Top 10 Books to Read Before 2019 + Giveaway

Posted October 20, 2018 by Francesca in Front Page, Under the Covers, Weekend Highlight / 38 Comments

I’ve been trying to come up with my reading list of things I want to clear up my TBR before the end of the year, and I want to look back at older(ish) releases not just new releases.  So that’s what this list is about.  Those “not-new-releases” books that I want to read now.  Have you heard of any of this?  Have you read them?

 

What books do you want to read before 2019?

 

Under the Covers is graciously giving away

Signed Carrie Ann Ryan tote bag + swag from various authors + SIGNED copy of ORDER OF PROTECTION by Lexi Blake + 3 books (you won’t know which ones until you open your package!)

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.

You are definitely a woman with a plan. 🙂 I loved that Gail Carriger series. Golden Spider, Indigo Girl, and Wolf Song look good, too. I have three or four of those Kym Grossos, too. I just finished up my original list for Romance Roundabout. I felt such a sense of accomplishment. Cheering you on to finish strong.

You have two of my favorite books on your list!! Blameless is so smart and funny. Blood Ties is one of the best mystery books I’ve ever read. And the heroine is amazing! I am trying to catch up on the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich so I have to say that I want to read Sizzling Sixteen.

I’ve heard of Blameless by Gail Carriger but to be honest it’s not on my current TBR. I’d like to squeeze at least 2 non-fiction books before 2019, Witches, Sluts, Feminists by Kristen J. Solle, and Keep Marching by Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner… but I don’t think that’s going to happen because every week I get distracted by new romance releases! LOL

Oh Fran, my TBR is miles high!! I keep rereading my fav series this year, over and over and over, yet my TBR continues to grow. So, there’s that. Never knew that Lorilei James and Lori Armstrong were one in the same!! Thanks for the info!! Wolfsong and Kade’s Dark Embrace are now on my radar. I’m aiming for this year, however, your partner in crime, Suz, got me hooked on Scifi erotic and non erotic romance earlier this year. The more 7 foot, non-earthling, tentacled, winged, scaled, furred, horned, fanged, tailed otherworldly alpha males the better!! Let’s get lost… Read more »

I seriously need to catch up on the DH worlds of Sherrilyn Kenyon, BDB world of JR Ward and a finally start the Archangels series by Naini Singh. Hasn’t been a lot of time for me to read lately.

I’ve started and am now almost done with the Breeds series and I agree with Francesca that some of them have too much sex in them. At one point I thought they were by different authors, because it seemed like there was no plot, just the sex. Now I’m on some of the later books and they are much more plot heavy. There are two things I’m sad that it doesn’t seem will happen; 1. I won’t find out why David has been mean to baby Amber, and is it because she’s his mate and he knows this too early?… Read more »

Oh my! Too many to mention. It seems my KU is always maxed out! And my tbr list in four digits, at least, maybe five. That being said, I have a couple of Sophia Oak/Lexi Blake books I need to read. Chasity Bowlin has a couple books coming out on my pre-order list. Riptide, Landslide, and Strictly Business by Kathryn Nolan. So much to read, so little time. aka Becky
