A new year means a new list of books to read. This year one of my goals is to expand my horizons on the type of books I read. Last year I incorporated more classic novels into my reading, something I want to continue this year, and with many of my series already having ended I am at a loss for reading content. I read a lot of fantasy novels and have ventured more into the YA reading section for romance and adventure. For 2019 I am thinking of venturing into historical based novels. Though I have yet to look into that genre.
Now being a few weeks into January I have compiled a list of 7 books I for sure want to read this year!
Always and Forever Lara Jean by Jenny Han (Final Installment of the Trilogy)
With the release of the Netflix original adaption of book 1 “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” last year, I finally got around to reading the first two books over winter break. I had wanted to see the movie but refused to watch it until I had read the first book. The books are always better but I will say they did a good job with the movie and I enjoyed it. After reading the second one I know I have to finish the series and see if book 3 can top my love for the sequel.
Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt
This is a book I read sometime in middle school as one of our required reading. I clearly remember talking to one of my friends after we finished it about how we cried a lot once we finished it. I listened to the musical soundtrack sometime last year and fell in love. It has been over 6 years since then and because I can’t clearly recite everything that happened in this book I want to reread it.
The Wind in the Willows by Madeline Miller
One of my teacher’s brought up this book last semester and it intrigued me because I had heard about it but never looked into it. So now it is on my list.
The Tyrants Tomb by Rick Riordan (Fourth Installment of Trials of Apollo)
I discussed the third book in my last book post and I am ready for this one. Even though the release date isn’t until Fall 2019… After the last book’s ending and a million videos sent to my friend of me freaking out, I need to know what happens next. I also need the Haiku chapter titles that never fail to disappoint.
Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
After reading Pride and Prejudice I want to make my way through the rest of Austen’s novels, and this seemed like the perfect one to read next.
Summer Hours at the Robber’s Library by Sue Halpern
I stumbled across this book during one of my Barnes and Noble browsing days and immediately added the title to my list of books to read. I haven’t had a chance to read it so I am determined to do so this year.
The Princess Bride by William Goldman
I have loved the movie since the first time my mom showed it to me. Back then I didn’t actually know there was a book. After never getting around to meeting it I have deemed 2019 the year it happens.

I loved The Wind In The Willows! Read this in 4th grade, but it is a GREAT story. How did I not read this to you? Hmmm?
