List Of Books I Want To Read This Year

We all love reading, don’t we all? We love escaping from our reality and just indulge in someone else’s life. It’s so strange how such something fictional can sometimes make us feel sane. Books are capable of playing with our emotions and thoughts and the more you read, I’ve realized the more focused you are in your life.

I didn’t read much last year, but this year I have decided to at least finish reading 10+ books! I know 10 is still a low number but for me, it’s a start. I’m just so busy that for me 10 is a still a great number.

Anyway, below is my list of the books I want to read this year!

  1. Outsider – Stephen King
  2. The Hate U Give – Angie Thomas
  3. Elevation – Stephen King
  4. I’ll Be Gone In The Dark – Michelle Mcnamara
  5. The Witch Doesn’t Burn In This One – Amanda Lovelace
  6. Children of Blood and Bone – Tomi Adeyemi
  7. Leah on the Offbeat – Becky Albertalli
  8. Kingdom of Ash – Sarah J. Maas
  9. The Trials of Apollo – Rick Riordan
  10. Sadie – Courtney Summers
  11. What if it’s us – Adam Silvera
  12. All the Little Lights – Jamie McGuire
  13. Emergency Contact – Mary H.K. Choi
  14. Starry Eyes – Jenn Bennett
  15. The Cheerleaders – Kaza Thomas
  16. Love, Hate and Other Filters – Samira Ahmed
  17. The Dark Between Stars – Atticus
  18. Take me With you – Andrea Gibson
  19. Helium – Rudy Francisco
  20. Dracul – Dacre Stoker
  21. Then she was gone – Lisa Jewell
  22. The Chalk Man – C.J. Tudor

Hopefully, this year I would be able to complete them all.

I would love to know which books you guys are looking forward to read this year! There are some interesting and under-rated ones out there that needs a reader like you and me, right?

Until then,

Peace neighbors,

Mini Book Review of Six of Crows

So a few weeks ago, I finished reading Leigh Bardugo’s Six of Crows and I almost forgot to review it.

Truthfully, I was a bit hesitant whether or not I will like this book or not because I don’t prefer Fantasy books that much. However, after reading this book, I guess I will try and give more chances to Fantasy genre now.

Title:
Six of Crows

Author:
Leigh Bardugo

Book Summary:- 
Amsterdam inspired–Ketterdam, a bustling hub  of international trade where anything can be had for the right price–and no one knows better than criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker. Kaz is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams. But he can’t pull it off alone…He needs a crew and they are the only ones who might stand between the world and destruction–if they don’t kill each other first.

My opinion:-
I think the story went quite smoothly. The characters evolved with the perfect flow and rhythm as well. The author describes the places and the situations adroitly which makes the reader want to keep on reading. The characters were defining and I could sometimes sympathize with them. It’s definitely a page turner. However, there were a lot of cliche scenes/scenarios that people are familiar with and that sometimes would take the excitement away. Nonetheless, it was an interesting read and I would surely recommend to people who love heist with a bit of magic.

Words to describe this book:-
Amusing. Interesting. Magical. Exciting.

Rating:
4/5
