Saturday Top 5: Books I Have To Read By The End Of The Year… AKA Books I Should Have Read This Year But. FOMO

Saturday Top 5: Books You Have to Read By The End of the Year

This Top 5 series started back in October and I kind of lost motivation for making it every week. But it’s back! This is a series of books that I want to read that all have a common theme. Previously on the blog I have focused on witches, werewolves, thrillers, faeries, fairy tale retellings and high fantasy. I am going to try and bring this series back for every Saturday. 

The upcoming schedule is:

11/2/19 — Indie Books

11/9/19 — Books with a Survival The

11/16/19 — Books by Unread Authors You Want to Read

11/23/19 — Books with Fake Love Couples—yeah… I’ll be doing something anti-holiday next week lol– combine two triggers in one week and kaboom lol

11/30/19 — Books to be read by the end of the year

I’m a bit out of the loop but I’m guessing that exciting things are coming in December!

Saturday Top 5: Books I Have To Read By The End Of The Year

Let’s try that again… but with a little honesty. Because the last month of the year will be filled with jump starting January ARC’s

Saturday Top 4 5: Books I Have To Read By The End Of The Year Books I Should Have Read This Year But Didn’t Get To…

  1. Because. Of Course. Buying Nevernight wasn’t enough. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

2) HEY! This one is now in my greedy little hands kids… 

And look. Here’s the thing. I’ll take the blame for misjudging it. But you can’t say I don’t listen. I heard you. Loud and clear. When the words goth and dark started popping up in reviews across my timeline? I perked quicker than The Tox…. I might have been slow. But I got there. 

3)  The Thirteenth Tale- Diane Setterfield

Man someone protect me from Becky because she’s gonna have my damn head. Twice I’ve prioritized this book in the course of this year and twice now I haven’t gotten to it.

<Me running and hiding>…

4) The Devil’s Aspect By Craig Russell

Oh let’s see now. It has been on a Goodreads Monday post AND a Stack the Shelves post. And yet I STILL HAVEN’T READ IT. EXPLAIN THAT TO ME!

And there you have it!

Let’s Chat!

What books are you going to regret not getting to this year? And don’t lie… you know you are going to have some! We all will… spill the tea!
