TOP TEN TUESDAY
Top ten books I meant to read in 2017
Well friends, it’s 2018. That means it’s time for us book bloggers to ban together in our guilt for all the books we didn’t read in the previous year. Since I just started this blog in July I feel extra behind, but I’m starting to realize I’m not alone in that feeling. Phew! So behold!! My guilt list of 2017!
This past year has been the year of female empowerment (#TimeIsUp – Who else weeped listening to Oprah’s acceptance speech???? 😭) and this book helped play a part in that. I haven’t read it myself, but I’ve heard so many amazing things from fellow bloggers that I’m DYING to get my hands on it!

I wanted to read this book to begin with because the story sounded amazing, AND THEN everyone freaked out about how good it was. Now I’m feeling some hardcore #fomo. I have this bookmarked in my Hoopla account, so it’s gonna be happening soon dammit!

Somehow I didn’t know this series existed until I became a blogger and now that I know about it, I MUST READ IT!! From skimming over the description, it sounds like everything I love in one book, so like, what’s wrong with me?????? Also bookmarked in my Hoopla account. MWAHAHAHA!!

Fun Fact! I FREAKING LOVE VERONICA MARS!! Best. Show. Ever. When I heard there were books based in the same universe, I flipped a nut! I’ve been wanting to read this one for a while and just haven’t gotten around to it, which makes no sense because I NEED MY LOGAN/VERONICA FIX!!

One of my best friends is a lover of the Losers comics and she’s been harassing me to read them for ages. I’m a total lover of the movie (please do yourself a favor and watch it if you haven’t. Chris Evans singing “Don’t Stop Believin” pretty much made my life.) and I know I would love the comics too.
6. The Diviners

This book has been recommended to me so many times that I’ve lost count and the story sounds soooo interesting! I keep telling myself that I’ll start after I’ve finished the Gemma Doyle series, but that hasn’t happened yet. I gotta get a move on!!
I KNOW, WHAT’S WRONG WITH ME GUYS?!?! I’m soooo terrified of this book. Not only is it’s large size intimidating, but I just know that once I start I won’t be able to think of anything else until I finish it. It will eat me alive and consume my brain until it’s over and I get through Lord of Shadows. AND THEN I’ll have to wait FOREVER for Queen of Air and Darkness!!! UGH.
When I learned that The Book of Dust was going to be set in the same universe, I immediately wanted to reread the original series. I read this trilogy SO LONG ago that everything is a little too fuzzy around the edges and I need to brush up before I dive into his new book!
WHY HAVEN’T I READ THIS BOOK YET?? I DON’T KNOW, WHAT’S WRONG WITH ME?!?!?! Someday soon I will read this and get on here, yelling about how amazing it is, and you guys will just give me the hand and kick me off the internet.

This is another series I didn’t know existed until I started blogging. And strangely, I only discovered it when I started looking for Raven Cycle fan art on Tumblr. I have no idea why fanart for The Foxhole Court started showing up in my Raven Cycle searches, but I’m intrigued enough to give it a try. I’ll just pretend that the cover doesn’t make my eyes bleed.
TALK TO ME
