Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that was created over at The Broke and the Bookish! I really love this topic because there are so many books I meant to read in 2017! I am going to hold myself accountable and finally take the time to read these books this year. There are some books on this list that I have been wanting to read for years!
American Gods by Neil Gaiman
I am so ashamed! I have put this book on every TBR and I still have yet to read it. I truly have no excuses or reasons as to why I have not picked it up. I did manage to read my first Neil Gaiman novel in 2017, and really enjoyed it, so I have a little bit more motivation to give it a go.
East of Eden by John Steinbeck
John Steinbeck wrote my favourite novel and East of Eden is often considered to be his best novel. I have started it and it is so beautifully written. I want to read it when I have a chance to really dedicated myself to it. I am hopeful that I will get to it this summer!
Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
I read Illuminae this year and was blown away by it. I wanted to pick up Gemina right away but I just never did! I have now decided to read it closer to the release date of Obsidio.
Golden Son by Pierce Brown
Much like Illuminae and Gemina, I read Red Rising and absolutely loved it but never picked up the second book in the series. Everyone says that Golden Son is even better than Red Rising so I can not wait to see where the story goes and what happens to my precious characters.
The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
At this point I feel like I am the only person who has yet to read The Handmaid’s Tale. Margaret Atwood is a Canadian treasure, and I can not believe I have not read one of her books. I also want to read it before I watch the show. I know this book is heavy so I have to emotionally prepare myself.
The Children’s Crusade by Ann Packer
I have owned this book for many years now. It was totally a cover by and I have not heard anyone talk about it but it sounds interesting! I always plan on picking it up but then I end up buying another book and this one gets pushed back. I am not going to let that happen this year!
Britt-Marie Was Here by Fredrik Backman
I discovered a love for Fredrik Backman in 2017 but I have yet to read this book! It sounds so charming and I know that I am going to adore it. I know that I will read this book this year!
Three Wishes by Liane Moriarty
Liane Moriarty’s book are such page turners and so fun to read. I am saving this book for when I am in a reading slump because her books always manage to pull me out of it. I know nothing about this book and that is how I like to go in to her novels.
Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys
I thoroughly enjoy reading WWII fiction so I know that it quite ridiculous that I have not read Salt to the Sea. Everyone seems to really enjoy it, and I do not think that I have ever read a bad review.
The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden
The Bear and the Nightingale was on so many fellow blogger’s favourite books of the year lists and it makes me so mad that I didn’t read it in 2017! It sounds exactly like the kind of book that I enjoy and I just know that it is going to become a favourite! Maybe in a weird way that is why I have been putting it off? I do not want to be disappointed!
Have you read any of these books and if so, are they worth my time? Let me know!
