January 2019 TBR

Come, ye cold winds, at January’s call,
On whistling wings, and with white flakes bestrew
The earth
– John Ruskin

It’s 2019! I’m aiming to read 52 books this year, which is the same as my 2018 goal, and this TBR post contains four books that I want to read in the first month of 2019.


The Fellowship of the RingThe Fellowship of the Ring by J. R. R. Tolkien

In a sleepy village in the Shire, a young hobbit is entrusted with an immense task. He must make a perilous journey across Middle-earth to the Cracks of Doom, there to destroy the Ruling Ring of Power – the only thing that prevents the Dark Lord’s evil dominion.

The Two TowersThe Two Towers by J. R. R. Tolkien

The Company of the Ring is sundered. Frodo and Sam continue their journey alone down the great River Anduin – alone, that is, save for the mysterious creeping figure that follows wherever they go.

Thus continues the classic tale begun in The Fellowship of the Ring.

The Return of the KingThe Return of the King by J. R. R. Tolkien

The armies of the Dark Lord are massing as his evil shadow spreads even wider. Men, Dwarves, Elves and Ents unite forces to do battle against the Dark. Meanwhile, Frodo and Sam struggle further into Mordor in their heroic quest to destroy the One Ring

The SilmarillionThe Silmarillion by J. R. R. Tolkien

The story of the creation of the world and of the First Age, this is the ancient drama to which the characters in The Lord of the Rings look back and in whose events some of them, such as Elrond and Galadriel, took part.


What will you be reading in the first month of 2019?
