I’ve always been proud of being an eclectic reader. No, I don’t read nonfiction. However, I’ve always read a wide variety of fictional genres.
Lately, I can’t find interest in anything heavier than romantic comedy. This is true in both my reading choices and my television choices. But, that’s another topic.
Here are the books I should be reading.
by Jay Kristoff
Heaven Help me! I loved this series. I devoured books 1 and 2, and yet when I tried to start this book I just couldn’t feel it. It calls to me, and I’m dying to know how the trilogy ends, but I know if I tried to force it I would only feel resentment.
by Jay Kristoff
I started reading this book two days ago. I loved LIFEL1K3. The ending wrecked me. I really really want to finish this trilogy, but I can’t. I just can’t do YA right now, and I haven’t figured out why.
3. Dark Age
by Pierce Brown
Red Rising has been one of my favorite Science Fiction series for a long while. In my “nothing heavy” phase in life screams that this novel is going to be too much. Please pray I don’t kick the bucket before I pick this back up.
by Stephanie Garber
Finale was quite literally a finale. The culmination of Scarlet and Tella come together in this final book, and I want so badly to know how this story ends. Somehow I only made it to about 40% before I couldn’t keep going. It wasn’t bad. I just didn’t want to read it.
5. House of Earth and Blood
by Sarah J Maas
I read the first chapter of this book, and I loved it. The hardcover is gorgeous. Absolutely stunning. I want this second opportunity to fall in lover with Sarah J Maas. But man, it’s dense. I feel like I’m not in the place these days for a book like this. My mind can’t handle it.
6. Wayward Son
by Rainbow Rowell
This one isn’t heavy. I’m sure it’s light and sweet. That cover is so adorable, and I love Baz and Simon. I recently bought this in hardcover because I hated that I didn’t have this book to add to my Rowell shelf. But, it’s YA. I’m in a YA rut.
7. The Place on Dalhousie
by Melina Marchetta
The House on Dalhousie is the book I’ve been waiting almost a decade for. It’s the story of my favorite character from all of Melina’s books, Jimmy Hailer. And yet, I’ve had this for months and months. I have the ebook, and I have the paperback. I have no reason to suspect it’s going to be too intense, yet I’m still secretly nervous it’s not going to be a “happy” read.
8. Beard With Me
by Penny Reid
I flew through the Winston Brothers series. I’m crazy about this group of bearded brothers, and I really really wanted to read Beard Necessities. The problem is Penny Reid wrote a prequel to Billy and Claire’s story and called it #6 in the series. It’s not a 5.5, which for some reason I feel like I don’t need to read. No, she made it book #6. Now, no matter how excited I am to read book seven, it will always feel tainted. I can’t read this book. It’s a tragedy, and the story of Billy and Claire already breaks my heart as it is. I don’t want to read this book. I don’t want to know the particulars. My heart can’t take it.

If it’s not light, fluffy, funny and romantic. I can’t do it.
by Jim Butcher
Changes is a whole new issue. I lost all my ebooks for this series when my computer kaputzed. I haven’t been able to break down and spend $9.99 on another copy. It’s killing me more now, because Peace Talks came out. I really really wanted to be caught up before it came out.
