There isn’t an official Top 5 Tuesday topic this week, but since I missed most of December, I decided that I would do one of those topics this week. The topic I chose is from December 10, 2019, and it’s books I didn’t get to in 2019. There are a lot of books that I wanted to read in 2019 that I didn’t get to for various reasons, below are five of these books.
Thunderhead by Neal Schusterman: Technically, I started reading this one in the middle of November, and then I did what I tend to do best, and I didn’t end up finishing it. I put it down because I was participating in a readathon and I wanted to scoop up as many bonus points for reading a book cover-to-cover as I could, and after the readathon, I just didn’t pick it up again. I don’t want to say that this book is a priority, because I’ve been saying that I’m going to read it since February, but I do hope to finish it up soon.
99 Percent Mine by Sally Thorne: I bought this book with The Hating Game back in February, and I still haven’t read it. As you know, I loved The Hating Game, and it is the reason why I’m hooked on the rom-com genre, so I’m a little surprised that I haven’t read this one yet. I think I’m going to add this book to my February TBR because February is Valentine’s Day, which is the perfect excuse to read all of the rom-coms.
Emergency Contact by Mary H.K. Choi: I have heard so many amazing things about this book, and it was near the top of my TBR for most of 2019. Unfortunately, other books for buddy reads and book clubs kept on taking priority, and I still haven’t picked it up yet. I hope that in 2020, it will be able to stay near the top of my TBR and that I’ll get to read it.
The Wedding Party by Jasmine Guillory: I absolutely adored The Wedding Date and The Proposal, and I picked up this book at the store as soon as it came out. I think this book will actually be knocked off of my TBR soon because I’m going to ask my best friend if she’d like to buddy read it with me in February. We read The Wedding Date and The Proposal together, so naturally, we have to read this one together.
The Cruel Prince by Holly Black: I started this book at the beginning of 2019, but I wasn’t feeling fantasy at the time, so I put it down intending to pick it up again in a few weeks. I then got sucked into a rom-com and Agatha Christie phase, and that took over my 2019 reading list. I have a few fantasy series that I want to try to get to in 2020, but this one is at the top of the list because I’ve heard so much about Jude and Cardan and I need to know what the hype is all about.
How about you? What are some books that you didn’t get to in 2019, but you’d like to read in 2020?
