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!

10 Books On My Autumn TBR

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 all about books we want to get to this Autumn (Fall). I’ve decided to go for some books on my Kindle that I really do need to get around to!

As ever, click on the book image to get to the Goodreads page!

Missing Pieces

This is a book that I got after reading many reviews, as is the case for most of the books on this list!

Mine

This book has mixed reviews, but I’m still intrigued!

Only Child: An Incredibly Powerful Novel You Won't Be Able to Put Down

I am intrigued by this book which centres around the aftermath of a school shooting.

The Fear

I’m up to date with C.L Taylor’s books after this one!

The Foster Child: 'a sleep-with-the-lights-on thriller'

I remember reading wonderful reviews about this book! 🙂 Looking forward to it!

Where the Missing Go

Ooh I’ve been looking forward to this one!

The Visitor

I’m a big fan of a psychological thriller!

The Innocent Wife

I love that question of the cover. I’m intrigued. Why so scared?

Before I Let Go

I’m so nervous about reading this book because I’ve heard such mixed things.

Friend Request

I have this book waiting to be read for a while, but haven’t yet got around to it! Hopefully in Autumn.

I realise that my list is quite thriller heavy. So I don’t get a reading slump, I’ll be slipping other genres in-between these books. Fingers crossed that I get around to them!

What are you reading this Autumn/Fall? Let me know! Leave me a link and I’ll stop by!

This week it’s been my biggest book haul for a while! Oops. I was approved for quite a few books on NetGalley and I bought some books on pay day! 😉 Naughty me!

NetGalley

A Thousand Perfect Notes

I have had this book pre-ordered for quite some time now. When I was approved to read it, I was a very happy Chrissi. I have heard great things about this book already!

We Are Young

I absolutely adore Cat Clarke’s writing. I love how dark it is and how it covers important issues. Looking forward to this one!

Little Liar

I was intrigued by this book’s synopsis. It sounded like it might have a Pretty Little Liars vibe. I do see it’s rated low on Goodreads, but I’m happy to give it a go and make my own mind up! After all, it’s only got 2 ratings so far.

The Liar's Room

I really enjoyed The House by Simon Lelic. This book sounds like a fabulous thriller.

The List of Real Things

I have read Sarah Moore Fitzgerald before. I thought this book sounded like a fantastic middle grade read.

Bought

The Visitor

I have heard so many blogging friends talking about this book. I couldn’t resist!

RoseBlood

I absolutely love the covers that A.G Howard is blessed with. This is influenced by The Phantom Of The Opera, as you may guess by the cover!

Almost Love

Louise O’Neill’s writing is bloomin’ brilliant. Can’t wait to read this one.

The Girl of Ink and Stars

I have high hopes for this book which I’m reading at the end of the month as part of my kid lit challenge with my sister, Beth!
