20 Backlist Titles I Want To Read Soon

I know I made a list of priority titles to read in 2019 in December, and I still want to read the remaining twelve titles on that list, but the fact that I still need to get to more than half of these titles shows that my priorities have shifted and I thought it was time for an updated list. All of the titles mentioned below are 2018 releases or before (I might make a list of 2019 releases I want to read soon as well). Some titles I need to read for a challenge, others I’ve been meaning to get to for ages… What they all have in common is that I finally want to read them soon!

So what titles have been high on my radar, but haven’t been able to read so far? Find out a full list below.

# Queens Of Geek by Jen Wilde (289 pages). I need a couple of lighter reads on my TBR and I’ve heard great things about this one.
# Muse Of Nightmares by Laini Taylor (514 pages). Strange The Dreamer is one of my all time favorites so I can’t wait to finally read the sequel!
# Us Against You by Fredrik Backman (448 pages). I’m a huge fan of his work and have enjoyed every single story so far. While Beartown wasn’t one of my absolute favorites, I’m still looking forward to read the sequel soon.
# The Names They Gave Us by Emery Lord (400 pages). I’ve been meaning to read this one for ages and I’m not sure how it slipped between the cracks of my TBR mountain… Another YA contemporary at hand for when I need a change of genre.
The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman (343 pages). This title has been on my TBR for years, and even though I have a feeling it will be a new favorite, I somehow never actually pick it up. The historical setting in Australia sounds amazing!

# We Are Never Meeting In Real Life by Samantha Irby (288 pages). I needed a funny read for a challenge and I’m having high hopes for this one.
# The Woman In Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware (340 pages). I’ve been meaning to read this one for a long time now, and I want to get to it before her newest story comes out.
# The Archived by Victoria Schwab (321 pages). Schwab is one of my absolute favorite authors so I honestly don’t understand why I haven’t read this one yet.
# Ivory And Bone by Julie Eshbaugh (371 pages). I need this one for a challenge, and I’m definitely curious what I’ll make of it.
# Stalking Jack The Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco (336 pages). A Jack The Ripper retelling sounds bloody brilliant and I’ve been meaning to read it since it was published. How on earth did it happen that I didn’t manage to read this one yet?!

# Next Year In Havana by Chanel Cleeton (361 pages). I like historical fiction set in foreign countries, and there is just something about this title that makes me want to read it soon.
# The Dark Descent Of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White (304 pages). I’ve been meaning to read more of her work and I need a retelling for a challenge, so I’ll probably read it soon.
# The Island by Victoria Hislop (473 pages). It’s been a while since I read her work and it fits one of the prompts of a challenge, so I’m going to try and pick it up soon.
# Block 46 by Johana Gustawsson (300 pages). I’ve been wanting to read this title ever since I first heard about it and I’m definitely going to do so ASAP!
# Jar Of Hearts by Jennifer Hillier (311 pages). I’ve heard so many fantastic things about this story and I can’t wait to finally get to it!

# VOX by Christina Dalcher (336 pages). I’ve heard a lot of great things about this one, so I’m looking forward to discover what I make of it.
# The Secret Diary Of Hendrik Groen by Hendrik Groen (400 pages). This sounds like such a fun read and I’m excited to be finally reading it now I have a physical copy!
# Finders Keepers by Stephen King (545 pages). I’ve been meaning to pick up another King for a while and after debating I decided to finish the Bill Hodges trilogy first before picking up a new story. I read the first book years ago and wasn’t a fan at the time, but I’m hoping I’ll enjoy the experience better this time around.
# The Weight Of Feathers byAnna-Marie McLemore (320 pages). Another YA read I’ve added to the pile for when I need a change of genre… The blurb sounds fascinating.
# Where The Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens (384 pages). I’ve heard so many wonderful things about this title that I just haven’t got another option but try and find time for it. I’m looking forward to this one!

Have you read any of these titles yourself or do you want to? Any titles I should give extra priority to?

    • I have heard fantastic things about Jar Of Hearts! Beartown was a slowburner for me, although I did love the second half… I’m hoping the sequel will continue with that feeling.


    • I still can’t believe I haven’t read The Light Between Oceans! I’ve been meaning to for years… Where The Crawdads Sing sounds fantastic; fingers crossed we’ll be able to get to it soon.

  1. You have some great books on here! I really enjoyed Jar of Hearts, The Light Between Oceans, and The Names They Gave Us. I read We Are Never Meeting in Real Life and I found it to be just okay. It had its funny parts, but I mostly ended up feeling sorry for the author if I remember correctly. I also want to read Next Year in Havana and Us Against You.
    I hope you get to all of these soon!

  2. I am dying to read The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankestein. I have been on hold for forever at my library for Where The Crawdads Sing. So many people want to read it, haha. Hopefully I’ll get it within the next few months. Good luck with reading all of your backlist books. I have so many I need to read, SO MANY. haha.
