Books I Meant To Read In 2017 But Didn’t
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they post a new Top Ten list that members at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone join as you please. This week’s topic is Top Ten Books I Meant To Read In 2017 But Didn’t.
2017 was a crazy year for me and I read over 170 books. But there was still plenty that I never got around to reading. Today I thought I would share some of the books that I really wanted to read in 2017, but it just didn’t happen. Some of these are 2017 releases, some are older. And like always these are in no particular order.
This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab: I read the Shades of Magic books this and really enjoyed them. So I really wanted to give more of her books a read, but just never got around to it. I love Schwab’s writing style and I adore her world building. I cannot wait to read more of her books.
Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo: I seriously don’t know why I haven’t read this one yet. I don’t know why. I am a massive superhero fan and while I don’t love DC. Women Woman is one of my favourite superheroes of all time. I mean look at her. So I cannot wait to finally pick it up.
Nevernight by Jay Kristoff: Yes I have had this since it came out. Yes, I went to the launch. And yes I haven’t read. I do have a reason though. The hype scares me. I’ve been hesitant to pick Nevernight up because of all the hype that surrounds it. I want to love it, I really do.
Take Three Girls by Cath Crowley Fiona Wood and Simmone Howell: I just want to read a good Aussie book, by some amazing Aussie authors. #LoveOzYA
Nevermoor by Jessica Townsend: Said to be like Alice in Wonderland and Harry Potter. This middle grade seems perfect for me. I’ve had so many young kids came and pick this one up at work and I cannot wait to read it for myself. I actually bought it for 2 of my cousins at Christmas too.
Dear Martin by Nic Stone: This was on the top of my TBR at the end of last year. But it never got picked up here in Australia, so I haven’t been able to buy it. So know I need to go online and try and find it. I am pretty sure it’s going to tear me apart, but I need to read it!
Girl Out of Water by Laura Silverman: Another one that I’ve wanted to read since the start of the year. It just sounds like my type of read. And that cover!
One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake: Not too sure why I haven’t read this one yet. Real confused. I loved Three Dark Crowns and I was so meant to read this as soon as it came out.
And that is it. There are probably heaps more – but I can’t think of them at the moment? What are the books that you were meant to read last year? Have you read any of these. Let’s Chat!
