If you read my 2016 New Year & Blogging Goals post; you'll know that one of them is to read 26 books this year, which gives me two weeks per book. I have a large to be read list which has collected even more new books for me to read, so i thought I'd share with you the first seven books I'm hoping to read.
Harry Potter & The Chamber of Secrets by J.K Rowling
I did actually feature this in my Autumn TBR List but i didn't actually get round to it. I'm slowly re-reading the series as it's been so long since i last read them, and this is the second instalment. It's follows Harry Potter, a young wizard in his second year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft & Wizardry.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
I'm really looking to reading this as i really enjoyed the film and more often than not the book is always better. It's set in Nazi Germany and is narrated by death. It follows a young girl named Liesel learns to read with the help of her foster father, she can't resist books, stealing them and sharing them with her neighbours during the bombing raids. Ever since reading The Diary of Anne Frank, I've quite enjoy reading and learning about World War 2 so i feel like I'm going to enjoy this book. The film version had me hooked and honestly made me sob so I'm intrigued to see how this goes.
Lola & The Boy Next Door by Stephenie Perkins
The is the follow up to Anna & the French Kiss; i adored this book so naturally i wanted to read the rest in the series too. I don't really know what to expect with this book but I'm looking forward to reading it because i honestly couldn't put down the first one. This time around it follows Lola, a fashionista who's past returns and she has to decide whether to face up to it or not. I have no doubt that this is going to be cheesy and predictable but i really enjoyed the ways it's written so i have no doubt that I'm going to enjoy it.
Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen
It's no secret how much i enjoy Sarah Dessen books, it's a slight guilty pleasure as I'm aware they are definitely aimed at a much younger audience but i thoroughly enjoy them. Sydney's brother has always been the star of the family but when a shock accident lands him in jail, it leaves Sydney adrift - searching for her place in the world and in her family. I don't know what to expect with this one, i don't feel like the story sounds as gripping as her others but I'm still going to give it a read and see what it's like.
A Girl's Best Friend by Lindsey Kelk
Over the past two years; Lindsey Kelk has fast become one of my favourite authors - her writing style is brilliant, it's fun, witty and hilarious. This is the third book in the Girls Series and i can't wait to read it and find out what Tess gets up to next. Lindsey's books are the ultimate rom-com style books; girly, dramatic and take you on an emotional rollercoaster.
Cinder by Marissa Meyer
I've heard so many amazing reviews about this series that it made me really curious. Cinder is a cyborg in New Beijing, abused by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister's illnesses. Think Cinderella with a very weird twist to the tale. It's definitely not the usual kind of book I'd go for but I'm very intrigued and i think it sounds really interesting so we shall see how i get on with that one.
Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler
I've been wanting to read this book for ages (I'm talking years) and my sister randomly found a copy in a charity shop so I'm finally getting round to read it. My sister read it and didn't enjoy it much which does concern me a little but it's apparently similar style book to those of Sarah Dessen's so no doubt i will enjoy it. Twenty Days in Zanzibar is the perfect opportunity to have a summer fling, and if they meet one boy everyday then Frankie believes there's a pretty good chance Anna will find her summer romance.
So those are the books I'm hoping to read. I'm aware that my taste in books is slightly weird, i enjoy both adult books and young adult books - most of which are always girly and romance based.
