Every Book I Want To Complete This Year: 2021 Booklist.

Trust me, if I wrote about every book I wanted to read this year, this post would be very long.

But I’ll have mercy on you and my fingers. So here are the main books that I want to finish by 2022. Alas, my 2021 booklist.

Most of them are series, and instead of listing every book, I’ll just mention the series.

Every book/series I mention will include a picture and an affiliate link to the book.

But before we dive into books, I want to talk about Bookshop. All the links in this post are affiliate links from Bookshop. Bookshop is a website that aims to support local bookstores. You can read more about them here. I’ve been comparing their prices with Amazon’s and most of the books in Bookshop are actually cheaper.

Circe by Madeline Miller

Madeline Miller - Circe

I’ve had this one saved on my Kindle since last week and I’ve been meaning to get to it. It’s a retelling of a goddess’s story and has great reviews. I’ve had my eye on it for about a year, and I finally bought it.

The Works Of Ursula K. Le Guin

The Books of Earthsea: The Complete Illustrated Edition (Earthsea Cycle): Le  Guin, Ursula K., Vess, Charles: 9781481465588: Books

I realized that I’ve liked many quotes by Le Guin, so I looked her up. And she’s written many books, so this year I want to try reading all of them.

This article has been really helpful on where to start.

Oh, I should also mention who Ursula K. Le Guin is. She’s an “American writer best known for tales of science fiction and fantasy imbued with concern for character development and language.”

Here are a few of her quotes that I liked:

“You cannot buy the revolution. You cannot make the revolution. You can only be the revolution. It is in your spirit, or it is nowhere.”

― Ursula K. Le Guin, The Dispossessed

“My imagination makes me human and makes me a fool; it gives me all the world and exiles me from it.”

― Ursula K. Le Guin

“No darkness lasts forever. And even there, there are stars.”

― Ursula K. Le Guin

Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

The Sherlock Holmes Collection 6 Books Box Set By Sir Arthur Conan Doyle  (His Last Bow, The Memories of Sherlock Holmes, A Study in Scarlet and The  Sign of The Four, The

I got really interested in Sherlock, last month when I binge-watched the BBC show ‘Sherlock Holmes’.(It’s amazing, you gotta watch it.)

Then, I realized I actually own “Study in Scarlett”(I got it for my birthday once).

I’ll probably read it after I finish Circe. If you’re planning on reading Sherlock this year as well, let me know!

And here’s an article on where to start

The Perks Of Being A Wallflower The Perks of Being a Wallflower eBook: Chbosky, Stephen: Kindle  Store

I’ve wanted to read this for years, but my local library never had it for some reason. I’ll probably buy the kindle version, later on, this year.

I really want to watch the movie, starring Emma Watson and Logan Lerman. Two people who played 2 of my favorite characters in movies.

(Although, the “Percy Jackson” movies were horrible.)

They Both Die At The End by Adam Silvera They Both Die at the End (9780062457790): Silvera, Adam: Books

My friend first introduced me to the author Adam Silvera, and I’ve been a big fan of his work since then.

Like most of these books, I’ve wanted to read this one for a long time. Hopefully this year, I’ll actually read it. And there more books by Silvera that I want to finish.

2021, maybe it’ll be my golden year of reading.

Little Women Series by Louisa May Alcott

Now we’re getting more into the classics. Another friend of mine recommended the Little Women series to me, and I’ve wanted to read it ever since the movie with Emma Watson was released.

The Little Women series is more of a duology, and it’s actually been republished so both of the books are combined. There are also 2 official sequels.

Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë

2021 booklist

I’ve been wanting to read this one…

for a long time.

Originally publishing in 1847, it’s a classic Victorian novel. However, I’ve read before that it’s more difficult to read since it was published nearly two centuries ago. It’s also a pretty big book, and the average reading time is 7 hours and 54 minutes. I’m going to see this as a challenge, and record how fast I can read it.

More people seemed to say that it was boring at first, and very confusing. Although, some say if you re-read it, it gets more interesting and understandable. I don’t know about you, but I’m not a fan of re-reading books. The only book/series I would re-read is anything by Rick Riordan.

I’m also not that big of a fan of classic novels. I loved ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’, but ‘Crime and Punishment’ was confusing and quite boring for me.

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

A friend of mine recommended this book a few years ago, he said it was his favorite book at the time. Published in 1988, it follows the journey of a shepherd boy named Santiago.

It’s a simple story and has a lot of inspiring quotes. Even some I’ve saved before but didn’t even know were from that book.

Here are a few:

“And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”

― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

“One is loved because one is loved. No reason is needed for loving.”

― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

“Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own.”

― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

A Tale Of Two Cities by Charles Dickens

I think I started reading this a year ago, but I didn’t like it that much. It was the Amazon Prime Version one, and a lot of reviews said it wasn’t a good copy.

I’ll find an authentic one, and try reading it again. The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare introduced this book to me. And I got immediately interested. I’ll update all of you when I finish it!

Perfect On Paper by Sophie Gonzales Perfect on Paper: A Novel (9781250769787): Gonzales, Sophie:  Books

We’re leaving the classic section, and moving more towards the end. Surprisingly, I haven’t been wanting to read this for a long time like the rest of them.

I was scrolling through Goodreads Discover when I found this book. I instantly fell in love with the synopsis and I’m eagerly waiting for it to be released in March of this year.

More Poetry Books

I started reading more poetry books in 2020. I first began reading Nikita Gill’s poetry books, and they were wondrous. I own almost all of them. If you’re looking for great poetry books you have to read hers.

Another poet I love is Parker Lee(formerly known as Cyrus Parker). They’re an amazing poet and I love Shot Glass Confessional by them. Check them out here:

or on Twitter:

Amanda Lovelace, Rupi Kaur, Edgar Holmes, are more poets whose books I enjoy reading.

conclude of my 2021 booklist

Well, those are the main books I want to read this year. If I find any exceptional ones along the way, I’ll be sure to let y’all know. These my book goals for this year, if you want to know my goals for this year check out these posts.

I hope you enjoyed this round-up of books, I’m hyped to finish this year.

Take care (っ^▿^)

A cool list! I love that you also included Sherlock Holmes’s. Looking forward to seal the goal of Big reader as well- and currently reading Wrong Place by M. A Comley. Well, good luck to both of us. Thank you for sharing this!

Great list! ?

The perks of being a wallflower and they both die at the end are on my to read list too! I haven’t read as much as I’d like to lately but am going to finish the books I haven’t read and then purchase some new ones.

I read Le Guin’s Dispossessed earlier this year and sadly I wasn’t a huge fan. However, that might have been the fact that I had to read it for uni so it took out some of the enjoyment for me! I would also love to read Circe, it’s been on my TBR pile for ages!

Tash – A Girl with a View

Jasmine | Poppies and Jasmine

I read Circe and didn’t love it, actually (My blog post reviewing it – I’ll be curious to know what you think of it when you’re done. I’m planning on rereading Sherlock Holmes this year too! I haven’t touched them since I was a kid. Perfect On Paper sounds interesting – I’ll have to add that to my list.

I definitely want to read the perks of being a wallflower and watch the movie as they sound very interesting! Also, I love the quotes!
