My Possible Choices:
Doesn’t this look fun? I’m already planning my books and have a few in mind. Here are some of the books I’m debating:
A Book Released in 2020:
I’m thinking either Midnight Sun or Between Savage Tides. These are my most anticipated upcoming releases, and I plan to read both.
A Book on My WTR for Ages:
For this, I want to do either Ash Princess or An Ember in the Ashes. They’ve both been on my WTR for a while, though Ash Princess has been on longer.
A Book Set in Space:
Definitely Aurora Burning! I enjoyed the first book and am on the wait list at the library for this one. Fingers crossed I’ll get it soon!
A Book Set Abroad:
I’m not sure about this one yet. Maybe Something Strange and Deadly, maybe a historical romance that takes place abroad. I’m still debating…
A Graphic Novel:
Ok – not a huge reader of graphic novels, so I have no clue what to choose for this one. Help me out. Which graphic novel would you recommend?
A Book by a Trans/Non-Binary Author
I’m thinking I Wish you All the Best or Cemetery Boys. I want to read both and have heard amazing things about them. Right now, I’m leaning toward Cemetery Boys.
A Book Set in the Past:
All Scot and Bothered is the perfect choice for this one. It’s a historical romance, though I’m not sure on the exact time period. Definitely in the past though!
A Famous Fantasy Book:
I recently started House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas, which is super popular this year. I read about a third of it before I stopped to do a buddy read of Six of Crows (which is beyond amazing!!!!). So, I’m thinking I’ll revisit House of Earth and Blood for this challenge!
I taught high school English for almost 20 years and have read my share of classics. However, I might do a re-read of Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca. I’ve read the book several times and love it.
I might re-read Pride and Prejudice. This is another favorite classic that I like to re-read from time to time.
Which do you think I should read – Rebecca or Pride and Prejudice?

Great post! I hope you enjoyed Aurora Burning as much as I did (which is to say QUITE A LOT) 🙂
I can’t wait to get it!
That’s a tough one! Rebecca and Pride and Prejudice are both really good! But… I think I’d have to suggest Pride and Prejudice! 😁
Right! I can’t resist ELizabeth and Darcy. 🙂 Plus, it gives me an excuse to watch the movie again.
This is a fun idea! I’m looking forward to reading Midnight Sun! Even though I have pretty low expectations for it, I’m still planning on getting it as soon as possible. I have never read Rebecca, but I plan to. I also could use a good Jane Austen re-read of all her books. It’s been awhile since I’ve read any of them.
As long as there are sparkling vampires, I think I’ll be happy. lol
Rebecca is a great story if you enjoy gothic romance. Beautiful writing!
You have soooo many good books on here!! 🙂
Thank you! 🙂
Thankyou so much for doing the tag! Your choices look super – I think I’m going to try Cemetry Boys aswell 🙂
I love the tag! 🙂 So fun!
A friend of mine swears by Rebecca, (it’s her favorite book) so that would be a good one, but you also can’t go wrong with P&P 😉
Right! They’re both so good! 🙂
