Books I hoped to read in 2021

Let the lists begin.  December is definitely the month of lists.  I saw this on the Bibliosanctum earlier today and it reminded me that I wanted to do something similar.

It doesn’t matter how many books I read I can never quite seem to catch up with my own optimistic ideals.  I want all the books, it seems greedy on the face of it but I can’t help myself.  Books are my passion and until I can find the secret of immortality or someone invents a time turner I shall simply keep muddling along, hoping for the best and believing I can read everything.  So, here is a list of some of the books I was confident that I’d read this year, books that I still intend to read:

Brother Red by Adrian Selby

Brother Red

The End of Men by Christina Sweeney-Baird


The Kingdoms by Natasha Pulley


She Who Became the Sun by Shelley Parker-Chan


The Pariah by Anthony Ryan


The Witch Haven by Sasha Peyton Smith


Once Upon a Broken Heart by Stephanie Garber


Vespertine by Margaret Rogerson


Midnight in Everwood by MA Kuzniar


Under the Whispering Door by TJ Klune


Have you read any of these?

    I haven’t read any of these either. I still need to put together a list like this and it always makes me sad. I wish authors would slow down so we can catch up!

      Yeah, me too – although I’m always desperate for the next book too! You can’t win.

    The Natasha Pulley book is one I’d like to read too as I’ve enjoyed her previous books. I love the Midnight in Everwood cover. That’s part of how I end up with massive lists of unread books, being caught by a lovely cover and then needing to know more 😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      Oh Yes, I’m familiar with that feeling – I love covers.

    I still have The Pariah on my radar and hope to be able to read it next year…

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yes, I’ve not given up with these books. I’m just going to need to be a bit more careful about requesting books – but I get a bit giddy sometimes.

    I also still need to read Vespertine and Midnight in Everwood! Once Upon a Broken Heart and Under the Whispering Door were very good though!

    Haha, I always have such mixed feelings making this list because it’s sad seeing how many books I missed but it also helps a lot in targeting the books I still MUST READ and that makes it more manageable. Looks like we have a few books in common here!

      I was hoping for December to be my catch up month but alas the best laid plans of this book reader were destined to not go to plan
