Planned Reading for 2019

Last year I read almost every book that I put on my Planned Reading for 2018. I didn’t re-read Vampire Academy because there were so many new books that I wanted to read instead.

Still, I try not to judge an author by the first book that I read from them (which is why I made the idiotic choice of reading a second Maas book when I already despised Throne of Glass), and decided to give Heartless a go.
