10 Books I’d Read Before the End of 2017

Books I wanna read before the end of the year? This is the tough question I’ve been asking myself. You see, med school this semester is CRAZY – I’ve got 4 modules: neuroscience, pharmacology, gastrointestinal medicine and psychology/human development (see? it’s overloaded) – so I don’t even know if I’ll HAVE time to read books other than the ones I have to review. So yeah – I’ll let you know in this short post about the 10 books I’d read before the end of the year! (the books are listed in no particular order, and are subject to change but who knows haha!)

1. The Love Interest31145148

I got sent a copy of this from Pan MacMillan (thank you!!!), and I am so pumped to read it! It’s by an Australian (Brisbane born) author, so I just HAD to check this one out – its Goodreads synopsis can be found here! I am pretty sure it was a YA book choice for BOTM club two months back or something. But anyways, it’s about spies (handsome spies), competing for their “mission” and gosh, it’s a LGBTI novel too so I’m even MORE excited to get started with this one! I heard it’s super funny at the start too!

2. Roar29939048

This is a very hyped book, I’ve heard mainly good things about this fantasy novel – which is good news! It’s about a girl with without storm magic (I think), and I heard that it’s got some pretty cool badass world building and angsty warriors (I made that last part up, don’t trust me on this). Again, I got sent this from Pan MacMillan so look out for my review soon! Synopsis can be viewed here.

3. Strange the Dreamer

9781444788976

After being confronted by multiple individuals, I’ve decided to give Strange the Dreamer a go. However, I had an unfortunate mishap with Book Depository – my first copy had a printing fault (rip) and was missing all the pages prior to page 27 – I mean one cannot properly start a book without the first 26 pages right? Anyways, my replacement copy just arrived yesterday and I’ll do my best and push it up my TBR so I can finally experience the magic of this book!

2. YOUR FAVOURITE SEQUEL OF 2017

Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare. I mean the book gave me so many feels and actual heartache. I would have written a review but nah I couldn’t do it because it’ll just be me banging the keyboard incoherently with the caps lock on (the whole time).
