As all book bloggers will tell you, trying to get through your TBR pile is a never-ending struggle. I’m constantly adding more to the list at a much quicker pace than actually getting through them, which means my pile of unread books remains sky high.
However, with just ten weeks left of 2019 (where has this year gone?), there’s definitely a few that I’m determined to get stuck into. I thought I’d compile them into a list on my blog, which will hopefully encourage me to get through them.
Two Can Keep a Secret – Karen McManus
I’ve recently finished McManus’ debut, One of Us is Lying and I absolutely loved it (read my review here.) I’ve now moved onto her second novel, Two Can Keep a Secret, and I’m thoroughly enjoying that also. I haven’t managed to get fully stuck into it yet because I was also reading The Secret Garden, but my plan is to devour it in one sitting this weekend.
The Handmaid’s Tale – Margaret Atwood
I’m planning this as my first re-read of 2019, mainly because I read it such a long time ago and I want to refresh my memory before I tackle The Testaments. I’ve also got back into the TV show recently, which has given me the bug to revisit the epic book.
The Testaments – Margaret Atwood
Moving nicely on from The Handmaid’s Tale, I can’t wait to read The Testaments, one of the most anticipated and widely praised books of the year. I’m so surprised I haven’t read this sooner, but that just shows how big my TBR pile is right now!
Everything Everything – Nicola Yoon
I received this in a book-swap with my friend in September. She massively raved about it and couldn’t recommend it highly enough, so I’m determined to get around to it in the next few weeks. There’s a lot of mixed reviews on Goodreads, which I actually find really intriguing. I’m excited to give it a go and share my opinions on it.
The Boy Who Followed His Father into Auschwitz – Jeremy Dronfield
I bought this book for my holiday in September but never got around to reading it. I always take too many books away with me because I like to have a decent choice depending on my mood. I’m a huge fan of historical fiction and specialised in German history during the last year of my degree, so this book sounds right up my street.
My 2019 reading challenge currently stands at 43/52, so I definitely need to power through these books. Here’s hoping I can get to target before 31 December!
