Ten of the Books I Meant to Read In 2020 but Didn’t Get To

January 19, 2021


Happy Tuesday and welcome to another TTT! This meme is hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's TTT theme is Books I Meant to Read In 2020 but Didn’t Get To. I have way more than 10 books that I didn't get the chance to read last year. Books that I'm hoping I can get to this year. For this post, I went back to an earlier post, SOME OF THE BOOKS ON MY FALL 2020 TBR, and my TBR and chose the ones that I'm pretty sure I'll read in the near future. So here goes...

 

Storm and Fury by Jennifer L. Armentrout - Enter a world of gargoyle protectors, rising demons and one girl with an explosive secret.
Dead Pretty by Samantha Towle - I had a stalker. A murderous one. And I had no clue who he was. He never showed me his face. Not even when he carved his final message into me.
Cinderella is Dead by Kalynn Bayron - It’s 200 years after Cinderella found her prince, but the fairy tale is over. Teen girls are now required to appear at the Annual Ball, where the men of the kingdom select wives based on a girl’s display of finery. If a suitable match is not found, the girls not chosen are never heard from again.
Ripple Effect by Keri Lake - They call me RIP. I’m a killer. A murderer. A psychopath. In the eyes of the righteous, I’m a monster, born of sin and depravity.
TimeTrap by J.T. Bock - UltraAgent TimeTrap is hiding out. This peace-loving, universe-traveling hero is tired of fighting Aztec gods, sociopathic scientists, and her reality TV–star mother. She needs a vacation from using her superpower. With comfy slippers and streaming movies, she’s taken refuge with her new boyfriend, Max Martin, in his high-tech, gated home.
Five Dark Fates by Kendare Blake - After the grim confrontation with Queen Katharine, the rebellion lies in tatters. Jules’s legion curse has been unbound, and it is up to Arsinoe to find a cure, even as the responsibility of stopping the ravaging mist lies heavy on her shoulders, and her shoulders alone. Mirabella has disappeared.
Burn For Me by Ilona Andrews - Nevada Baylor is faced with the most challenging case of her detective career—a suicide mission to bring in a suspect in a volatile case. Nevada isn't sure she has the chops. Her quarry is a Prime, the highest rank of magic user, who can set anyone and anything on fire.
Kingdom of the Wicked by Kerri Maniscalco - Two sisters. One brutal murder. A quest for vengeance that will unleash Hell itself… And an intoxicating romance.
One Step After Another by Bethany-Kris - He finds the unfindable, but she’s terribly good at hiding …
Trapped by Alison Aimes - “Convicts don’t ask. They take.” Marooned on a primitive prison planet , Bella West has one chance for survival until rescue arrives: trade her body for protection.


I am very pleased to note that this list is certainly eclectic. There's fantasy, scifi, young adult, dark romance, etc. I'm excited to dig into these books this year.

What books did you miss out on last year? Please tell me in the comments below or leave the link to your own TTT post if you have one. Happy reading!!

  3. I've heard so many good things about Cinderella Is Dead. I actually read the first chapter but then my time with it ran out and I had to return it to the library. (I had a lot of books out at the time). Someday I'll request it again. :)

    My post.

    1. I hope you do get back to it. I've heard great things about the book as well. I'm hoping I really enjoy it :)

  4. I really enjoyed Cinderella Is Dead, it was a super fun read. Kingdom of The Wicked was so-so for me, I liked the idea behind it, but found the plot rather slow going.

  9. CINDERELLA IS DEAD sounds SO intriguing! It's on my TBR list, but I'm not sure when I'll actually get around to read it. Hopefully soon.

    Happy TTT!

  10. We have four in common! Lol Storm and Fury, Kingdom of the Wicked, Five Dark Fates, and Dead Pretty are all books I wanted to read last year but didn't. Did you read the Dark Elements series already?

    1. No I haven't :( Is it necessary? Will it make the read better?

      And wait... I thought y'all read Five Dark Fates without me in the buddy read?

      Delete
    2. That's my bad! I was thinking of the novella we were supposed to buddy read and didn't! 😂 As far as Storm and Fury, yes! I would read the Dark Elements series first. The main character is a main in the Dark Elements series, too. ❤
