Unread Books I Think I'll Love

In my ever-growing TBR there will always be a few books at any given time that will stand out to me as potential new loves. I'm excited to (eventually) read all of the books I currently own, but there a select few that are standing out to me lately. I read for pleasure like most book lovers so I don't expect to adore every book I pick up, but that doesn't mean you can't get excited about potential five star reads, right? So in this week's post I thought I'd share with you some of the books I'm planning to pick up - and hopefully love - very soon.

Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng
2014 • 297 pages  Penguin Books

This one has been on my radar for some time. I noticed that it was doing the rounds on booktube a couple of years back and I mentally added it to my TBR, Fast-forward a year or two and I finally got my hands on a copy. This sounds like a cosy family drama/mystery that I could definitely get on board with and one I can see myself devouring in a few days. At just under three hundreds pages that shouldn't be a problem so I'm hoping to love what Celeste Ng has to offer because I've heard amazing things.

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman
2017 • 385 pages • Harper Collins

I feel like most of you will have heard about this one. Honeyman's debut is national bestseller, has been nominated for numerous literary prizes and has even won a few, so naturally I want to see what all of the fuss is about. I know countless people online and in my real life who have loved this and I hope I'll be one to join this particular group of book love. 

A Gathering of Shadows by V. E. Schwab 
2016  508 pages  Titan Books

Earlier this year I read A Darker shade of Magic, the first in V. E. Schwab's "Shades of Magic" trilogy, and I loved it. It had been on my radar for some time and I was craving a bit of fantasy so it was the right book at the right time. Since then I've been desperate to pick up the next book in the series so I can delve back in to this world. I struggle with staying engaged with complex high fantasy - unless I'm watching Game of Thrones - but these books are the right amount of fantasy for me. They're imaginative but are still grounded in a familiar reality. This is one I have high expectations for. 

Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng
2017 • 336 pages • Little Brown Book Group

Despite having to yet read Ng's debut, since her second novel came out I've been itching to get my hands on it. Is it crazy to say you think you're going to love an authors work before you've picked up any of their books? I know what I like and I think Celeste Ng is going to be one of those writer's that I click with. I guess I'll have to stop speculating and actually start reading.


So these are the books on the very top of my current TBR and the ones I'm hoping to fall in love with. They're all popular and well-loved books already so they've got lots to live up too. I guess I best start reading...
