It’s officially 2018. How does that even happen? The last few years seem to have flown by in a manner that I’m deeming simply unacceptable. And somehow, still, in 2018, there are some REALLY popular books that I still haven’t read. Here’s a list! Please let me know which ones you recommend I move to the top of my list.
Okay this story about not-so-openly-gay Simon has a 4.27 on Goodreads, and MANY bloggers I follow and trust gave it amazing reviews. WHY HAVE I NOT READ THIS YET? (No, seriously, why?)
This I know has to be a masterpiece. I love the title, love the cover. Ah. I’m obsessed. About Aristotle and Dante and their relationship. It has a 4.34 on Goodreads! WHY?
FIRST OF ALL THIS IS ABOUT A GEEK GIRL. That’s my everything. Geek girls are my everything. WHY HAVE I NOT READ THIS. With a 4.08 on Goodreads. I need it. I don’t love the cover? Has that deterred me? I don’t know what in the world my problem is.
THIS WHOLE SERIES THOUGH. It’s fairy tale retellings? I love fairy tale retellings. This has a million jillion reviews, most of them amazing, and has a 4.15 on Goodreads. Is this the year? I did finally buy this.
Okay I recently bought this one too! And with this one, I have more of an understanding of why I haven’t read it. I know it’s gonna be good, okay? I get it. I just don’t love dystopians much anymore? It’s not my favorite. This one has a 4,19 on Goodreads and I know I’ll get there when I’m in the right mood for it.
This one sounds so amazing. ANOTHER that I have purchased but have not read? Why. WHY VANI? I’ll get there. 4.08 on Goodreads.
Okay I’m gonna tell you the truth on this one, don’t throw rocks at me. I tried. I started this. I got about thirty pages in? Y’all. It’s SO MANY CHARACTERS. And like so much world-building so fast? I was exhausted. I think I need to start again in a better head space. 4.46 on Goodreads! That’s nuts! I gotta make it happen.
SCI-FI! I love YA sci-fi. I don’t know that much about this one? I know from the reviews I’ve seen that I’ll like it. I trust that I will. It’s just… low on my radar? 4.32 on Goodreads!
Okay real talk, I recently found out I’m mixing this up with like three other books/series? I don’t even know. I have no excuse for myself. 4.28 on Goodreads!
This sounds so cute. And right up my alley! I love contemporary YA. I know I will love this. Why haven’t I made it happen?! 4.11 on Goodreads.
Alright! This is my list of shame. Let me know which ones are the most dire, please!
