I’m going to keep this post short and sweet as I am already behind in posting it. As you can see, October was not the best reading month for me. I am only 7 books away from my Goodreads reading challenge of 75 books for the year so I am hoping to reach my goal by the end of November.
It’s Mid-October which means there are only two and a half months left until 2020! Today, I’m going to share which 5 books I am most excited to read before the new year.
* Books are in no particular order
1. The Bane Chronicles by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, and Maureen Johnson
I have 4 Shadowhunter books that I need to read in order to catch up.
- The Bane Chronicles
- Ghosts of the Shadow Market
- Red Scrolls of Magic
- Queen of Air and Darkness
Are you familiar with the ‘If you liked this book, you’ll like this one’ recommendation posts? This blog post is a little different as I put my own twist on it. The book on the left is a recent read that I greatly enjoyed. The corresponding book on the right is a book I added to my TBR because I enjoyed the other one so much.
I LOVED The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah. A historical fiction taking place in 1940’s France, it shows us how two very different sisters dealt with the occupation of Germany and showed us that love could still prevail in the toughest of times.
Much like The Nightingale, All the Light We Cannot See is a highly praised historical fiction also based in World-War II France. This book is also written in two perspectives and I am excited to see whether Anthony Doerr can interweave these different perspectives into a smooth narrative.
