  1. Really cool list! Have you read The Abyss Surrounds Us? It’s a really great YA story about sea creatures & a young girl who has to find herself alone. I also recommend Born Confused by Tamika Dessie Hidier. It’s a coming of age story about a young girl who struggles with her identity caught between two cultures. It’s also pretty funny. 😊 I wish you all the best with happy reading in the new year!

  2. Wow! Quite a list! Love Hobbits and No Country for Old Men. Check out the book, True Grit ( the Cohen brothers did an amazing adaption of it in ther movie.) Not sure if you like poetry and short stories … He also has novels. Google author Ron Rash. He is a professor in NC. Happy new year! I appreciate you and your blog!

    1. Ah True Grit, I’ve seen the film but when it first came out so I will definitely check out the book. I love poetry and short stories and I will note down Aron Rash’s name to look into. Happy New Year, thank you so much for stopping by and seeing my blog. 😊


  3. Ron Rash…might be an Aron Rash and we would both be confused! Also, please add, I believe it was titled Breath Without Air….weeks at number one on NY Tines best seller list. About a young neuro-surgeon …also co-written by his wife. Truly, an amazing book!!

  4. Love Harry Potter and The Hobbit. This is such a great list and I hope you enjoy reading them all. Have you read The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers or The Loney by Andrew Michael Hurley. They were my favourite books I read last year. They are amazing books and the storylines are very clever especially with the Loney. I was hooked on both these books and could not put them down until I finished them. 😊😊


  5. I really love this! It adds books from your required reading list + those that are you leisure reads! I’m taking a similar course in the summer/fall this year and it’s called Young Adult Literature, which I’m super stoked about!

    Some recommendations of mine would be My Lady Jane, I’ll Give You the Sun, Of Metal and Wishes (Phantom of the Opera retelling!), and the Fetch (set in time of the last Czar of Russia). I hope you haven’t read any of these 😛

    I’m hoping to get a lot of leisure reading done this semester, especially with my Gender and Sex Literature class. We are reading Lolita which will take a HUGE portion of my time >.<

    Anyways, I could talk forever! I wish you luck with this coming semester! 🙂

I would love to take that course, what other books do you study on it? I will add all of them to my TBR list, ahh exciting!! Gender and Sex Literature class also sounds amazing! I really do like Lolita, it’s a thought provoking and worthwhile read. Hahah feel free to come back and talk to me anytime you want. Thank you and you! 😊❤️
