My Reading List

Since it’s the beginning of the year, I thought I’d share my fiction reading list with you guys. I know I’ll be adding to this but it’s a start. 🙂 Hopefully, I’ll have some time to write reviews on these later on this year.

“A good library will never be too neat, or too dusty, because somebody will always be in it, taking books off the shelves and staying up late reading them.”- Lemony Snicket, Horseradish



1.) Embers by Ronie Kendig



Haegan and Kaelyria Celahar are royal heirs of the Nine Kingdoms, but Haegan is physically crippled. What chance does he have against Poired Dyrth, the greatest enemy the kingdom has ever faced, who wields fire with a power none can match?


2.) A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas


When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin–one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.


3.) The Sword of Shannara: Original Shannara Trilogy by Terry Brooks


The Four Lands are in ruins after the wars of the ancient Evil, and mankind must compete with gnomes, trolls, dwarfs, and elves for survival. In peaceful Shady Vale, half-elfin Shea Ohmsford knows only happiness – until the Druid Allanon comes to reveal that the supposedly dead Warlock Lord is plotting to destroy the world.


4.) Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling


Harry Potter has no idea how famous he is. That’s because he’s being raised by his miserable aunt and uncle who are terrified Harry will learn that he’s really a wizard, just as his parents were. But everything changes when Harry is summoned to attend an infamous school for wizards, and he begins to discover some clues about his illustrious birthright.


5.) Emissary by Thomas Locke


Hyam has always shown a remarkable ability to master languages, even those left unspoken for a thousand years. But now the shadow of suspicion that was cast upon him as a child prodigy at Long Hall is lengthening, and he must keep his identity hidden–or face annihilation.


6.) Winter by Marissa Meyer


Princess Winter is admired by the Lunar people for her grace and kindness, and despite the scars that mar her face, her beauty is said to be even more breathtaking than that of her stepmother, Queen Levana.

Winter despises her stepmother, and knows Levana won’t approve of her feelings for her childhood friend–the handsome palace guard, Jacin. But Winter isn’t as weak as Levana believes her to be and she’s been undermining her stepmother’s wishes for years. Together with the cyborg mechanic, Cinder, and her allies, Winter might even have the power to launch a revolution and win a war that’s been raging for far too long.



7.) Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard


Mare Barrow’s world is divided by blood—those with common, Red blood serve the Silver- blooded elite, who are gifted with superhuman abilities. Mare is a Red, scraping by as a thief in a poor, rural village, until a twist of fate throws her in front of the Silver court. Before the king, princes, and all the nobles, she discovers she has an ability of her own.

To cover up this impossibility, the king forces her to play the role of a lost Silver princess and betroths her to one of his own sons. As Mare is drawn further into the Silver world, she risks everything and uses her new position to help the Scarlet Guard—a growing Red rebellion—even as her heart tugs her in an impossible direction. One wrong move can lead to her death, but in the dangerous game she plays, the only certainty is betrayal.


What’s on your reading list this year? 🙂

  1. Your list looks a lot like mine! I’m reading Revolutionary right now and then it’s on to Red Queen. 😊

  2. Don’t you love the new year when there’s heaps of book possibilities stretched before you? This is a great list 🙂 I have a book challenge I’m doing with my daughter, but we’re not sure of any titles yet except ‘Cinder’ as the first one. I read ‘Winter’ not realising it was part of a series..oops! Loved it though! What a great introduction to Marissa Meyer!

    • That’s so neat! My sister and I are trying to coordinate some of our reading this year. Marissa Meyer is just fantastic, isn’t she? I can’t wait to start ‘Winter.’ Here’s to heaps of book possibilities!
