What’s on My Bookshelf? January 2017

door-881588_1920.jpgLast year(2016) I posted what’s on my bookshelf and it was on my electronic bookshelf at the time, however I had no intentions of finishing said books during 2016. Yes, I know, I’m a book hoarder. I need to collect everything for future reading, I just need to, else I’ll feel incomplete. I currently feel incomplete as I don’t have the first book of the Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard series yet, but soon that shall be rectified.

These are the books I currently have lined up on iBooks. There are hundreds on my kindle app but I won’t count the here as I read those with a different agility and can knock off on average like three a week with breaks in between. Some of these books are older ones that I wish to revisit or  I just have not read yet.

I am currently reading: Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles) by Marissa Meyer. It’s the second installment of this series. I read the first one sometime last year but since then I’ve been reading a lot of dark/historical romance on kindle. This series is a futuristic take on some of our most popular fairy tales with a sci-fi spin on it. Cinder was based on Cinderella of course and Scarlet is based on Red Riding Hood. I will review the entire series when I have completed it. Also on my to be read list is the third and fourth installment of this series: Cress and Winter.

The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkien. This one I think is self-explanatory as we have all heard of it. I will however post a review when I’m finished. I read this almost fifteen years ago and I feel like it’s high-time I reread it.

The Stand by Stephen King. A post-apocalyptical novel where most of the human population dies due to the release of a biological weapon.

The Handmaiden’s Tale by Margaret Atwood. A young woman is forced to become a handmaiden for a couple that can’t bear a child. Soon after she is lured into ellicit affairs. I’m a little iffy about the ending as I do have an idea that it might be an unclear one but we’ll see.

Indignation by Philip Roth. I don’t know much about this book. I saw the trailer for the movie last year and felt like I needed to read the book before I watch the movie. There’s a spark that happens when based on a book flashes on screen. I think this is about a young Jewish college student but that’s about all I know.

The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon. While looking at other people’s to be read lists on Youtube, I saw this one come up twice. I believe this one is a romance between two young people that’s struggling in their own lives. The girl’s parents are to be deported and the boy’s family is pressuring him to become a doctor. Based on the reviews for this book, I’m pretty excited about this one.

Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard Book 1: The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan. A fantasy novel based on Norse Mythology, told in first person by Magnus Chase, a sixteen year old homeless orphan. I will be reviewing this book in depth after reading.

Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard Book 2: The Hammer of Thor by Rick Riordan. A fantasy novel based on Norse Mythology, told in first person by Magnus Chase, a sixteen year old homeless orphan. I will be reviewing this book in depth after reading.

Lives of the Mayfair Witches by Anne Rice: The Witching Hour, Taltos and Lasher. About a family of witches and a spirit that had guided their fortunes for generations.
