Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Meant to Read in 2018

A weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

1.) Skyward by Brandon Sanderson
This is one of the rare instances where I didn't read a Brandon Sanderson book as soon as it came out. I had hoped to read this over the holidays but I didn't. However I just started it and it's really good. I should have started it sooner.

2.) Realm of Ruins by Hannah West
I loved the first book in this series so I was excited to get a copy of this at ALA. However, I never read this one. I still want to read it though so maybe soon.

3.) When We Caught Fire by Anna Godbersen
I loved The Luxe series and I was very excited to read this after meeting Anna at an event in November. But I put off reading this for like three months. I still want to read this but I don't know when.

4.) Grace and Fury by Tracy Banghart
I received a copy of this one from Netgalley and I planned to read it but for some reason I never did. I think because at the time I wasn't really reading e-books for most of the year.

5.) Heroine's Journey by Sarah Kuhn
This is another book that I probably didn't read because I was having a hard time with e-books. I tried reading it twice but never got through more than the first few chapters despite loving the series.

6.) The Curses by Laure Eve
Another book where I liked the series but wasn't reading e-books so I never read this one. I also was a maybe on this one because I didn't love the first book.

7.) Beneath the Citadel by Destiny Soira
I tried to read this book as well when I was looking for a new e-book but I only got through a few chapters before I switched to another book. But I loved her debut so I do want to read this one.

8.) When the Lights Go Out by Mary Kubica
I love Mary Kubica's mysteries and so I was excited to get a copy of this on Netgalley. But again, I wasn't really reading e-books this year. Maybe I'll get this one on audio. Mary Kubica's books tend to be good as audios.

9.) Hullmetal Girls by Emily Skrutskie
I loved The Abyss Surrounds and I tried reading this book but I didn't really like it. It sounded so amazing but it just didn't work for me.

10.) Ash Princess by Laura Sebastian
I wanted to read this book because it sounds like a great YA fantasy that would be completely up my alley but I never actually started reading it. I know the second book comes out soon so I maybe I will read them both together.

11.) Space Opera by Cathrynne M. Valente
This book seriously sounded so fun and I even got a copy when the e-book was on sale. But again, not really reading e-books in 2018 made it so I didn't read this one.

12.) Pacifica by Kristen Simmons
Kristen Simmons has been on my list for awhile now but I still haven't read any of her books, despite getting this one at ALA in 2017 and trying to read it a few times last year.

There you have it, the books I wanted to read in 2018 despite having a copy of the book. Have you read any of these? Should I prioritize them on my TBR? What book made your list? Leave me a comment with your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY READING!


  1. I loved Grace & Fury! It was interesting and empowering. Ash Princess and Realm of Ruins are pretty amazing too :D

  2. I received Grace and Fury in an Owlcrate box and I would love to get around to reading it asap!

  3. Ash Princess was on my list but then I removed it. I still need and wanted to read it last year! Hopefully this year will be the year, followed by its sequel!

    Here's my Tuesday Post
