Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday : Books I Meant To Read In 2018 But Didn’t Get To


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.

Today’s prompt is for my top ten books I meant to read in 2018 but didn’t get to! Oh how this list could just go on and on for ages. I added so many new books to my TBR in 2018 that I obVIOUSLY was going to read in 2018 and then before I knew it it was 2019.. like, what? The year is already over? It still feels like Christmas to me.. but that might also be because I still have my tree up ¯\_(ツ)_/¯  #yolo

Okay! On to my top ten for the week! (in no particular order)

Muse of Nightmares

Its predecessor Strange the Dreamer was my favorite read of 2018 so you would think I would want to immediately jump into the second book when it released in October right? WRONG. I wanted to, I really did.

I have yet to read any Brandson Sanderson books because they’re all massive and daunting, but this one seemed a little scary so I thought I would start with this one and see how I like him as an author before I read his other series! Guess I should get on that now.


Shadow of the Fox

I really really wanted to read this beautiful book! Especially when I got the exclusive cover in an Owlcrate last year! This book has been forward facing on my bookshelves displayed for the whole world to see since I got it!


Girls of Paper and Fire

This book. I have heard SO many great things about this book. I don’t know HOW or even WHY I haven’t picked this up yet.



Another one that I don’t know how I haven’t read it because I’m so excited for the sequel! Like, how can I be excited for a sequel when I haven’t even read the first book!??



I read the first two books early last year in a matter of days, and then just.. never picked up the third one? I don’t know? I have literally no good reason for this one because the Illuminae audiobooks are still my favorites ever.


As She Ascends

I really enjoyed Before She Ignites so I was very excited to get the sequel anddddd then I didn’t read it. As is the theme of this post.


Onyx & Ivory

This one has the creepiest and also most alluring cover. I need to read this soon, especially before book two comes out. Also, I have the beautiful Fairyloot edition with black sprayed pages!


A Reaper at the Gates

My heart is still not ready for this.


The Name of the Wind

So I bought the 10th anniversary edition of The Name of the Wind without having ever read it!?? Yes, yes I did. I have no regrets.


The prompt this week has given lots of feels about how much I have been slacking with books I really want to read. Honestly though, I’ve been on an audiobook binge lately and I keep finding other books that are just, quicker reads. I don’t know, hopefully I will pick all of these up soon!

  1. I’ve been meaning to buy and read Furyborn, it was one of my most anticipated releases of the year but I’ve never got around to purchasing it, let alone reading it.


      1. That’s me with Empire of Storms, I pre-ordered it 2015, and I never got around to reading it. Now I’m in the middle of doing a gradual reread of the first four books so I can continue.

      2. Oh my gosh! I did that with Tower of Dawn lol, I just read it for the first time when I did my reread before Kingdom of Ash came out!
