TTT #124 – Books I Meant To Read in 2017 But Didn’t Get To

One of the most frustrating thing as a reader is how many books there are that you want to read versus how much time you actually have. In the grand scheme of things, that just doesn’t seem fair. Even if we could all read the whole day I doubt we’d be able to get through all those books. There are just too many.

So it must come as no surprise to any of you that there were certain books in 2017 I had meant to read but didn’t end up getting to. I decided to split this list up in two. First 2017 releases, and then books released before 2017 I’ve been meaning to get to for most of the year.

Top Ten Tuesday is as always created by The Broke and the Bookish.

Revocatie (De Demon van Fellswyck 2) by Jurgen Snoeren
Shadowcaster (Shattered Realms 2) by Cindia Williams Chima

  1. The Name of the Wind is something I also still need to read!
    I tried reading Graceling I couple of years ago but somehow I wasn’t into YA Fantasy at that time (I probably lied to myself back then because how I can I not be in a YA Fantasy mood) definitely going to give that one another try!
    Great TTT! 😊

  2. Invictus is one I definitely want to read. A Closed and Common Orbit is one that I enjoyed a lot. Hope you get to lots of these in 2018!

  3. Great list!
    I really want to read The Name of the Wind too. I’ve had that book for so long now I don’t know why it never finds its way to the top of my TBR list.
    I also have the first Becky Chambers book on my TBR as well 🙂

  4. I haven’t read any of the 2017 releases, but I’ve read a few of the older ones. Fire is one of my favorite books! I liked it so much more than Graceling (although I did enjoy Graceling more the second time around than I did the first). I ship it so hard!

  5. A lot of these are on my TBR still as well, like Invictus, Norse Mythology, The Last Magician and Name of the Wind. And some series I’m hoping to start, like the Shattered Realms and Bone Season series. I did read and love the Graceling and Half Bad series, so hope you will too!

  6. Die And so many more aan het einde is wel heel herkenbaar. Ik ben eindelijk zo ver dat ik Wintersong kan gaan lezen. Maar ook Hunted (jouw leuke cadeau) staat nog te wachten. Al ga ik daar tussen waarschijnlijk eerst even iets anders lezen dat géén hervertelling is. Momenteel liggen er immers geen recensieboeken op me te wachten. Enkel nog een recensie die ik moet uitwerken maar verder kan ik dus volop boeken uit die omvangrijke tbr uitkiezen.
