I got to read a lot of great books this year, but there are also a lot of books that I never ended up getting to. That could actually change in the next few days since it's only the 24th, but I'll try to put books that I definitely won't be reading in the next few days.
- City of Heavenly Fire (The Mortal Instruments #6) by Cassandra Clare: I never wanted this series to be more than the first three books, but I need to finish it now. When it came out, though, I was close to graduating, so I never picked it up, and then I went to Europe, so it's just been sitting there.
- Champion (Legend #3) and The Young Elites (The Young Elites #1) by Marie Lu: I feel terrible that I didn't read Champion this year, especially since I liked the second one a lot more than the first, and I want to get to the first book in her new series.
- Raging Star (Dust Lands Trilogy #3) by Moira Young: I LOVED the first book in this series, but the MC made some terrible decisions in the second book, so I've been putting this one off.
- Ruin and Rising (The Grisha #3) by Leigh Bardugo: There are times where I really enjoy this series and other times where I really don't care. I can appreciate this richness of the mythology, but sometimes I think the author gets too caught up in it. Besides, the MC really got on my nerves in the second book.
- The 5th Wave (The Fifth Wave #1) by Rick Yancey: I've heard so many fantastic things about this book! I really need to start it.
- Snow Like Ashes (Snow Like Ashes #1) by Sara Raasch: This is a fantasy that came out sort of recently, but I've had an ARC for a while. I just haven't been into fantasies recently, mostly because of my own novel.
- Venom (Secrets of the Eternal Rose #1) by Fiona Paul: It took me a while to read the first book, but once I got into it, I couldn't put it down.
- Illusions of Fate by Kiersten White: I've heard really good things about this book. I've never really been blown away by her books, but this one has had some great feedback.
- Compulsion (The Heir of Watson Island #1) by Martina Boone: I honestly don't even know very much about this book, but I don't think I've read one bad review of it.
- Attachments by Rainbow Rowell: I especially want to read this now because I'm working in an office again, so I think it could really translate. I might just have to bring it to the next department book swab once I read it!
Are there any books you were dying to read but never got to this year? Let me know in the comments!
