TTT: Books I Missed in 2018


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly themed blog hop created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl.

This Week's Topic: Books I Meant to Read in 2018 But Didn't Get To

Hahaha! There are SO MANY due to 2018 being known as the Year of the Reading Fail in my life. But here are the ten I'm most eager to get to now. (I've already knocked some others off the list in the past few weeks.)








What about you? What did you miss out on last year that you can't wait to read this year?

I've noticed many people added Spinning Silver to this week's TTT. I own a copy of it and still haven't read it.
Hope you love all of these once you finally get to read them!

Memoirs/Autobiographies really aren't my favorite, but for Michelle, I will read this.

I just picked up my copy from the library, so hopefully, I will get to it in the next three weeks. I also hope you enjoy it when you finally get around to it!

And grrrr...BLOGGER! Why can't I comment on. my own freakin' posts AS ME.

I have a copy of Spinning Silver and Kill the Farm Boy by Delilah Dawson and Kevin Hearne that I want to read.

Ooh! I have read and loved three of these - but the first post-Cybils fiction I read was the Girl with the Dragon Heart. I want to read the Belles and Naomis Too, also. And Sanity and Tallulah, and the Prince and the Dressmaker, and House Girl (because I won it.) You are probably going to inspire me to put together my own proper list...

Future Favorite Friday: June 2018

I take the 2nd Friday of every month to highlight some upcoming releases I am looking forward to that I hope are Future Favorites. Feel free to do your own post, just please link back to my blog and tell me about your post in the comments.

Two Naomis was one of my favorite reads of 2016 so I was understandably excited it's getting a sequel. 

In this sequel to Two Naomis, now that Naomi Marie’s mom and Naomi E.’s dad are married, the girls have learned to do a lot of things together, like All-Family Sunday dinners, sixth-grade homework, navigating the subway system by themselves, and visiting their favorite bakeries. Until sixth grade in a new school presents a whole new set of surprises and challenges.

Trusting her gut has worked for Naomi E. all her life, and she figures that it will be an asset to her role as a Peer Mediator—until she realizes how much of the job requires the Art of Compromise, which she’s only just starting to get used to at home.

Naomi Marie is excited about maki…

Lovely War

When I first heard about Lovely War by Julie Berry, I remember thinking, "Whoa, that's ambitious." And it is. The scope and depth of this story with all of its intricacies and thematic elements is massive. Berry manages to hold it all together beautifully. She managed it so beautifully that it is so far my favorite YA read of 2019.

The ecstasies and the wounds of love were Aphrodite's work. Forging passions was what she was born to do. She, too, was a welder, a mistress of fire of a different sort, working in materials more powerful and resistant than carbon and iron. And what did that toil do to her?

In 1942 New York City while men are partying on the eve of shipping off to war, a stunning couple arrives at a hotel in the midst of the revelry and departs for their room followed by an overly enthusiastic bellboy. But none of these figures are as they appear. The couple is Aphrodite and Ares on a secret assignation that turns out to be not so secret as the bellboy is Ap…

This Week's Topic: Auto-Buy Authors

Here are my auto-buy authors and their most recent or coming soon release. Also, I got stuck on twelve and couldn't cut it down any further. So it's really Top Twelve Tuesday today. Or Thirteen rather as I sort of combined Emma and Genevieve. (I auto-buy all their individual projects too.)








Who are some authors whose books you buy no matter what?

(I don't know what it says about me that there is only one male author on this list, but I don't dislike whatever it is.)
