January – February 2019 Reading List

Happy belated New Year’s everyone! I hope y’all had a wonderful Christmas and New Years! For today’s post I’m going to be doing a TBR list and if you’re unaware of what “TBR” is it is “to be read” and if you’re a part of the book community, especially on YouTube, you’ll have seen this going around and I also plan to do one too and I’ll link the video here once it’s published so after all that being said, I’m going to be showing y’all the books I plan to read in these next two months and (actually) do an update on my thoughts on every book and what I liked, didn’t like, didn’t finish, etc. so let’s get into the books!

So I decided to start off with a short amount of books and also in length so I don’t overwhelm myself in a short amount of time. Some are manga, some are classics, a little bit of everything.

The books I plan to read first are mangas and it is the Fruits Basket Collector’s Edition Vol 1 – 4 by Natsuki Takaya and I am honestly excited to start this first because it brings back memories and I like that these are pretty easy to read, but I do want to take my time and enjoy it. I’m also excited about the 2019 anime adaptation of Fruits Basket – so beautiful and I’m stoked to say the least! 🙂

Now this one was in one of my other blog post – that’s now deleted – and I honestly never got to read about it in that time and I hope to read it now. It’s The Paris Key by Juliet Blackwell. I’ve never read any other books by this author but I hope it’s good and if you’ve read it (no spoilers, please) let me know if you liked it or not! 🙂

Now we’re getting into the classics!

The first two classics I’ll be reading are Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll and Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë. I’ve seen both the Disney version and live adaptation of Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass and enjoyed both of them, but I’ve always wanted to read it and see how I like the book. As for Wuthering Heights, I’ve seen the movie – the one with Tom Hardy in it, loved it – and I have read some of it on my phone from the Books app on the iPhone, but I wanted a physical copy and I’m so glad I got it in this design I want to get the rest in this kind of format! I can’t wait to read these two!

Lastly, I’ve got two books by Jane Austen and one by Robert Louis Stevenson. The one by Robert Louis Stevenson is Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and I have read some passages thanks to my high school english literature teacher, but I never was able to read the whole book – don’t know why, honestly – but I’m looking forward to reading this book and see how I like it.

The ones by Jane Austen are Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility and just like Wuthering Heights I’ve seen the movies and enjoyed them, but I definitely want to read the books and I have read the annotated version of Pride and Prejudice, but I got too distracted in reading the notes and not really focusing on the story as a whole and it would give me a headache every time I would try to read it so I’m glad I got a ‘normal’ version of the book. I’ve never read Sense and Sensibility, but like I’ve said for who knows how many times, I’m excited to read this book.

So that’s my reading list for January & February 2019 and I’ll be doing my update – hopefully – on the last week or day of February and I’ll let y’all know what I liked and didn’t like and my ratings! Also, if you have GoodReads definitely let me know and I’ll be glad to follow y’all! 🙂  My GoodReads link is here ! 🙂

I hope y’all enjoyed this post and I hope this year is amazing for you guys!
