There are so many books I wanted to read in 2019 but didn’t end up getting to! I have so many books on my TBR. So here are a few books I wanted to read this year in particular but didn’t end up reading.

Once and Future by Amy Rose Capetta and Cori McCarthy – A King Arthur retelling set in space? I wanted to read this book as soon as I heard the concept for it. I also got my hands on the Illumicrate special edition. But I just didn’t get round to reading this one. It’ll be high up on my TBR for 2020.
Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi – This book has been really hyped this year but I have a lot of fantasy books on my TBR and just didn’t end up having time to read this one. The second book is out already so this is another series I’m going to get behind on!
Romanov by Nadine Brandes – I made a spontaneous purchase of this at YALC having not really heard of it before. I haven’t read many books that blend fantasy with historical events, so am curious to read this one. It’s kind of slipped down in my priorities though.
The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo – I’ve discovered I quite enjoy reading novels in verse. It makes a change to read one every now and then to make a change from the usual prose. I’m really looking forward to this one and would like to get to it in 2020 since I didn’t get round to it this year.
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas – This book has been out for a couple of years now and I finally bought a copy this year. I’ve not been much in the mood for contemporary novels recently though so haven’t read it yet.
