Top Ten Tuesday

This week’s topic is…

Books I Meant To Read In 2018

Guys…that’s every book I own!  Haha, no, but really…I had every intention of reading the books I had on hand.  So…I suppose I shall make this list with the books that first come to mind that I really, really, intended on reading, but, for one reason or another just got pushed back…in no particular order here we go!



Big Woods by May Cobb

I purchased this on October 22, 2018 and really, really wanted to read it.  I got it for a steal at 99 cents and before I know it, it’s January 2019 and I still haven’t read it yet!  This will be a must for me soon!



Winter Street Series by Elin Hilderbrand

I fell in love with Elin Hilderbrand in 2018 so I decided I would buy her Winter Street series and have a binge read in December…well, I bought the books…guess what I will be reading in December this year (and if I’m not YELL AT ME)!



Closer Home by Kerry Anne King

I had this book checked out for a month from the Kindle Owner’s Library and did I read it?  No.  So I finally just purchased it because I love her writing and this story line has me so intrigued.  I’m still kicking myself over not reading it when I had it checked out! Grrrrr…



The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah

I bought it!  It has been on my list to read since it came out and I finally bought it in 2018!  Each time I saw a review of this book or saw it on social media I thought, I’m going to read it now…yet, here I am…



The Fifth Juror & The Advocate by Lori Lacefield

I won a super sweet contest from Lori Lacefield where I won a $100 Amazon gift card and a new Kindle Paperwhite.  I bought her books (naturally) and I actually went to read these, however, I was slightly miffed that when you buy a box set on the Kindle, it all stays together.  I had every intention of reading the first book, another book inbetween, and then the second book, but, they were together, meaning, when it showed me how many pages and percentage was left, it was for BOTH books.  I had hoped that a box set would show as the 2 separate books but now I know and even if I save a few bucks, I will never buy a box set again on the Kindle!



Brain On Fire by Susannah Cahalan

I refound this book when I unpacked a stray box from our move in March 2017.  It went right to the top of my TBR pile, but, I never picked it up.  I would like to note that my day job is working with students with moderate, severe, and profound disabilities so this book really has me curious and will be one that I will read this year.


Well…it looks like I have a LOT of reading to do and I should get off of here and get to it!  Are any of these still on your TBR list?  Have you read any?  Any I should stop what I’m doing and read right away?

  1. A lot of new to me titles on here and a couple favourites! You also just reminded me that I, too, need to read the Winter Street Series. I read the first one–as a galley–a while back and I keep meaning to read the rest! I hope you get to all you wish to. And that you enjoy them! Happy reading!

    1. Thank you for stopping by! I knew I had to buy all 4 books because once I read one I would want to read them all! Maybe I’ll feel like winter in July and I’ll read them then instead of saving them for December!!
