It’s not long now till I head back up to Chester to start my third and final year of university! It’s scary how fast these past two years have gone and it’s even scarier looking at my workload for my final year. So this means that I sadly won’t have much time to read books that I want to read as I’ll be too busy reading set texts and books for my dissertation. I still have about a month before I go back so it’s time for some serious reading and I’m even considering of doing a 24-hour read-a-thon! There are so many books that I still want to read but I’m going to have to limit myself and set a realistic target, so here are the books I want to read before I got back to university!
Torch Against The Night by Sabaa Tahir – I read the first book in this series when I was on holiday (expect a review soon) and I fell utterly in love with it, so naturally, I had to jump on Amazon and order the next book. The first book left us on such a cliff-hanger and the storyline for the next book is right up my street. If I’m going to read anything before I go back then its definitely this book and I can’t recommend it enough!
They Both Die in the End by Adam Silvera – I’ve started reading this book but it’s one of those books which I can only read at certain times as its main focus is on death and how short life really is, a topic which I’ve always struggled to digest. I wasn’t expecting this book to hit me this hard and I’m finding it difficult to find the motivation to carry on reading it, but I’m so intrigued by this storyline that I need to finish it. This is my first Adam Silvera book and from just 100 pages I’m really enjoying his emotional and meaningful writing style.
Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody – I read Foody’s Daughter on the Burning City and absolutely loved all her characters and the magical world and storyline she had created so when I heard she’d released a new book I was eager to give it a read. To make things worse my sister is currently reading it and keeps teasing me about the plot by having mini-freakouts!
Ice Like Fire by Sara Raasch – Another author whose first book I’ve read and loved. My aim is to finish this series by the end of the year and although I can’t remember much about the plot I do remember enjoying it. Sara Raasch has also released a new book called These Rebel Waves which I’m buzzing for and is something right up my street so as soon as I finish this series I’m going to move on to her new one.
Scythe by Neal Shusterman – I’ve only heard good things about this series and I hope that this book gets me out of my current reading slump! If you’ve read this book, I’d love to hear your thoughts on it so please leave a comment below.
