TOP TEN TUESDAY : Books I Meant To Read In 2018 But Didn’t Get To

I’m back to doing doing TTT after two weeks. I just had to do this topic! Gotta give add that extra layer of guilt any chance I get. I feel like I have a gazillion books I meant to read but didn’t get to in 2018. So it’ll be hard to narrow it down to just 10. But let’s try anyway.

For anyone who doesn’t know, Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the amazing That Artsy Reader Girl.


The Great Alone : Okay. I’ll be honest. I did start it and read a few pages. But something came up that kept me busy for a few days. I have yet to pick it up again. Sigh.


Children of Blood And Bone : I might be one of the very rare few who have still not read the book. I disappoint myself.


Circe : Everything about this book appeals to me – the cover, the genre, the premise. But I found out about this book very late and I just couldn’t for some reason get to read it. I hope to amend that soon, though.


The Seven And A Half Deaths Of Evelyn Hardcastle : This one was just a case of laziness on my part. I haven’t heard one bad thing about this book. But I know that I’ll be reading this soon enough, after I can get done with the backlog with my ARCs.


A Reaper At The Gates: I had planned to re-read the first two before starting this one. But I just couldn’t get myself to start the series again. Ergo this one’s still unread.




The Hate U Give: I don’t know what is it that really stops me from starting this book. This is a book that I meant to read in 2017 and I didn’t. I then intended to read it in 2018 and I didn’t. I intend to read it in 2019 too. Will this finally be the year? I certainly hope so!


Becoming: I don’t normally get tempted by non-fiction easily. But Becoming is one book that I just feel like I HAVE to get my hands in. It released in late-2018 and it was a non-fiction. I already had a lot of fictions to finish from my TBR to make time for this. But I see myself starting it soon enough.


The Name Of The Wind: Another book I don’t know why I couldn’t make myself start. I know I’m gonna like it. So what’s stopping me?


The City Of Brass: I started this book back in 2017 but couldn’t finish it because I got entangled in some family drama. And then although I wanted to pick it up the next year, it just kept evading my mind. I am sure that I’m gonna love this book. I just need to get into the mood to start it.


Truly Devious: Good news is that I’ve just recently started the book. So, 2019 might just be the year!
