Top 5 Books I'm Excited to Read in 2021
In September 2020, I turned 22 years old. It seems like that as soon as I was no longer 21, I started to morph into my true adult self. I focused more on my career, poured myself generous glasses of wine, and started to read before bed.
As a kid, I was never a reader, but when I did read, I got lost in the stories I was most interested in. Today, my bookshelf is growing and I have a bunch of books I still haven't read that are stacked on that shelf - and yet, I keep buying more books!
I've grown to love reading books about self-care and that are career-oriented, but sometimes you just need a good, easy to read fiction novel to enthrall yourself into a different reality. So, that's exactly what I'm going to share with you, but maybe at a later date, I'll share those self-improvement books?
Although at this very moment, I have 12 unread books on my shelf, these are the ones that I'm most excited to read. If you'd like to see how I rate these novels, check out my "Book Reviews" highlight on my Instagram. Since pre-writing this post, I've accumulated more books that I would love to read, so I'll probably do more reading lists throughout the year!
Right after I finished The Selection series, I immediately googled similar books. Both series encapsulate everything I love - royalty, romance, and drama!
I'm not usually one to read thriller novels, I prefer to watch thriller movies instead. However, this "whodunit" type of book intrigued me. I'm not sure how I discovered it, maybe a pin from Pinterest, but it seems like the perfect book to get lost in after a long day of work!
I purchased this classic after having read The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald in high school a little over 5 years ago. It's been sitting on my bookshelf, probably collecting dust, as I previously said, I only recently started getting into reading. Since I've incorporated reading before bed into my nightly routine, I feel ready to fully enjoy this all-time classic.
A story about two troubled teens who find solace in each other, but question if they have what it takes to make this love last. I love reading these books when I need something easy and feel-good to read.
Honestly, I bought this book almost 2 years ago and have yet to read it. I'm not sure if the cover turned me off from reading it, or if I've been saving it to read on vacation (which won't be happening anytime soon cause of Covid!), but this story is definitely my type of genre. It's all about old family secrets and the conflict that wealth creates - similar to a recent book I read and loved, She Regrets Nothing.
I'm hoping this list will hold me accountable and keep me on track for continuing my nightly routine of reading before bed.
If you have any book recommendations, please let me know in the comments, I love seeing what kind of novels each person loves!
