Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Shanah @ The Bionic Book Worm. Since the T5W seems to be MIA, and since this particular topic inspired me (I do love talking about books I want to read), I decided that I would give it a go at least for this week!
And without further ado, here are five 2019 releases that I didn’t get to (and witsh that I had… who knows, there is still time!)
Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo
I have felt a new surge of love for Leigh Bardugo when I read King of Scars (this book was amazing, duh) so of course I immediately added Ninth House to my TBR, and I keep hearing fantastic things about it. Hopefully I get to read it soon, because I’m really excited about it!
Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell
I feel like I have already mentioned several times how much I wanted to read this book, and yet I still have to pick it up. Despite the fact that I accidentally received two copies of it, it desperately remains unread, and this is quite upsetting. What am I waiting for? I honestly don’t know.
Children of Virtue and Vengeance by Tomi Adeyemi
I actually have a proper excuse when it comes to this one, because it was just released at the beginning of the month, and I have been pretty busy. Nevertheless, I absolutely loved the first book in the series, and I cannot wait to pick up the sequel. I might actually end up reading it before the end of the year… There’s still three weeks left after all!
Crier’s War by Nina Varela
This book was one of the picks in the October Owlcrate box, and I’ve been meaning to pick it up ever since… I even heard many great things about it, and I have to admit that I am really curious. There is simply no excuse for not having read it yet.
There’s Something About Sweetie by Sandhya Menon
And finally, another book that was on my list of “Top 5 most anticipated releases for 2019“. I desperately want to read it, as I LOVED When Dimple Met Rishi. But just like the four other unread books on this list, it is still waiting for me to pay attention to it. Why am I like this… This is what happens when I make (somewhat) TBR lists. I just don’t read the books, and then I’m like
Before I delve into the waves of despair that all of my unread books bring down on me, I just wanted to say that I am DELIGHTED to see that Daisy Jones & The Six has won the Goodreads Award for Historical Fiction. It is also no surprise to see The Wicked King on the list for YA Fantasy! As for the rest, except for Pumpkinheads which was adorable, I haven’t read them yet.
Honorary mention for this top: Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston… Now that I have seen it twice on the Awards list, I want to read it even more, as it seems right up my alley! But enough about the never ending list of books I would like to read. Thank you so much for reading, and I hope you have a wonderful end of the year!
