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.
