Welcome Top Ten Tuesday to 2017! I skipped last week’s top ten tuesday post as I have problems each year with finding debuts that I honestly also pick up throughout the year. And quite frankly I don’t need the added pressure to my TBR, thank you very much.
So this week we are talking about 2016 releases we meant to read throughout that year but never got to. There are so many books that are released throughout a year that there are bound to be a few we didn’t get around to as we also try and read those backlist books. Here are some 2016 releases I didn’t get to. Some of these I pre ordered. I should be ashamed of myself.
What are some books you meant to get to in 2016?
- Truthwitch (The Witchlands 1) by Susan Dennard
I was super excited when this arrived on pre order in January last year, but my pregnancy reading slump prevented me from getting past page 30 or so and I never picked it back up after that. I’ve heard mixed things since then, but I am still curious to read it.
- Calamity (The Reckoners 3) by Brandon Sanderson
The ending to this trilogy was released early on in 2016 but I didn’t start reading this trilogy until later. I had meant to finish it this year but as you might have seen from my reviews, The Reckoners trilogy hasn’t been able to catch me like I thought it would.
- The Rose and the Dagger (The Wrath and the Dawn 2) by Renee Ahdieh
I mean, I still have to read the first book. But I thought I would have gotten to that one by now. But you know, those pesky pregnancy hormones and baby routines were and are getting in the way.
- Labyrinth Lost (Brooklyn Brujas 1) by Zoraida Cordova
I’ve heard such good things about this one that I can’t believe I haven’t actually picked it up yet.
- Nevernight (Nevernight Chronicle 1) by Jay Kristoff
It is so pretty! But I’ve been hearing mixed things so we will have to see.
- Replica (Replica 1) by Lauren Oliver
None of her other books really appealed to me before but with the two sides this seems interesting.
- Three Dark Crowns (Three Dark Crowns 1) by Kendare Blake
I initially wasn’t so sure about this but a lot of good sounds made me pick it up regardless. I’m still a bit hesitant though.
- A Shadow Bright and Burning (Kingdom on Fire 1) by Jessica Cluess
The pretty that is this cover though. It sounds like a typical young adult fantasy and I tend to like those so yeay. Just haven’t gotten around to it though.
