Hello! Hope you’ve been having a good week! Mine has been quite relaxed, but my friends came round for pizza on Friday, which was fun, although I was in charge of catering and the evening ended with my friends driving back via Dominos- that’s all you need to know.
Oh and in exciting blogging news I will hopefully be posting my first author interview this week! Hope it goes ok!
But on with the post and am I the only one who’s feeling slightly judged?! I’m sorry I failed you 2018 debuts 😭
Although it did come out last year I’m weirdly glad I didn’t read it because my friend got me a beautiful hardback copy for Christmas which I have just finished- watch this space because the review is imminent, I NEED to fangirl.
2. The Cruel Prince
How have I not read this yet?! The sequel is about (or has??) to come out and I still have no idea what the hype was about.
3. Strange the Dreamer
I met the author at YALC and have a signed copy of this novel glaring at me from my shelf. Ssshhh I’ll get to it soon.
4. Sky in the Deep
I really had been wanting to read this, because hello Vikings. It will join the hoardes of books on my endless tbr.
There was so much hype for this novel at YALC and I honestly left with the best of intentions to read it. Now it’s 2019 and well, oops.
6. The Belles
I have heard mixed reviews but I still want to pick up this 2018 bestseller. And the author was at YALC which further piqued my interest. Maybe this year?
7. The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Vertue
The title of this one always made me think it was MG for some reason. I have been recommended it lately, and have heard it’s quite good so hopefully I’ll pick it up this year. It’s sequel hit the shelves in 2018 and I just completely failed.
8. Love Simon
With the movie being big I did mean to pick up the book (which I think has a different title? Not sure if it underwent the rebrand too). Maybe this year!
9. Things a Bright Girl can do
I don’t remember when I brought this and which YALC I got it signed at but it is constantly glaring from my shelf.
10. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before
The film came out on Netflix and I have a rule to always read the book first (don’t even ask). It’s not really the sort of book I’d read but maybe I’ll try it this year? Or possibly just watch the film 😝
