Usually I do Top Five Tuesday, but this week’s theme was “””books that need to be films”””
and I already did a post like that a few weeks ago.
because i’m somehow both psychic and self-destructive.
So this week I’m making a post for the Top Ten Tuesday meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. & i’m excited about this one!!! Books I wanted to read in 2018 but they slipped through my fingers like sand. but I’m not here to give up!
🌷 Adult Fantasy 🌷 Badass Female Characters 🌷 Compared to Six of Crows 🌷
I tried very hard with this one, but I couldn’t deal with the audiobook’s narrator. If the voice talent isn’t EXACTLY right in an audiobook, I instantly give up.
In this book, his voice just wasn’t soothing. so I said no way jose.
But I still want to read the physical book! I have a copy reserved at the library, & hopefully at some point this year I’ll be formally called upon as the Chosen One.
🌷 Contemporary f/f romance 🌷
Lesbian fiction! about a girl who becomes friends with her co-star, and then *more*. This books sounds deeply romantic + everyone who reads it falls in love????
I only haven’t read it because it’s expensive to buy for myself && my library barely owns any sapphic books.
But I’m going to read this! Where there’s a will, there’s a way!
unless you’re cheap like me and refuse to buy books unless you’ve already read and loved them why does my spirit prevent me from taking financial risks
🌷 Young Adult Sci-Fi 🌷 Distopian 🌷 has won awards 🌷
The sole thing I know about this book is that it’s “an inspiring tale of friendship!” But Marija recommended it to me and I love her recs with my entire soul, so I’m not at all worried about the possibility of me loving this.
🌷 classic 🌷 fantasy comedy 🌷
I love the movie mainly because it reminded me of Monty Python and the Holy Grail !!! The film grain & feelings & OVERALL COMEDIC GOLD was just like my 1970s King Arthur. I’m a big fan ALL AROUND.
But not many people seem to like the book????? They say it’s not as funny? So I want to read and find out for myself, like the motivated! person with original! opinions! I am in 2019.
🌷 young adult contemporary 🌷 gay 🌷 angsty 🌷
I’ve been putting this off because a large number of my Goodreads friends hated it. (i’ve been influenced skdjf WHAT SHOULD I DO???)
But I still want to read it because I constantly confuse myself.
🌷 classic 🌷 best friends – lovers? 🌷 cute??? 🌷
The only Jane Austen novel I haven’t read yet, i will not be a failure for even one more year. Also, this is the golden child of some Austen fans. Mine is Persuasion but I’m willing to consider having a new favorite?
oh sh*t i’ve become a stone cold monster, arrest me before it’s too late
🌷 young adult historical fantasy 🌷 paranormal 🌷
I just like 1920s lingo it’s adorable and the bee’s knees
🌷 lgbtqia rep 🌷 feminist 🌷
I loved Radio Silence, but it didn’t reach the god tier level of friendship I was hoping for. maybe “I Was Born For This” will climb to that height.
🌷 own voices 🌷 autism rep 🌷 fat rep 🌷
Romantic and sweet + the main character is autistic. tbh I just want it to be Kiss Quotient.
but I’m glad I waited until 2019! because it’s what we’re reading in the Dragons & Tea Book Club in February !!! I’M PARTICIPATING IN THINGS, MA!
🌷 young adult fantasy 🌷 sapphic! 🌷 horror 🌷 magic 🌷
Girls becoming obsessed with one another in the most wholesome way possible, Also a murder mystery. sign me up /immediately/
Out of all of these I’m most excited about Mansfield Park because it’s one I’m reading with my sister and we haven’t done an intentional buddy read since 2013. And it was Great Expectations by Charles Dickens?????
IT’S BEEN 9457482 YEARS.
What is a book you didn’t get to in 2018? Have you read any books from my tbr? Which is your favorite?
