Books I Missed in 2018 for Top 10 Tuesday

Top 10 Tuesday is a blog event hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

Top Ten Tuesday from

This is not the official topic for this week’s Top 10 Tuesday.  I have, however, been working on it, slowly, with many interruptions for the past month or so since it was the official topic.  Sometimes things are like that, even in Australia.

I also realized that I have a whole separate list of a dozen books that came out last year that I’m on hold for on Overdrive, and over a dozen that I’d missed and already read last month.  It never ends, so this is, as always, just a sample of the many, many books I’m interested in.  Let me know what’s on your list, too!

  • The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton (teen)
  • Beyond the Dreams We Know by Rachel Neumeier (teen? Adult?)
  • Black Dog Short Stories III by Rachel Neumeier (teen)
  • The Collectors by Jacqueline West (middle grade)
  • The Epic Crush of Genie Lo by F.C. Lee (teen)
  • The Fated Sky by Mary Robinette Kowal (adult)
  • Hearts Unbroken by Cynthia Leitich Smith (teen)
  • Housegirl by Michael Donkor (adult)
  • I’m OK by Patti Kim (middle grade)
  • Season of Styx Malone by Kekla Magoon (middle grade)
  • Trail of Lightning by Rebecca Roanhorse (adult)
  • You Don’t Know Everything, Jilly P! by Alex Gino (middle grade)

    Fun list! I haven’t read the first book of Mary Robinette Kowal’s series yet, but I do want to get to it. I’m really excited to read Trail of Lightning, too!

    I hope you enjoy all of these titles. I hadn’t heard of most of them, but I’m adding them to my TBR now. 🙂

    This is my Top Ten Tuesday post.

      Thank you! I make these lists every year, and have yet to read all the books on any of them – but I think I read more of them than I would if I didn’t make the lists.

  3. Oh, I want to read Trail of Lightening, and I’ve got the first of that Mary Robinette Kowal series but still haven’t read it. I assume you’ve read Black Dog 1 and 2 and the first sets of short stories? I really enjoy the short stories: I think Neumeier is at her best in that form. I can heartily recommend both these collections.

      Thank you for the approval on the short stories! Yes, I have read all the other Black Dog books… i usually buy them right away, so it’s a little surprising to me that I haven’t even tracked those books down yet.
