The Top 10 books I absolutely NEED to read before the end of 2016 comes around


All year, I’ve had a list of books that I ABSOLUTELY NEED TO GET TO. You know the sorts. The ones with loads of hype AND actually sound amazing. The ones that have been sat on your shelves waiting for months. The ones that have been on every TBR possible and yet still haven’t been read.


Because surely my knack for failing TBRs will leave me this time and actually let me read all the books listed…right? 

Now, this list is just from the books I own. Not the books I intend to buy. If they were on the list too, you’d be reading this list until George RR Martin decides to publish his next book (come on MR Martin – we’re waiting!!).

So here are the top 10 books I absolutely need to read before the end of 2016!

The Mini-Missions That Have Suddenly Taken Over My Summer TBR

TBR mini missions

So about a month ago, I wrote a blog post about my summer TBR.

I don’t usually make TBR’s because I don’t stick to them. Well surprise surprise, there’s some changes to be made to mine already.


The other post still stands though. I’m still trying to follow the original TBR. But I’ve come up with some small “goals” to achieve, which I’m calling mini-missions, because that somehow sounds more motivating.

Probably because I want to live in a fantasy story and giving myself missions makes it sounds that little bit more epic.

So here are the mini-missions that have changed my TBR already!

That Huge Build Up Of Books That I Hope To Read This Summer

summer TBR

You know when you sort of keep buying books and you really want to read them all but you don’t know when that’ll happen so you keep planning to read them soon and then you end up in a huge tangle of “oh my goodness what do I read now?!?”

Well, that’s basically what this post is.

I suppose this is a TBR, since I’m actually planning on reading these.

But these books are the books I hope to read this summer – well, all the books that I OWN that I plan to read. No doubt I’ll end up buying more. And obviously I’ll be reading more than just these books.

This was originally going to be a Top 10 post, but …well…there’s more than ten 😀

But anyway, I’m rambling.

Here are the books I own that I hope to read this Summer!

My “Books To Buy One Day” List

books to buy

Hello bookworms! Hope you’re all having a good day 🙂

Today’s post idea is a bit random.

Basically, I have this list written down in my notebook of all the books I plan on buying one day in the future. Whether that be soon, or in a year’s time (if I still want it then). And when I get one of them, I highlight it to cross it off.

So this post…is pretty much just that list!

I wasn’t sure whether this would be interesting or not, but I did a poll on twitter asking whether people would be interested, and most voted Yes. Also I figured this would be interesting to look back on at the end of the year to see how many I managed to tick off.

So here it is!

I’ll split this into 3 sections: 

1. Books that are already released

2. Books that are not yet released

3. Books that are released, but I’m waiting for the paperback to be released.

So really, this is like a huge TBR/anticipated releases mash up post, right?

Also, since I updated this list at the start of February, some of these books I might already have – these books will be shown with a strike-through.

This is going to be quite a long post I think, so get comfy and enjoy!

The TBR book tag!

I was tagged by Marian – bookception21 – to do this tag, so thank you very much!

I’ve been trying to avoid writing up my next review and uploading it tonight, because I want to save it for tomorrow, so it was the perfect time for this to come along!

[Also – that’s a heads up. My review for Illuminae will be up tomorrow!]
