Tag: 10 Books I Want to Read by the End of the Year!

It’s been so long since I got around to doing a tag post here on the blog but this one really got me thinking! I’ve been in such a reading slump recently even though my TBR pile is glaring at me in annoyance – especially when I bring more books home ๐Ÿ˜… So, this tag got me thinking about which books are my top priorities for the next few months.

Big thanks to the wonderful Laura from Roachie’s Reviews for coming up with and tagging me in this post (even though it was super hard to only pick 10!). You can see which books Laura picked here!

Here we go!


Midnight Sun by Stephenie Meyer

I was a giant Twilight fan when I was younger and remember being devastated that this book wasn’t going to be released!

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

The Netflix adaption is fast approaching and this book has been on my shelves since Christmas!

Cinderella is Dead by Kalynn Bayron

I’ve seen this book everywhere and can’t wait to see what all the hype is about.

The Winter of the Witch by Katharine Arden

I started this book last year but had to put it down and never picked it back up again. I think subconsciously I didn’t want the series to end ๐Ÿ˜‚

The Nesting by C J Cooke

This book popped up on twitter a little while ago and drew me in immediately!

A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness

I’ve had a copy of this book for the longest time but never gotten around to actually reading it – it feels like the perfect Autumn read!

The Godfather by Mario Puzo

I remember talking to my dad about seven years ago about this book and I was so interested in it that he ordered it for me. Flash forward to now and, even though I haven’t read it, it’s become a very special book to me – now to see if the story lives up to my imagination ๐Ÿ˜‚

The Five by Hallie Ruebenhold

Combining by two fascinations for history and true crime it’s no surprise that this is on my TBR!

Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race by Renni Eddo-Lodge

With everything that’s happening in the world, it’s an important time for us to be educating ourselves about racism and actively doing all that we can to be anti-racist.

How Do We Know We’re Doing it Right? by Pandora Sykes

Continuing with my theme of getting into big-sister-style self-help books, I’ve been so excited to read this one, now it’s just a case of finding the time!

*also, I couldn’t make this post without mentioning Ghosts by Dolly Alderton which is published in October. I tried to stick to my physical TBR for the above but I just know that as soon as I can get my hands on this book it’ll be my top priority!


Going to tag a few lovely bookish people to see what their top picks are!

Marion, Louise, Aoife, Lis, Lili, Brittany and Imogen


Have you read any of these books? What did you think? What books are you hoping to read in the next few months? Iโ€™d love to know!

You can always find me over on Instagram and Twitter if youโ€™d like to discuss these books (or any others that Iโ€™ve featured) in more detail ๐Ÿ˜Œ

  1. Thanks for tagging me, Hannah!
    I really adore Katherine Arden’s writing style, so I hope you will like it/finish it this time around. I already started Shadow & Bone some time ago, put it away and never picked it up again. But I remember it had a nice writing style. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. This looks like a great variety of books! My friend keeps pestering me to read The Five, it sounds like a brilliant twist on the usual true crime focus on the killer rather than the victims. I have the audiobook of Renni Eddo-Lodgeโ€™s book on hold too – it sounds really eye opening and Iโ€™m looking forward to hearing your thoughts. Hope you have some great reads through the rest of 2020! ๐Ÿ“šโค๏ธ X
