Top 5 Wednesday: Books You Want to Read Before 2019

Hello beautiful people!

This weeks Top 5 Wednesday topic – books you want to read before 2019. Well then…this just makes me realize how many books I’m NOT going to get to…I’m actually debating on whether to lower my Goodreads challenge to something more manageable or not. I’ll see how I feel at the end of November…

Five. Six of Crows (Book One) Leigh Bardugo

23437156I can’t even begin to count how many bloggers have recommended me this book and series. I keep saying “I’ll get to it”…but, yea know…life happens. This is a MAJOR reason why I’ve stopped taking book review requests at the present – I NEED MY OWN READING TIME!

Four. Crooked Kingdom (Book Two) Leigh Bardugo


As many of you know, I REALLY don’t like starting one book in a series and not finishing it. So I’m obviously going to have to finish the sequel as well…

Three. The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas


Every time I get the motivation to read this, my emotions are chaotic – hence why I haven’t read it yet. With the movie being released soon though, I think this will be the big PUSH to motivate me to read it. I’m still not mentally and emotionally prepared though…

Two. The Ladies Guide to Petticoats and Piracy (Book Two) by Mackenzi Lee


By the time you lot read this post, I will HOPEFULLY have finished this book (or close to). I had a really hard time getting into the sequel for some odd reason. But now that I’m almost at the halfway mark, my interest has peaked…FINALLY! Thank gosh…

One. On Christmas Day by Rosie James


And this, my friends, is why I stopped requesting books on Netgalley. I’ve had this since December 2017…a year ago…and I STILL haven’t read it…I requested a BUNCH of books and then grew overwhelmed then ran away. I now have two books left, one of which fits for this time of year.

Man…I have quite the reading to do list. What are some books you’d REALLY like to finish before 2019?

    1. The last one I was given randomly – which I didn’t know they did that on Netgalley ha-ha! And don’t be sad…but I am having a hard time with Guide #2. I love it, then get bored, then love it, then get bored…it’s been TWO weeks and I haven’t finished it yet (reason why i haven’t posted a review in like 2 weeks as well…). UGH!!!!!!!!! I think my struggle is that Guide #1 was just SO FLIPPIN GOOD that I set the standards too high. I unno…it feels really slow at some points…

      1. Oh no! Is Guide #2 not as good? I really liked Felicity in the last book but I’ve wondered how she’d be as a narrator.
        I’ve read Six of Crows before and am rereading it now so I can finally get to the sequel. I don’t know if others feel this way, but it has a really slow start! There’s a lot of explanation in the first 30 or so pages but I keep remembering it gets better.

      2. That’s just MY opinion though. I find it super slow. It’s super good now but it took until after 200 pages for me to get more into it. I don’t even think it’s Felicity now that I sit back and think about it – it’s just that Lee REALLY slowed things down in this novel…the action is rather minimal in my opinion…

        Thanks for letting me know about Six of Crows! I always like to have those kinds of pieces of information before I begin reading.


  1. Yes Yes Yes!! These are definitely all great books to be on your TBR lists! I really want to read a book by Sarah Crossan (E.g: One or Moonrise) as I want to experience the different style of writing! 💚 (Aren’t her books all in poetry/ verse?) Lovely post, Autumn x
