Top Ten Tuesday #11: Books We Meant to Read in 2018, But Didn’t Get To


Hey guys! It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday, which is currently being run by the lovely Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl.  We knew instantly that we wanted to take part in this weekly meme because both of us love making list, so this is perfect!

This week’s (January 22nd, 2019) topic is: Books We Meant to Read in 2018, But We Didn’t Get To.

Since there are two of us running this blog (Melanie and Mireille), we’re going to break these memes up between us and each pick five!




tttnot read

Oh god, just five? My shame knows no bounds when it comes to this topic.

The Wood by Chelsea Bobulski
I’ve been dying to read this ever since I found out of it’s existence.  The cover is stunning, the story sounds like it was made for, so why haven’t I freaking read this yet!

Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia
Mirielle pretty much hates this book but other people I know love it, so I have to give it a shot.  Even though I don’t read light contemporary often, I do love me some geeky chicks.

Not Even Bones (Market of Monsters #1) by Rebecca Schaeffer
What is my life where I haven’t read this yet? I mean this was in my very top anticipated list last year, so of course I bought it right away and let it sit on my shelf.  UGH why am I like this?!?!!?

Sawkill Girls by Clare LeGrande
I’m still mad at myself for not reading this one, I refuse to even talk about it!

Wildcard (Warcross #2) by Marie Lu
This sat on my TBR shelf, by my bed for a few months now.  I will get to this soon and to my reread of Warcross.

Aru Shah and the End of Time by Roshani Chokshi
This was a group read back in Spring of 2018 for TBR and Beyond but unfortunately I wasn’t able to get to it in time. I still have it in my TBR and will try to get it read before the end of this year. Still really excited for it.

Grim Lovelies by Megan Shepherd
This was one of my most anticipated release last year and I’m so disappointed that I didn’t get a chance to get to it earlier. I will though this Winter.

Gunslinger Girl by Lyndsay Ely
Yet another group read that I jusy didn’t get to. I have about 20% of this one read, unfotunately I had to jump to another book to keep on track.

Heretics Anonymous by Katie Henry
Guess what? This was a group read, again. I sometimes have horrible reading months because life gets in the way. I have about 10% on this one done, will have it read by the end of the year.

A Touch of Gold by Annie Sullivan
OK this one I am mad at myself for. I was going to read this in November and unfortunately my day job got in the way of my reading big time. So this Spring I will have this one done for sure.

Do you guys have any of these on your TBR? What books didn’t you get a chance to read in 2018?

  1. I still need to read “A Touch of Gold” (love the publishing house, Blink), but did manage to read “Wildcard,” a duo that’s fast-paced and entertaining. Thanks so much for the Finding Wonderland visit – hope you both enjoy your respective must-reads! 🙂

  2. I’m with you on Not Even Bones!! I’m SO ashamed of myself for not having read it yet oops. And also Sawkillgirls is on my TBR too…but I can attest to the brilliance of Grim Lovelies and Heretics Anonymous, so I hope you get to them soon!! Here’s my TTT for this week!

  3. I really enjoyed Eliza and Her Monsters! I really love books that involve art and/music. I don’t know why? They’re just so enjoyable!
    I ONLY JUST FOUND OUT THAT WARCROSS IS A DUOLOGY????? I’VE BEEN NOT READING BOOK 1 BECAUSE I WAS ALL; “I’m gonna wait ’till all the books in the series are out so that I can binge read them and not be brutally murdered by any cliffhangers!”
    I was a fool. Now I’m going to buy Wildcard and devour them. Marie Lu is an amazing writer and I will read whatever she writes!
    Grim Lovelies is sitting on my shelf looking at me. Waiting…..
    It sound SO GOOD! Animals that are turned into people?? Heck yes! Paris with an underground magic society?? YES PLEASE!

    Happy Reading to you both!! ❤

  4. Eliza and Her Monsters has been on my TBR for a long time now. Also, I bought Warcross a while ago and still haven’t read it.
    Hope you enjoy them when you read them!

  5. Wildcard was one of my favorite books from last year. I bought Sawkill Girls and A Touch of Gold (on sale) but I haven’t read them yet. I just can’t pass up an interesting looking book when it goes on sale for $2 or $3!

    Ohh Eliza and Not even Bones are still on my wishlist. I’m so curious and excited about them!!!! Still need to read Warcross, yikes. Hope you get around to read these books soon and that you’ll love them as well!

    Ahh love your list as well! Aru Shah, Grim lovelies, gunslinger girl and a touch of gold are on my wishlist. Grim lovelies is on the shelves already so I’ll hopefully get around to read it soon! Hope you’re going to love these books when you get around to read them!


  7. I think Sawkill Girls and Gunslinger Girl (ha – both “girl” titles) need to go on my TBR. I’ve heard fantastic things about both.

  8. Great post and a great list of books I really do want to check out Not Even Bones by Rebecca Schaeffer because I heard many great things about it and it looks and sounds like my kind of book that I would absolutely love and enjoy reading. Thank you so much for sharing your awesome post.


  9. Ha, for once I don’t have to see ALL the books of my TBR in a post! 😛

    Sawkill Girls, and Gunslinger Girl are the only ones I own and haven’t read yet. The latter I only bought in December so.. not too bad. 😛 And I read Wildcard already, yay! Usually I’m the worst with sequels, but I was way eager to read that one apparently? Why can’t I be like that with all sequels..
