When I started this blog, I knew I wanted to join in the Book Tag fun so it seems appropriate that my very first book tag would be one about New Year resolutions. I found this book tag on ZeZee With Books.

Books by Alix E. Harrow

I’ve often found myself drawn to books by their covers, and these works by Alix E. Harrow are no exception. As someone who enjoys discovering new authors and exploring different genres, I can’t wait to dive into Harrow’s enchanting worlds and see what wonders await between the pages.

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern has been on my radar for quite some time now. As a lover of fantastical tales and immersive storytelling, I’m eager to lose myself in the enchanting world of The Night Circus and experience its wonders firsthand.

Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens

Despite having an insatiable appetite for reading as a child, the only Dickens book I read was Great Expectations, and I believe it’s high time I finally delved into this classic.

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women holds a special place in my heart. It’s a book that I first read in my younger years, swept away by the lives and adventures of the March sisters. As I’ve grown older, I’ve come to appreciate the timeless themes of family, love, and resilience that permeate its pages. With each rereading, I discover new layers of depth and meaning, making it a story that I’m always eager to return to, like catching up with old friends after a long absence.

A book you’ve had for ages and want to read

The Godfather by Mario Puzo

The Godfather by Mario Puzo has been sitting on my bookshelf for far too long, patiently waiting for its moment to shine. Its iconic status in both literature and pop culture is undeniable, yet for some reason, I’ve never quite gotten around to reading it. I’ve also never watched the movie so that might be the next thing I do after reading this classic.

A big book you’d like to read

Samantha Shannon’s The Priory of the Orange Tree and
A Day of Fallen Night

To be honest, the first time I saw these hefty tomes in person, I found them quite intimidating. However, I’m excited to get stuck into the story and the fantastical worldbuilding.

Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman

I watched the Practical Magic movies as a child when I was extremely interested in witches and it left a lasting impression on me with its blend of magic, family, and romance. I only recently found out that it was also a book! This led me on a search for Alice Hoffman and I came across one of her short stories which I adored. That convinced me that I had to read the rest of her work and Practical Magic is first on my list.

The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold

The Lovely Bones has been sitting on my shelf since Christmas of 2022. Its premise—a young girl narrating her own murder from the afterlife—promises a poignant exploration of grief, loss, and the enduring power of love. The subject matter may be heavy but I guess I’m overdue for a good cry.

Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan

I had heard of the Wheel of Time series for a long time but I never got around to reading any of it. However, when the series launched on Amazon Prime Video, I was hooked. I looked up the books and my eyes almost popped when I saw how many there were! I’m going to be occupied for a very long time.

Dark Carpathians by Christine Feehan

I first read a Dark Carpathian novel when I was in high school and I immediately became obsessed with it. However, back then, my only source of books was the community library and it never quite had a complete series of any book. But now, I have all the novels in e-book format and I am eager to start my Christine Feehan Dark series marathon.

Do you set reading goals? If so, how many books do you want to read in 2024?

Yes. I set a reading goal every year but do I actually achieve it? Not really. Maybe this is the year that changes.

That’s it for me.

Consider yourself tagged you’d like to do it too.
