Books for 2018 with LotsOfLivres

It’s the start of a new year, which is still hard to wrap my mind around but I’m excited. It’s only the fourth week of 2018 when I’m writing this and even though I’ve been ill that entire time, there are a lot of exciting things which I’ve got planned for this year! One of these exciting plans are to read all the books which I’ve been meaning too – not the most realistic goal but it’s a pretty good one to go for. Which is why I’ve joined up with Marie from LotsofLivres, as we are going to recommend each other some books based on what we already want to read. We thought this would be a good way of mixing up what we are reading and possibly discover a new favourite book or author in 2018!

The Night Circus By Erin Morgenstern

A book which has been on my bookshelves for almost fours years maybe? Oh, I feel bad not having read it already but I was waiting for the book to call out to me to read and now I feel 2018 is the year I’m going to read it!

Leviathan Wakes By James S.A Corey

A recent book recommendation from a podcast but something I’m excited to read!

Poldark By Winston Graham

I adore the TV show, I think I may have rewatched all three seasons over five times since discovering it last Summer! I can’t wait a year for each season which means I need to read the books!

Ready Player One By Ernest Cline

I keep getting in trouble for not having read this already! Honestly, quite a few friends have been shocked that I hadn’t actually read it all so finally I caved and bought a copy.

The Princess Bride By William Goldman

A classic film which I completely adore and only recently found it was based on an actual book so I am excited to see the differences between the two.


Marie’s Recommendations:

  • Necessary Lies By Diane Chamberlain
  • Everything Leads To You By Nina LaCour (Something which has been on my TBR for years!)
  • Asking For It By Louise O’Neill
  • Paper Butterflies By Lisa Heathfield
  • Between Shades of Gray By Ruta Sepetys

I actually have quite a few of these books sitting on my bookcase so I am very excited to pick them up and start reading!

    1. I can completely understand why people wouldn’t like this book but I feel like its something important to read? If you know what I mean. Thank you Amy xx


    1. Definitely not a great feeling when you have so many books you need to read! I’m trying to cut down my book buying so hopefully I’ll be able to dwindle them all down. I know I will be unhauling quite a few soon enough.


    1. I adore the TV adaptation of Poldark which is why I picked up the book which I have read the first chapter and it’s really good so would definitely recommend! I adored ACOTAR but I especially adore Court of Mist and Fury!


  1. In the past I have really fallen in and out of love with reading (despite studying English at university) but so happy to be back in the swing of it. Currently reading Inferior by Angela Saini, it is such an interesting read. Love being recommended books by people who have adored reading it themselves, I always feel it’ll be a good read going into it 😊

    1. Definitely! I think this is why me and Marie did this post because when someone takes the time to reccomend something to you then you know you’ll likely enjoy it.

  2. I’ve not read any of these but I’ve heard a lot about Ready Player One, which sounds like an interesting book to me. It’s one I’d quite like to myself, Oh and Princess Bride of course – I didn’t know the movie was based on a book either! x

  3. That’s a really good idea to join up with someone else to prompt you to read more books. I belong to a Book Group IRL and we have to read a book for discussion every month – it’s potluck, sometimes you hit gold, other times not so much but at least you read a lot! I LOVED The Night Circus – when it does call you, I don’t think you’ll regret it – good luck! xx

    1. I’m part of a book group too and I agree it can definitely be potluck in what you end up reading and whether you end up enjoying it. I can’t wait to pick up The Night Circus!
