Victoria (crushedbymytbr) Starting small, but I need to read my own damn books, hopefully faster than I accumulate them (unlikely).

I have plenty of choice, last count was 207 unread books on my shelves, more than 60 audio books and an uncountable number on my kindle.

1. Sparrow Hill Road by Seanan McGuire (last one onto my TBR, first one off)
2. All These Worlds by Deniss E Taylor (had to relisten to the first 2 books before I got to this one)
3. The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness (picked up in a charity shop 2 years ago, recently replaced by the box set, finally read, will I get to the other 2 before the movie?)
4. Spell or High Water by Scott Meyer (I apparently own ALL the audio and kindle books, but have only ever read the first book)
5. The Hating Game by Sally Thorne (Bought exactly 1 year ago, but then ignored because romance is not my genre)
6. An Unwelcome Quest by Scott Meyer (continuing the series, but I need a break now)
7. Skitter by Ezekiel Boone (again, own the series, only read the first. Invasion of man-eating spiders not the greatest for bedtime reading)
8. Zero Day by Ezekiel Boone (glad that’s over. Good book but terrifying)
9. The Suicide Shop by Jean Teulé (found in the depths of my kindle. Strong start, weak ending)
10. Gemina by Jay Kristoff & Amie Kaufman (bought each when they came out, and audio when they were on sale, about damn time I read them)
11. Into the Drowning Deep by Mira Grant (murderous mermaids, what more could you want)
12. Fight and Flight by Scott Meyer (dragons make a book better, and characters lives worse)

OMG! I did it!

I went with Sparrow Hill Road by Seanan McGuire. Last purchase of 2018, first read of 2019. It was on my ‘to buy’ list for ages, so I used my Christmas money to treat myself. Really want the sequel now...

Next year the focus will be on continuing series - although I have got better at not buying multiple books before I’ve even started the first book, so I don’t know if that will get me up to 60.

Also - I bought away more than 60 books, damn you daily deals *shakes fist at the sky*
