4 Books I Plan on Reading in 2019

Cheers to 2019

And so, 2018 has come and gone and we’ve started 2019.

I originally started this little goal last year; and I plan on carrying on with it this year – with only one difference – instead of a hefty 6 books, I’ve gone down to four. I just barely managed to get last year’s pile done – and am still reading the last one from last year’s pile. So I’m putting less pressure on myself this year.

Without further ado – let’s jump into the pile.

GoT: A Storm of Swords by George R.R. Martin:

What would this pile be without me carrying on with GoT?

I’m really excited to be carrying on with this series.

Over You by Lucy Diamond:

I’ve got to include something light in this pile. Last year’s pile had quite a few serious (heavy) books, with the rest being medium type reads. Need to switch it up this year.

The Little Friend by Donna Tartt:

This is another one that I’m really looking forward to.

Dark Places by Gillian Flynn:

I’m hoping that this one is going to satisfy the Psychological Thriller category.

Last Word:

Alright – I’ve read books from all of these authors.

George R.R. Martin – 3rd book

Lucy Diamond: 2nd book

Donna Tartt: 2nd book

Gillian Flynn: 3rd book

I have an idea of the sort of writing styles and genres I’m delving into here – the bottom two I’ve mentioned are most likely going to be books that have a lot of serious (heavy) reading in them; ‘Over You’ is going to be lighter reading, and ‘A Storm of Swords’ is going to be fantasy.

Even though I like reading your ‘heavier’ books because it gives me things to think about; I also need to break it up with some lighter reading otherwise I get a little too weighed down with the ‘thinking’ of the heavier books. ‘A Storm of Swords’ is most likely going to be a medium type read.

What will you be reading in 2019?
