Books I NEED to read in 2017! (And this time actually read them)


Hello everyone!

  1. Series I want to start
  2. Series I want to continue
  3. Series I want to finish
  4. Stand-alone books

I know. I KNOW. Don’t throw things (though you are obviously not throwing things, you’re quietly reading this -I hope?-) Those were loong lists, I didn’t plan to have them but well, life happens.

I’m setting myself a new goal and that is to at least complete three of each list in 2017 that means: I’ll start three of the listed series, I’ll continue three of the listed series, I’ll finish three of the listed series and I’ll read three of the listed stand alones. I think I can achieve that goal. I’ll update my 2017 goals post now.

Have you read (probably) any of the mentioned books? If so, let me know! Maybe that’s a guide of where I should start!

      1. I really enjoyed her Legend trilogy (though I didn’t really like the way it ended, but that’s another issue) and I was exited for The Young Elites since it was announced. But I wanted to wait for all the books to be released, so that I don’t have to wait! 🙂 Hope you enjoy her books and writing!

  1. I’ve read quite a lot of the books on the list but I’ll just mention a bunch I really loved. Shades of Magic and An Ember in the Ashes are both series I absolutely adored and you should definitely read them!! I confess I DNF’d the fourth book in The Lunar Chronicles series but the first three books were amazing. You should definitely read book 2 of Six of Crows and The Wrath and the Dawn! Both are hella diverse and amazing. Simon VS gave me ALL THE FEELS so that’s a standalone that should be on your radar. ❤ I hope you find time to read lots of books this year!! <33

    1. Thank you for the comment! All the ones you mentioned are planned to-be-read this year and I hope I get to them. You’re the first one I heard saying that about the Lunar Chronicles, that’s interesting. I read the first one and it was okay but left me a bit meh. I hope you have a great year too!

  2. WOW that’s a freaking awesome list!! I think you just made me add a bunch to mine >.< Also, I loved the Lunar Chronicles and I really enjoyed Percy Jackson and especially Heroes of Olympus that comes after. An Ember in the Ashes was also a book I really loved but I haven't read the second one yet since the third will take such a long time to come. It Ends With Us, Salt to the Sea and Since You've Been Gone are among the first books in my TBR! Happy readings!
