Top Ten Tuesday – Books I Meant to Read In 2020 but Didn’t Get To


Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!

This week’s TTT topic is Books I Meant to Read In 2020 but Didn’t Get To.  This topic actually made me chuckle when I saw it because I actually have a list of 50-60 books I meant to read last year but couldn’t fit in.  The ones I’m sharing today are books that I’m most hoping to get to sometime in the next few months.

    Omg, I was just thinking after publishing my post that I should’ve added Wild at Heart to my list because I was so looking forward to reading that last year, too 😂 House of Earth and Blood did make my list today though and I’ve seen it on quite a few others. This also reminds me that I *need* to read Gods of Jade and Shadow and Transcendent Kingdom! I hope you manage to get through these (and more!) this year 😃

    I saw so many raves for many of these. So, they sound like great bets. I am hoping to read the final book in Jonah and Calla’s series. I really enjoyed getting to know those two.

      I did better with that than I usually do but I think I just ordered that one too late in the year to have time to read it. Hope to get to it soon.

    If I kept a list like this, mine would probably be as long as yours. LOL I hope you are able to get to all of those on your top ten list like you want to. Several are ones I would really like to read too. Gods of Jade and Shadow being among them.

    I had too many books on my TBR list from last year that I didn’t get around to reading to even attempt to narrow them down to only ten for this week’s TTT. But I have hopes I’ll actually manage to read them all this year. 🙂 Good luck with your list!

      Mexican Gothic is the only one of hers I’ve gotten to so far but I definitely want to read more from her, starting with this one.

    Gods of Jade and shadow! ahhh, that was on my TBR too, and yup, I didn’t get to it at all 🙁

      I’m really hoping to make time for it this year. I even read another newer book from her in 2020 and still skipped this one, lol.

    Well, I decided not to read Giver of Stars after I became convinced that she stole chunks of “The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek” for her book, but the decision is yours.

    I really enjoyed Wild at Heart and loved revisiting Calla and Jonah. And I never got around to Obama’s book, either, so I definitely want to get to it this year. I want to go the audio route for that one.

      I really want to do the audio on the Obama book too. I did that for Michelle Obama’s book and thought it really added so much to hear it in her actual voice.

    Oh, The House in the Cerulean Sea was my absolute favorite 2020 read, so I’d definitely recommend starting there 😉 I also really enjoyed House of Earth and Blood. The Neal Shusterman and K.A. Tucker series are both on my TBR still, so I hope to get into them this year.

    Gods of Jade and Shadow, A Promised Land and The House on the Cerulean Sea are books I want to get to but didn’t get to last year either! Hopefully this will be the year we can both get to them ^.^
