Books I Will Definitely Read This Year

So, I mentioned in my New Year’s post that I will get around to making a post about books I want to read this year when I got home Aussie. Well, here it is!

There are a lot of sequels coming out this year for popular books, so I’m hoping to get to these books before the next one comes out.

Then there are those stand-alone books that everyone has been talking about, but I still haven’t read yet.

Unbound (Unwind Dystology)

A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses #2) by Sarah J. Maas (coming May 3rd 2016)
Throne of Glass #5 by Sarah J. Maas (coming September 6th 2016)

That’s just a fraction of the books on my TBR >.< However, these are the books that I’m vowing to definitely read this year.
How many of these books have you read, and how many are you determined to read this year?

    There are so many books on this list that I haven’t read! A monster calls, Miss Peregrine’s home and Extraordinary means are first on my list. So excited for A Darker Shade 2. I actually enjoyed book one, which surprised me. I hope you like it too.

    This list has so many books that I need to read as well, especially Illuminae and The 5th Wave. I always say I’ll read the book before seeing the movie, and I’m trying to do that with 5th Wave.

    Many of those books on my TBR as well. I’m exceptionally excited about “A Torch Against the Night,” ToG 6, and “Lady Midnight.” 🙂
