110+ Books I have every intention of reading. Part two

So last year the brilliant Flannery from The Readventurer came out with 110+ list to tackle her to read pile. This week she posted her results and she read 26 books off her list! Which is great as when I checked mine I only read 22 and I had 105 books on my list! What a fail on my part.

I had so much fun compiling this list, lets just hope I have a lot of fun checking a lot of these books off. Are there any books that I've mentioned that you think I need to read right away?

I will try and keep you updated of my progress, I'm sure trying to go and read more than 22 this time! Do you guys keep a to read next list? And do you actually stick to it?


  1. Reading this made me feel SO guilty because I've got about 100 books on my shelf that are TBR and I just keep buying and buying!

    VA and Covenant are two of my favourite series so I think you should move those up your TBR :DDDD I still haven't finished Delirium... I own Pandemonium too. I heard Requiem sucked so I don't see the point in reading that. I think I'll be proud of myself if I make it through Delirium LOL.

    Everything Left Unsaid – this was so sad  I gave it 4/5
    Sweet Evil – I need to read this as well! Everybody is talking about and Wendy is so nice.
    This Song Will Save Your Life – I have the eGalley and I’ve started reading but I just stopped as I got distracted lol. People say it’s really good though
    Something Like Normal – READ THIS. SLN IS AMAZING. TRISH IS AWESOME! Can’t wait for STARS
    Jessi Kirby – I still need to read Golden :P
    Courtney Summers – I heard her books are really good, I have one of her books in eBook format which I’ll get around to in who knows when :P
    Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson – everybody loves her books! I have Amy & Rodger’s Epic Detour which someone told me to get… it’s so pretty inside!
    Time Between Us by Tamara Ireland Stone - this was quite good. A 3.5/5 or 4/5 for me. I have the ARC for Time After Time which I need to read…
    Drowning Instinct by Ilsa J. Bick – this is sitting on my bookshelf. Apparently EXTREMELY emotional and sad
    Pivot Point by Kasie West – this too is sitting on my bookshelf unread
    Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan – I quite liked this, gave it 4/5 but wasn’t as spectacular as everyone made it out to be
    Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta – READ THIS.
    The Storyteller by Antonia Michaelis – DNF for me :/
    Cinder by Marissa Meyer – another book where I expected a lot more because of the hype. Ended up giving it 3/5
    The Fault in Our Stars by John Green - … No words. Drop everything and read this above all others.
    If You Find Me by Emily Murdoch – a lot of harsh book bloggers gave this really good ratings so I want!
    Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas – as you saw on my STS I just got a copy of this :P looks freaky… like PLL
    Die For Me by Amy Plum – is an ok series. I like the French setting and descriptions. But I gave every book in the series 3/5
    The Distance Between Us by Kasie West - I wanttttt this so bad omg, I have it on preorder and everyday I’m just like ‘WHY HASN’T BOOKSTORE EMAILED ME YET?’
    Just One Year by Gayle Forman – I luff this so much :3 you should definitely buy it!
    Where the Stars Still Shine by Trish Doller - I got rejected for the galley of this by US publisher. Crying inside. Hopefully Aus will get egalleys D:
    These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Megan Spooner - I loveeeeeeeee the cover of this. I requested an ARC, cannot waitttt
    Allegiant by Veronica Roth – FOUR FOUR FOUR

  2. There are so many amazing books on your list, I don't even know where to begin. To be honest, it's a bit overwhelming. I don't think I need to say another word about how much I want you to read Kate Daniels, for example. Cut & Run, however, was somewhat of a disappointment. I stopped after the first book. I might continue eventually, but not just now.
    Enjoy your reads!

  3. Woot, good luck, Jasprit! I've been revising my original list a lot, mostly because I realized that so many of the books I thought I really wanted to read I didn't after checking out some reviews. I see some great reads on here - Fire Horse Girl, In the Shadow of Blackbirds, Imaginary Girls - and I'm planning to pick up the Chaos Walking Series and a few others myself. Lovely list, dear! :)

  4. OMGGG YOU HAVEN'T READ THE VAMPIRE ACADEMY?!?! WHAT O______O GO READ/FINISH IT NOW!! Honestly, I haven't read most of the books on your list...but I NEED TO READ THEM SOON!! Esp. Tiger Lily & Jessi Kirby's books :) Oohh and also, YOU HAVE TO READ THIS SONG WILL SAVE YOUR LIFE!!! BEST.BOOK.EVER<3

  5. Uh um. So... HOW THE HELL DO I BEGIN. I'd totally copy Jaz but then I would be here for years so here are books you simply must read ASAP:
    Chaos Waking Trilogy- it's my second favourite series of all time and it's BEAUUUTIFUL
    Kasie West- SHE'S AMAZEBALLS
    Everneath- this is what... My 5th FAV series? Jack <33

    Hope you get to read them all! <33

  6. Wow, Jasprit, what a list! You really must read Breaking Point soon, it was a brilliant sequel IMO. ^^ I couldn't get on with the mc from the VA series, but I started the Bloodlines spin-off series last year and really enjoyed it, the mc was so much more to my likable! I am so excited about Kinslayer, Size 12 is the New Black (can't believe it's the last in the series :'c) and These Broken Stars!

