Hello people! Welcome to the first of May’s Six For Sunday prompts, this month Steph is having us honour that wonderful pile of books which on occasions (or regularly for me) threatens to overwhelm us! Starting this week by looking back at the 2018 books still sitting unread on my TBR!
Six for Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Steph at ALITTLEBUTALOT. You can find a list of prompts from January to June 2019 here
2018 Books Still Unread
2018 wasn’t a good reading year for me, I mean I read some fantastic books but I didn’t read all that many of them, so this list could run an awfully long way past just the six books below – There were six unread books just on my personal Must Read Kids Lit from 2018 post a few weeks ago.
The Brink Of Darkness – Jeff Giles
I read and really enjoyed The Edge Of Everything, The Brink Of Darkness is the follow up to this and has been sitting on my shelf for far too long I really want to get to it and find out how Zoe and X’s story continues.
Lethal White – Robert Galbraith
I cannot begin to describe how excited I was waiting for the new Cormoran Strike book to be released, I pre-ordered it and even left work early to go and pick it up from Waterstones but I’ve barely got started with it, it’s just so big it’s not exactly convenient to take on my commute!
The Fandom – Anna Day
One of the people whose bookish opinions I trust most in the world loves this book so I must get to it.
Goodbye Perfect – Sara Barnard
I’m yet to read a Sara Barnard book, although I own all four of them. I actually have two copies of Goodbye Perfect, one I purchased and another a signed copy I won when Sara ran a giveaway on Twitter, I really want to get to this one!
The Sentence Is Death – Anthony Horowitz
Another sequel I’ve not yet got around to. The Word Is Murder was one of the most unusual and enjoyable books I’d read in a while, Anthony puts himself into the novel as one of the central characters and I’m intrigued to see how it works in the second novel.
State of Sorrow – Melinda Salisbury
Back to a Charlotte recommendation – I’m reliably informed that the Sorrow Duology is outstanding so I must get started!
Additional mentions go to Renegades by Marissa Meyer; More Than We Can Tell by Brigid Kemmerer; The Fifth To Die by J. D. Barker; The Loneliest Girl In The World by Lauren James; No Time To Cry by James Oswald; The Extinction Trials by S. M. Wilson; Tilly and the Book Wanderers by Anna James; That’s Not What Happened by Kody Keplinger; Eve of Man by Giovanna and Tom Fletcher; We Regret To Inform You by Ariel Kaplan; Theatrical by Maggie Harcourt; The Window by Amelia Brunskill; Becoming by Michelle Obama; Broken Ground by Val McDermid; Only Love Can Break Your Heart by Katherine Webber and This Lie Will Kill You by Chelsea Pitcher

I still have a lot of 2018 books sitting on my TBR as well. You’ve got some great ones on your list. I really liked Goodbye Perfect and More Than We Can Tell, and Renegades was fun too.

Excellent! I’ll look forward to them!
State of Sorrow is BRILLIANT, and the sequel is even better! Also really liked Theatrical, Pages and Co and Only Love Can Break Your Heart. I’ve not read This Lie Will kill You yet either- I saw a bad review and I’m a bit scared to now 😂. I absolutely LOVED Goodbye Perfect as well; you must read some Sara soon!

I know! I meant to the other weekend and then got distracted by something else!

Goodbye Perfect is AMAZING.
