magnus Chase – A series by the amazing Rick Riordan that I simply need to read! Especially since I already own all the books in the series and don’t have to wait for the next one to be released. Plus it’s about Norse Gods and I couldn’t be more exited about that!
The second book to The Darkest Minds, which I have already mentioned in this post. I don’t have anything to say about this book, as I haven’t even read the first one in the series.
I love reading Stephen King’s books and being scared by them. So far I have read 15 books by him and I enjoyed the majority. Pet Sematary is one of those classic King books that I have wanted to read for years. I actually got this book for Christmas from my best friend and I can’t wait to read it!
Gentlemen’s Bastards – The Lies of Locke Lamora, which is the first book in the series, is one of my all time favourite fantasy books. I seriously can’t wait to continue this series, though I want to reread The Lies of Locke Lamora first, as it’s been years since I first read it
(and don’t remember as much as I want to).
The Reborn King – This is a book that I received from the author. It’s about dragons, if it wasn’t obvious by the cover. I don’t know much more about this book, but I’m exited to start reading it soon.
The Raven Boys – I have heard so many amazing things about this series. I do want to read it eventually, but it’s not a priority. I really want to finish a few series before starting any new ones.
Spellslinger – I will be honest, the cover is what first drew me to this book. Then I actually read the synopsis and I wanted to read it even more. Plus I have heard great things about this author in general. Hopefully I will be able to read it soon!
This Savage Song – Another Victoria Schwab book that I own, but haven’t read yet. I want to finish The Shades of Magic series first before starting this one. So this book is going to sit on my shelf for a while longer.
Steelheart – I haven’t actually read any books by Brandon Sanderson yet. I know, shame on me as a lover of fantasy. Though I want to read all of his books, as they all sound fascinating. I’m going to start with Steelheart, seeing that I already own it – plus I do love stories about special powers!
The Song of Achilles – I have heard so many amazing things about this book and I know a ton of people who completely adore The Song of Achilles. I just need to prepare myself emotionally before I read this book, as I have a feeling that it’s going to break me.
A Storm of Swords – I own the separate edition of this book. This is also the next book in the A Song of Ice and Fire series that I need to read. Someday I will get to these books, but it takes me ages to read them
(so who knows when it will happen).
Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda – I have heard nothing but amazing things about this book and Becky Albertalli in general. The next time that I’m in the mood for a contemporary I will be picking this one up!
A lot of people recommended Theft of Swords to those who loved The Lies of Locke Lamora. And if you know me, you know that that is one of my all time favourite fantasy books. Plus the synopsis for Theft of Swords sounds fascinating and like something that I would love!
The Tiger’s Daughter is an ARC that I received from NetGalley.
(As I already mentioned, I’m a bit behind on my ARCs.) This is a fantasy book that sounds like something that I would love. Plus I have heard that it’s written in an epistolary form and I tend to enjoy books written like that a lot!
As I have already mentioned in this post, I have read Shatter Me and I enjoyed it. I didn’t love it though. I have heard that the series only gets better, so I’m very exited to read Unravel Me and then later Ignite Me. I’m hoping to read both books before the fourth one comes out this year.
Uprooted sounds like a book that I will completely adore! I honestly have no idea why I haven’t read it yet, especially since I have owned it for a few months now. I’m blaming it on the reading slump that I was last year
(and I mean all year long). I’m hoping to read this book as soon as possible!
I have read the Legend trilogy by Marie Lu before and I adored it at the time. Ever since then I have wanted to read more by Lu, but for some reason I never picked up The Young Elites
(though I do still want to read it). When I read the synopsis to Warcross I knew that I had to read it, it just sounds amazing!
X, Y, Z
Have you read any of these books? Which ones do you think I should get to first?
Thank you very much for reading my review and I hope that you have a wonderful day!
