Books I Want To Read Before The End of the Year

Hello everyone and welcome to day 5 of a Very Posty December… less than three weeks until Christmas!!! I’m taking a break from GOT7 week today to bring you a bookish post about the books I want to read before the end of the year (obviously, you read the title).

Woman at Point Zero is the book I need to finish by tomorrow for school, so yes, I hope that I have finished this one by the end of the year šŸ˜€ It tells the story of a woman sentenced to die during the space of a night. 

Perfume is a book I have been reading for quite some time and I hate having unfinished books when a new year starts, so hopefully I can finish this one when I finally have some time off of school! It’s about a boy with a wicked sense of smell. 

Selected Poems is a selection of poems by T.S. Eliot, including The Wasteland, which I had to read for school. As such I have partially read this book, but I want to finish reading the other poems before the end of the year. 

On a slightly lighter note, I’m in the middle of reading Deborah Harkness’ All Souls Trilogy, so I would like to finish that before the end of the year as well. I’m currently part way through the second book. The series follows a woman, Diana, who is a witch, but has been suppressing her powers, and her forbidden romance with the vampire Matthew. 

So what books do you want to read before the end of the year? Happy reading, Keira x. 

4 Books I Want to Read Before Summer Ends

Hello everyone! Today’s post will be really short. I just wanted to share with you the four books I really want to finish before the end of summer (partially to hold myself accountable)!


  • KƶniginĀ der Finsternis von Sarah J MaasĀ is the fourth book in theĀ Throne of GlassĀ series. I’ve read all of the released books in the series multiple times, but I have started to reread this one in German to help me practice, so I would like to finish it. I’m currently only on page 14 so there’s still a long way to go! If you don’t know what this series about, it’s a YA/NA fantasy series and it’sĀ amazing. Check out the first book in the series.Ā 
  • Perfume by Patrick SĆ¼skindĀ is another book that I started reading a while ago. I’m on page 84 and so far it’s slightly disturbing.Ā Check it out.Ā 
  • See You in the Cosmos by Jack ChengĀ is a middle grade contemporary novel about a boy who is recording a video to send into space, documenting what life on Earth is like. It seems like a really interesting and original book, so I’m looking forward to reading it.Ā Check it out.
  • The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky ChambersĀ looks to be a promising Sci-Fi book in that it actually has to do with space (I think). Lots of people sing it’s praise, so I hope I enjoy it as much as everyone else seems to.Ā Check it out.

And that’s it! I did say it would be a short one, after all.
