Top Ten Tuesdays was created by The Broke and Bookish, but is now hosted weekly by That Artsy Reader Girl and anyone is free to participate! This week’s topic is books I didn’t get to in 2018. I felt like I read so much in 2018, but there were still so many books I would have liked to have read! I’m not super great at these lists, so here’s some of the backlisted items I’m really looking forward to. Let’s go!

  1. For a Muse of Fire by Heidi Heilig
    I loved The Girl From Everywhere so I was excited to hear Heiling was writing another book! The OTP in TGFE was amazing and I love that music is an integral part of the story and there’s music that goes with the book too!
  2. The Surface Breaks by Louise O’Neill
    I really wanted to read this Little Mermaid retelling from Louise O’Neill. I’ve really enjoyed all the books I’ve read by her and she does a wonderful job with commentary and character dynamics.
  3. The Astonishing Color of After by Emily X.R. Pan
    I have heard so much about this wonderul illustrious book. I read just under 20 pages of it last year but had to return it to the library because I was moving. I really hope to finish the story because I’ve heard so many wonderful things about it.
  4. An Unseen Attraction by K.J. Charles
    This book was recommended to me by Squibbles Reads on YouTube, and I held off on it because I haven’t read very many m/m romances. But I hopefully will get to this one during the year. I haven’t read a historical romance in a while and I’m dying for a good one.
  5. Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng
    Again I regretfully did not get to this one, but I swear it’ll be this year that I’ll read it. I know I definitely want to read it before the Hulu adaption comes out.
  6. Everything Belongs to Us by Yoojin Grace Weurtz
    After reading Pachinko, I’m really interested in reading some historical fiction set in places outside of the United States. I’d like to continue my reading with Everything Belongs To Us, which is set in the 80s.

What books did you not get to last year? Let me know in the comments below!
