Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish wherein each week bloggers list out their Top Ten. This week it is about the ones that got away – the books I wanted to read in 2017 but somehow ended up not reading. Actually, a month-long challenge going on right now is about this very thing – it is called the January Jam Jar and it is about reading books that were on your TBRs in 2017, and I thought well since my TBR for that challenge has exactly 10 books, it is perfect for this week’s prompt!
Now firstly you gotta know I have been sooooo uber serious about this challenge, and have already read Rosemarked and Wonder Woman: Warbringer from these. Next up for reading are Midnight Jewel and then Strange the Dreamer.
As for the others, well, I am not too hyped about A Court of Wings and Ruin – I was excited until I heard a couple of weeks before release that it is problematic. Since I had already pre-ordered the book and it arrived, I have it sitting on my shelf and I have resigned myself to reading it.
Another one sitting on my shelves is Lord of Shadows, which is mainly because of its size and me not finding good time to read it. One Dark Throne – I have a galley but I missed out on reading it, and now I have so many other frontlist galleys clamoring for my attention I thought the best way to motivate me to read it ASAP is to put it in a challenge.
And finally, I have yet to get the books for The Crown’s Fate, Defy the Stars and Blacksouls but since I’m planning to get ebooks for them anyway (trying not to buy any print books this year) I’ll do that when their number comes up from the jar.
