Top Ten Tuesday – Books I Want To Read Before 2021 Ends

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week the suggested post is about something different, but I’m trying to get back into blogging more regularly (I know I’ve been saying this all year) and that got me thinking about the end of 2021. So this Tuesday I decided to talk about books I want to read before the year ends. I’ve already made my overall reading goal for the year, so now I just want to focus on reading a bunch of interesting and enjoyable books before 2022 makes it’s entrance.

1. Sacred Economics by Charles Eisenstein

This book was recommended during a talk on queer community living that I attended earlier in the year. The talk was really interesting and the people had a lot of great advice so I decided to try and find this book. Thankfully my new library has it!

2. Star Child by Briana Saussy

I can’t remember now how I found out about this book but it seemed interesting and now that I actually have a kiddo it seems like a good time to read it.

3. The Wonder Weeks by Hetty van de Rijt

This is not a book I’m going to try and finish by the end of the year but I am going to be reading it through the end of this year and into the next. My cousin recommended it to me and I’m excited to give it a try and hopefully get some help!

4. Anne of the Island by L. M. Montgomery

I’ve been working my way through the Anne series this year, since it’s probably been at least 10 years since the last time I read them all. I’m hoping to finish this book by December and hopefully finish the rest of the series next year.

5. Dawn by Octavia E. Butler

My partner Dani has been getting me back into to sci-fi, which of course reminded me of this trilogy that I’d read years ago. I remembered liking it but not much else about it.

6. Sodom and Gomorrah by Marcel Proust

Proust is an author I’ve been meaning to read forever and hopefully this year I actually do it!

7. Femlandia by Christina Dalcher

This is a book that Goodreads recommended to me and it sounded interesting.

8. The Great God Pan by Arthur Machen

Another book I can’t remember how I stumbled across. I only have 3462 books on my TBR. It’s hard to remember how I found all of them.

9. The Witch by Ronald Hutton

This book is one of a long list in my continuing studies on magic, folklore and mythology throughout history.

10. The Girls I’ve Been by Tess Sharpe

And last, but not least, a more fun fiction book. Gotta get in some YA before the year ends.

What are you hoping to read before the end of the year?


  1. Good luck on your Anne rereading. It’s wonderful to revisit a whole series after years away, especially one you know you’ll enjoy. This one’s on my series-reread bucket list.

    I’ve been trying to be better about jotting down the reason I add books to my TBR as soon as I add them — either as a draft of my review or in the private notes on Goodreads. It takes some extra steps so it’s very inconsistent, but it’s so worth it a month later when I’m already like “what the heck is this.”
