Bookish Item| 24 Books to Read in 2024 Part 1

I’m very bad at following TBRs, but there are so many books on my shelves that I’m excited to read, but just haven’t gotten around to. One of my goals next year is to really tackle my physical books. So I’ve decided to make a 24 books to read in 2024 list. I’ll make this a two part list though, because 24 books in one post is a bit much! So let’s take a look at the first of the 24 books I want to read next year.

What If You & Me – Roni Loren

I read Yes & I Love You in October 2022 and loved that book! Why I haven’t picked up What If You & Me is beyond me. I loved this author’s writing and after meeting Andi in the first book, I’m excited for her story. I even have the third book in this trilogy and I have an eARC of Roni’s next book releasing in March of next year. It’s time to read more by her.

A River Enchanted – Rebecca Ross

After loving Divine Rivals recently, I’ve decided I need to get to more books by Rebecca Ross. I have the Illumicrate edition of A River Enchanted, so that seems like a good place to start. This seems to be like a mystery fantasy and I’ve heard amazing things about it.

See You Yesterday – Rachel Lynn Solomon

Rachel Lynn Solomon has become one of my favorite authors and I love that she writes both YA and adult books. I’ve had See You Yesterday on a few blog posts this year, but still haven’t gotten around to reading this Groundhog Day scenario.

Take a Hint, Dani Brown – Talia Hibbert

Take a Hint, Dani Brown is another book that I should’ve read years ago. I read and loved the first book in this series in 2019. Get a Life, Chloe Brown was so good and I want to know more about the other Brown sisters. This also has my favorite romance trope: fake dating!

Twisted Games – Ana Huang

Twisted Love was a great start to a series and I really want to continue with that series. Twisted Games is a bodyguard romance and sounds like one I’ll love. Bridget was an interesting character that we met in the first book and I’m curious about her.

Electric Idol – Katee Robert

The Dark Olympus series a popular one in the romance community and I finally read Neon Gods a few months ago. I actually ended up loving it a lot more than I expected, so I got the sequel, Electric Idol. This is going to be a ten book series I believe and the first five are out, so I can read a few of these back to back to catch up. Electric Idol is a Psyche and Eros retelling.

Girl, Goddess, Queen – Bea Fitzgerald

Girl, Goddess Queen is a Hades and Persephone re-imagining and after hearing the author talk about it when I got to meet her in October made me even more excited. Retellings are fun, but it’s even more interesting when the authors give a known story a little extra twist.

Bunny – Mona Awad

Bunny is a book I’ve seen around a lot and have heard quite a few people talk about. All I know is that this book is “weird” and has an unexpected ending. It’s time for me to find out what Bunny is all about.

Delicious Monsters – Liselle Sambury

I became a fan of this author after reading the Blood Like Magic duology. Horror isn’t my go to genre, but I love the idea of this book being about/in a mysterious mansion. Delicious Monsters is also described as a psychological thriller, so I’m very excited to read this story.

Ink Blood Sister Scribe – Emma Torzs

When I read about Ink Blood Sister Scribe I was sold when I saw that our main characters have to guard their family’s library of magical books. There also seems to be quite a few secrets and betrayal going on, so I have a feeling it’s going to be an intense read.

Winterwood – Shea Ernshaw

The synopsis was what had me wanting to read this book. A boy, who is believed to be missing, emerges from the magical woods and falls in love with a witch. This witch apparently wants to unravel his secrets. Winterwood seems like a perfect book for a rainy day.

All Rhodes Lead Here – Mariana Zapata

Mariana Zapata is an author I still haven’t read anything by, but I have been wanting to for years. I finally own a book by her and All Rhodes Lead Here sounds amazing. I’m a fan of small town romances. I’ve heard this author is the queen of slow burn romances, so it’s time to see if that’s true.


So here are the first 12 books of the 24 books to read in 2024. Have you read any of these? Which book should I start with? Or do you have a list of books like this? What do you want to read? Let me know in the comments. I’d love to hear from you.
