Top 10 Tuesday — Books I Had All Intentions of Reading in 2018. Epic Fail!

22 Jan

I have the best intentions when it comes to reading. But alas my eyes are larger than my time constraints. So some really good books are left unread. Determined to read from books I got last year, I did whittle the list down by 2 this month. A weak start, but I will take it. The books on my list are in my possession and desperately need reading. Maybe I will be more successful in 2019. What about you? Did your pile grow much in 2018?

      Some are British mysteries, some are Christian fiction authors.

    I’d go for Death of a Jester first.

    This is my Top Ten Tuesday post.

    Pat Bradley’s! I need to catch up on hers. I have the first two but need them all! Then The Lady of Tarpon Springs because I love historicals. And I also have Suzanne Fisher’s book. Lots from last year I haven’t got to yet! There are so many coming up that are from my favorite authors! And they look soooo good!

      I actually have a couple in Bradley’s series to read, but this one fit into the 2018 category. 😉

    Of all the books on your list, I highly recommend getting to Isaiah’s Daughter. It’s wonderful!

      Good to hear! I bought it to use in a Bible study, but didn’t follow through. I like Andrews, so I know I will like it when I fit it into my reading schedule. (Sometimes I hate that I have a “reading schedule”!)

    Ooo, I’m going to say Isaiah’s Daughter – one I’ve been meaning to read, too!

    • rbclibrary January 22, 2019 at 10:57 pm #

      It is definitely one I want and need to read.

    I see Isaiah’s Daughter. Yikes, I wanted to get to that one! Minding the Light is great, but you really need to read the first and third books in the series also! I did enjoy The Lady of Tarpon Springs!

      I have read both books 1 &3 in Fisher’s series. But I didn’t get to book 2; such a shame! I lived in Tarpon Springs the first year of my marriage and know I have got to read Miller’s book!