  7. Oh my goodness what a list!!! So many of those are on my own TBR so if you ever fancy a buddy read :)
    KATE DANIELS! One of my all time favourite series, you need to tell me as soon as you start :D
    The DUFF is epic, seriously not enough words to describe the love.
    Requiem was a massive disappointment for me unfortunately so I'm looking forward to your thoughts.
    Iced. Ahhhhhh! Karen Marie Moning is a magician!
    Happy reading, Jasprit!

  8. This is a great idea! I myself have been making a similar effort to read more of the books that have been on my TBR for a while/were popular amongst friends/or were recommended to me. My goal is to read two from that list per month. Not too ambitious, but better than keep saying that i'll read that eventually. I feel like I can stick with this. I just finished Tiger Lily and I loved it so i'm glad I finally picked it up! Good luck in your efforts!

  9. Wow. This is one heck of a list, I could drown in it. Lol! But if I try to make a list like that I think it would be really that many too or even more than that. I hope you reach your goal of reading more than your previous 22 reads. Hehe. And ooh, this is the first time I've heard of The Promise of Amazing, it looks really good. Thank for bringing this on my radar! Good luck with all you reading, Jasprit! Have fun! :)

  10. OMG! Looking at this makes my head ache!
    But good luck with it! :) I hope you reach your goal!

  11. Chaos Walking series! YESSSSS! Love those books! I'm always trying to get people to read them. lol But it takes a bit to get into them so some people flounce. They are worth continuing though. I'm starting the Vampire Academy series this summer! I've heard so many amazing things about these characters so I have to check it out especially before the movie. Time Between Us is another I must read soon. So many awesome books up there I've read or want to read too. Good luck! :)

  12. Wow Jasprit, that is a heck of a list! I need to read more of Trish Doller too, well any Trish Doller since I fail at life and haven't tried her yet. I've heard such great things about Something Like Normal, and I can't wait to read Where the Stars Still Shine. Good luck checking books of this list of awesome:)

  13. This is a great list, Jasprit! I have a lot of the same titles on my TBR list - hopefully we'll be reading Sweet Evil and Nevermore soon.

  14. I could spend hours listing books I want and need to read.There a couple of series at the top of my list though: Kate Daniels, Elemental Assassin, Shatter Me and Under the Never Sky!

  15. This is fabulous ! I should really try making a list, but I think I would end up crying! I really hope you read What Happens Next, and finish Vampire Academy. Something Like Normal is a must-read, as well.

    Good luck!

  16. That is a long list, but I know you can do it! You have some awesome titles on there. My own list would be way too long to list out but there are a lot from your own list I want to read like Sanctum and the rest of the Jessica Darling books (I've read the first, though I should probably re-read before I move on). Oh, and I really want to read In the Shadow of Blackbirds too.

    You should definitely read The Duff soon. I need to read more by Kody but I loved her debut.

  17. I actually just read the last book in the Chaos Walking trilogy on Friday. It was fantastic! It's definitely a favorite of mine and I'm going to recommend it to everyone! :)

  18. I do have a to-read list however it just always grows but never seems to shrink! I've been thinking lately about a way to keep track and actually read more books from that list. I want to read the books I've been interested in for a long time but I always seem to just pick up whatever is closest. That's just not working for me at all lately either. Everything I've picked up lately has just been boring or not my thing at all so I've been very un-motivated to even read at all. I need a new system!

  19. I've been meaning to compile a list like this too! I sort of have one (on paper) but I need to do a post about it as well. Thanks for the good reminder! I hope you get a bunch of these checked of your list. :D

    Julia @ That Hapa Chick

  20. Mmm, I love making lists of books! I hope you get through a lot of these so you can knock them off the list!

  21. Wow, that is a huge list! I would definitely recommend pushing The Boyfriend List towards the top, I love that book/series. I want to start the Jessica Darling series, too, but other books just keep getting in the way. I love this idea though - I might have to make a list of my own!

  22. I loved reading through your list! Vampire Academy is one of my favourite series and a complete must read! Jessi Kirby and Trish Doller are two authors I still need to check out, I have their books, I just haven't read them! I hope you manage to tick lots of these off, Jas! I'm such a mood reader and am terrible at sticking to lists. :|

  23. I definitely keep a to read list. I try to keep up with it, but sometimes it seems endless. I've been wanting to ask about the Shadow and Bone copy on your book case, why does it look so huge?

  24. Such a big collection of the book and all of them relevant to education i really like it thanks for share it personal statement pharmacy school .
