Hello, fellow readers, and welcome to the twelfth day of Blogmas! For the final day of Blogmas before I go on a brief hiatus, I wanted to discuss my carry over TBR for 2020. There are several books (more like dozens of books!) on my TBR that I did not quite get to in 2019, so they will be carried over to my growing TBR for 2020.
1. The Wayward Pines series by Blake Crouch
I have wanted to read this series since before I even discovered the bookish community online. The series is on Kindle Unlimited, so I am hoping to finally make this happen in 2020.
2. Night Film by Marisha Pessl
Almost every booktuber I follow has called this book creepy and amazing! I honestly meant to read this one during October, but I’m thinking it would also make a great winter read!
3. An Absolutely Remarkable Thing by Hank Green
This was a BOTM pick for me in 2018. Despite the rave reviews, I still haven’t gotten around to reading it. It is one of those books I always say I’m “saving for later.”
4. A Gathering of Shadows (Shades of Magic #2) by V.E. Schwab
A Darker Shade of Magic was my first read of 2019, and then I never continued the series even though I really enjoyed the first book! The next two books in the series are quite lengthy, so I think that has kept me from picking them up.
5. Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo
This was one of the most hyped books in the bookish community in 2019, but the reviews were all over the place. I definitely want to read this one for myself to see where I stand.
6. Middlegame by Seanan McGuire
I was really excited for this book, but my library did not get a copy so I was waiting for a paperback release. Then I found it on BookOutlet during the Black Friday sale, so now I finally have a copy! Now I just need time to read it.
7. Into the Drowning Deep by Mira Grant
I did not know Mira Grant was also Seanan McGuire when I added this book to my TBR! I had heard of the book before but was reminded of it when I found it at a bookstore in St. Paul over the summer. I’m afraid I spoiled a major plot point for myself, but I’m still interested in reading the book.
8. Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
I’m not sure if this author’s writing will work for me, but I need to get over that fear and just try. I also did not realize what a hefty book this was until I bought a copy last year!
9. The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black
I have not heard the best things about the final book in the Folk of the Air series, but I do intend to get to it early in 2020. I don’t know why the publisher was in such a hurry to release this book in November of this year since the second book just came out in January or February of this year!
10. Recursion by Blake Crouch
I still can’t believe I never got around to this one in 2019! I honestly know nothing about this book, but I’ve also heard that it is best not to know much before going in to this one!
What are some books you will be carrying over to your 2020 TBR? Let me know in the comments!
