Time for another Top Five Tuesday (a meme hosted by BionicBookWorm). It’s a new year now (I still can’t believe it, can you?) so this week’s theme is perfect (as they all are, to be honest). So here’s my list of books I need to read in 2019!
- Persuasion by Jane Austen
Okay be kidding here a little, because I literally have to read this book for my English Lit course, together with Pride and Prejudice. That’s not to say I don’t want to read them. I’ve never read Persuasion (although it’s been on my TBR for forever) and I’m very excited about it.
- Gulliver’s Travels by Jonathan Swift
Yes, another one I literally have to read for school! (Okay I’ll stop after this one 😛 I will not list all the set texts I have to read). But it’s also been on my TBR ever since my mom gave me a super cute Everyman’s Children’s Library copy of this classic, so I’m curious to see what it’s all about.
- Famous in a Small Town by Emma Mills
This book will release soon, and I’m really super excited about it! Emma Mills is since this year when I read all her books one of my favorite contemporary YA novelists, and I’m super excited for her next book!
- Once Upon a River by Diane Setterfield
I only recently discovered this book when someone I follow posted a review and it seems just so amazing and right up my alley. Historical fiction/magical realism is always a good combination in my book.
- Book Love by Debbie Tung
I love Tung’s work and have followed her on social media for a long while now, so I’m super excited about her new collection of journal comics which will be released soon!
What are some books you need (or just really, really want to) read in 2019? Let me know in the comments!
