I waited 18 months for this book to release, bought it on release day, brought it home and put it next to the others on the bookshelf. I couldn't bring myself to read it. I know I'll take an emotional battering with this book and I'm just not ready.
It was all anybody spoke about last January and it continually cropped up throughout the year. I really wanted to read it, and I bought it when it was on a sale, but I never bothered reading it. I don't know if it was because by the time I bought it, the burning urge to read it had passed, or if it was reading the feedback of so many others on how it's quite a slow and difficult read with characters who are challenging but I just never got into the mood for it.
That said, I still want to read it and now that book two is available, I'm more likely to do so.
I bought this on a 99p sale. I heard so many good things. I love the cover and the blurb. But, the mood just never struck. Hopefully, I'll get to it this year.
I love urban fantasy and this sounds so awesome but, once again, I've heard things that make me hesitate. I know I will read it, I just have to be ready for it. Since I don't own this already, I imagine I'll wait until the next book in the series releases before going for it.
All the love for this book has made it one I absolutely need to read. The need built every time I saw another awesome review for it.
The thing that stopped me? The price!
It's over £12 for a kindle version... That's insane. Seriously, £12.99 for kindle. £6.99 for the paperback. Where is the logic in that?!
I fan-girl about Ilona Andrews every chance I get. I love their characters, their writing, the worlds they create and they have very little published that I've left to read.
The Hidden Legacy series, is awesome and I was so excited it was continuing. I pre-ordered this immediately and waited months and months for it to hit my kindle... Then it landed on my birthday and I never read it.
I blame moving house, planning a wedding, and having the plague throughout most of December.
I love the cover. I love the blurb. Once again, I own the book. I have no reason for having not read it. I just haven't.
I started reading it then got caught up in the chaos that was my life Sept-December and never finished it. I really need to read this one this year... I was really really enjoying it when I stopped, plus - shudders in horror - it was an ARC.
*hangs head in blogger shame*
I've wanted to read a Lauren Blakely novel for a while and this sounded like it'd be so much fun so I bought it... And didn't read it. Again, no reason, just haven't.
NA, Urban Fantasy. Awesome blurb. Great word of mouth. Bought it (obviously), didn't read it.
I solemnly swear to read all of the above this year and be better about collecting books I really want to read and then not actually reading them.
What about you? What did you not get around to reading last year?
