Let me show you some books I definitely need to get to in 2020!

#1 – The Witcher series by Andrzej Sapkowski

After I binged the show (hello my new favorite ship Geralt x Jaskier) and finished the first game, I decided to give the books a shot as well. The show was very confusing in terms of timelines, so I figured the novels should help me figure things out. There’s only eight of them, so why not?

#2 – Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

I’ve wanted to read this book for ages but somehow never had time. Well, it’s on my e-reader now, so fingers crossed!

Today, I’ll share some of the books I didn’t get to in 2019. My want-to-read list on Goodreads currently holds 233 books, so it wasn’t easy to choose!

#1 Serpent & Dove by Shelby Mahurin 

I have quite a few novels from book subscription boxes that I just didn’t have the time for yet. Serpent & Dove is one of them. Everybody was so excited about it and seemed to love the book, so I’ll make sure to put it on top of my pile for 2020.

Obviously, Frankenstein is a classic, so it has been on my radar for a long time. In October I watched one of the many adaptations and got even more curious about the book. Hopefully, I around reading it in 2020 so I can do a book vs. movie post!

This week I’ll talk about some pretty famous authors I always wanted to check out but for some reason or other haven’t had the chance to do so yet!

#1 Cassandra Clare

This year I finally managed to catch up with most of the famous young adult writers. I read Sarah J. Maas, Leigh Bardugo, Holly Black. But one big name is still missing: Cassandra Clare. Her books sound fascinating, but there are so many, I was always a little intimidated to get started.

#2 Seanan McGuire

I recently started following Seanan McGuire on tumblr (she has a great sense of humor!), not knowing who she is or what she does. By now I realized that she’s a talented author and her book Middlegame immediately went on my TBR pile.
