Hello bookworms!
It has been almost 3 months since I have done a Top 5 Tuesday post and that makes me feel like a major slacker. I love doing these and I love reading every one else’s posts as well. Today’s topic is Top 5 Books I Need to Read in 2019. Whew.. this is going to be one shameful, embarrassing post since there are books that I NEEDED to read in 2018 and never got to. Let’s get into it!

If you are not familiar, Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm. She has topics for every week and if you have an idea for a topic, then send your suggestions her way.

1. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
This is first for obvious reasons. I told myself at the beginning of 2018 that I needed to read this and though, I did start it in December, I decided not to continue with it because I needed to read shorter books to complete my Goodreads reading goal. Also, I just wasn’t in the mood for something deep and thought provoking.


2. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
Another book that I told myself to read last year but obviously didn’t get to it. This book is so well loved and the author has a new book coming out in 2019 that everyone seems to be pumped about and I want to be excited too!

alice's adventures in wonderland1

3. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
This is a classic that everyone loves. So why haven’t I read it? I honestly have no clue so that’s why I’m making it a priority for 2019.


4. City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
Last year I made a Top 5 Tuesday post for top 5 series I wanted to read in 2018 and I only read 1 series on that list. So, for 2019 I’m making the Mortal Instruments a must read!

salt to the sea1

5. Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys
I received this book as a Christmas present 2 years ago and it’s just been sitting on my shelves since then. It has great reviews and was a Goodreads Choice 2016 winner so I just need to take the plunge and read it already.

I’m really so excited to read all of these and I’m going to try my best to get to them all at some point this year. What books are a priority for you in 2019? Thanks for reading!!RachaelInstagramPinteresttumblrTwitter
