There are so many new releases and backlist novels that I’m looking forward to reading this year! Here I’m sharing the 24 books I’ll be marking as “high priority” on my 2024 reading list.
At the end of each year, I begin to feel a little spark of excitement ignite beneath my skin as I start thinking about the books I’m going to pick up in the following year. When you read as voraciously as I do, it can sometimes feel overwhelming to ponder the number of books that are going to be released or the books that have been out for years that you haven’t had the chance to read yet. Sometimes I really do hope that ghost-Stephanie of the future has the ability to haunt a library so she can read all the books that weren’t picked up during my lifetime. Does anyone else feel similarly?
In 2021, I started a tradition for myself where I set a priority TBR (to be read) list with the number of books that “match” the year. This looked like 21 books in 2021, 22 books in 2022, and 23 books in 2023. Naturally, that meant that at the end of December, I began drafting my priority list of 24 books to read in 2024. These include a combination of new releases that I’m highly anticipating as well as backlist books that I’ve been meaning to read for ages and just haven’t picked up yet. Looking at my 2024 reading list is already bringing me so much joy. I can’t wait to get started!
