Hello, hello! It’s been a great year for me as far as reading is concerned. I mean, sureI haven’t read hundreds of books but the books I did end up reading were really good. There were maybe a couple which disappointed me and that’s like, nothing in a sea of good books. However, that does not mean that I have read as much as I wanted to. I still have a few books I want to finish reading before the year ends. The list is truly ambitious and it’s very unlikely that I might finish reading them because well, none of these books are what one would call a light read.
When they say go big or go home, I took that to mean go home with big books. So, here I am with my list. I am going to list the sure ones and down the line, there would be a couple of maybes. That’s because while I love reading, it’s simply not possible sometimes to read as much as I might want to. So, without further ado, here are all the books I hope/want to finish before the year ends!
To Sleep in a Sea of Stars by Christopher Paolini
I am currently reading this and I am pretty sure, I can finish this before the middle of the month hits me in the face. So yay for that!
The Farseer trilogy by Robin Hobb
I have just started my re-read of this trilogy in order to get deeper into the Realm of Elderlings because I just want to be really immersed in the world, you see? So I added these three books to my to-be-read-before-the-year-ends list. I know. I am just full of sensible decisions.
The Poppy War trilogy by R. F. Kuang
Haha. Hahaha. I know. I am just setting myself up to a disappointment. This whole series is so hyped up and well received by readers all over the world and I simply can’t wait to read them all before the year ends. I have pre-ordered The Burning God so that should be arriving somewhere around November end or early December. I am hoping that I might finish the whole series before the middle of December hits. Let’s see how that goes. This is ridiculously ambitious of me and I just don’t know how I will manage this.
Now, we come to the maybe of the list. These books are just there in case I finish the above books by some heavenly miracle. What am I even thinking right now? What’s wrong with me?
Oh, well, here we go!
The Great Hunt by Robert Jordan
Yes. I know. I gave up on this but I also have hopes that I might be able to pick it up again and soon. Let’s see how I do with the other books and if I am in the mood to read it after the big tbr is done with.
The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson
I know, ok? I know. There’s no way I can finish The Great Hunt and this one. So, it is at the very bottom of the list. I however do want to read the Stormlight Archive badly. So if I don’t end up reading it in December, you can bet your money that I will be starting it in January. I am also going to order Oathbringer and Rhythm of War as soon as I am done with The Way of Kings because I have faith in Sanderson to make me fall in love with this series as much as I love his other books.
And that’s it for my immediate tbr before the year ends. It’s ambitious as hell and I have no faith in myself at the moment to believe that I could actually read this much but! It’s always good to make plans and see if you can follow through them. What about you? Any books or series you have your eyes on? Some books you want to read before the year ends?
