We all know I’m bad at reading new releases as soon as they are published. We also know they can languish on my shelves for a couple of years before I decide to pick them up.
I don’t particularly want to wait those couple of years. I want to get into the habit of reading them when I’m still excited for them, rather than lose that interest further down the line and end up giving them away still unread.
So it is time to take some action.
I have a list of 10 books published last year that I hope to sneak into my 2020 reading year. I could class it as a TBR, I don’t know. What I do know is that I need to whittle down the unread books on my shelf because it is getting ridiculously out of hand.
As that’s enough waffling, let’s get into the books:
My problem books here might be Ten Thousand Doors of January and The Starless Sea, because they are books that will need my undivided attention and I sometimes struggle committing that time to books like this. I know I will love them. It’s just that I don’t know when I’ll get that time to read them.
Song of Sorrow is one I’ve already tried reading this year. I liked what I read but I wasn’t really in the mood for it so I had to put it down for the time being. However I want to pick it back up again before the Northern YA Lit Fest in March as Mel Salisbury is one of the attending authors!! The same can be said for The Harm Tree too.
Then again, there’s no rush. There’s certainly no priority ranking. It’s just a case of whittling down the lists and shelves of unread books.
Have you read any of these?
If so, what are your thoughts?
What are some books from 2019 that you hope to read this year?
As always, thanks for reading and have a brazzle dazzle day!
