Ok, guys. We all have our insanely large TBRs and for the most part, they are books that we didn’t end up getting to last year. Or maybe you’re guilty of having some you didn’t even get to in 2016. And really, that’s okay. Because we will all most likely destroy our TBRs someday. But in the moment, it is really nice to have a wide selection of books to choose from on our shelves. Today’s Top 5 Wednesday topic is “Books You Didn’t Get To In 2017. Whether I physically own them or not, these five books are ones that I was hoping to read in 2017, but just didn’t have enough time to get to them. Let’s get started!
- Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas:
If any of you have been following my blog for a while, you would know that I am a huge fan of Sarah J. Maas’s works. Although a lot of people find her works to be problematic, I love how she has brought sexy male fae and kick-ass females into YA! But, Tower of Dawn has been the first release of hers that I haven’t been overly excited about. I was never a fan of Chaol, and didn’t care about the idea of a book being about him. But, after hearing people’s reviews and opinions about this book, it has slowly motivated me to read it. Although I still don’t have a copy of it, I plan to DEFINITELY buy one before the release of the final Throne of Glass book!
- Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist by Davis Levithan and Rachel Cohn:
I actually really REALLY wanted to get to this book in 2017. It’s super short and sounds like a cute contemporary. It involves music (OBVIOUSLY) and takes place in my dream city, New York City. But I just never felt like reading it last year. There were so many MORE appealing books on my shelf, that this one just ended up getting nice and dusty. But, seeing that this book is under 200 pages, I am definitely going to consider picking it up whenever I want a short, super easy read. And even, I’ll have a new movie to watch after finishing this book and possibly some new bands to listen to!!
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver:
I’m pretty sure everyone has heard of this book. Whether it was because of the recent release of the movie, or because you previously read it, I am FOR SURE that you have heard of it before. I have read one of Lauren Oliver’s works in the past, Delirium, and I really enjoyed it. Although I haven’t continued her Delirium series (I definitely need a re-read to do that), I am excited to start exploring some of her other works. Before I Fall may not be the happiest contemporary novel, but the plot has definitely captured my attention! Can’t wait to dive into this one!
Sweet Reckoning by Wendy Higgins:
A lot of you may already know this, but I love Wendy Higgins’s Sweet trilogy. But, I can only say that about the books I have read in the trilogy, since I am actually VERY guilty of not finishing it. It’s not that I don’t want to, but Chapters never actually has this in stock at my local store. And it really isn’t often that I buy books online so I just haven’t got to buying it yet. But, I am for sure going to be prioritizing this book in 2018! I’m super excited to jump back into this AMAZING series and possibly give the first two books a re-read.
Cress by Marissa Meyer:
yes, I am STILL guilty of NOT finishing the Lunar Chronicles. I’m pretty sure that 2018 is the second year since I finished Cinder and I am still on halfway through this series. But, I absolutely loved the first two books and just know that I am also going to love the rest of the series. I’ve heard nothing but raving reviews about the rest of the series and cannot wait to read it. And even, I really don’t have any excuses for not getting to Cress since it is ALWAYS at my local bookstore, I have spotted it at used book sales and it has a super reasonable price, even for Canadians.
And that is it for today! Are there any books that you didn’t get to in 2017? Let me know which ones you plan to prioritize this year! Also, don’t forget to like this post and follow my blog to stay up to date with all of my future posts!
