#MustReadin2019 9/12/2019

Today is the Fall update on my #MustReadin2019 reading progress. This was my first year to participate and I listed 42 “must read” books that I really hoped to slip into my regular weekly reading. In 2019, so far I’ve read 212 books and I am just about to finish book 27 today from my “must read” list. I do think I may be rolling 2 or 3 books over my 2020 list, but we’ll just see how these last four months of the year go.

These are the books I still have left to finish (minus Children of Virtue and Vengeance by Tomi Adeyemi, which hasn’t yet been released and its publication date was pushed back to December 3rd):

  1. I have Hearts Unbroken and Six of Crows, still haven’t picked them up, but I’m sure I will someday. Isn’t that the way we all do, pass over a book for still another new one? Lots to love on your list (s), Shaye. I imagine you’ll enjoy whatever’s next!

  2. I think you are doing very well on your list. I was hoping to get a copy of Momentous Events, but I couldn’t. My pre-order still has not shipped, but I am looking forward to it. Of the ones you have left there are several great books. Scythe is the one I enjoyed the most! Good luck.


  3. Nice job on your list! I really enjoyed Ivy and Merci along with Hey Kiddo. I wish you well on finishing up this year of reading.
