Last year I shared some of the books on my TBR that it felt like everyone but me had read. Since then, I wrote an update post about the books on the list that I read and my thoughts on them. There are so many books that I feel like everyone has read that I have yet to get to so I thought I would write a part two. I would love to know your thoughts on all of these books
Red, White, and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston
# of Goodreads friends who have read it: 51
Red, White and Royal Blue is a new release but I have been seeing it everywhere! I seems as though everyone has read it already, and absolutely loved it. It sounds so sweet and charming. I think it just might be my next audiobook. I want to be part of the conversation!
Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys
# of Goodreads friends who have read it: 79
Salt to the Sea is a book that has been on my list for years. Everyone was talking about it at the time and it is one of those books that I still see pop up from time to time. People often say it is one of the best WWII novels. So many people rave about all of Ruta Sepetys novels and I have yet to read anything by her.
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
# of Goodreads friends who have read it: 108
Jane Eyre is one of those classics that everyone seems to love. I often see people list it as their favourite classic. I have a feeling I will also love it and I have no excuse as to why I have not read it. I definitely need to make it a priority!
Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
# of Goodreads friends who have read it: 36
Where the Crawdads Sing is one of those books that everyone and their mother has read. I have people in my real life recommending this one to me- which never happens! I adore historical fiction and this one sounds like it is going to be a winner.
We are the Ants by Shaun David Hutchinson
# of Goodreads friends who have read it: 48
I am ashamed to admit that I have not read anything by Shaun David Hutchinson. So many people list him as a favourite author and I just know I will love his books. I have all of his titles on my TBR but We are the Ants is the one that I want to get to first, and the one that it feels like everyone else has already read.
Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia
# of Goodreads friends who have read it: 74
Eliza and Her Monsters was all the rage when it first come out in 2017. I love the premise of this one and I think it sounds exactly like the kind of YA novel that I adore. The cover makes me feel as though art is part of the story in some way- as I have mentioned before, art in novels is one of my favourite things!
The Fifth Wave by Rick Yancey
# of Goodreads friends who have read it: 93
The 5th Wave is one of those books that I feel like I missed the boat on. It is the one book on this list that I am not sure is worth reading. If you have read it- let me know your thoughts! It was absolutely everywhere when it first came up but I know that people were disappointed with the rest of the series.
The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
# of Goodreads friends who have read it: 110
Every time I talk about how I have not read The Handmaid’s Tale I feel like such a horrible Canadian. This is one of those books where I have always known the gist of the story despite not having read it. It is that well known and well loved!
Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi
# of Goodreads friends who have read it: 89
I truly think I am one of the few book bloggers who didn’t read Children of Blood and Bone when it first came out. It sounds awesome and so many people loved it. I know the sequel comes out soon so I need to get to it ASAP!
I would love to know your thoughts on all of these books!
What is the one book you feel like everyone but you has read?
