A bibliophile’s biggest problem is our growing TBR list. This of course is directly linked to the fact that we suffer from chronic bibliomania and can’t stop buying books. Every year we set these giant reading goals and as much as we try to stick to them, every so often we are distracted by yet another pretty, shiny, new release. These are a couple of books I really wanted to read last year. Alas! I have not. I hope I have better luck at meeting my reading goals this year.
I am a huge fan of Outlander. I really loved the novel as well as the television series. When season two aired I knew I had to read the next book. But as the universe would have it I just didn’t have the time to commit to reading this giant novel. I know it is going to be one of those novels that is going to suck me in for like an entire weekend but I just haven’t had an entire weekend to spare… I will definitely get to it this year.
I have heard so many conflicted opinions about this novel. I really wanted to give it a try in 2016 but I couldn’t get past the first chapter. I’m not sure whether that was because the novel wasn’t enjoyable or whether I was stuck in a reading slump. Apparently, this series was suppose to be adapted for screen and Emma Watson’s on board. Hm…
I really enjoyed Scarlet so much, she is my absolutely favourite character so far. I honestly thought I would finish this series in 2016. But I just never got around to it.
This was one of my most anticipated reads of the year. When it was released I bought it immediately and then I started work which meant less time to read…
I don’t have the third novel in this trilogy. Yep, that is the excuse I am going to use for this one. Haha. But on a more serious note, I’ve heard only great things about this series. The main character seems quite intelligent and badass, the kind that’s strength is sharp wit rather than brute force.
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas
I read the first novel last year and kind of enjoyed it but also found it problematic. I guess there is just something about Feyre and Tamlin that puts me off. But I have heard, on good authority, that the sequel is a game changer. Some readers have even gone as far as claiming everything Maas does wrong in Throne of Glass is redeemed in this trilogy. Hmm, that’s intriguing enough for me. Also, this fandom just seems like so much fun! I wanna join in the conversation on Twitter and Tumblr… Please let me sit with you guys, LOL.
