Books I own and still haven’t read (but I really want to) | 5/14/20

If I listed all the printed books I own and haven’t read yet, this post would be miles long. But I thought I’d share some of the books I really do want to get to…eventually. Does anyone else have this problem? I have this issue with mainly print books. I actually prefer ebooks and those I only buy because I plan to read them right away. But I’m also a sucker for beautiful, printed books.

The Two Lives of Lydia Bird has one of the prettiest covers I’ve seen in the last few months and I was so excited when my co-worker grabbed a copy for me when she attended ALA MW in Philly (I live in South Jersey). Technically, I started this book and am a few chapters in, but put it down because I had other books I needed to read and submit reviews for (also, I get super distracted by other books in general).

I nearly forgot I had copies of The Girl The Sea Gave Back and Mermaid Inn. I was cleaning up around my room, including my shelves and book cart, and found these. I loved Adrienne Young’s Sky in the Deep so much, I couldn’t wait to read the follow-up which I won through Goodreads. Mermaid Inn is another romance sent to me by Read Forever and I look forward to reading it because I really enjoyed Jenny Holiday’s Bridesmaids Behaving Badly series.

I really enjoy Nora Roberts’ romance books and since I was super into her previous romance/suspense, Come Sundown, I decided to pick up Under Currents.

MacMillan was offering to send free ARCs to librarians who filled out a book matching form and one of the books they sent me was Kate Bateman’s To Catch an Earl. It’s the second in a series apparently and while I’m a stickler for reading books in order, regardless of whether they can be enjoyed as standalones, I was so hyped when I saw this cover!

I had not really heard of Anna K: A Love Story, but when I saw the ARC sitting in our library office and it was up for grabs…I grabbed it! I don’t know much about it and sometimes I prefer it that way. Sometimes it’s good to dive into a story without expectations!


Do you also have several books you have yet to read on your physical or digital shelves? Have you read any of these? Let me know!

  1. Awww ALAMW. I’m sad I missed it but I was on maternity leave (my colleagues say I have a Midwinter baby now).

    I hear the Two Lives of Lydia Bird is really good. I don’t know if I can handle the feels.
