It’s time for another tag and I honestly do feel that the timing for this one is perfect. What better time is there to think about the books that you need to read than at the end of one year and the start of another? So, like Caitlin, I’m definitely going to try and get the seven books that I mention here read next year. I also seriously want to start reading more, like I used to, in 2020 and hopefully keep at least kind of on top of new releases. So fingers crossed that it goes well.
Thank you so much to Caitlin for tagging me to do this. You should all definitely check out her answers along with the rest of her wonderful page; I can guarantee that you’ll find plenty to interest you.

A Book That A Certain Friend Is Always Telling You To Read
There isn’t just one particular person who keeps telling me to read The Seven Husbands Of Evelyn Hugo, it’s more like every blogger whose page that I look at is screaming at others to read it. So I definitely feel that I should hurry up and do so as soon as possible. Everybody seems to adore Taylor Jenkins Reid‘s books so I seriously need to find out what all the fuss is about. Hopefully I’ll pick this one up fairly early in the new year.
A Book That’s Been On Your TBR Forever And Yet You Still Haven’t Read It
Not only is Peter Pan And Wendy on my TBR I also own a copy of it and I think it’s probably the unread book that I’ve had for the longest? I actually can’t remember when I got it but when I was going through my books the other day I decided to read the first few paragraphs and was kind of curious. I don’t think it would take long to read either so 2020 will definitely be the year that I get this one read!
A Book In A Series You’ve Started, But Haven’t Gotten Around To Finishing
Sadly there are several series that I could pick for this question. There are five that immediately come to mind without me even having to take the time to think. So ideally I’d like to get all of them read in their entirety and finished next year. I loved the start of them all so I don’t really know why I never finished them. For this question I’m going to pick The Dark Days Pact though. It’s definitely one that I want to finish and also a series that I haven’t really seen mentioned since I started blogging. Plus I’m kind of in the mood for a regency era story with a supernatural twist!
A Classic You’ve Always Liked The Sound Of, But Have Never Actually Read
Lately I actually keep saying that I want to try and get some classics read. If I actually manage to get reading, and have a chance to get some of the books that I’m desperate to read, read, then I am hoping to read either one a month or every other month. Hopefully anyway. One major one that I always hear fantastic things about – and have somehow never even seen an adaptation of – is Pride And Prejudice. So that’s definitely one of the first that I hope to pick up.
A Popular Book That It Seems Everyone But You Has Read
For this one I definitely have to go with A Court Of Thorns And Roses. I don’t even know how I haven’t read this series yet. It’s by Sarah J. Maas (and I’ve loved what I’ve read by her so far) and it’s about the fae (which I also adore). So how have I not read this yet? Seriously how? 2020 I 100% will get this series read! And hopefully fall in love with it too.
Side Note: Throne Of Glass is another of those series that I have to finish and I’m highly anticipating Sarah J Maas’ next book and have her other on my TBR so basically in 2020 I want to read everything that this author has written. Fingers crossed.
A Book That Inspired A Film/TV Adaptation That You Really Love, But Just Haven’t Picked Up Yet
You is what immediately came to mind and, once again, I can’t believe I haven’t read this book yet. I really wanted to read both books before the new series came out and now… now I don’t know what to do. Do I read the books first and wait for the show or watch the show immediately because I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS NEXT!! Decisions, decisions… Either way I’m reading the books in 2020 though.
A Book You See All Over Instagram But Haven’t Picked Up Yet
I haven’t been on my Instagram for a while – I’m hoping to start it up again in the new year – but I definitely remember seeing Stalking Jack The Ripper on it a fair few times and I’m desperate to read that series. I’m seriously hoping that I love it to be honest as, after being ill, I gave into the temptation to buy the whole series. So this is probably the first of these books that I’ll get to but I’m desperate to read them all. Ideally I’ll even get them read in the first half of 2020 but, knowing me, I doubt it. But yes the Stalking Jack The Ripper books are one of the next few that I’m reading for certain.
I definitely think it’s a wonderful end/start of year tag. I’m probably going to re-do it next year at this time, in fact.
Naturally there’s no pressure for anyone to do this but if you do I look forward to seeing your answers.
