Hello Story-Tellers! Can you believe we only have a little over a month left until 2019 is fetch status but a real thing?
Yeah I know, I’m shocked too. But with this news in mind, I started thinking about the books I have read and haven’t read so far, and realized there are a few that have been on my TBR this entire year, that I promised myself I would read in 2018…and…haven’t yet. So in complete, Sam like fashion, I then said:
What books am I most ashamed I haven’t gotten to yet?
This is that list.
City of Glass by Cassandra Clare
So, as you can see, I have a confession to make. I haven’t read anything past City of Ashes in the Mortal Instruments series. So, see–what had happened was, I was reading this in high school, and I was taking AP English, and we had to read Moby Dick. Well ya girl stopped reading the series so she could focus on that, and by the time I was done, I got distracted by something else, and that snowballed into me completely forgetting to go back to this series; and being the mood reader that I am– every time I had the time to sit down and read the book, I was never in the mood.
I know….what a time.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J. K. Rowling
I have been putting this off for the longest time, because I honestly just don’t want to see my faves die ( I like spoilers and its 2018, I know everyone that croaks in this). There is no other reason apart from that. But Harry X-mas to me, cause ya girl will be finishing this franchise before the new year strikes. This will be a thing.
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
I have been trying to read this book since August of this year, and every time I go to read this, I get distracted by another book or I have a bunch of ARCs I need to read first. I swear, I have read the first thirty pages of this book at least 9 times. BUT I AM DETERMINED TO FINISH THIS BOOK BEFORE 2019 OR SO HELP ME BE HERCULES!
This is getting done.
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
Okay for this one, I DNF’ed it with the thought of coming back to it again. I listened to this on audio while I was still in Uni, and I could not for the love of everything pure and holy connect with the narrator and the world he was telling to me. I got bored with this story really quickly, as you can see, and decided to put it away until I could read it, and try my hand that way instead. I’m hoping that this will be the year for that!
Down Among the Sticks and Bones by Seanan McGuire
I read the first book in this series and absolutely ADORED it, and I was planning to read the follow-up right after, however, like the other books on this list– in true Sam fashion– I got super distracted and never got around to reading it. But alas! this shall be the year of redemption!
What books do you want to read before 2019?
