Books I Didn’t Read, That I Said I Would In 2018

I, like many other readers, made some rather grand reading plans in 2018…. of which I completed like 2?? *face dives into the shame corner*

BuT tHiS yeAR iS diFfErenT!! *she says with hopeful confidence*

I have many reading plans this year. Pretty BIG plans. In the sense that it will take time to complete them….

But yet….. I haven’t even finished 1 book this year so far….. and it’s a book I started last year……

There are so many distractions….. 1) I had exams, the nasty things. 2) The begining of New Years are always hectic?? Or is this just me?? 3) Me and my siblings are binge watching Game of Thrones (it’s pretty dang good) and 2am is our cut off point to stop watching….

Our sleep schedules are fine, why do you ask?

But alas. This post is about last years failures.

Let’s glare at my failures and shake our heads in shame.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl, in which bloggers and readers alike can scream together about books but in different topics each week!

Today’s prompt is: “Books I didn’t read in 2018!!!”

All covers link back to Goodreads so you guys can check them out too! All sequels will link you to the first book to avoid any spoilers! 

The List of Shame



These are only 10… there are more…. we won’t talk about them…. they might hear us.

What books did you not get round to reading last year?? Do you plan on picking them up soon? Do you have an ever feared list of books that you keep meaning to read but somehow don’t and the books grow ever more vicious over time??

Feel free to link your TTT post below! 😀

  1. I have a massive ongoing ‘tbr’ list that I haven’t decided to read at any time in particular, I’ll never finish all of them anyway on account of life being finite. I haven’t read any of the books on this list except ‘Turtles All the Way Down,’ which I really liked! I have OCD and I think it was one of the only books I’ve read that represented the disorder well.

    1. I know how you feel, I could read a hundred of the books on my tbr but I’ll always be stabbing myself in the back as I constantly add new ones that I want to read! XD
      That’s great! I’m ashamed that I still haven’t read it yet, especially if it had good OCD rep! I have OCD too and finding books where characters also suffer from it is rare, sadly even rarer still for it to be accurate rep.
      I’m glad you enjoyed it though! I’ll have to bump it up the TBR list for sure!

    1. Same. Every time I think about the amount of books I DIDN’T read, I cry a little. Here’s to reading all the books ever this year! *raises orange juice glass in a fancy manner*

    1. YES! I feel like this year is going to be an amazing reading year!! I will devour all of Laini Taylor’s books if it’s the last thing I do! I NEEEED THEM!
      Happy Reading! ❤


  2. Thank God there’s no jail for TBR failures haha! And don’t feel bad- I just finished my FIRST book of 2019 the other day, so… it happens. 🙂 Plus Game of Thrones is a good excuse.

    Okay the books. These all look pretty good, but Circe… yeah I need that one.

    1. Hahaha! If there were…. if it was judged based on how big your TBR has gotten…. we’d all be in big, big trouble!
      Game of Thrones is a great excuse! It is a great show! 😀
      Circe is so beautiful I can practically feel it stabbing me in the heart with it’s otherworldly grace XD


    1. The list of shame knows no shame….. because it throws it all in mY eYES!!!!
      ME TOO! But I keep finding new things to watch and am trying to be reasonable like, “Hmmmmm. One episode then I’ll read!” ….. who ever only watches the ONE EPISODE?!?!?
      My TBR full on growls whenever it sees me and it is most likely planning an attack! XD


    1. Right?!? It sounds like such a good read! And the cover is so beautiful!!!!!!
      AAAAAAAAAAA! We finished season 7 the other day and I. Am. WoUndED!! HOW DO I WAIT?!?!? HOW DOES ANYONE DO THAT?!?!
      Happy Reading! ❤


    1. Agreed! Strange was such a beautiful read!!! I just need to find the time to dive into Muse of Nightmares and have my feels heart slaughtered ; _ ; ….. because I feel like it’s going to hurt me like book 1 did 😥

    1. I have so much guilt for not getting to it! It’s a book about SIRENS! WHY HAVEN’T I READ IT?!?!?!? It sounds so perfect….
      Happy Reading! ❤


    1. I’m so ashamed… it’s not even a big book?? It would take me 2 days max, if I tried? And it sounds. So. Good.
      I love sirens.
      WE WILL READ IT THIS YEAR!! *siren screech*
      Happy Reading!! ❤


  3. Omg I’m with you on watching Game of Thrones while the TBR shouts angrily at our life choices lmaooo *hides from TBR* It’s just…??? We need more hours in the day. That would fix everything. I also failed on These Rebel Waves! And Wintersong. And…Circe.😂But I can attest to the brilliance of Lady Midnight, DOSAB and Turtles!! Here’s my TTT for this week!

    1. Just finished Game of Thrones yesterday and ???? jUst HOW aM I suPpoSEd to WAIT!?!?!?
      Agreed. New days should be a least 100 hours long please and thank you. We have TBRs to conquer! XD
      We fail together, we will be consumed by the void created by our too powerful TBRs together.
      AH HA! I promise I plan to read Lady Midnight, DOSAB and Turtles this year!!!! *nervous laughter because what if I dON’t???*
      Happy Reading! ❤
