Top Ten Tuesday- Books I meant to read in 2018 but didn’t get to

Hello everyone! It’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday. Today, I’ll be listing 10 books I meant to read in 2018 but didn’t get to. In all honesty, there were loads but these are the books that I wanted to read the most:

(1) Circe by Madeline Miller

I love mythology so I obviously wanted to read Circe but I just didn’t get round to it last year. However, it was at the top of my tbr list for 2019 and I’ve read it now!

(2) The Stone Sky by N.K Jemisin

I loved The Fifth Season and The Obelisk Gate but for some reason I didn’t read The Stone Sky. I’m not really sure why…

(3) Fire Falling by Elise Kova (and the rest of the Air Awakens series)

I liked Air Awakens and I think it has potential as a series (also I’ve heard loads of good things about it). I kept wanting to continue the series and I kept forgetting.

(4) Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik

Uprooted was amazing and I really wanted to delve into the world of Spinning Silver last year, but I never got to.

(5) Smoke in the Sun by Renée Ahdieh

I read Flame in the Mist in 2017 and I still haven’t got around to its sequel!

(6) Furyborn by Claire Legrand

Furyborn just sounds like it will be so cool. Hopefully, I’ll read it this year!

(7) The Fall of Gondolin by JRR Tolkien, Christopher Tolkein

I’m a giant Tolkien fan so I definitely need to read this at some point.

(8) Mirage by Somaiya Daud

This own-voices book inspired by Morocco sounds amazing and I can’t wait to read it!

(9) The Wicker King by K. Ancrum

I’ve heard so many good things about this book and I heard it talks about mental illness. I wanted to read it in 2018 but never got round to it.

(10) The Map of Salt and Stars by Jennifer Zeynab Joukhadar

This novel sounds amazing. It’s about two girls living 800 years apart. One is a Syrian refugee and the other is an adventurer apprenticed to a mapmaker. I really hope I get to read it this year!

Which books did you want to read last year but never got to?

    1. Thanks! I have, in fact, gotten around to Circe already this year and I absolutely adored it. It’s definitely one of my favourite books of all time. I hope I love Spinning Silver as much as I loved Circe.
