Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
My first TTT of 2017 is a look back at 2016. A ton of incredible books came out that I 100% planned to read…and didn’t. Here are some that I still plan to read (hopefully).
1. Firsts by Laurie Elizabeth Flynn
I was so drawn in by the concept of this book, but I was just…never in the mood to actually sit down and read it.
2. This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab
I have been meaning to read more by Schwab forever, and I honestly though 2016 would be my year. Hopefully it will be 2017. 🙂
3. Gemina (Illuminae #2) by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman
I don’t blame myself for not having the emotional courage or energy to read this book. Besides, it has been getting mixed reviews, and I do not want to have my hopes dashed. Still, I have to know what happens next in this amazing series.
4. And I Darken by Kiersten White
I love the idea of this book, and rave reviews have given me hope that it lives up to its potential. I honestly have no excuse for not reading it besides that I never bought it for myself.
5. Girl Against the Universe by Paula Stokes
This book has been on my radar forever. I keep coming back to it, though I have yet to buy or read it—something I want to fix.
6. My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows
My sister just read this book and LOVED IT. I feel ridiculous for not picking it up sooner, but I plan to ASAP.
7. The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi
From everything I’ve heard, this book has incredibly gorgeous prose, which I need more of in my life.
8. P.S. I Like You by Kasie West
Kasie West always surprises me with how she is able to take a flippant premise and create an adorable, sweet, and thought-provoking story. I want to read more of her work, and the synopsis of this one is A+.
9. Blood for Blood (Wolf by Wolf #2) by Ryan Gruadin
Another sequel I held off from to save my emotions. When it came out, I was not ready to read it—but I cannot go an entire year without finishing this ridiculously powerful duology.
10. The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner
This book (for me) came out of nowhere and took over the blogging world. I think it will ruin me emotionally, but sometimes that is worth it.
What 2016 releases did I miss? I always want to increase my TBR, especially with books that might not be on my radar yet!
What books do you plan to read in 2017?
