Books I Missed Getting to in 2019 – The Start of a 2020 TBR Pile

Now, we do have a little bit of time left in 2019 but, as much as I would LOVE to get to some of these before the year is out, I doubt I will have time with the way things are going. Even if I take the next two weeks off work and do nothing but read, I’m never going to finish up all the books I wanted to this year. Womp womp. But, the good news is that books don’t expire and I can read them just as well next year.

As you’ve probably seen me mention around here a time or two, I’m going to be doing something a little different with my 2020 reading – focusing on books I already own and pulling mostly from those for my more immediate ‘TBR’ piles. That being said, I do have 2019 releases that have been waiting in the wings and I’d like to make them somewhat of a priority. As always, we’ll see how things go. πŸ™‚

OwlCrate Books

Shamefully, I haven’t had a chance to read ANY of my OwlCrate books yet, but these two look the most promising out of the bunch and I’m excited to dive into them first.

  • Winterwood by Shea Ernshaw
  • Crier’s War by Nina Varela

Other New in 2019 Books

These are two that were recommended to me by friends and I’m super excited to get to them. I had hoped to get to them this month but no time so they’re going into the 2020 pile!

  • The Fever King by Victoria Lee
  • The Imaginary Corpse by Tyler Hayes

2019 Sequels I Missed

I’m really looking forward to continuing all of these series. I read a good amount of sequels this year, but couldn’t get to them all in a timely fashion. So, next year it is!

  • Aurora Blazing by Jessie Mihalik
  • The Rise of the Magicks by Nora Roberts
  • Dragon Unleashed by Grace Draven

So, there you have it. I’ll have a lot more books in my TBR other than just these for 2020, but this is a good start. Any thoughts on these? What are some books that you wanted to get to but just couldn’t squeeze in? Leave a note in the comments, I’d love to chat!

    Ooh I love your idea to focus on your bookshelf and read mainly from there and your TBR. It’s hard to keep up with those areas when you’re mainly reading new releases. I might try that idea too πŸ˜€ Great post! Jen

    Great plan! I would love to read more of my own books next year too. Aurora Blazing was lots of fun! And I don’t think Dragon Unleashed comes out till next year, so there’s one you can cross off this list😁

      That’s awesome! I think I still have more read than unread, only because I have so many books, but my TBR is still quite intimidating. At this point it will literally take years for me to get through them all lol. πŸ™‚

    Ugh, I need to go back and make a similar list – but I think I will feel overwhelmed if I do. Perhaps I’ll try a mini list as a started and see how I get on.

      Last year I only put 5 books on my list. I think I got to two or three of them? LOL I really need to stop looking at new shiny books so much whoops. I totally get feeling overwhelmed though, I often am when I think about all the books I need to get through.

    • waytoofantasy says:

      I had no idea about Crier’s War until I got it in my box and even then wasn’t super interested until I read some reviews, it sounds like something I’d love. Hope we get to all of these eventually lol.
