The End of Year Fear: 2018 Edition




It's officially time to PANIC!!








It's December (how did that happen?), and every December I start thinking about all the books I wanted to read in the previous year and STILL HAVEN'T YET!!  Every year end I have (at least) 1 stack of books that I was really really excited about and didn't get around to reading.  This is usually due to me being a slow reader, a mood reader, and a hype-avoider.

So, here are the books that I'd really like to get to before 2019, and I probably won't:






Sawkill Girls by Claire LeGrand

  • I don't read a ton of books like this, but it sounds eerie and I want to try it.

Geography of Lost Things by Jessica Brody
  • I love Jessica Brody SO MUCH.  Her books are my kind of books even if I'm not that into Contemporary Romance anymore.

Little White Lies by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
  • I have never read a book by this author and I've been wanting to.  I was hoping for a super interesting debutante Mystery/Thriller, but I've heard it's light on the Mystery/Thriller part.

Rabbit & Robot by Andrew Smith
  • I love Andrew Smith, but I DEFINITELY have to be in the mood for his weirdness.

The Last to Let Go by Amber Smith
  • I loved The Way I Used to Be and was SO EXCITED for a new book by this author-- and then I just didn't read it??

More Than We Can Tell (Letters to the Lost #2) by Brigid Kemmerer
  • I loved Letters to the Lost and wanted to know all about Rev and his story-- but then I was never in the mood for the emotions, so I've put it off.

The Lies They Tell by Gillian French
  • I must read this book.

Not Even Bones by Rebecca Schaeffer
  • I was hoping to read this before Halloween and that was a big fail.

The Lying Woods by Ashley Elston
  • This is another book that is MUST READ.

Undead Girl Gang by Lily Anderson
  • Doesn't this book sound and look AMAZING??  I can't believe I didn't read it when it came out.






Since I am physically unable to read 10 books in the next 4 weeks, I need your help deciding which books to push to the front of the line.

Which books should I make top priority before 2019 happens?

  1. JUST READ THE LYING WOODS AND EVERYTHING WILL BE OKAY<3 (just an fyi that's it reads much more like a contemporary than a thriller, but it's PERFECT).

  2. I read Undead Girl Gang, it is cute and quirky but not a drop everything now and read book. I have the Lying Woods audiobook on hold at the library, I will let you know when I listen. Other than that, all the others are not on my list. I learned not to stress too much about what I can get done and can’t. Just go with the flow.

    1. I definitely do have to read THE LYING WOODS-- I like that author a lot + so many people have told me YES when I asked about it. Also, NOT EVEN BONES sounds so good!! I loved messed-upness!

  5. I love Jennifer Lynn Barnes! I can't wait to read Little White Lies (I know I'm getting it for Christmas so I'm hoping to squeeze it end by the end of the year).

    1. I have never read anything by her yet!!! It seems so odd because I love the types of books she writes. Hopefully LITTLE WHITE LIES is in my near future!

  8. I just added Little White Lies to my goodreads TBR.... an hour ago or something hahaha. It sounds like such a great book! and I really want to read Geography as well, it sounds like a great read too :) I hope you'll be able to get to both of these, would love to know your thoughts on them :) x

  10. I haven't read any of these but I do really want to read Not Even Bones and Sawkill Girls. There are always TONS of books that I wish I read during the year and just...never got around to doing. LOL

  11. Oh that Scooby GIF- awesome. :) I vote for The Lying Woods because it sounds great, and I liked The Lies They Tell a lot- but it wasn't AWESOME, you know? So I'd say read it haha but I'm not sure I'd put it on top of the list- it was like a B for me. Definitely worth a read, just not super AMAZING.

    Sawkill Girls I never paid much attention to but I just saw a trusted blogger rave about it last week I think it was...
