Hello and happy new year to whoever reading this post. I could not write anything on this blog for last 2 months. But, it’s a new year and now that the exam is over, I hope I will be able to blog more regularly from now on. I absolutely enjoy reading. To me. books are something that takes you to somewhere far away from the crowd and cacophony. It is oxygen to a bibliophile. So, here I am sharing the books that are on my 2018 reading list. And, I have planned to complete these book by the end of April. Check out the list and let me know if you have read any of these books.

1. The Gospel of Loki by Joanne M. Harris
I’m currently reading this book. And, I must say I am having a lot of fun reading it. Loki is one sarcastic guy, who sometimes will remind you of Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl. This book tells the story of Norse Mythology from Loki, the God of mischief’s point of view. He is mostly portrayed as an antagonist. Here, Loki tells another version of the story that Odin told. I’m already halfway through the book and I cannot wait to finish reading it.
2. Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee
This book came out last year and since the day I heard about this book I found the story very interesting. This book tells the tale of Henry Montague, a wild soul who can not be tamed. When his father wants him to be responsible and take over family’s estate, Henry decides to do a last hurrah and went on a trip with his best friend and his crush Percy. And, an exciting adventure was waiting for them that will change his life.
3. The Alice Network by Kate Quinn
While checking Goodreads I came across this book and read the summery. And, it seemed like the story I will fall in love with. Set in the backdrop of 1947, this story is about an American college girl named Charlie. She embraces a journey to find her cousin Rose, who has disappeared without a trace in Nazi-occupied France. Her search for her cousin takes an unexpected turn when she meets Eve Gardner, who once upon a time joined the first world war against the German as a spy. Together they will set on a journey which will change their lives and the way they view the world.
4. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Another book I’m planning to read since last year. Can’t wait to get my hands on this book now. Once I finish what I’m reading now, I’ll start reading this one. Six of Crows is the 1st installment of a duology with the same name. Kaz Brekker can achieve wealth beyond limit but for this, he will have to commit an impossible heist. He recruits six most dangerous people who seemed perfect for the job. But, there is a problem with his plan. Six of them might kill each other before performing the heist. Sounds like a thrilling page-turner right?
5. Until It Fades by K.A. Tucker
I must read this book before my friends get too tired of waiting for me to read it and spill the spoilers. The protagonist of this story is a young single mother Cathrine Wright, who wants only two things. One, give her child a good life and not becoming the talk of the town once again. But, when she saves a famous hockey player, once again she is thrown into the spotlight. She decides to hide her identity to avoid her past from the world but what will happen when she falls for the man she saved? Well, I’ve heard mixed reviews about the book. Hopefully, I won’t be disappointed.
6. After You by Jojo Moyes
I have seen both positive and negative reviews about this book. I loved ‘Me Before You’. And, I must read to find out if this one is as good as its prequel. This story follows Louis Clark after the events of ‘Me Before You’ (Must read it if you haven’t yet). Unable to move on from the person she loved, Lou comes back to her hometown. Destiny makes Lou meet a paramedic, Sam Fielding. Sam, who sees life and death every day is the only person who understands Lou. But, once again destiny had another plan for Lou when she was forced to face her past once again.
7. Between the Tides by Patti Callahan Henry
The last thing Catherine wants to do is to visit her hometown ever again and face the childhood tragedy she went through. But, to fulfill his father’s last wishes she returns to the town she grew up in. Her life takes an unexpected turn when she discovers the secret her family kept hidden for many years. This story is about a journey of love, loss, self-discovery, and redemption. I have heard great things about the book. Hope, it matches my expectation.
Here is the list which I am sure will get tripled within a few months. Comment below if you have read these books or planning to read one. Also, suggest some contemporary books that you want me to read.
