Every year, I make a goal to read the books that I own. And every year, I fail at completing that goal. It’s practically a tradition now. Anyways, let’s talk about my failures*! Top 10 Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
i feel like i make this statement every month…y’all probably know my flaws better than i do at this point.
I got The Toll roughly 5 years ago. I was so excited because (a) I got it for a good price and (b), I figured that owning the sequel would make me read Scythe faster. Both of those points ended up being true but uh…I still haven’t actually read The Toll. Would I recommend buying a sequel before reading the first book from this experience? Yes and no. Yes because you might read the first book, and no because you might be so lazy that you never make it to the sequel.
Yeah yeah yeah, this one’s obvious. I know. I get Shadowhunter books as soon as they’re released and then they just vibe in the corner. It’s so bad.
I AM SO EXCITED TO EVENTUALLY READ THIS AGAIN. I had dreams when I bought it that I would instantly binge it, love it, consider it an all-time favorite, and ramble about it in every post of mine for two months straight. That hasn’t exactly happened. Yet.
I got this book in March so it’s not as bad??? But I need to read this ASAP! It’s a highly regarded Peter Pan retelling! What is wrong with me !!!!!
I received the newest installment of every Lockwood and Co book for my birthday for three years straight. So when 2017 rolled around, I was too sad to binge this book immediately which was a MISTAKE because it is now 2022 and I haven’t even started it and now I should probably reread the ENTIRE SERIES before starting this one and*-
*this is what your english teachers like to refer to as “run-on sentences” and highly advise against using.
I was so excited for this book when I got it back in November (especially the gorgeous golden Fairyloot edition!) and yet I just haven’t read it yet. Someone please lock me out of my NetGalley account and my library account.
So far, I’m 0-1 with Schwab’s books but I still have hope for this one that I bought 5 years ago! After all, you can’t get music and monsters wrong right? RIGHT?!?!?!
Since I love The Seven Realms series, I was so excited when I bought this book many years ago! Obviously, I never finished it. I’m the queen of failures.
I also got this one in March but I still haven’t read it, despite being incredibly excited for it! I’ll give myself a little leniency however, since hard-hitting contemporaries are very emotional.
So that’s it! Those are all the books I was super excited for but failed tremendously at reading. Tell me: what’s a book you were excited about getting but still haven’t read yet?
