Books I’d Like to Read By The End of The Year

Hey guys!! So today I would like like to share with you books I’d like to read by the end of the year. I was thinking of including books that haven’t been released but I decided against that. These are mainly books I own that I’ve been wanting to read and just haven’t picked up yet. Only one of these books I don’t own. A lot of these are books I’ve been saying I’ll read but haven’t. Plus I was thinking to myself maybe making this post will help give me the push I need to read these. So let’s dive in and see what those books are!

Outsider X RD5B1. The Outsider By Stephen King 

Well this is the book that really inspired me to make this post. I recently saw that the trailer was out for this book. I haven’t watched it yet since I want to read this book without really knowing anything. I do know one of the characters from the Mr. Mercedes book series is in it and I can’t wait for that. I thankfully have some time before this show comes out but I’d like to be able to watch it right away. So I’m hoping to get to this soon. Maybe even this month after spookathon.

Capturing the Devil2. Capturing the Devil By Kerri Maniscalco

So I’m a big fan of The Jack the Ripper series. I have been anxiously awaiting for the end to come. Even though I am extremely sad to see this one go I can’t wait to see what happens. I did just get a part of these book spoiled. Then I found out they were promoting this spoiler before the book even came out so I guess not really a spoiler. This is something I would have rather wait to find out on my own. I did originally think this concept would be for book three but am excited to see it executed for the last book. I can’t wait to find out what happens.

Obsidio3. Obsidio By Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Well this is a book that has been haunting me this year. I have put it on my TBR multiple but haven’t picked it up yet. I am really not sure what the reasoning is. I really enjoy listening to these on audio. It’s such a fun experience. So I am not sure what the delay is. I would like to finish this one so I can move on and start the Aurora Rising series that these authors came out with this year. It seems to be similar vibes to this series.

Mrs. Fletcher4. Mrs. Fletcher By Tom Perrotta

So this book really wasn’t on my radar which I’m a bit surprised since I’ve loved Tom Perrotta’s books in the past. I really love his writing. I did see that they were turning this one into a show which isn’t a surprise since his other books have been turned into movies and television shows. So the trailer for the show ended up peaking my interest. This show does start next week. I currently don’t own the book but would like to get to it maybe next month and then check out the show.

Renegades5. Renegades By Marissa Meyer

I read the Cinder series by Marissa Meyer about two years ago and was very into it. Then I heard she was coming out with this superhero series which sounded really cool. Then I would hear Emma @ Emmmabooks going on about how much she loved it so I was sold. I ended up meeting Marissa Meyer last year at BookCon and got this book signed. Fast forward to today I still have not read it but I also own the second book in the series. So now book three is almost out and I still haven’t read any of the books. So I really would like to read this and see if this is a series I’d like to continue with.

Mr. Kiss and Tell6. Mr. Kiss and Tell By Rob Thomas & Jennifer Graham

I am a big Veronica Mars fan. I had read book one in the past. After reading book one I knew I had to pick up book two. I never ended up reading book two. Then they rebooted Veronica Mars this year and I decided to pick up book one again. I picked it up on audio. When I saw that Kristen Bell only narrated the one book and not the second book I was so bummed. So I decided to pick off reading book two. Well I’m getting to the point where I want to re-watch the show to watch the new episodes put out. So I feel I just need to suck it up and read this book.

What are some books you want to read before the end of the year? Have you guys read any of these books? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Yesss read Obsidio!!!! The audio is fantastic~ I’m sad the series is over but it was a great ride!

    And I read Renegades when it came out but it just didn’t click with me the way the Cinder series did so sadly I won’t be continuing it but I hope you like it more than I did! I know a lot of people love it~ its just too generic superheroes for me. But I do love the audiobook narrator – she’s fantastic.

    1. I can’t wait to get to it! I also have the little book they came out with for the Aurora Rising pre-order.

      Aw I am sorry to hear about Renegades. That’s such a shame. I deff will be picking up the audiobook book for it then.

  2. I have to laugh because I have this scheduled to go up next week. 😂 Great list of books to read before 2020 Reg. I feel like you will enjoy the Outsider. I have also been hearing such wonderful things about Capturing the Devil. I hope you are able to get to all of these before the end of the year!

    1. Oh I am so glad to hear it! These are both books I really want to get to just have been slacking with esp The Outsider. After hearing there is a trailer for the show it gave me a push.


  3. Mr Kiss and Tell is still really good, even if it’s not narrated by Bell. (Also, I can’t comment on the narration because I have a physical copy… but the story is good!)
    Maybe rewatch seasons 1-3, then reread book 1, read this, then watch the new season?!

    1. I recently reread book 1 then was going to read book 2 and got turned off by Bell not being the narrator but I think I’ll read it soon. My friend and I have been planning to rewatch the old seasons and the movie and then watch the show but our schedules haven’t lined up. I might have to do it without her.

  4. Obsidio is so good! I’m still so sad and sorry about you being spoiled on CtD. 😦 I feel awful that I helped spoil you on that! Speaking of that, though, I meant to text you earlier – would you want to put our Mara BR on hold and BR Capturing the Devil some time soon? Let me know if so! ♥ I’d be down for it whenever you are!

    1. I need to get to it asap. I have been putting it off for months and I regert it. I am hoping to put it on my TBR for next month and actually stick with it. Aw it’s no worries. It was bound to happen. I am so down for putting Mara BR on hold and doing a Capturing the Devil BR soon. That sounds perfect!!
