Top 10 | Books I Meant to Read This Year, But Didn’t…

To be honest, this could be a long list since my reading hasn’t been up there this year, but I’m capping it at 10.

Ninth House

41tToJzlKTL._SX327_BO1,204,203,200_I was anticipating this book so much that when I actually got it, I didn’t want to read it. A lot of people had also mentioned a lot of trigger warnings which also made me a little cautious, but it’s Bardugo and I still want to read it.

The Beholder

36558159._SY475_When I went to YALC this was one of the books I knew I wanted and I went straight for it, but I haven’t read it yet. Unfortunately I got it when I was in the middle of a few blog tours and just didn’t have the time to get to it.

The Extinction Trials: Exile

51j90xGjXeL._SX325_BO1,204,203,200_Pretty sure I got this book not long after it came out and intended to read it straight away so I didn’t forget where I was in the trilogy, as you can probably tell, that didn’t happen.

Olivia Twist

34817232This book has been on my TBR for a couple of years now and I only just got it at YALC this year, but similar to The Beholder it was bad timing.

Serpent and Dove

40024139Why did I miss this book? It was one of my most anticipated releases and yet when it came out it went straight past me. Seeing people speak quite highly of it is just making me want it more and unlike every other book on this list, I don’t actually own this one.

We Hunt the Flame

41080833This is my only unread ARC and is the only thing keeping my NetGalley from 100%. I did start it but only got a few chapters in before giving up and reading something else. I’m hoping to give it another go at some point.

Isle of Blood and Stone

35721243I received this one for Christmas last year and I still haven’t read it. I am ashamed. I thought about it a few times, but it just didn’t happen.

Sawkill Girls

y648I’ve meant to read this so many times over the last year, I’ve even had a bookmark in it ready to go and then read something else.


26856502I honestly can’t believe I still haven’t read this. I was so excited when it came out, but maybe the excitement got the better of me. I also wanted to reread Vicious before but I’ve never gotten round to that either.


36576048This has been on my TBR as long as Sawkill Girls has probably. I started it last year but only managed to get a few chapters in.

I set my reading challenge at 45 for 2019 and I thought this would be achievable since I read 56 in 2018. But life hit hard. I wasn’t too bad at the beginning of the year, but I hit a serious slump in the middle and never fully recovered and my first semester of Uni was so exhausting. November was the first month in three years where I didn’t read a single book and December hasn’t been great either. With that being said, I have a couple of anticipated releases coming out in the beginning of 2020 which will hopefully get me fully back into the swing of things.

  1. Vengeful and Olivia Twist would be two of my books as well. Oh well, maybe 2020 will be the year we both finally read them.
