Books for Life is where I share bookish lists, recommendations, and favourites. You can also catch me talking about non-bookish things here, as well as my life outside of blogging. Today I’m talking about…
books i own and should have read by now
There are some books that I own and (inevitably) haven’t read. But these aren’t just random books I’ve bought and haven’t gotten around to. These are books I 100% should have read by now because they’re by a favourite author, or they sound perfect, or they’re in a series I love. So to bask in my shame, let me share with you some books I own and totally should have read by now.
The Young Elites by Marie Lu
WHY? I have two copies of this book and it’s still unread. I absolutely adored Lu’s Legend trilogy, so when I found out about her back-then-new series I was so excited. It sounded badass! EXCITEMENT. Yeah, well, look where that excitement’s got me.
Reign of the Fallen by Sarah Glenn Marsh
From the moment I heard about this book I was keen. A dark, queer YA fantasy? With that hella awesome cover? Count me in. I even preordered this book! And now… it’s just sitting on my shelf. Albeit prettily.
If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo
#ownvoices contemporary about a trans girl! With a trans girl model on the cover! GROUNDBREAKING! And unread. :(
More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera
History Is All You Left Me and They Both Die at the End are some of my favourite books. They were both five star reads, and they both left me broken!! So why haven’t I picked up Silvera’s debut novel?
Dawn Study by Maria V. Snyder
The conclusion to the Study series. And my damn face is on that Fan Study cover! What is wrong with me? I guess I don’t really want the series to end? I mean, when it was a trilogy it was sad to finish. Then we got the extra three books! And now it’ll be finished again, and there won’t be any more Valek.
Now I Rise by Kiersten White
And I Darken was pretty much my favourite book of 2016? I bought Now I Rise the second I saw it in store. I actually did a happy dance when I picked it up. How could I have not read it by now? I guess I can binge the whole trilogy now that Bright We Burn is coming out? Excuses, excuses.
What are some books you can’t believe you haven’t read? Share the shame.
