top 5 tuesday: books I need to read in 2019

top 5 tuesday

Top Five Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm where bookworms get to chat about their top five books based on different topics.

A new feature for the new year! This week’s topic is ‘books I need to read in 2019’.

Renegades by Marissa Meyers


I’ve never read a Marissa Meyer’s book but I’ve heard great things about this series! I got this as a Christmas gift so I have no excuse not to pick it up!

Vicious by V. E. Schwab


Okay so this has been on my TBR for a very long time and yet I haven’t picked it up (don’t judge me pls). Last year, I got my hands on the pretty hardcover reprint along with the matching Vengeful (which was signed !!!!) so it’s a goal this year to read both.

Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan


I wanted to read this before the movie came out, and then I forgot. I wanted to read it when the movie came out and I forgot. I got this for Christmas and I will not forget to read it this year!!!

Skyward by Brandon Sanderson


I have been meaning to read Brandon Sanderson since forever but I’ve always been stupidly intimidated by them. Not this year!!!

On The Come Up by Angie Thomas


I adored The Hate U Give, was my favourite book of 2017 hands down, and now I find out that Angie Thomas is writing another book ????? You got me.

Phew….it was a lot harder to narrow the list down to five than I originally thought. It turns out I have a lot of things I’m looking forward to reading in 2019.

What’s on your must-read in 2019 list? Do we share any? Have you read any of the books above and want to urge me to read them ASAP? Leave me a message in the comments!

happy reading

    1. It does seem completely different to most books I’ve read with all the footnotes – it is the same set up in Terry Prachett’s The Hogfather.
      If you get around to reading them, let me know what you think! 🙂


  1. Welcome to Top 5 Tuesday!! Renegades was really good! I loved the blurred lines between good and evil. Both sides think they’re doing good…. and their powers were so unique!!! I hope to get to Archenemies soon 🙂 And Skyward is one that I’m starting at the end of this week! I’ve heard nothing but rave reviews about it! Hope you love all of these when you get to them
    Thanks for participating – added you to the list 🙂

    1. Thank you!!! 🙂
      Oooh the more I hear about Renegades the better it sounds – my january tbr is quite flexible at the moment so I may just read it next!
      I hope you enjoy Skyward and all the other books you’ve got on your top 5 to read! 🙂
      I look forward to participating next week!
