Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Meant To Read In 2017 But Didn’t Get To


Top Ten Tuesday was originally hosted over at The Broke and The Bookish and is now over at Jana’s blog, That Artsy Reader Girl.

I’ve just realised that this is my first top ten Tuesday of 2018 and I’m glad that I’m getting back to a routine with my blog. The Top Ten Tuesdays are here to stay! This weeks topic is all about the books we wish we had gotten around to reading in 2017. For this topic I am purely sticking to books that were published last year.

1. Carve The Mark by Veronica Roth


When I heard about this book, I thought it sounded interesting and as I loved Divergent, I figured I’d give this a try. There seems to be some mixed reviews, but I still want to check it out.

2. Caraval by Stephanie Garber


This book has seemed to divide a lot of people and those are the ones I want to read this most. It definitely gives me Night Circus vibes (a book that also divided opinions) so fingers crossed I can read it before the sequel comes out this year.

3. Warcross by Marie Lu


I’ve seen this book being talked about everywhere (literally everywhere). It sounds amazing and something that I wouldn’t normally read. This year I am trying to venture out of my comfort zone and I can’t wait to check out this one.

4. Wonder Woman: Warbringer


Once again, another book I have seen everyone reviewing and honestly, I felt like I was missing out. Even though I haven’t even seen the Wonder Woman movie yet (I’m terrible, I know) I love superheroes so I’m bound to love this.

5. The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell


Even though I didn’t get around to reading this book last year, I finally have it! I can’t wait to get stuck in and see what people have been loving about it.

6. The Glass Spare by Lauren DeStefano


I read DeStefano’s The Chemical Garden series a while back and enjoyed them, so when I heard about The Glass Spare I was excited to check it out. Unfortunately, there are only so many books a girl can buy.

7. Renegades by Marissa Meyer


To me, this sounds like sci-fi and dystopian, which are genres that I want to get back into reading and I have to say, this book sounds great! Hopefully I can find the time to read it this year.

8. The Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli


There have been tonnes of amazing reviews for this book and I’ve been wanting to get my hands on it since I first read the synopsis. It sounds exactly like the type of book that I enjoy.


So it seems I was only able to come up with eight books I missed out on reading (at least, the ones I really wanted to read). What books would have made your top ten?

  1. I had Carve the Mark and Caraval on my list as well. I started to read the Night Circus and ended up marking it as DNF, but I’m still interested to see what Caraval is like. I’m super stoked that I got Warcross on e-book sale a few days ago. I’m really looking forward to reading it and seeing why everyone loves it so much. Great list!

  3. I own Carve the Mark, Caraval, Wonder Woman: Warbringer, and Renegades and I have yet to read them. Carve the Mark sounds good, but all the controversy gave me some pause. I did watch the Wonder Woman film last month and in my opinion it was fantastic, it made me excited to read the book.

  4. Oooh Warcross and The Last Namsara are two of my favourite reads of this year so far – I really loved them! I think they were both pretty hyped though which can be tough, it’s hard to live up to massive expectations xx

    1. Hyped books are always a tough one, reading Zenith had proven that because their were so many amazing reviews, and bad ones, and unfortunately I think it hasn’t lived up to the expectations for me 😦 I’m going to try and finish it though
