Books I Missed Getting to in 2020

Well, there were a ton of books I would have liked to get to in 2020 but failed to do so. Some of this is because I was concentrating on back list books more than new releases but also just time and at one point I was in and out of a slump…wow. I’m just full of excuses haha. The truth is, there’s only so much time in the day and no matter how hard we try we’re never going to be able to get to every single book we want to read. But are just a few of the books I missed this year and would like to get to in the near future!

Awesome Books I Missed

  • Unconquerable Sun by Kate Elliott
  • The Bone Shard Daughter by Andrea Stewart
  • The Once & Future Witches by Alix E. Harrow
  • Black Sun by Rebecca Roanhorse
  • Hollow Empire by Sam Hawke

Are there any books that you wish you could have squeezed in this year? Leave a note in the comments, I’d love to chat!

      It really is impossible. Sometimes it makes me sad I can’t get to all of the books. The other night my husband asked me what superpower I’d like and I said immortality so that I can work on my TBR LOLOLOL. πŸ™‚

    I know the feeling, I think we’ve all got these types of lists πŸ˜€ Anyway, I’ve read three on here, and they were all VERY good – Once and Future Witches, Bone Shard Daughter, and Black Sun – this last one, I highly recommend and think you should definitely prioritize πŸ˜€

      Definitely going to read Black Sun–I ordered a personalized signed copy from an indy bookstore and I’m still waiting on it to arrive because the shipment had been damaged when arriving back to the store after signing so they had to redo it. I’m sure it’s worth the wait though! πŸ™‚

    I’ve got so many that I planned to get read this year and then didn’t get as much reading done as I wanted! Black Sun is also on my list although I’m hoping to read it very shortly. I’m not sure I want to identify how many I planned to read this year and didn’t, aha! Good luck getting around to them!

    • waytoofantasy says:

      I didn’t get as much reading in as normal either, but it’s been a year so I’m trying to give myself a break about it. πŸ™‚
      Black Sun–hoping I get to that in January!
      Thanks, good luck with your reading as well. πŸ™‚

    I really wanted to read The Bone Shard Daughter and Black Sun this year as well I hope we will both enjoy them next year!


    • waytoofantasy says:

      Oh yes, I didn’t get to UnSun either–so I have a lot of suns on my list as well. Like I said to someone else, I could have added 20 books to this list but didn’t want to depress myself LOL.
      Hoping for 2021!

    Definitely recommend Once & Future as soon as you can! It’s a lovely book, and it just pops into my brain every once in a while to remind me how good it was, and I can’t wait until it’s finally time to reread it.

    I wish I’d been able to actually accomplish my goal of reading all currently published Shadowhunters books, and I have no idea why it’s taking me forever given that I love them, but I’m just so far behind still.

    Oh gosh, I feel like the books I missed in 2020 would be far longer than I’m comfortable with, so I’m going to pretend that doesn’t exist. xD I really want to read Black Sun and The Bone Shard Daughter, too! I’ve heard wonderful things about them both. Hope you’re able to get to these in 2021, maybe. πŸ™‚

    • waytoofantasy says:

      My list is actually a lot longer than this, I didn’t want to include them all because I would get depressed LOL. So yeah. πŸ™‚
      I’m excited for Black Sun! If my copy ever arrives in the mail I’ll probably try to get to it right away. Thanks! Hope you’re able to catch up with some 2020 reads as well. πŸ™‚

    Well, I could make a list but I think it would just get me down – too many books that were covid casualties for me this year. My mood was just dire.
    I’ve read a few of these. Loved Black Sun and Bone Shard Daughter. Once and Future Witches was good but I didn’t love it as much as her first book – still good, just not quite as staggeringly good.

    • waytoofantasy says:

      Mine would have been longer except I also would have been depressed, so I just picked a few to highlight.
      I totally get it, my mood was all over the place last year, and a lot of it was just down in the dumps or filled with anxiety because of various things.
      I’m really hoping to get to Black Sun soon! I ordered a signed copy from an indie book store on the other side of the country and it’s finally shipped and hopefully will be here this week. *crosses fingers*
      Hopefully I’ll love the others as well (and I’ll also be able to get to them soon).
