I haven’t done a Top Ten Tuesday in a while, mostly because I feel like I’ve done a version of the past few topics previously so instead of following this week’s topic, settings I’d love to visit, I’m doing something different.
Each year we’re fortunate enough to have a plethora of amazing books coming out and the hype about certain books is so much that it makes me not want to read them while everyone is loosing their minds around me. It sounds weird, not wanting to read a book that’s so good no one can shut up about it, but such is the mind of a bookworm.. when I see a book everywhere, I lose interest only to read it a few years later and punch myself in the face for being stupid. So, here are a few books I wanted to read so bad but they were dominating social media so much that I kind of lost interest in them. #ShameOnMe
All of these books have been at the top of reading lists this year, even ACOTAR which is not a new book and I keep seeing Rhysand everywhere, I’ll get to meet him at some point, might take a few years by the look of it but I will meet him. When Dimple Met Rishi, The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue, The Both Die At The End and The Hate U Give were my most anticipated books of the year that I didn’t read. Because I suck at this. And because they were everywhere, by their release days I was over the hype. I hope I’ll be inspired to read them in 2018, preferably before some of these make it on the big screen.
Words on Bathroom Walls, The Arsonist, Eliza and her Monsters and The Wicker King are my newest additions, they have the best covers, I mean The Arsonist is just pure art and Eliza and her Monsters is so freaking cute I cannot. But, again, I didn’t read any of them because reasons.
In summary: I suck at this.
Hopefully, after a huge TBR clean up, I will be able to read more books from my TBR in 2018 and finally, finally meet Rhysand and Monty.
Do you have any books on your TBR you thought you’d read this year but didn’t? pleasesayyespleasesayyespleasesayyes🙏
