Confession: This was difficult because A) I’m on a book buying ban and so (B) I have to limit myself to what I own. So here we go…
The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson
I recently read The Final Empire, and I loved it. It features a strong female lead (Vin), an interesting world where it “rains” ash, a weird magical system where people drink metals to use their powers, and of course, a love story. Seriously though, it’s brilliant.
The Hero of the Ages by Brandon Sanderson
See above. 🙂
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis
I’m making up for not experiencing this as a childhood by reading the series in chronological order. I recently read The Magician’s Nephew, and I can’t wait to continue with the series.
Catch-22 by Joseph Heller
This has been on my TBR for an incredibly long time, and I still haven’t gotten to it. All I know about it is that it is about war and it’s satirical, so it sounds like something I would really enjoy.
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon
I have so many friends who love this book, and I have yet to read it. It sounds like it’ll be interesting, especially because it’s about a boy who has autism. Hopefully it’ll be eye-opening and something new for me.
City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare
This series came out when I was in high school. As an adult, I plan on finishing it. Plus, it’s fun to read.
In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware
I bought this at Target to read last October, and I never got around to it. It sounds creepy, so who knows?
The Road by Cormac McCarthy
Another one I’ve been meaning to read for awhile now. It’s set in a post-apocalyptic society, and it focuses on a father-son traveling through America (I think). Honestly, I don’t know much about it, but I think I’ll like it.
The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss
I’ve mentioned it before, but I’m trying to read more grown up fantasy. I started with the first book in this series, The Name of the Wind, and I loved it. I can’t wait to read the next installment.
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran
I haven’t read a lot of books that deal with the aftermath of 9/11, but this one deals with a son who has lost his father. It sounds completely depressing, but it’s also something I wouldn’t normally read which is why I want to read it.
