Top Ten Tuesday is hosted over at the other blog I write for, The Broke and the Bookish.
I suppose today’s post is kind of like a 2018 TBR? We’re talking about the books we had planned to read in 2017 but just didn’t get to for some reason. Sadly, my list is REALLY long because I fell into a major slump. I’m hoping 2018 is better to me, though! I’m excited about all the possibilities. I’m sharing with you 10 of the books I’m hoping to make a priority this year.
1. A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas
I loooove this series, but when ACoWaR came out I just wasn’t in the right frame of mind to read it. I tried to read it, but set it aside to finish later and never did. I really want to soon, though!
2. Greenglass House by Kate Milford
This sounds like the sweetest middle grade novel, perfect for winter time. I picked it up at ALA a few years ago and just never got to it. Now that the sequel has come out, I really want to read it!
3. The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan
I’ve heard great things and have been wanting to read this for quite some time now. It sounds like so much fun, and perfect for me right now.
4. My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows
I love these authors, love historical fiction, love the premise, and it has raving reviews. I MUST get to this one quickly.
5. When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon
This just sounds too cute to go unread.
6. Traitor to the Throne by Alwyn Hamilton
Rebel of the Sands was one of my favorite books last year, so I have no idea why I haven’t read this book yet.
7. Uprooted by Naomi Novik
I’ve been so intimidated by this book, and I don’t know why! It looks beautiful, it sounds beautiful, and it has gotten amazing reviews from the masses and from many people I trust. I need to just take the time and read it.
8. Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray
I loved A Thousand Pieces of You, but when this book came out I wasn’t in the mood and then I kept putting it off because it had been so long since the first book that I couldn’t remember what happened! And I don’t want to re-read… but I might have to. I really want to read this one and the third one!
9. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
I’ve NEVER read this book, but I really want to. I love the BBC series and I love Mr. Darcy so I really want to read P&P finally!
10. Sleepless in Manhattan by Sarah Morgan
I love Sarah’s books, I loved Miracle On 5th Avenue (book #3 in this series), so I’m excited to read the rest of it!
