TITLE: Stolen Time
AUTHOR: Danielle Rollins
PUBLISHER: HarperTeen
GENRE: YA Sci-Fi/Fantasy
RELEASE DATE: February 5, 2019






Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. 


This week's topic is: Books I Meant to Read In 2018 but Didn’t Get To


*in no particular order


10. SHADES OF WICKED by Jeaniene Frost--been dying for this book to exist for ages and do I read it right away? No. I was tied up and still am in other book commitments!
9. 99 LIES by Rachel Vincent--I love me a Rachel Vincent book and I had really hoped to read this one right away since I read the first as an ARC and you know how my memory is! Lol.
8. NEVERWORLD WAKE by Marisha Pessl--this one just sounded so awesome after I read a few reviews. I thought I would squeeze it in around Halloween-ish time, but no dice.


7. THE EXTINCTION TRIALS by S.M. Wilson--this one sounded amazing! The Hunger Games meets Jurassic Park?! I didn't read or see the former but know of its concept and I loved Jurassic Park (the movie)!
6. BREATH OF FIRE by Amanda Bouchet--I reallllly wanted to get back to this series but did I? Nope.
5. THE SWEETEST BURN by Jeaniene Frost--I'm in trouble with this series! I read the ARC of book 1 over 4 years ago and have very little memory of it and naturally it was long before my notekeeping days. I might just have to break my no rereading rule for this one!


4. THE NAMED by Marianne Curley--ironically I was (and am) planning to break my no rereading rule--which the rule exists because of time constraints--to start this series over again so I could better read the fourth installment which was added just last year!
3. NIGHTBLOOD by Elly Blake--I really wanted to just dive into this one right away. But again, other book commitments came up that prevented that!
2. BY A CHARM AND A CURSE by Jaime Questell--I had heard good things about this one and really thought I would read it within a few weeks of getting it, but as you can see that didn't happen!


1. THE RETURN by Jennifer L. Armentrout--every year I say I'm going to start this series and every year I seem to get caught up with other books. Will this be the year I finally read it? God I hope so! Lol!

  1. I had no firm plans to read any of these, but I throughly enjoyed Vincent's Soul Screamers series and am curious about 99 Lies.
