Here are three books I would like to read this year:
- Persepolis 2: The Story of a Return (Marjane Satrapi)
- Circe (Madeline Miller)
- The Hundred Secret Senses (Amy Tan)
Originally, I planned on doing a list of the top five books I’m most excited for that will be published in 2019. Except, I only know about one book that I’m interested in reading.
The Gilded Wolves is written by Roshani Chokshi and I’m super excited to read it. It comes out later this month (January 2019). It is supposed to be about a heist (and secret societies?), I’m trying not to get my hopes up too high after Six of Crows. But, The Gilded Wolves takes place in Paris in 1889, and it just sounds really promising.
I’ve read a couple of reviews and The Gilded Wolves has a pretty high rating- around four-ish stars and it’s supposed to have a diverse cast of characters, which is always amazing to read about. Diversity is really important, because it’s realistic and the entire world in interconnected; personally, I really appreciate it when authors acknowledge how there are many different types of people and that they should be represented too.
I have requested it from the library, so it might be the next book I write about.
