You start every year with the best of intentions. Some of us like to make lists with books that we’d like to get to that year or at least have some of those in our head. But then real life gets in the way and other commitments (review copies, readalongs, buddy reads) and these books keep getting pushed back. And when you do have the time, you are not in the mood.
I don’t think I’m the only one who struggles with the above sometimes. Some things just always get in the way. Which is what happened with the below books. This is being written for Top Ten Tuesday (the weekly meme, as always, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl).
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
>> I mean to read this in the Fall and even had it taken out of the library but my depression hit pretty hard at the time. I decided that it wasn’t going to be the best time to read it. Some day!
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
>> With the third book taking forever I’ve decided to wait until that one is out before I start reading the series.
The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson
>> I have no excuse except that it is just so huge.
The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell
>> I don’t know why I keep putting off grabbing this book. I think I’m also dissapointed it didn’t turn out to be a standalone as I had hoped.
The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang
>> This book just has to many triggers for my current mental health. But I do really want to read it.
The City of Brass by S.A Chakraborthy
>> Another one I just keep putting off. I think I fear not loving it.
The Awakening by Amanda Stevens
>> I think it is because I was a little out of these books when it released AND it is the conclusion. I am fearful…
Child of a Hidden Sea by A.M. Dellamonica
>> This isn’t even that big. I think I suspect I’ll want the next book right away and these are so expensive. #cry
Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett
>> Every year I tell myself that this will be the year and yet, nope.
Wyrd Sisters by Terry Pratchett
>> This is just the case of my mental health and because of that having a harder time focusing which one needs with Pratchett.
