Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.
I was spoiled for options for this weeks topic. This is why I never set a reading list for each month because I will never stick to them. There were a lot of great books I fully intended to read in 2017, but, as always, life and my mood reading tendencies got in the way. Here are the 10 books I planned on reading in 2017 but never did. Hopefully, I can get to reading them this year.
Also, as this is the final topic that will be hosted by The Broke and Bookish, I just wanted to take the time to give the ladies over there a HUGE thank you for all the time they’ve put into this over the years.
1. The Flame and the Mist by Renée Ahdieh: The hype that came with Ahdieh’s latest release was insane, and with that comes a lot of high expectations. So, I didn’t read the book because I wanted to wait until the hype had cooled off and I could go into the book with a more level head.
2. Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett: A book I kept meaning to read. This year was a strange one for me in terms of my relationship with contemporary novels. I found that I was drawn to New Adult books most of the time so I read very few Young Adult contemporary novels. I hope to rectify that situation as soon as possible.
3. Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor: Again, this relates to my reading habits of last year as I was drawn to a lot more contemporary novels instead of fantasy. I’m so excited to get my teeth sunk into the book.
4. Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff: Another one I just wasn’t in the mood for. I have no idea what to expect from this book except for the fact that it will be ruthless and bloody.
5. Until it Fades by K.A. Tucker: I was ready to read this book back in November, but then this horrible slump hit me.
6. Bountiful by Sarina Bowen: I didn’t read this because of the slump as well. However, as everyone knows, my love for sports contemporary novels is limitless right now. So, it’s a guarantee that I’ll read this book by the end of this year.
7. Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson: Yes, this book is still sitting on the to-read list. I have no excuses, and if I’ve not read this book by the end of the year, you all have permission to scold me.
8. Wayfarer by Alexandra Bracken: Admittedly, my interest in this book has waned a lot recently. I thought the first book was okay but very slow in its pace and that’s what I’m dreading about this book.
9. Invictus by Ryan Graudin: This was actually a conscious choice. You see, I’ve been on a mission recently, and that is to read as much of the books I already own instead of buying new ones. It’s a slow process, but hopefully by doing that I’ll save a bit more money and shelf space. However, Santa was kind enough to treat me to this book so I can read it in the near future.
10. Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley: I added this book to my to-read list last year and had every intentions of reading it as soon as possible. I’ve heard nothing but wonderful things about this book so I can’t wait to see for myself why that is.
Those are the books I didn’t read last year and intend to do so this year?
Which books were you meant to read but didn’t?
