Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and 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. This week’s theme is:
January 22: Books I Meant to Read In 2018 but Didn’t Get To
Oh man. There are so many books I wanted to pick up last year, but I just didn’t have time for. (If only I could read faster!) Buckle up guys, I’m about to hit you with (arguably) some of the most hyped books of 2018 that I just didn’t manage to read.
I was (and still am) SO excited for these books and I just didn’t manage to read them??? Lady’s Guide and Mirage were two of my most anticipated releases of 2018 and I didn’t make the time to pick them up. I was even lucky enough to get an ARC of Tempests and Slaughter and YALC and *whispers* I still didn’t read it. I’m the worst.
Girls of Paper and Fire was also one of my most anticipated releases of 2018, and yet here I am, going into 2019, with it unread. I asked for The Queens of Innis Lear for my birthday last year, so I’ve had a whole six months to read it, but apparently not. Same for Spinning Silver; I received a copy in May and I had all the best intentions of reading it, but it somehow slipped through the net.
I’m really sad I didn’t get to these three because they all sound right up my street. This is especially true for From Twinkle With Love, because I read When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon in 2017 and absolutely loved it, so I knew I was going to love Twinkle too. I just didn’t end up picking it up.
Which books did you miss in 2018? Are there any on this list that I should prioritise?
