Ten Books I Meant To Read In 2018 But Didn’t Get Around 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 2018. It’s all about love of lists, love of literature and bringing bookish people together. 

This week we’re looking at 10 books that we intended to read in 2018 but didn’t get around to. As ever, book images go to Goodreads.

When The Curtain Falls

I am intrigued by this book because I’ve heard really mixed reviews. Hopefully I’ll get around to it soon!

People Like Us

Oh my goodness. I’ve mentioned wanting to read this for so long now. I need to make it a priority really.

Sam & Ilsa's Last Hurrah

I really like David Levithan, so goodness knows why I haven’t got around to this yet.

The Dangerous Art of Blending In

I need to get to this book. I’ve had it for long enough…

Magic Under Stone (Magic Under, #2)

This one is coming up soon for me! I have to do it.

The Visitor

I really need to start reading K.L. Slater. I’ve heard so many wonderful things about this author.

Where the Missing Go

I love a good thriller and I intended to read this in December! I might get to it this month though.

The Fear

This is the only C.L. Taylor book that I haven’t read yet, I need to read it!

The Careful Undressing of Love

I adore this cover. I really liked the sound of this when I came across it in 2017, but I’m yet to read it.

Words on Bathroom Walls

This book really appealed me because I enjoy reading books about mental health. I hope to try and read it this year.

What did you intend to read in 2018 but didn’t get around to? Have you read any of these books? Let me know!

Top Ten Book Covers That Make Me Hungry!

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list is a food related prompt. I was stuck with what to do with this one, but I’ve come up with covers that make me particularly hungry! So here we are…

I haven’t necessarily read all of these books, but I have read most of them. Either way, the covers made me hungry.

Tell Me Three Things

I want to read this book and eat the yumminess on the cover!

The Ice Cream Girls

This may just have food in the title, but its cover reminds me of Neapolitan ice cream which is a favourite. Mmm.

The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake

I didn’t enjoy this book as much as I love lemon cake!

Skinny

I’m sensing a ‘sweet’ theme to my list this week. I do love a sweet treat. This book isn’t an easy read though. It’s about a battle with anorexia.

Peeled

I haven’t read this book, but I adore the cover!

Bittersweet

The cover looks good enough to eat! I loved the story too.

The Shadow of the Pomegranate (Tudor Saga, #3)

I adore Tudor stories and this one was no exception. The fruit on the cover makes me crave a pomegranate!

Love & Gelato

I wanted gelato and wanted to go to Italy after this!

Boy Meets Boy

This makes me want to eat Lovehearts!

The Careful Undressing of Love

I’ve heard great things about this book which I really want to read. I love this cover.
