With the holidays upon us and only 7 weeks left in the year, I’ve been thinking about what I would like to read and attempting to complete my Goodreads goal. Below are some of the books I’m most excited to read over the next seven weeks.
Becoming by Michelle Obama
I’m incredibly excited for this book to come out next week. I’ve been impatiently waiting since the cover reveal in May. I’m hoping for not only great perspective of what the White House was like for her, living through the countless threats on her life and the lives of her family, but also what it was like to persevere through that and to still be thankful and gracious. Michelle has always been more than Barack Obama’s wife, and I can’t wait to read about her.
Sawkill Girls by Claire LeGrand
Sawkill Girls follows three girls – Marion, Zoey, and Val – as their stories come together on the island of Sawkill Rock which is marked by the legend of a great evil that has been taking girls for decades.
That short bit is all I know about this book and all I want to know. When I initially heard about the Sawkill Girls, I was intrigued by the synopsis, but I knew the intrigue would fade the more I heard about it. I’ve avoided reading wrap ups, bookstagram posts, and more to avoid being spoiled about this book. I cannot wait to dive in!
Vicious by V.E. Schwab
V.E. Schwab is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. I just finished the Shades of Magic series and I was floored. The world building, the characters, the suspense – it was everything I could hope for and more. When I tell people it’s the only V.E. Schwab I’ve read, I’m immediately bombarded with “You haven’t read Vicious yet?!” and I sheepishly say no. I’m the type of person that hates cliffhangers. I enjoy a good cliffhanger if I can pick up the next book immediately and I won’t take the risk if I can’t. So with the recent release of Vengeful, I’ve decided to FINALLY read Vicious this fall.
Alright, those are my most anticipated reads through the end of the year. I would love to hear what books you’re excited to read in the comments.
