As you can probably tell from the post title there is a Part 1 that you can check out! Believe it or not I actually buy a LOT of books that I don’t read right away but I had to have them so bad apparently. I’m terrible about getting into the hype and buying the books right away and then putting them off forever, book lover problems for sure!
(I was also just reading the first post and realized I’ve only read one off of that list, so I’m still being terrible!)
The Cruel Prince by Holly Black
Yeah, I let the hype train get the best of me on this one and I haaad to order it right away! I still haven’t touched it, I want to but I have so many other books it’s hard for me to prioritize. I should really read it here soon, I bet I’d zip right through it and I want to see what all the fuss is about too.
Reign of the Fallen by Sarah Glenn Marsh
Another 2018 release that had a bit of hype around it, most books do to be honest, and I haaad to have it. I mean come on the cover is stunning and there’s bisexual necromancers!
The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton
Super hyped book! This seems like a really, really good book and honestly reminds me a bit of the “Uglies” book/series which I loved when I was a teen. I probably won’t get to it any time soon though, I buy them faster than I read them!
Godsgrave (Nevernight #2) by Jay Kristoff
I mean….it’s a special edition with art in the covers…..I did have to have it. I’m kind of thankful “Darkdawn” isn’t coming out until 2019 because it gives me time to read this one!
Pitch Dark by Courtney Alameda
I actually have had this on my TBR for a while, since I heard about it basically which was a while ago. I mean it sounds like the ‘Alien’ franchise which is awesome and one of my faves so of course I want to read a book that seems similar to it. Then it was released, I bought it, I told myself I have waited forever for it, and I haven’t read it.
Obsidio (The Illuminae Files #3) by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
A.K.A. I’m a terrible person. I really need to read this. Why haven’t I read this? I NEEDED IT!
Children of Blood & Bone by Tomi Adeyemi
Can you tell I get sucked into the hype a lot? This one just sounds amazing though to be fair! Maybe I’ll get to it next year…..
Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao
I bought this almost right when it came out and yep, still haven’t read it. The cover is gorgeous, it’s Asian inspired YA fantasy, and it’s based on The Evil Queen legend. So really I SHOULD read it here….
City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty
I was actually really excited for this book a while before it released and when it released it was super hyped which made me MORE excited to have it. So then I bought it and the poor thing has been sitting there unread for months. Ugh.
A Torch Against The Night (Ember Quartet #2) by Sabaa Tahir
I really loved “An Ember in the Ashes” so I needed to have the sequel right away, of course, and I still haven’t squeezed it in. I know I’ll love it and “A Reaper At the Gates” is coming out here so I really should read it!
Have you read any of these books? What did you think of them?
Do you have any of these on your TBR as well?
Did you buy any of these right away and haven’t read them yet either?
Do you buy books and let them sit for a long time?
What are some books you HAD to have and haven’t read yet?
Let me know in the comments!
