I shared my reading goals for 2021 last week (if you want to see them click here). However I thought it would be nice to me to share 21 books I want to read during this year, I ma hoping it will help me focus on my TBR and maybe finish a few series! Narrowing my list down to 21 books was really difficult! I was a lot harder than I thought it would be!
The House of Hades & Heroes of Olympus; Heroes of Olympus Book 4 and 5 by Rick Riordan
I started reading this series during the summer and while I have slowly been making my way through the series and I think it is time I finish it!
Mina and the Undead by Amy Mcaw
I have bee really looking forward to this book since the cover release. While it is a horror and I don’t tend to read them as there hasn’t been much excitement in life recently I thought I would give this a go! With Vampires and Mysteries I am hoping I will enjoy it.
To Kill a Mockingbird and Go Set a Watchman – Harper Lee
While I have heard mixed reviews about Go Set a Watchman it has been on my bookcase gathering dust since it was newly published, I think it is about time I sit down and read it or I will always be wondering what it was about. I also haven’t read to Kill a Mockingbird for at least 15 years, so it would be a nice refresher to re-read it.
A River of Royal Blood by Amanda Joy
I read the excerpt which was available on NetGalley and loved it. The concept is not something that I have read before and I am looking forward to getting my hands on the book and reading the rest of it!
Thief of Time by Terry Pratchett
I have a few discworld novels on my TBR but this year I am hoping to read Thief of Time. As someone who enjoyed Hogfather, the Auditors make another appearance and I can’t wait to see what they have in store for the characters this time.
The Stolen Kingdom by Jillian Boehme
This book is due to be published on 2 March 2021 and from the description it is a book that I will love. Magic, Kingdoms and forbidden love what more could I possibly want!
Crescent City by Sarah J Maas
If you have been following me for a while you will know I loved the Throne of Glass series, it was one of the few series I actually managed to start and finish last year! I didn’t manage to get to this book though so there should be no surprise that it is here.
Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton
I was bought this for my birthday by a friend and the blurb sounds amazing. A murder mystery with time travel! As someone who enjoys reading the occasional mystery this sound right up my alley.
Mistborn Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson
I have heard a lot of positive things about this series and this has led me to picking it up. I am hoping to read the first one soon and if the series is as good as everyone says I will probably binge the series.
The Hobbit by J R R Tolkien
I started this book last year (of you count 10 pages read) as starting it! I enjoyed reading Lord of the Rings a few years ago though I did feel it was a slow start. The Hobbit is meant to be a much easier read aimed at younger children, but when I picked it up I clearly wasn’t in the right mood to read it so hopefully this year I will manage to pick it up at the right time.
The Apollo Series by Rick Riordan
I have nearly read all the Rick Riordan series that I currently own, the first two books on this list are the end of one of Rick Riordan’s series. This series I have completed on my bookcase and I know I need to start it soon. But I am trying to reduce the amount of ongoing series that I am reading. Though my first and second reads of the year are both the beginning of a series (we will all have to ignore this for now!).
The Complete Winnie-the-Pooh by A. A. Milne
I haven’t read much Winnie-the-Pooh, but when I was a lot younger (at least 20 years younger) I was gifted two copies of this. While I have put one aside of Charity, considering I wanted to keep hold of the other I feel that it should be time that I read it!
Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
Every year I make the effort to read a classic book, and for Christmas of 2019 my fiancé gave me a beautiful copy of this book by Charles Dickens. I read a Christmas Carol just before Christmas and while I am aware that it is not typical for Dickens’ writing I would like to read this classic during 2021.
