TTT: Books I Meant to Read In 2018 but Didn’t Get To

ttt

Top Ten Tuesday was 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.

It astounds me to think that I could read 200 books and still have a pile of “I meant to get to this sooner,” But I do and that’s what today’s list is all about!

In An Absent Dream review

91lsoao515lIn An Absent Dream
by Seanan McGuire
Book 4 of the Wayward Children Series
publication date: January 8th, 2019
191 pages
my rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Synopsis via Goodreads
This is the story of a very serious young girl who would rather study and dream than become a respectable housewife and live up to the expectations of the world around her. As well she should.

When she finds a doorway to a world founded on logic and reason, riddles and lies, she thinks she’s found her paradise. Alas, everything costs at the goblin market, and when her time there is drawing to a close, she makes the kind of bargain that never plays out well.

For anyone . . .


My thoughts

I’ve really enjoyed this series, the releases have been ones that I look forward to every year and I never want them to end. I have a pure love for all the portal magic and the thought that your perfect world is out there.

ABC Challenge: V

Memorable titles beginning with the letter V

Vicious
by V.E. Schwab

Not my first VE Schwab novel but one of my top faves, I loved how dark this story was and the story felt like a maze to me, there were twists and turns that left me guessing until the very end.

Voyager
by Diana Gabaldon

This one has been on my mind lately because I just finished marathoning season 3 of Outlander, and I think it’s my favorite adaptation so far, it felt true to the book. While it was more melodramatic than the first season I was 100% there for it.

Vampire Academy
by Richelle Mead

I remember feeling reluctant to start this series but I’m so glad I took a chance on it because I enjoyed it so much, I loved the boarding school setting and Rose is one of my favorite characters while Dimitri is one of my favorite book boyfriends.

TBR Titles beginning with the letter V

The Valient
by Lesley Livingston

Vengeance Road
by Erin Bowman

Vengeful
by V.E. Schwab

5-star predictions

These are some of my predicted 5 stars reads for 2019. I wish I had been able to read these in 2018 like I had tentatively planned to do but this way I get to start 2019 on a great foot!

The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin

Vengeful by V.E. Schwab

Lifelike by Jay Kristoff

Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman

Furyborn by Clair Legrand

With the exception of Legrand and Jemisin, I feel like these are pretty easy choices because I already know that I like previous books that I’ve read from Kristoff, Schwab, and Gaiman.

WWW Wednesdays

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World Of Words. Simply answer the following questions:

What did you recently finish reading?

What are you currently reading?

What do you think you’ll read next?


Its finally happened.
I finally burnt out and while it’s not as brutal as I thought it would be, it still sucks. I don’t like feeling this way and I’m not sure what to do to help myself recharge. Despite that, I have read a couple of books that I loved so I’ll get into that now.

TTT: Books that have been on my TBR the longest

Top Ten Tuesday was 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.

For today’s Top Ten Tuesday I’m going to talk about some books that have been on my TBR the longest. I’m feeling pretty ashamed for just how long I’ve held onto these. The original prompt was “New-to-Me Authors I Read In 2018” I’ve already posted that and you can read that post here, you know if you want.
