I just don’t have the time – Blogmas

It can’t just be me right? I can’t be the only one with a neverending TBR hanging over my head poking me every now and again reminding me of all the books on my shelf I have yet to pick up. Its not? Phew! There were a ridiculous amount of books I had every intention of reading this year and then for one reason or another, mainly me requesting too many ARC’s/signing up to too many blog tours, I never got round to picking them up. So off they go, moving from this years TBR to the next and hopefully, hopefully I will get the chance to pick at least a few of them up. These are all book’s that were on my TBR for 2019 and will be moved across to my 2020 TBR for many reasons, whether I had read an amazing review, a friend keeps recommending them…Susan, or they simply sound like something I would enjoy. Do you have any books from this years TBR moving over to 2020’s? Or did you manage to get through everything you intended? Let me know in the comments.


I am determined to pick this book up in 2020. In fact I’ve already added it to my January TBR, so once I’ve slogged through my ARC backlog and sorted out all my blog tours it is the first book on my list… whether this actually happens remains to be seen, but it’s the thought that counts right?


I was kind of holding off reading this one until the final book was out in the world, so I have no excuse now. I’ve heard slightly mixed reviews but if Susan loves it then I have high hopes ( plus we have pretty similar tastes so bonus!)


I requested and was accepted for the second book of this series on Netgalley before I had even read the first. I’m pretty sure I’m going to love it though because it sounds right up my street. This one manages to kill 2 birds with 1 stone because I will get to knock a book off my FC and Netgalley backlog.


I have heard sooo many amazing things & read sooo many beautiful reviews about this book, and it’s just been sat on my shelf, looking all pretty and patiently waiting for me to pick it up.

Silence of the Girls

I actually read about this on Samantha Shannon’s twitter and the story sounded too beautiful to pass up. All about the unknown/unwritten about women in Greek mythology. It sounds awesome and the cover is beyond pretty.

Master of Sorrows

I snagged a copy of this at a Gollancz event I went to earlier in the year and still haven’t managed to pick it up. I like the moral dilemma the premise of this book gives off and that it might not be about a traditions hero.

The Near Witch

Victoria Schwab it pretty much an auto-buy author for me now so it took very little convincing for me to grab this one. I love that it was re-printed to give us all the chance to read her first ever book.

Ink and Bone

The Library of Alexandria survived! If only. But luckily for me I can escape reality for a while once I manage to dive into these pages. I’ve seen a few of my favourite authors mention how much they like this series so I have high hopes.

To Kill a Kingdom

I’ve had this on my TBR for a while, but actually picked up Christo’s Into the Crooked Place first through Netgalley. I absolutely adored that book and it’s just made me that much more eager to pick up anything else she has written.

Tess of the Road

I will admit to not having read Seraphina… I really should get hold of a copy. But I was reliably informed I wouldn’t have to have read it to enjoy this one. Not gonna lie, the cover drew me to this one initially… it has a dragon on it! But I was quickly hooked by the premise and I cannot wait to dig in.

Ok! So, although I have probably around 200 more books on my shelves/kindle that I need to get too, these are the one’s im most eager to dive into. Have you read any of these yet? What did you think of them? Or like me, are they being pushed onto next years TBR? Let me know in the comments.

  1. There are plenty of books I’m carrying over to 2020. The plan is not to read anything else until I get through the physical TBR pile in my bedroom, but I’ll be surprised if I stick to that! 😅

  2. I have loads of books sitting on my kindle which I didn’t get around to this year and an audiobook of Circe on my phone. Who knows, we might get them read this year, or not.
