A Look Back At My 2019 Most Anticipated and How I Did (plus my new graphic for 2020)


As most of you know, I’m a mod for TBR and Beyond on facebook.  Each year, we’re asked (about 6 weeks before the years end) to list our favorites and our most anticipated.  I thought I would look back and see if I read the books I was so excited for at that time.


These were really in no particular order.  It was hard enough to narrow it down.




Swipe Right For Murder  Yes

Descendant of the Crane  Yes

These Witches Don’t Burn  Yes

King of Fools  Yes

The Gilded Wolves  Yes

Wicked Saints  Yes

Song of the Dead  Yes

Wicked Fox  No

Once & Future  Yes

Two Can Keep A Secret  Yes

We Rule The Night  Yes

Internment   No

Watch Us Rise  Yes

Soul of the Sword  No

Tiger Queen  Yes

Far From Agrabah  No

Queen of Ruin  Yes

Lady Smoke  Yes

Serious Moonlight  Yes

Four Dead Queens  No

Don’t Say A Word  Yes


I actually did really well.  I read 16 out of 21.



Here is my list for 2020


most ant 2020



I’ll check back in next year to see how I did.


Are you looking forward to any of these?  Did any of the 2019 books make your favorite list?

I'm Kristi. I'm a wife, mom, and grandma. I have been breeding leopard geckos for ten years. I love to read and have been trying to review more books (the reason for this blog besides wanting to talk about books with everyone). I also love music and going to concerts, mostly punk and pop punk.

    1. I’m sort of surprised in a way since I tend to pick up whatever I’m in the mood for. But I’ve gotten better at picking the books I think I’ll enjoy. Before I just read whatever I found on netgalley or kindle unlimited. I’ve gotten picky in the past couple of years since I started blogging.
