Top Ten Books We Meant To Read In 2017 But Didn’t Get To

This is a weekly blog meme by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is the top ten books I didn’t get to in 2017. I did the same topic for Top 5 Wednesday, which will show up tomorrow so I’ll put different books on this list. I have so many books that I intended to read in 2017 that it wasn’t hard to fill both lists!

The Waking Land (The Waking Land, #1)Even the Darkest Stars (Even the Darkest Stars #1)The Kiss of Deception (The Remnant Chronicles, #1)

  1. Even the Darkest Stars and It are also on my TBR-shelves, somewhere.. I think I’m going to be reading It in April, but I’m not sure yet. It’s such a monster of a book that I think I’ll have to plan reading that one.. Or at least plan it a little bit..

    1. I was planning to read It during a Tome Topple readathon round sometime this year, it’s the perfect incentive. But yes, it’s such a doorstopper of a book (plus I’ve been spoiled a bit for the ending and it does not sound like my cup of tea). I got Even the Darkest Stars in a book box and it’s such a pretty book, but I keep putting it off!
      Ah sounds like you actually plan your reading so you’ll probably get them read before me 😀

      1. Ooh, that’s a good idea as well!
        I don’t really plan-plan my reading, though. I just set myself some monthly challenges. Next month will be all about fantasy and I’m thinking about making April a month for King-books. Maybe there’s a Tome Topple then? I’m going to have to check! That would be brilliant, haha.

      2. I mostly take part in so many readathons which is how I direct my reading! Tome Topple is such a great readathon for tackling those books you want to read but are intimidated by. I don’t think I would have ever got round to Outlander without it!

      3. It always depends on my schedule, really. Family often demands last-minute planning in weekends which is annoying as hell when there’s a readathon going on, haha.
        I’m going to keep an eye out! As far as I saw – just took a quick look – there isn’t one planned in the near future yet.

    1. I’ve heard both good and bad things about Final Girls but I got a copy from the charity shop so I’m going to read it sometime. I can’t wait to read the illustrated edition of PoA, they are absolutely gorgeous!

      1. I really liked the book itself, I just don’t like the fact that the author is actually a man trying to manipulate women into reading his book. 😡

      2. I heard about that, yeah. I was fine with a man writing under a female penname but the reason he gave was… no. It does make me very glad I got my copy from a charity shop though (and it will probably go straight back there afterwards).

    1. I haven’t seen The Waking Land on a lot of people’s lists but I’ve been really intrigued by the summary and the cover.
      You too! 😀

    1. I have a feeling I will like it so I got the sequel out of the library as well so I could read it directly afterwards. Fingers crossed!
