Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week is the Ten Books We Meant To Read In 2017 But Didn’t Get To (and totallyyyy plan to get to in 2018!!).

All things considered, I real a vast majority of the books I had intended to read in 2017. That being said, there were a few that I didn’t get around to, due to not enough time and also choosing some newer books over the older ones. So here they are, in no particular order.

  1. Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry. This one has been one of those books where I have said I would read it this year, for the last few years, but have never gotten around to it. Really, really hoping 2018 is the year I read it.
  2. Blue Diablo by Ann Aguirre. I have enjoyed many of Ann Aguirre’s books, and I wanted to start this series in 2017, but just didn’t quite get around to it.
  3. Tigana by Guy Gavriel Kay. I’ll admit, the size of this one makes me keep putting it off. But hopefully 2018 will be when I get around to this one.
  4. Tales of Watership Down by Richard Adams. I put off reading this one in 2017 simply because I wanted to reread Watership Down first, which obviously also didn’t happen, before diving into it.
  5. Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake. I’m actually starting to wonder if I will read this one or not. Maybe I will get to it in 2018, but I don’t know, the more I think about it and the more reviews on it I see, the less I want to read it.
  6. Destiny: Child of The Sky by Elizabeth Haydon. First, I need to finish reading the previous book in the series, Prophecy, but I would like to read this one, and perhaps the rest of the series, in 2018 since I didn’t get around to them in 2017.
  7. Winter by Marissa Meyer. I didn’t want this series to end, so I put off reading this one, but now I will be reading it at the beginning of 2018 so that I can enjoy it and move onto Stars Above.
  8. Uprooted by Naomi Novik. This is another one that I’m starting to rethink my desire to read it, but perhaps I will get to it in 2018.
  9. Howl`s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones. I don’t even know why I didn’t read this one in 2017, but I definitely will in 2018, and then I will rewatch the anime as well.
  10. I, Robot by Issac Asimov. I’m only going to read this one because my husband thinks I might like it, so since I didn’t get to it in 2017, then hopefully I will in 2018.

  1. ‘Tales From Watership Down’? I didn’t even know that was a thing! I read ‘Watership Down’ so long ago I’d probably need to reread it too. I read ‘Three Dark Crowns’ but didn’t get to ‘One Dark Throne yet, which is a little disappointing for me! I really hope you get to finish ‘Winter’ soon, it’s SO good. I only just got to read ‘Fairest’ though, and plan to read ‘Stars Above’ in 2018! ‘Howl’s Moving Castle’ is a lovely tale though I think I prefer the film. As for ‘Uprooted’, it has been on my TBR for so long but is very high up! I REALLY want to read it! Good luck with all of these 🙂

    Feel free to check out my TTT list 🙂

    • I only found out about Tales From Watership Down by chance. I think a lot of people dont realize that there is a sequel to the book. Im really looking forward to Winter, but at the same time, I just dont want the series to be over with. Ive heard a number of people say they like the movie of Howls Moving Castle better than the book, so Ill have to see what I think once Ive read it.
