The end of the year is approaching rather too quickly, with Halloween now out of the way, if you aren’t American, the next big holiday is Christmas, and then…BAM, it’s New Year. Although I’ve been very happy with what I’ve read so far this year, I love a good old list, so here are the books I really want to get around to before midnight strikes on the 31st of December.
> Uncommon Type by Tom Hanks
If you didn’t know by now, I’m a major Tom Hanks fan, he is my favourite actor if you didn’t know, so when I heard he was releasing a book, I had to have my hands on it. I’ll be ashamed of myself if I don’t get to his book by the end of the year. I heard the audiobook is really good as Tom Hanks reads it, and plus my physical book is signed so it’s looking likely I’ll give the audiobook a try.
> Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix by JK Rowling
The most annoying thing about this book is I started my reread way back in the summer. I got about halfway through and just put it down. I won’t be restarting this book, as I already know the story so I’ll just pick up where I left off. But I’ve had enough of it sitting on my bedside table, it isn’t a small book either.
> Winter by Marissa Meyer
I really enjoy the Lunar Chronicles and if I complete Winter, I would have ticked off another series off my list. I really want to get around to this book soon but the size always puts me off. It would be a bonus if I also got to Stars Above, the novella.
> The Hate You Give by Angie Thomas
How can I not get around to this book this year? It’s probably the one number book of the year. It’s a must that I read it before the year is out.
Honourary mention goes to Some Kind of Wonderful by Giovanna Fletcher. Giovanna Fletcher is one of my number one auto-buy authors. This is her newest release and it’s not even out yet. It comes out on the 16th of November and I can’t wait to get my hands on it.
I haven’t included too many books as there are only two months left of the year and seeing the pattern of how my reading has gone previously, I can fit another 10 books in before the year ends. Therefore I didn’t want to restrict myself to only the books I’ve mentioned in this list.
Have you got any must-read books before the year is out? Let’s chat in the comments.
until next time,
