Top 5 Wednesday: Books You Want to Read Before the End of the Year

.
 
Hello! Back again with another Top 5 Wednesday post! This week's topic is not necessarily new, because I've done several posts that are similar to this one. That's why this time around I will carefully choose the books that I really want to read before this year ends. Usually, I pick book series that I'm really interested in; but this time I will choose 5 standalone books that I'm dying to read very soon—hopefully before the year ends. So here they are!

The first one is this book by Neil Gaiman. I've only read one Neil Gaiman book so far, The Ocean at the End of the Lane, and that one was pretty weird for me personally. That's why I really want to give Neil Gaiman another try just to see if I'll be able to enjoy his writing a lot more. Especially because this one talks about Norse mythology which I'm really curious about πŸ˜†.
Fredrik Backman's books have extremely good ratings on Goodreads, which makes me want to try reading one of his works. The first one that I've heard about was A Man Called Ove, and of course I want to read that one as well, but I really want to start with this book first. The reviews for this book are mostly positive too.

This book has been sitting on my shelf for too long, so I thought it's time to finally pick it up this year. It's a historical fiction with a little bit of mystery mixed into the story. I can't wait to start reading it soon 😊.
I first heard about this one from a fellow book-blogger and decided to buy it several years ago, and I still haven't read it to this day πŸ˜‚. This one also has incredible ratings and reviews on Goodreads. It also won the 2013 Newberry Medal, so I think this will be a great book to read.
The last one is also a book that's been sitting on my shelf collecting dust for several years now πŸ˜‚. This year I really want to finally read this book, because I heard a lot of good things about it and it's even been adapted into a movie already. When I finished reading this book, I might go and watch the movie as well. Can't wait!


 
Those are the books that I really want to read before the end of this year. What are some of the books you want to read before 2018 ends? There's only 6 months left! Hopefully I can keep up with this promise πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.
