So, funny story . . . I got my Top 5 Tuesday dates wrong and posted this weeks blog post (Dear Santa . . . ) last week. I’ll be correcting that today by posting “Top 5 Books I Didn’t Get To In 2019” today! I apologize for the mix up but my life’s been a little crazy at the moment! If you would like to join (and hopefully get the dates correct) please follow Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm, she posts new topics each month for everyone to participate in.
- Oathbringer by Brandon Sanderson – Despite my love of Brandon Sanderson, I’ve had a really difficult time picking up this book. I’ve been through a lot of major life changes recently and I haven’t had the time or energy to get to this one. I’m hoping that this summer when I have more time off and more room to breathe I’ll be able to finally tackle this behemoth of a novel.
- Dark Age by Pierce Brown – Despite the fact that this was one of my most anticipated reads of the year, this is again a situation of just not having the time or energy to commit to this book. I want to be able to fully invest in the world and the events of the story and I haven’t been able to do that with a lot of books I’ve been reading, especially when they are incredibly long.
- The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss – I know that a lot of people love this book but I just haven’t had the desire to pick it up yet. It feels like the kind of book you read in the fall but as a teacher my fall season is so incredibly busy that I don’t have time to pick up a lot of large, in depth fantasies.
- Things You Save in a Fire by Katherine Center- I’ve been wanting to get to this one for a while but it feels like a summer read so I’ve decided to wait til late spring or summer to pick this one up. Maybe it’s the cover but something about it just screams summer read to me.
- Forever, Interrupted by Taylor Jenkins Reid – There are a couple of reasons I haven’t had the chance to read this one. The first is that it will be very emotional and I haven’t been in the mood for something crazy emotional as of late. The second reason is that it seems like the perfect book for springtime based on the cover.
