books i want to read before the end of 2019

Hey y’all!

So. December is somehow upon us (actually it’s over a week in), and I’m not ready. 2019 has actually been a great year for me, both reading wise and personally, but I’m still not ready for it to be over.

In the month of December, I hope to read 25 books….yikes. I wasn’t planning on it, but I happened to finish my 75th book on November 30th, so basically, it was meant to be (aside from finals taking over my life, of course). Fortunately, I am planning on participating in 2-3 read-a-thons which should help a bit

Alright so here’s the TBR.

  1.  White Oleander // Janet Fitch
  2. To Drink Coffee with a Ghost // Amanda Lovelace
  3. Slut! // Leora Tanenbaum
  4. 50 Shades of Grey // EL James
  5. The Princess and the Fangirl // Ashley Poston
  6. Dracula // Bram Stoker
  7. The Julian Chapter // RJ Palacio
  8. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them // Net Scamander (JK Rowling)
  9. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows // JK Rowling
  10. Eclipse // Stephanie Meyer
  11. Through the Zombie Glass // Gena Showalter
  12. Coldest Girl in Cold Town // Holly Black
  13. The Afterlife of Holly Chase // Cynthia Hand
  14. The Diviners // Libba Bray
  15. Unravel Me // Tahereh Mafi
  16. Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock // Matthew Quick
  17. A Darker Shade of Magic // VE Schwab
  18. Little and Lion // Brandy Colbert
  19. The Life Changing Magic of Not Giving a Fuck // Sarah Knight
  20. Talking as Fast as I Can // Lauren Graham
  21. The Kiss Quotient // Helen Hoang
  22. Princess in Waiting // Meg Cabot
  23. The Boxcar Children // Gertrude Chandler Warner
  24. Mary Poppins // PL Travers
  25. The Turn of the Key // Ruth Ware
  26. Emily the Strange // Rob Reger

All of these are tentative and either books that I already own or are available on Libby.

This is going to be SO FUN.

Twilight by Stephanie Meyer

This has been an obnoxiously long time coming.

I managed to avoid the Twilight renaissance, and I thank God every day for it. This is not to say that if you were or are a “Twihard,” that you are wrong. I am just thrilled I waited until the hype died down, and I am out of any young reader phase so I can be more objective in analyzing the book for what it is.

Okay. Here goes nothing. Continue reading “Twilight by Stephanie Meyer”
