I really want to start the year off by making a solid dent in my 2017 reading goals, so I’m hoping to spend a lot of time curled up in my favourite chair, with a cup of tea and my kindle.
In order to satisfy my ever changing reading moods, I’ve chosen books from quite a few different genres to cover every eventuality.
A lot of these titles are books that have been on my TBR shelf for an age and I’m only getting to now – but we’ll see how it actually pans out in real life. As you may notice in my December Wrap-Up, I wasn’t particularly good at sticking to my TBR at the end of 2016.
I could spend a lot of time rambling, but I know you’re all here for the books so I’ll let them take centre stage.
I could be wrong, I went through a phase of adding contemporaries to my TBR, but I think this is a book about a girl suffering from OCD. It’s gotten stupidly high ratings on Goodreads and it’s just missed the cut for several previous months of TBR’s, but this month it’s finally here!
I bought this as an ebook around the time the movie was released, but just never got around to reading it. I’ve been in the mood for a good dystopian lately, so I thought I’d give this one a shot. All I know about it is that it takes place in a High-Rise building (hence the title) and that there are different factions within the floors – I can’t really tell you more than that, unfortunately.
I can tell you even less about this book! I think I added this book after hearing rave reviews from BooksbyLala. If I remember correctly, it’s a contemporary with some supernatural elements, but don’t quote me on that!
I know nothing except that it’s being turned into a movie and I think I’d like to see it.
I really want to try and finish some series in 2017, and I believe this is the last instalment in The Lone City series (the first book was The Jewel). Neither of the previous instalments were that enthralling, but I would like to complete the series.
I haven’t read this in so long, and I just have a craving for some Bronte – what more is there to say?
On top of this, I have a lot of reading to do for school. I have decided that I won’t be doing a detailed review of those novels as I fear I may say something in the post and plagiarise myself in essays! But have no fear, I have a cheeky series up my sleeve so you’ll hear a little something from me about them!
How’re you starting off your reading in 2017? Any interesting picks?
