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!

April 2019 TBR

I can’t believe it’s April today and that we are into our second season of the year already!! Time seriously flies by way too fast… My March TBR went pretty well and the only reason I didn’t finish all ten titles on it was because I already read way too many ARCs compared to my backlist titles… No need to say that ratio is no longer below the promised 40%. xD The Murmur Of Bees is due in April though, so it goes straight to my April TBR.

>>> Find a complete list of my TBR on Goodreads <<<

I’m hoping to get my ARC/backlist title ratio below 40% again this month, but I do have quite a few ARCs due soon so I’m not sure how well that will go. I’m also doing the O.W.L.s Harry Potter themed readathon, so quite a few titles will be for that challenge (almost all except for I’ll Be Gone In The Dark)… I’m waiting for a bunch of books to arrive though including Circe (thanks again Eva for helping me order them! <3), so my TBR might change once they do. 😉

# TBR #

  • Circe by Madeleine Miller (337 pages)
  • I’ll Be Gone In The Dark by Michelle McNamara (352 pages)
  • Release by Patrick Ness (287 pages)
  • The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer And Annie Barrows (322 pages)
  • Final Betrayal by Patricia Gibney (484 pages) NETGALLEY

  • The Silver Ladies Of Penny Lane by Dee MacDonald (275 pages) NETGALLEY
  • The Murmur Of Bees by Sofia Segovia (476 pages) NETGALLEY
  • Song Of Sacrifice by Janell Rhiannon (426 pages) NETGALLEY

February 2019 TBR

January 2019 has passed way too fast, and we’re already in the second month of the year… January was a super reading month despite the camping trip and I managed to read a LOT. I’m not surprised I was able to read all the titles on my January TBR even though I did read a lot of backtitles as well… Fingers crossed February will be another good month!

>>> Find a complete list of my TBR on Goodreads <<<

I have been able to maintain the balance between ARCs and backlist titles in January, but that does mean I still have a lot of ARCs to go through… That’s why most of the titles on my February TBR are still ARCs, with a few backlist titles I want to get to no matter what.

January 2019 TBR

I am shocked that in only two days I will have to start typing 2019 and this year is officially over. Where did 2018 go? I’m posting my January 2019 TBR a bit early this year, because I’m not sure in what state I will be on the first. 😉 December turned out to be a super busy month and I didn’t read as much as previous months… Probably why I didn’t read all the titles on my December TBR. All three remaining titles passed straight to the next month though.

>>> Find a complete list of my TBR on Goodreads <<<

I was hoping to start reading my own books in 2019, but I have so many pending ARCs that that just isn’t in the cards for now. Most of my January TBR is made out of ARCs, with a few backlist titles thrown in to mix things up. Although I’ll probably end up more backlist titles in the end. 😉

# TBR #

  • The Winter Sister by Megan Collins (336 pages) NETGALLEY

December 2018 TBR

I have no clue how this year can be already almost over, but it is what it is I guess… November ended up being a really successful month bookish wise, and I managed to read thirteen out of the fifteen books on my monthly TBR. I’m saving A Spark Of Light for next year, but as I type this I’ve finally started with Outlander… Fingers crossed it will treat me well.

>>> Find a complete list of my TBR on Goodreads <<<

I was going to spend December reading mostly my own books, but I have so many ARCs pending that that just isn’t going to happen. So more pending NG ARCs it is… I also still need to read two titles to finish two challenges (Outlander and Girl With A Pearl Earring), titles I’m hoping to finish before December 15th so I don’t have to worry about making the deadlines.

# TBR #

  • Here And Now And Then by Mike Chen (384 pages) NETGALLEY
  • Outlander by Diana Gabaldon (866 pages)
  • Sorry Not Sorry by Sophie Ranald (329 pages) NETGALLEY

November 2018 TBR

I can repeat once again that I can’t believe another month is over, but I guess that line is getting old. 😉 November though? Only two more months and we’ll be writing 2019 everywhere… My October TBR was pretty successful overall with eight out of ten titles read. I still want to read the other two, but they will have to wait until I have more time I guess.

>>> Find a complete list of my TBR on Goodreads <<<

I’m trying to get rid of most of my 2018 NG ARCs early so I can spend the last month of 2018 mostly reading my own books… But since I always like reading as many of the nominated Goodreads Choice Awards books each year, I’m sure I’ll end up reading more of those instead of ARCs. xD And YES, I’m finally going to brave reading Outlander, although I’m not sure if I’ll get to it before the end of the month. It’s taken me years already, so I guess a little while longer doesn’t do any damage. 😉

October 2018 TBR

Wait: it’s October?! As in, only three months of 2018 left?! Seriously where did all those months go… Last month’s N.E.W.T.s Readathon was a huge success (final post about that coming soon), and somehow I managed to read most of the books on the TBR. A true miracle if you ask me! I’ve decided to add only one of the remaining titles to this month’s TBR; the other titles will have to wait until later…

>>> Find a complete list of my TBR on Goodreads <<<

I’m a bit behind with my pending ARCs, so you’ll find a lot of ARCs on my October TBR. I was initially going for a full Halloween TBR, but since a lot of the ARCs are thrillers in the first place, I’ve decided to throw in a few different genres as well. I’ll be looking forward to these!
