How many of my most anticipated books of 2019 have I actually read? (Part 2)

Read the first part of this post here!

I’m back with the second part of this, I think it’s interesting to see how just within half a year I had more than half the books from the first part of 2019 in my most anticipated reads. Maybe that’s also because it feels like generally speaking there are a lot more books that get published in the first half of the year? But I also think that because I was going through a bit of a slump AND I was more attuned to my shifting tastes I was able to reduce the number of books I put on those lists.

While I wasn’t surprised that the amount of books was less, I was surprised to see how few I’ve head. Less than a third!! And out of those four, three were ARCs that I read months before their releases.

As you can see, some of them were also victims of The Massive TBR Removal Of January 2020, while others I simply haven’t gotten around to yet. The DNF was an ARC that I could’ve finished but decided it wasn’t worth my time.

I guess there’s not much else to say, so that’s it for this small series. Thanks for following along and I hope it didn’t come across as self-indulgent as it probably was!

    1. Dkdhd i think it was a mix of “this seems to be about a disease, am I sure I want to read that with everything that’s going right now?” and a gut feeling I might not love it?? I’m not sure anymore though skdhdkdh

        1. yeah that’s what i fear!! tbh i’m at a point where if i think something is going to be just meh, especially if it’s YA, i just remove it from my tbr and i feel so much lighter. It’s not like it’s going anywhere and if i wanna read it in the future i still can, i just won’t feel bad about not reading it in the meantime ghsklghs
