Top 10 Books I Need to Read Before 2019

tuesday top 10s final

in case you didnt know, i read a lot, like a lot, and sometimes i feel like ‘yeah i’m not doing too bad at this reading thing. sure my life is a mess and my social skills are lacking but this reading thing, yeah i totally got this’

. . . that is . . . until i look to my tbr and see how many HIGHLY ANTICIPATED BOOKS I STILL HAVENT READ

– cue existential crisis –

so in attempts to ‘pull my life together,’ i’ve compiled a list of the top 10 books i need to bloody read before 2019

someone needs to hold me to my word, like maybe punch me if i dont have this done, thanks you’re a hero

i have next to no idea what this series is about and the only book i’ve read from patrick ness was a Monster Calls, however, the ratings are high and everyone loves it and its been sitting on my tbr since i was born so why not?

i’m not a huge fan of claudia gray’s previous series. it was good but didn’t impress me beyond that. however, i hear this series is way better and i like to get my hopes up just so i can get disappointed

i know nothing about this book i feel like this should become my motto

but the cover model looks like a princess who knows how to kick butt, my aesthetic

i’m “currently” reading this book yeah right, im a liar, i’ve only read one chapter in the past 2 weeks but that’s not the point, the point is that everyone that reads this series propels themselves into the sun and i wanna join the party

    Okay, yes, it’s rather tropey, but it still works?? Well, at least for me it did. I did like the first 2 books better than the last (my fav book being the 2nd). I’ve actually read the first 2 books like 3 times now and I enjoyed them each time 😀

    And I so feel ya on Before She Ignites! And oh wait, I also still need to read The Diviners series too! Legit, even my writing professor at college recommended The Diviners series and she like never reads YA/fantasy books!

    And you can do it! You can get these books read! I believe in you! 🙂

    1. IM SO GLAD YOU LOVED THEM omg you reread like 3 times what a queen. this is giving me hope that i’ll enjoy them more BUT HONESTLY I JUST WANNA READ ABOUT THE PLOT TWIST IN BOOK 1

      lol, so many books how are we ever gonna keep up. wow really? honestly havent heard anything but raving about that series, we nEED TO GET A MOVE ON!

      thank youuuuu ❤


      1. Bahaha I kept reading them so many times because I first read them before the 3rd book was out, and then when I went reread them to complete the series, I fell into a reading slump and still didn’t finish the trilogy. I reread them last in July and finally completed the series so I could read Dance of Thieves!

        But yesss, I really hope you enjoy them when you read them. Omg yesss book 1 is so fun because in addition to Lia’s perspective, you get the perspectives of a prince and assassin, but the author doesn’t tell you right away which is which and it’s so much fun trying to figure out who is who!

        And yess, so many books! I kind of wish sleep wasn’t a thing so we would have more time in the day to read (but I also love sleep and napping so maybe scratch that).

        And yesss, we really need to get on this series, ahhhhh


    Sorry. I had to scream because I recently read this book and I LOVEED IT so much, the rep was fantastic and overall it was an amazing, brilliant book!! ❤ I hope you'll read itttttt.
    I have read The Knife of Never Letting Go and, to be honest…I was a little disappointed 😦 I feel like the black sheep, but something just, didn't click. I hope you'll like it though 😀

  4. Great post May!! I hope you get to read at least half of these before 2019 comes 😂💕 (but omg there’s only like three more months left of 2018…wtf)

    I also want to read more of Taylor Jenkins Reid’s books, especially after how much I loved The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo 😍 I also really need to read The Hate U Give and Six of Crows before 2019, given how much everyone loves those books!! Ahhh so many books and so little time, ugh :’)

  6. i ALSO have a copy of kiss of deception and still haven’t read it??? which i would add to my mental 10 books to get to by the end of the year list except uh…i don’t do well with TBRs and then at the end of the year i’d just be embarrassed

  8. Wow SAME to nearly all of these. i tried to read The Knife of Never Letting Go but I DNF’ed it because it was so boring and HEFTY if that makes sense. I’ve put a hold on The Diviners in my library and I’m SO excited. Ahem. I love posts like these because it’s so relatable and I feel less alone because OTHER PEOPLE ALSO HAVEN’T READ ALL THOSE HYPED BOOKS TOO.

  10. I read Before She Ignites and didn’t really like it. The main character simply.. got on my nerves and I found the “evolution” she went through lacking. It felt more like a “first she’s this way, then she’s that way” kind of thing to me. Could’ve been me at that time though!
    Defy The Stars is on my TBR but.. no clue when I’ll read it. Honestly, right now I just want to read all those sequels I’ve been anticipating for SO LONG and still haven’t read. [Wildcard, Escaping from Houdini and Kingdom of Ash being the top three to read this year] Apart from that I really want to read Lifel1k3 and Ace of Shades as well. We’ll see how it goes, though. 😛

    Happy reading and good luck reading all these before the year’s over!
