T5T ! 5 BOOKS ON MY 2018 BUCKET LIST

Hi guys and welcome to the second post of top 5 Tuesday, a tag hosted by the lovely Shanah, over at thebionicbookworm.  Today, I’ll be talking about…

5 books I REALLY want to read before 2018 is up. 

So there are alot of books I want to read but of course, i want to read some more than others so I decided to pick 5 books I both really want to read, and books that I think I WILL read.

PRINCE OF THORNS – MARK LAWRENCE
I think when I’m in the mood for something dark & gritty, I’ll pick this up for a few reasons. Last year, RED SISTER was one of my favourite reads with beautiful world building & realistic characters. From the moment I read that? I heard about the unlikable Jorg from Prince of thorns and just KNEW one day I would read about him, then I reviewed a collection of short stories from jorgs books, and really found myself enjoying his character & thus I can’t wait to finally pick up his book.

TURTLES ALL THE WAY DOWN – JOHN GREEN
I’ve never read a john green book. I’m not normally a fan of books that are meant to break your heart and stuff, so I never picked up one of his because I either felt like that would happen, or it just didn’t interest me. But the positive reviews for this novel, and it’s subject matter really intrigued me so I picked it up & can’t wait to give him a go.

THE RETRIBUTION OF MARA DYER – MICHELLE HODKIN
I have adored the first two books in this series, going months in between reading each one and then devouring the book in a matter of hours and I think it’s about time I read the conclusion to this amazing trilogy so I can finally pick up the new Noah Shaw book

GEMINA – AMIE KAUFMAN & JAY KRISTOFF
I read & adored Illuminae in 2017 and I really want to follow that up by reading & adoring Gemina in 2018 so I can read Obsidio as soon as it comes out & finally get to see what happens to some of my favourite characters.

THE BOOK THEIF – MARKUS ZUSACK 
I am one of those people who watched the movie and didn’t read the book and what a shame that was because I adored the movie, I found it heart breaking & beautiful so I think it’s time I finally pick up the novel & get my heart shattered again

So that’s it, 5 books I really want to read before 2018 is out, I’m hoping that by the time 2018 ends, I won’t be sitting here looking at this post and wincing because, oops I didn’t even pick up a single book! Well, I can only cross my fingers and hope that doesn’t happen

What are some books you really want to read in 2018? tell me in the comments below
until next time,
Sarah

One thought on “T5T ! 5 BOOKS ON MY 2018 BUCKET LIST

  1. Such a great list! The Book Thief is probably in my top 5 all time favourite books, but it was a little hard to get into. The narrator is entirely different from anything I’ve ever read before. But once the story gets going it will all fall into place. Gemina is even better than Illuminae in my opinion so I hope you love it! And Turtles All The Way Down is on my immediate TBR as well. I hope you love each and every one of these!
    Thanks for participating 🙂
