Back to Top 5 Wednesdays! Top Five Wednesdays started on Goodreads back in 2013. At the beginning of every month Sam from ThoughtsOnTomes posts a topic for each Wednesday and bloggers, vloggers and overall book fans are encouraged to respond with their Top 5.
This is one of my favorite book blogging memes; I love writing and reading list/round up posts. This week’s topic—my first Top 5 since getting back into blogging—is the most disappointing reads of 2018. Now as I mentioned in my back to blogging post, I also kind of fell off the reading wagon in 2018, so instead I’m going to do my Top 5 Books I’m Disappointed I DIDN’T Read in 2018.
Let me know what’s you’re Top 5 in the comments!
1. Tower of Dawn and Kingdom of Ash (Throne of Glass) by Sarah J. Maas
I fell behind in this series and just kind of refused to read Tower of Dawn when it first came out—I’m not super into Chaol’s POV or journey, especially after that cliffhanger in Empire of Storms. But that kind of screwed me over this year when Kingdom of Ash was released. I’ve been waiting for the conclusion to this series for soooo long. NEED TO CATCH UP NOW.
2. Save the Date by Morgan Matson
I was really excited for this release in 2018, I love Morgan and the rest of her books—plus I even got to meet her at an author event and get all my copies signed!
3. And I Darken by Kiersten White
This is one of those series that’s almost done (or is it done?) that I know everybody loves, and the first is sitting on my shelf, but I can’t make myself read it even though I’m sure I would love it.
4. Renegades by Marissa Meyer
Marissa is another author that I got the pleasure of meeting this past year, I got the book at the meetup, and it’s just sitting there on my shelf, which super disappoints me because like The Lunar Chronicles is one of my favorites.
5. The Dark Prophecy (The Trials of Apollo #2) by Rick Riordan
I LOVE RICK RIORDAN! And the first book in this series was so good, I honestly love the humor in his writing and Percy Jackson-world and I miss it so much when I’m not like actively reading it. Like honestly sometimes I just think about Percy and am disappointed I’m not reading like at that exact moment all over again.
