It’s late, and I stupidly started thinking about my TBR list, and how I was going to approach my 2019 reading. I have absolutely loads on my kindle that I haven’t read, and I recently went though my books and unhauled a lot but it still leaves me with many books that have been patiently waiting their turn.
This post is effectively a listography of what I really should get around to reading this year, and the books I really want to read the second I can get my pen stained hands on them. My Goodreads target is 52. This year I hit 76 (I had hoped to finish Order of the Phoniex, but Harry has only just started the DA and it’s been busy).
(These aren’t in any sort of structure reading order, they are just in the order that I remember they’re pending) (if the letter is bold it means owned physical copy, an italic letter is kindle, if it’s left on its own it’ll be a library book)
1. Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman
2. Lullaby by Leila Slimani (translated from French)
3. The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster (?)
4. American Gods by Neil Gaiman
5. Women who fly by Serentiy Young (An OUP textbook about aerial women in mythology and witchcraft – I’m super psyched)
6. Invisible Agents by Nadine Akkerman (another OUP book, this one on women and espionage in the 17th century!)
7. Every woman by Jess Phillips
8. Nevernight by Jay Kristoff
9. The Well of Lonliness by Radclyffe Hall
10. Rotherweird by Andrew Caldecott
11. The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang
12. Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman
13. Vengeful by V.E.Schwab
14. City of Brass by S.A.Chakraborty
15. Sight by Jessie Greengrass
16. Strange the Dreamer by Lani Taylor
17. If we were villains by M.L.Rio
18. Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan
19. Silence of the Girls by Pat Barker
20. Heroes by Stephen Fry (audiobook)
Sequels out in 2019
1. Holy Sister by Mark Lawrence, the third book in the Book of the Ancestor Series which has been one of the top reads of 2018. I feel I’m being very patient.
2. Children of Virtue and Vengence by Tomi Adeyemi, sequel to Children on Blood and Bone
3. Finale by Stephanie Garber, the final to the Caraval trilogy
That’s honestly as many as I can think of right now, but if I were to read everything on this list I’d be practically halfway to my Goodreads target for the year!
