I took some time to look back at our published reading list and took note of the books I have yet to get to.
With those in mind, I put together an end of year reading list. My goal is to absolutely finish these five books before the start of 2018. Anything else I’d consider a bonus (I told you I’m reading slow this year.)
Dark Matter, Blake Crouch
In this world he’s woken up to, Jason’s life is not the one he knows. His wife is not his wife. His son was never born. And Jason is not an ordinary college physics professor, but a celebrated genius who has achieved something remarkable. Something impossible.
Dreams of Gods & Monsters, Laini Taylor
When the brutal angel emperor brings his army to the human world, Karou and Akiva are finally reunited – not in love, but in a tentative alliance against their common enemy.
The Rook, Daniel O’Malley
“The body you are wearing used to be mine.” So begins the letter Myfanwy Thomas is holding when she awakes in a London park surrounded by bodies all wearing latex gloves. She soon learns that she is a Rook, a high-ranking member of a secret organization called the Chequy.
This Savage Song, Victoria Schwab
Kate Harker and August Flynn are the heirs to a divided city—a city where the violence has begun to breed actual monsters. All Kate wants is to be as ruthless as her father, who lets the monsters roam free and makes the humans pay for his protection. All August wants is to be human, as good-hearted as his own father, to play a bigger role in protecting the innocent—but he’s one of the monsters.
Into The Water, Paula Hawkins
In the last days before her death, Nel called her sister. Jules didn’t pick up the phone, ignoring her plea for help. Now Nel is dead. They say she jumped. And Jules has been dragged back to the one place she hoped she had escaped for good, to care for the teenage girl her sister left behind.
What book do you hope to get to before the end of the year?
