Did I finish my 2019 tbr?

*A few months ago I made a 2019 tbr. This was just a list of books/series that I wanted to read before 2019 was over. I got curious the other day to see if I actually read any of the books on that list. So this blog post is just to find out what happened to those books. Did I read them or not?

did I finish my 2019 tbr?


Series to Finish:

Throne of Glass -Yes! I did finish this series.
Nevernight Chronicles -I didn't finish this series, although I did read Nevernight so I count that as a win.
The Lord of the Rings -Haha. Nope. I read The Fellowship of the Ring but that's as far as I got.
The Lunar Chronicles -Yes! I finished this series this year.
Red Rising Saga - I finished the original trilogy so I'll count that as a yes too.
Stalking Jack the Ripper -Nope! I did read the first two books in the series though.
Falling Kingdoms -This is a big NOPE. I managed to read the first 3 books in this series before I decided to stop wasting my time with it.
The Selection -I finished the original trilogy. So....yes? lol.
A Darker Shade of Magic Trilogy -No I did not finish this series. And I just recently unhauled them to my local library. ๐Ÿ˜


Singles/Debuts:

These are books that are an author's first work or the sequels haven't been released yet.

The Wren Hunt -No I didn't read this but it's on my tbr for 2020!
Four Dead Queens - No. Unhauled it.
The Beast Player -Nope again. Unhauled it.
The Storm Crow - No I didn't. But it's on my 2020 tbr!
The Merciful Crow -Again no. On my 2020 tbr.
Wicked Saints -Nope! My husband read it and hated it so I decided to unhaul it as well.
Wicked Fox -Nope. But it's on my 2020 tbr.
Romanov -Yes! I did finish this one. I read it in December 2019.
King of Scars -Nope. On my 2020 tbr.
Nocturna -Again another no. On my 2020 tbr.

Series to start:

Series I'd like to start in 2019.

Six of Crows -Nope. After I finished the Shadow and Bone trilogy I was not ready to read another Leigh Bardugo book. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
Seraphina -No I didn't start this series. But I want to in 2020.
Greatcoats -I unhauled the two books I had from this series. I started the first book and I was super not into it. 
Night Angel trilogy -No! But I really want to start it soon. 
Shatter Me -Again no. I want to read these but I'm super hesitant to start it. Not sure why.
Grim Lovelies - No. Again, hesitant to read this series. 
Three Dark Crowns -Nope. Unhauled to my local library.
Assassin's Creed (by, Oliver Bowden) -Ugh! No, I still haven't started this series.
This Savage Song - Nope. I want to but also hesitate because I didn't care for A Darker Shade of Magic.

Sequels:

The answers to all my questions! Or at least more questions that need answers.

Soul of the Sword - No I didn't read this in 2019. I started it in January 2020 and had to set it aside because it was putting me in a reading slump. Which is so sad because I LOVED the first book, Shadow of the Fox.

Reread:

I love rereading books! Here are the ones I want to read again before 2019 is over.

Abhorsen series -This reread didn't happen, but it's on my tbr for this month! I'm so excited!
Rebel Angels -No I didn't finish this reread but this year I'll definitely get to it.
The Sight - Didn't get to it.
Fire Bringer -Nope.
A Court of Thorns and Roses series -Yes! I did reread this series. And ๐Ÿ˜
Harry Potter series -I started this last year. But I only made it through the first book. ๐Ÿ˜…

Books that haven't been released yet:

Starsight -Yes! I did read this one last year but I didn't really care for it. 
The Deep -I didn't read this one and that's cause I don't own a copy of it. Rarely will I read books that I don't already own.

So let's gather some facts.

I wanted to read 13 books, finish 9 series, start 9 series, and reread 6 series/books.

+ Of the books I wanted to read, I unhauled 3 of them, read 2 and transferred 7 to my 2020 tbr.
+ Of the series I wanted to finish, I read 4 unhauled 2, and transferred 3 to my 2020 tbr.
+ Of the series I wanted to start, I started 0 of them๐Ÿ˜‚unhauled 2 of them and transferred 7 of them to my 2020 tbr.
+ Of the books/series I wanted to reread, I finished 1 of them and transferred the rest to my 2020 tbr.

I don't think that's too bad considering I didn't make any of these a priority. Well, maybe Starsight. But other than that I didn't focus on reading any of these books. I'm impressed I even got as many read as I did. 

This was a lot of fun! I'm definitely looking forward to doing this at the end of 2020!

Happy reading,
