Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together
Happy Tuesday y’all! This week’s topic is “Books I Meant to Read In 2018 but Didn’t Get To.” Because I had a bad reading year, there are SO many books that I wanted to read but didn’t get to. It was hard to narrow down to only ten books! Here are the top ten books I didn’t get to in 2018. As always, covers/titles link to blog/Goodreads/Amazon(aff) and are in no particular order.
Top Ten Books I Didn’t Get to in 2018
Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi: So I received an advanced copy of this one. Not even a digital one, but an actual physical copy. It intimidates me…just a little. However it was my most anticipated book last year and I didn’t even make the time to read it.
Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody: I don’t know why, but the first time I read the blurb for this one I immediately thought of Las Vegas 😂 Regardless of my initial thoughts, I’m intrigued and can’t believe I didn’t get to it last year.
Furyborn by Claire Legrand: First I love Legrand! Second have you read that blurb?! I’m especially intrigued by the telling of two stories in two different timelines. I need this book, why haven’t I read it yet?!
Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor: I loved Strange the Dreamer and that ending?! Argh!!!! It killed me. Somehow I missed the release date on this one. Needless to say, now that I know it is out, it’s going straight to the top of my TBR pile.
Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young: I’m a sucker for fantasy, especially when it combines some of my favorite historical aspects. This one is supposedly a little Viking-like. I’ve been looking forward to reading it for over a year. How did I let this one slip through?!
Dark Harmony by Laura Thalassa: So I’m ashamed to say I didn’t drop what I was reading to immediately pick this one up. I love Thalassa. She is one of my DEAR (Drop Everything and Read) authors. I’m fixing this NOW. I decided a reread was in order before I dove into the final book of The Bargainer series. Y’all I forgot how much I love it!!!
The Fates Divide by Veronica Roth: I read Carve the Mark earlier last year and absolutely loved it. I liked it so much that I immediately bought The Fates Divide. Yet life happened, and I still haven’t read it 🤦🏼♀️
