I may have read a lot of books in 2019, but I definitely did not get to all of the ones I had on my TBR. I have started some of these (some years ago) and never opened others, but all the same I would like to get to them soon.
Part of my Reading Goal for 2020 is to read the books that have been sitting on my shelves for up to years and I still haven’t read. Some of those books are on this list, but most of them are new releases or sequels I unintentionally avoided this year.
Here are some of the books I regret not reading in 2019:
[All book covers are from Goodreads.]
Newer Books that I don’t own yet:
These are books that I don’t own and came out recently (or I just discovered). I may not own these yet and will not own some of them ever, but I would like to read them. I hope to get to all of these next year, particularly Winterwood and Crooked Kingdom. I don’t think I will ever own Crazy Rich Asians unless it really blows my mind and I have to go buy it after I read it, otherwise I will just get it from the library.
I plan to read Winterwood this Winter, since I just got the audiobook yesterday. The other books in this section I haven’t decided when to read, but I am keeping an eye out for sales on them at bookstores.
Books that I own but haven’t read:
These are books that I own and have been on my TBR shelf for far too long. For example, I have been meaning to read Jurassic Park for years, but didn’t own it until last year. Despite owning it, I still didn’t read it. Caraval is probably the newest book in this section, and I bought it back in October 2019. I even have the audiobook for Royal Assassin, but I still managed to drag my feet for 5 months.
It is my Reading Goal for 2020 to read at least one book from my massive TBR pile at home, and these four books are on that list. I will probably get to Royal Assassin and Caraval this Winter, and Lord of Shadows and Jurassic Park this Spring/Summer.
I shouldn’t season read, but with these I feel like I have to. I don’t feel like reading a tropical dinosaur book in Winter, but I do want to read a dark fantasy that takes place in Winter. Can you blame me?
Although the books in this section are part of a personal reading challenge for this year, I still really hope to read all of these soon.
If you would like to know more about these books, I get all of my information from Goodreads (not sponsored) and have these books in several of my past posts, like 2020 Anticipated Books and End of the Year TBR.
Thanks for checking out my reading regrets for this past year!
I am dying to know what reading regrets some of you have. Do any of yours match my list? Do you not have any regrets? Let me know in the comments.
Don’t forget to check out the books I read this past December!
