5 Books I Want to Read Before 2022

I can hardly believe that 2021 is almost over. I keep telling people that last year felt like it went on forever while this year has just been a blur. Since starting Literati Medium, I have finished my Goodreads goal for the first time in...ever. That doesn't mean that I'm going to stop reading though. Here are five books I want to read before 2022.

One - Fynneas Fog: Nine of Swords by Brooklyn Quintana

Royalty? A family secret? A magic book? Sign me up. This book gives me serious dark academia vibes from its description. Also, if you follow my Booktube channel, you know that I choose my TBR with tarot cards, so the fact that this has the name of a tarot card is right up my alley. The meaning behind the nine of swords card is anxiety, hopelessness, and trauma, so I'm anticipating an incredibly dark ride.

Two - Iron Prince by Bryce O'Connor

I've heard really good things about this book. Based on the description, it seems like a really great underdog story, which I'm always game for. Also, the Goodreads description opens with "Reidon Ward will become a god." I mean...what a great tagline.

Three - The Art of Running Away by Sabrina Kleckner

This is a brand new release and I'm so excited for it. I love that this is a story for kids that is LGBTQIA+ friendly. It also introduces the idea that it's okay to think outside of what your family thinks and introduces forgiveness. I got all this just from the description of the book, so I can't imagine how good the book actually is in these regards.

Four - Lore Olympus: Volume One

I've been meaning to get back into graphic novels and manga. Lore Olympus seems right up my alley. What better way to start than with an Eisner-nominated web-comic that is a Persephone retelling? The artwork is so cute and colorful that I can't wait to dig in.

One - Illborn by Daniel T. Jackson

The concept for this book is so interesting to me. I love the idea of people discovering they have powers in a world where - at least from the summary - no one has powers. It adds a nice layer of mystery to the fantasy that I'm sure will just draw me in.

Have you read any of these books? What did you think? Let me know in the comments below!
