As I excitedly get going on my TBR for 2018, I have to take a good look back at all the books I didn’t quite get to in 2017. This week’s theme from The Broke and the Bookish helped me narrow down which books I am the most sad about having missed, and will definitely get to this year. Here are the Top Ten Books I Meant to Read in 2017!
The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman
This one is killing me the most. I have been wanting to read it ever since I heard it was coming out, and because of my book buying ban, I haven’t had a chance to get it yet. I WILL get it soon, and I will finally read it.
The House at Riverton by Kate Morton
I fell in love with Kate Morton after reading The Forgotten Garden last year, and I ordered this on ThriftBooks immediately after finishing because I couldn’t wait to read another one of her books…. and I haven’t gotten to it UNTIL NOW! I just started reading, and after the first chapter I knew it was going to be magic. Now I remember why I wanted another one of her books so badly.
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
I keep putting this off until I get through some of my other series, but I will FINALLY get to it this year. Most likely sooner rather than later. My roommate liked it more than ACOTAR, which I loved, so I’m excited.
The Black Witch by Laurie Forest
I impulsively bought this book when I went for a different release because I HAD to have it. I have a problem. Still haven’t read it, but I want to get to it before the feeling of “newness” wears off. It keeps staring at me on my shelf.
A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab
I read A Darker Shade of Magic last April, and I was kind of indifferent about it. Since everyone seems to love this series so much, I really want to try the second one and see if I can finally get on the band wagon.
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
I NEED this book. I can’t wait to read it. Another one affected by my book buying ban… Oh wallet why can’t you be fuller!?
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
I am all about this story, and I need some more non-fantasy books in my life right now. This just sounds so up my alley.
The Lonely Hearts Hotel by Heather O’Neill
I almost broke my book buying ban yesterday and got this… I have been captivated by this cover and summary ever since I first saw it, and it’s killing me not to own it.
Valley of the Dolls by Jacqueline Susann
This is one of my friend’s favorite books of all time, and I have been wanting to read it for a while. I bought it last year to read for my Classics Club Challenge, and never got around to reading it.
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
I have no excuses for why I haven’t read this yet. It has been on my TBR FOREVER. It’s actually embarrassing that I haven’t read this yet. This is the year. It’s happening.
