Books I'm Dying to Read After Graduation


After five years of required reading in college, it's safe to say that I've gotten a little burned out on reading. Which is so, so sad. But as graduation approaches I've started compiling a list of books that I absolutely can't wait to read once I have a few minutes to myself. So, I thought I'd share a few with you today. 


Soon to be a movie staring the love of my life, Leonardo DiCaprio, this book focuses on the life of H.H. Holmes, one of the world's first known serial killers. I want to read it before it becomes a movie, although I'm sure both will be great. 

2. The BFG: Roald Dahl
I am fully and completely aware that this is a children's book, and no, I don't care. I have memories of my fifth grade teacher reading this to us in class, and now Disney is coming out with the movie so I want to refresh myself before I go see it. No shame. 

3. Rainwater: Sandra Brown 
This is one that I already started about three months ago and sadly have had to put it to the side to get my other stuff done first. But I'm so in love with her writing and this will be the first one that I finish when I can. 


Because, duh. It's another Harry Potter book and I couldn't stop myself from reading it even if I wanted to. 

5. Go Set a Watchman: Harper Lee 
From what I understand, this book was a bit of a disappointment after To Kill a Mockingbird, but there's something drawing me to it and I just have to decide for myself. 

Another YA, I picked this book up at a Barnes and Noble one day because it was sitting on a table and had pictures. Really creepy, but kind of cool pictures. And I decided I needed it. Then life got in the way and I never got around to reading it, surprise surprise, and now it's becoming a Tim Burton movie. So it's high on my list of must reads. 

What books are you dying to read right now, or have you read any great ones recently? I'd love to hear your suggestions!

  1. The BFG is my favourite children's book and thankfully the new film looks like it will be a better adaptation than the last one. I have tickets to see Cursed Child in London in July and I'm so excited! I won't be reading the book until after that!

  3. You've picked so many great books! I just recently became interested in Miss Peregrine's - I've heard it's so great!

  4. The only book I've read from this list is Devil in the White City! It's very very interesting, but also incredibly hard to read. There are SO many details in the book. I gave up on it for a long time and then ended up downloading the audiobook so I could finish it. I didn't know there was a movie coming out though! It's going to be dark and twisty.
