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 19: Books I Meant to Read In 2020 but Didn’t Get To
Honestly, this post could be about 30 books long. There are that many books that I wanted to read in 2020 and didn’t get to.
But in the interest of sticking to my ‘top ten’ for Tuesday, I’ve picked ten that I really wish I’d got to last year and that I’m going to do my best to pick up this year.
Look at all these beauties. All fantasy. All exciting. All unread by me in 2020. The shame.
I have physical copies of Jade City, Cinderella is Dead, Girl, Serpent, Thorn and Dangerous Remedy and because they’re sitting there, eyeballing me from my shelves, I’m determined to try and pick them up this year.
The Gilded Ones doesn’t actually release in the UK until February 2021, but I’ve had an e-ARC from Netgalley that I wanted to get to in autumn and…didn’t. So I’m 100% going to try and read it this month or next.
Expectation: I’ve preordered the audiobook of The Silvered Serpents, so I’ll start it the week it releases
Reality: I still haven’t read it.
The same can be said for Felix and I Wish You All the Best. I was gifted both of these for my birthday and I thought I’d start them immediately after and read them over summer. But somehow. SOMEHOW. I didn’t manage to get to them at all in 2020. Shaking my head at myself.
I also thought I would read Legendborn and Something To Talk About very soon after their releases, but it was another case of ‘too many books, too little time’.
Which books did you plan to read in 2020 and then didn’t get to? Do you find yourself reading a book when you planned to, or do you sometimes not get to it until months after?
