Last year especially I got into a really bad habit of see book, want book, buy book immediately then not reading it and along with my preorders, it just doubled my already sizeable TBR. I’m trying to be a little more careful this year and I’m slowly but surely working through them and this weeks Six for Sunday prompt is a good opportunity to look at what books I brought last year and still haven’t read yet.
Legendary by Stephanie Garber
I preordered this and was just so excited to read this sequel as I really loved Caraval but I just never got around to it and I’ve heard such mixed reviews that I haven’t felt too compelled to get around to it yet. I did want to read it before Finale was released but as that’s happening next week I’m sensing it’s not going to be happening.
Unearthed by Amy Kaufman and Megan Spooner
This is an audiobook version I got with an audible credit after finishing the Illuminae series when I was trying to look more into Amy and Jay’s work, this was sold to me when I found out the narrator was Steve West who is my favourite Audiobook reader/actor.
Ghosts of the Shadow Market by Cassandra Clare
I know the physical version is out this year but I downloaded the first few stories for my Kindle last year and I still haven’t read them. I still haven’t even finished Queen of Air and Darkness yet, I think there’s just too much Shadowhunter content being released for me right now that I can’t keep up with it all.
Empress of all Seasons by Emiko Jean
I was gifted a copy by Gollancz in return for an honest review and I feel terrible that I haven’t got to it yet as it was already out when my copy arrived but this is definitely one I really want to read soon!
Mass Effect: Annihilation by Catherynne M. Valente
This was a book I brought with some of my Christmas money last year, I’ve been waiting to read it until I’ve finished the Mass Effect Andromeda game as I shouldn’t be at risk of spoilers from the game that way but being the terrible gamer I am I just haven’t finished it yet. I might play as a reward for finishing this blog post then maybe I can read it really soon!
Circe by Madeline Miller
I brought this book because it was pretty. It sounds awesome too but it takes a lot more for me to be interested in reading bigger hardbacks because I just don’t find them comfortable to read so they often get left to the side quite a lot while I read smaller hardbacks, paperbacks or Kindle books instead. I am determined to get to it eventually though as I’m not sure I know anyone who hasn’t liked it yet so its odds are good that it’ll be worth the wrist ache.
What books from 2018 have you still not read?
