Top Ten Books I’m On The Fence About Reading

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 2018. It’s all about love of lists, love of literature and bringing bookish people together. 

This week’s list are the books that we’re on the fence about reading. I have a few of these! Ha.

As ever, book images go to Goodreads!

The Jewel (The Lone City, #1)

I used to really want to read this book but I’ve heard a few things that have put me off.

Water for Elephants

I have wanted to read this book for a long time! I think I’m nervous I won’t like it.

Easy (Contours of the Heart, #1)

I’m not a massive fan of this genre, but I’ve heard good things. I’m torn!

Half-Blood (Covenant, #1)

I have yet to read this series. I’m not sure whether it would be for me or not.

The Girl of Fire and Thorns (Fire and Thorns, #1)

Pretty sure that this book has made numerous appearance on my blog, but I STILL haven’t made time for it.

Incarnate (Newsoul, #1)

Hm. I used to really be into this sort of read, but I’m not anymore.

City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1)

I know this series is massively popular but I’m not sure it’s for me.

Beautiful Disaster (Beautiful, #1)

I’ve heard very mixed things about this book so I’m really on the fence about reading it.

Into the Dim (Into the Dim, #1)

I was originally really excited about reading this book, but I’m not so sure about it now.

Empire of Storms (Throne of Glass, #5)

I’m not sure I want to continue the Throne Of Glass series. I started this book but felt pretty ‘meh’ about it.

What do you think about my selection? Are there any of your favourites that you want to root for? Let me know!

Top Ten Books I’m Looking Forward To In The First Half of 2019!

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 2018. It’s all about love of lists, love of literature and bringing bookish people together. 

This week’s list is our most anticipated releases for the first half of 2019. Now, I have to admit, I haven’t really looked into books in 2019 yet! I’m trying to keep up with my backlist, but it’s a struggle I tell you- a struggle!

Here are the books I’ve come up with (book image goes to Goodreads!)

The Similars (The Similars, #1)

This book sounds very intriguing. It looks like it’ll be part of a series too, which is interesting! It’s been a while since I’ve read a sci-fi esque book.

Girls with Sharp Sticks

I’m intrigued to read another book by Suzanne Young. It’s been a while since I’ve read a book by her. This sounds very dystopian!

Again, But Better

I thought I recognised the author’s name! This is Polandbananasbooks (A well knownYoutuber) novel! I’m excited to see what this book is like.

These Witches Don't Burn

I like witchy books and this is a witchy book!

99 Percent Mine

I still need to read The Hating Game but I’m aiming to do that soon!

Fame, Fate, and the First Kiss

Love Kasie West! It doesn’t take much for her to appear on my lists. She’s one of my favourite contemporary ‘fluff’ writers.

The Bride Test

I like the sounds of this book! Again, I need to read a book from the author- The Kiss Quotient- but I’ve heard good things about that one.

There's Something About Sweetie

I enjoyed When Dimple Met Rishi, so I’m looking forward to reading this one (again, need catch up with her prior release!)

Famous in a Small Town

This book just sounds sweet and I like a sweet read!

Stain

A.G. Howard always has such stunning covers! I’m looking forward to reading this book. It sounds fabulous. It’s inspired by The Princess and The Pea.

What are you looking forward to reading this year?

They Both Die at the End

This was a beautiful read. I didn’t want it to end because I knew what was going to happen at the end. It was a really incredible read. I love Adam Silvera’s writing.

Bad Romance

Another fantastic writer here. Heather Demetrios is amazing. I highly recommend her books. This one was heavy going but so worth the read.

A List of Cages

I’d had this book on my radar and was so pleased I made time for it in 2018. I thought it was amazing. So not what I expected.

Close to Home (DI Adam Fawley, #1)

Another unexpected gem!

How to Stop Time

I love Matt Haig’s writing, if you hadn’t guessed.

I bloomin’ loved this book! 🙂 It’s hard-going but so beautifully written.

I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. I thought it was really unique.

The Creakers

I adored this book! So much so, that I’m reading it with my book club at school! 🙂
