Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
This weeks theme is: 2021 Releases I Was Excited to Read But Didn’t Get To
There are SO MANY BOOKS I wanted to read in 2021 but sadly there is a limited amount of time I can use for reading each day. Conveniently I have a Goodreads shelf of 2021 releases. Having a shelf also helps me prioritize some of them in this new year or remove them if they no longer interest me.
These are a few I REALLY wanted to read but didn’t get to:
Chain of Iron (The Last Hours, #2)– Nobody talk to me about the fact I haven’t read Chain of Iron. To be fair, when I learned Book 3 was pushed back to November 2022, that made me in no rush to read this…. I’ll read it sometime this year!
Down Comes the Night – There was such HYPE surrounded this one and I just…never got to it. I feel like it could be hit or miss for me but I want to give Allison Saft a try.
Counting Down with You -I saw/met Tashie Bhuiyan at YALLFest in November and she’s the sweetest! I have an arc of her upcoming book A Show For Two, but really want to read her debut first!
The Infinity Courts (The Infinity Courts, #1) – This one seems right up my alley but I’ve heard mixed things and knowing it was going to be a series put me off from reading it. I would still like to get to it this year!
Hot British Boyfriend – I remember how excited I was for this contemporary and then…I didn’t read it. I feel like it’ll be a good read around Valentine’s Day so I’m planning to put this on my February TBR!
Once Upon a Broken Heart – Nobody talk to me I’m sad I haven’t read this yet. I kept saying I wanted to reread the Caraval series before getting to this…sigh. 2022 goals!!!
Lakesedge (World at the Lake’s Edge, #1) – This one seems super spooky and I’ve seen it compared to House of Hollow (which I loved) but its Audible only, which is stopped me from listening to/reading this sooner. Also knowing its a series, I may wait until closer to Book 2 release before reading…
All of Us Villains (All of Us Villains, #1) – I have no idea what this is about but I see it everywhere so I’m just going to give it a try one of these days!
Gilded (Gilded, #1) – I have a love/hate relationship with Marissa Meyer books. I loved the Cinder series…but that’s all I’ve enjoyed by her. I’m willing to give her one last chance and then I’m just not going to try any of her books anymore. Also, I thought this was a standalone. Why is this a series… 😦
