Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Wanted to Read in 2017 and Didn’t

A weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

1.) This Darkness Mine by Mindy McGinnis - Add to Goodreads
I read my first Mindy McGinnis book last year and I really liked it and wanted to read more. Despite the fact that I got a copy of this book at ALA I never read it. I want to read it.

2.) One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake - Add to Goodread
I also read my first Kendare Blake book last year. It was Three Dark Crowns, which I really liked. I got a copy of this at ALA but I never read it.

3.) The Scarecrow Queen by Melinda Salisbury - Add to Goodreads
I bought a copy of this book before it came out in the US so I could read it and I never did. I really need to finish this series. I'm super curious about it.

4.) The Arsonist by Stephanie Oakes - Add to Goodreads
Michelle let me borrow this and I planned to read it in both October and December but I never read it. It sounds like a total me book and Michelle knows my taste so I really trust her recommendation.

5.) Mask of Shadows by Linsey Miller - Add to Goodreads
I've heard good things about this book. I started reading it even but didn't take the time to finish it. I really would like to read it.

6.) That Inevitable Victorian Thing by E.K. Johnson - Add to Goodreads
I've enjoyed both of the E.K. Johnson books that I read and this one sounds really good and like a book that I would enjoy. I planned to read it a few times but always read other books.

7.) Ramona Blue by Julie Murphy - Add to Goodreads
I have read every single Julie Murphy book and she is one of my favorite contemporary authors and I still haven't read this one. I planned to get myself a copy but never did. I really need to get on that though. Maybe I'll listen to the audio.

8.) Tash Hearts Tolstoy by Katherine Ormsbee - Add to Goodreads
This is another book I wanted to get myself a copy of but never did. I love the concept and I heard that the main character is asexual which for my romancephobic heart sounds amazing. I really should read this book.

9.) Library of Fates by Adhita Kohri - Add to Goodreads
And yet another book that I wanted to get myself a copy of but didn't. I think this book sounds amazing and I really wanrt to read it but I never picked up a copy.

10.) In Other Lands by Sarah Rees Brennan - Add to Goodreads
I have not read any Sarah Rees Brennan but I have heard really good things. This book is also totally up my alley so it is probably a good one to start with.

There you have it, all the books I had wanted to read last year but didn't. What books made your list? Leave me a comment with your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY READING!


  1. I still need to read One Dark Throne too! Though unlike practically everyone else I know, I wasn't overly wowed with the first one. I thought I would give the second one a go before calling it quits. Hope you read all of these this year and love them!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  2. I have waaay too many books that I didn't get around to in 2017. It's just a shame really. xD

  3. I am a solid TDC fan. I loved what Blake did in ODT and cannot wait to get back to that story. Ramona was great too. Murphy always delivers a fabulous story. I see a bunch of book I would read if I had them ( The Arsonist, The Scarecrow Queen, Tash Hearts Tolstoy) and one I still want to read (and have - In Other Lands). I hope to get to those soon.

  4. There are so many books that I wanted to read in 2017 but didn't get to that I wouldn't even know where to start in making a list!
