Top Ten Tuesday: 2018 Books I Still Need to Read

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is Books I Meant to Read In 2018 but Didn’t Get To. This list could probably be pages long. I think I did better than most years keeping up with 2018 releases, but that also meant my older TBR list suffered. Here are ten books I hope to read at some point in 2019.

Mapping the Bones by Jane Yolen: When I first heard about this book, I knew I wanted to read it. I like historical novels, especially about events or people I don’t know as much about. I hope to read this one soon.

All of This Is True by Lygia Day Peñaflor: I don’t often read mysteries and thrillers, but this synopsis has me intrigued. I’m not sure when I’ll get around to reading it, but I’d like to give it a try.

These Rebel Waves by Sara Raasch: I planned to read this when it came out last summer and I even put it on hold from my local library, but for some reason, they never got it so I took myself off the hold list. Hopefully it’ll show up soon or I’ll request it from another library closer to the release date of the sequel.

A Thousand Perfect Notes by C.G. Drews: This is one I’m still debating whether I want to read it or not. I probably wouldn’t give it a second thought if it wasn’t written by the well-loved Paper Fury. I’m curious about her writing ability.

Catwoman: Soulstealer by Sarah J. Maas: I’ve never read a book by Maas and I’m not a huge fan of Catwoman, but since I’ve read the other DC Icons books, I want to read this at some point. I do, however, want to read one of Maas’ original works before I read it.

Grim Lovelies by Megan Shepherd: I have this book sitting on my TBR shelf and I plan to get to it soon. The concept sounds like it’s something I’d really enjoy.

Bridge of Clay by Markus Zusak: The only Zusak book I’ve read is The Book Thief and that scarred me for years (in the best possible way). I’m interested in his new book, but I’m not sure how soon I’ll get to it.

Aru Shah and the End of Time by Roshani Chokshi: I probably should have read this when it first came out, but I didn’t. I wasn’t a fan of The Star-Touched Queen, so I’m a little wary of Chokshi’s books. But this one looks so good!

Darius the Great Is Not Okay by Adib Khorram: I probably wouldn’t have added this to my TBR list if a friend hadn’t recommended it to me. I know very little about it, but I hope to read it soon.

Small Spaces by Katherine Arden: I don’t normally like horror, but my mom read this one and said I would probably like it because it reminded her of a Doctor Who episode. I want to read more middle grade and this one is at the top of that list.

Have you read any of these books? Which ones should I make a priority to read? Don’t forget to join the link-up!

  1. I read SJM’s Catwoman and really enjoyed it! Idk a lot of Catwoman lore so I can’t attest to it in that regards, but I thought it was a really fun read!

    And I also need to read Aru Shah and the End of Time! I just read The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi and now I want to read all of her work!

    Here’s my TTT post if ya wanna check it out:

    • I’m not a huge Catwoman fan and I don’t know as much about her as I do other superhero characters, but I’m hoping it’ll just be a fun read too.

      I just got The Gilded Wolves and Aru Shah from the library and I’m excited to read them! I guess it’ll be Roshani Chokshi binge week.
