A desideratum.

Thursday, January 2, 2020



As you may or may not know, I've been reading Truthwitch by Susan Dennard. As I continue to read and do my best to keep my new year's resolution, I find myself enjoying a world I had simply given mere glances to. Truthwitch is a book that I had bought, put on my shelf in hopes I'd get to it sooner rather than later, and then proceeded to forget I had it. Let's just say that I don't have any regrets picking up this book and 2020 is on the track to be successful.

Truthwitch is a spontaneous read. As I said before, I forgot about the book. I didn't read the synopsis when I picked it. I just took it and ran with it. Despite my first read of 2020 being spontaneous, there are books that I do plan on reading. Some books have been on my list for ages. Other books are fairly new to the list of books I wish to read. 

Here are five books that I wish to read:

  1. A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas - Once upon a time, I fell madly in love with the words of Sarah J. Maas when I read the first book to the A Court of Thorns and Roses series. I fell for Tamlin like everyone else but was soon siding with the mystery man of the Night Court,  Rhysand. Halfway through the book, I wanted more from Rhysand and was more than happy with the outcome of the first book of the series. It's been a while since I've picked up one of her books but I am really excited to get back to it.
  2. The Night Circus by Erin Morganstern - I've been excited to read this book for a while. When I read the synopsis, the part that intrigued me the most is where it read that only one can be left standing out of the two magicians. Not to mention there are some dark and mysterious things happening behind the curtains of a circus that only happens at night. 
  3. Find Me by André Aciman - If you read Call Me By Your Name, then you understand how vital it is to read the second book. I fell in love with Elio and Oliver in the first novel. Hell, I even watched the movie more times than I can remember. We all remember the famous speech Elio's dad gave him that moved us. Now, Elio's dad is being thrown into the novel. Sign me up for it all. Call Me By Your Name is a beautiful novel. I believe Find Me will be just as beautiful.
  4. Harry Potter & the Philosopher's Stone by J.K. Rowling - No matter how many times I've attempted to read the Harry Potter series, I couldn't seem to finish a book. I did get to read Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, but that is not J.K. Rowling's doing. I fell in love with the wizarding world and know so much without reading a book. Every time I picked up a book, I would enjoy it and something happened that would hinder me from finishing it. I'm making it my mission to dive headfirst into the Harry Potter, Hogwarts, and the wizarding world. 
  5.  Love & Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch - Two things that I love are Gelato and Italy. Sign me up every time. I have enjoyed stories where the plot goes deeper than that. There's isn't anything more perfect than a story that takes the reader through a roller coaster of romance, adventure, self-realization, and a beautiful country with charm. Lina, the main character, caught my attention before I had the chance to read the book. 
2020 is going to be a year of books and real-life adventures for me. As I said in my last post, I spent my entire 2019 in moments and not in fantasy land. I miss fantasy land. I love it as much as I love reality. I'm learning to balance both. I may not document every book I read because I read for the love it, but I will try. Good or bad. I'm excited about all of the books I read in 2020 and the adventures I'll bring them on.
