My End of Year TBR: Books I Need to Read Before 2020

Hi all!

It’s so close to the end of the year — and I’m going to ignore how much that scares me, let’s move on — and there are still so many books that I want to read before the year ends!

This list is long and I wonder how probably it is. Regardless, I’m going to try my hardest to get through all these books! Wish me luck!

    The Monster of Elendhaven is sooo good! And short too, so you can knock it off quickly!! Definitely recommend The Electric Heir and Gideon the Ninth too! I’m keen to read Crier’s War, The Library of the Unwritten and The Steel Crow Saga asap too ❤️
