Books I really want to read before the end of the year! Top 5 Saturday

Am I the crazy person that’s already signed up to 4 blog tours in January… yes, yes I am. So because of this, a lot of the books I had planned to read before the end of the year will unfortunately have to hit the back burner. But these books, these are the ones I simply need to read. Whether it’s the latest in a series I love or a brand new book by a brand new author that I have heard too many good things about to pass it up. Because it’s me, and because I am terrible at sticking to TBR’s of any kind, I wouldn’t put too much stock in me reading all of these before the end of 2019, but I have the best of intentions & that’s the main thing right?

Starsight – Brandon Sanderson

I’ve been a big Sanderson fan for a few years now since reading his Mistborn trilogy & was so excited when Fairyloot included Skyward last year. I’ve been, not so patiently, awaiting the sequel, and now it’s finally here I just know I am going to have to drop everything and pick up Spensa’s story.

Capturing the Devil – Kerri Maniscalco

This is one of those books that I am both dying and hesitant to read. I loved the first three books in the series and Audrey-Rose and Thomas are my OTP. However, I simply don’t want their story to end. I’m always said when I come to the last book in a series and this one is no different, I will have to pick it up soon though to avoid any spoilers.

We Hunt the Flame – Hafsah Faizal

This was one of my most anticipated releases of the year, so why I haven’t picked it up yet is beyond me. It contains pretty much everything I love in a story and the reviews for this one have been out of this world.

The Silence of the Girls – Pat Barker

I love a good re-telling, especially when it’s from a totally different perspective. This one focuses on all the unknown and unmentioned women that got left out of all the Greek tragedies. I have heard some wonderful reviews for this one and as a lover of Greek mythology in general I am excited to pick it up.

There Will Come a Darkness – Katy Rose Pool

I love a good ‘gang’ style read, and this one definitely sounds intriguing. An exiled Prince, ruthless killer, once-faithful leader, reckless gambler and a dying girl, I can see where this is heading and I am so here for it.

Have you read any of these yet? Or have any of them made it on to your end of year TBR? Let me know in the comments.
