Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books I Meant to Read in 2017 But Didn’t

Top Ten TuesdayTop Ten Tuesday is an original blog meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is “Ten Books We Meant To Read In 2017 But Didn’t Get To (and totallyyyy plan to get to in 2018!!).” I love the optimism in this week’s topic. There is never enough time to read all the books you want to, but you always have that hope that you’ll find some way to do so. There are a ton of books I meant to read in 2017, but just ran out of time. I’m very much hoping to get to at least these ten before this new year is over. Covers are linked to Goodreads.


Did you read any of these in 2017? What did you think? Feel free to convince me in the comments to pick up any of these asap. Be sure leave a link to your own TTT post, so I can visit.

  1. ‘Dimple’ 100% SHOULD have made my list especially since that was a book I really wanted to read this past year. Alas, I didn’t accomplish this. Here’s hoping 2018 I do. 🙂 One I did sneak in at the end of the year was “Warcross” and I ended up really liking it. 🙂

      • Dimple is a YA book that has caught my attention (you know I don’t usually read YA) because it’s about Indians and arranged marriage. I used to work with an Indian woman who chose to marry a man from Tennessee, but her sister’s marriage was arranged.

        • To be honest, I see the benefits in it. American culture has jacked up our way of thinking about relationships, love, sex, appearances, etc. that arranged marriage could really be beneficial helping us make a connection and commit to DEVELOPING it over a lifetime instead of assuming we need to find someone sexy and immediately feel love (like in the movies) or it’s not “real.” I’m assuming everyone is of age and consents freely–which is often the problem with arranged marriage because the person’s involved may be too young and/or hasn’t consented.

  2. I also wanted to read Now I Rise and I’m still keen to do so. I’ve read three off your list. They were all good. City of Brass, The Beautiful Ones and The Fallen Kingdom -which is a great finish to the series.

  3. I am in the same boat with Now I Rise! I actually have a copy and I was going to finish it in 2017 and then it never happened. I’ve heard so many good things about City of Brass that I’m looking forward to reading it. Do you have any particular favourite book on this list that you’re looking forward to getting to?

  4. Great list! I had When Dimple Met Rishi on my list as well. I am planning to read it in February though, finally! I just got the Warcross e-book on sale a few days ago and I can’t wait to read it. History Is All You Left Me was pretty good.

  5. I’ve only read three of these: When Dimple Met Rishi, History is All You Left Me, and Our Dark Duet. I definitely recommend reading ODD, since I assume you’ve already read This Savage Song. I’ll admit that I didn’t love it quite as much as the first book, but I still gave it 5 stars! Dimple was suuuper cute, so I also recommend that one. I did like HIAYLM, but not as much as They Both Die in the End.
    Here’s my list: 😊

  6. OH man so many on here I didn’t get to as well *hides face in shame* although I can say History is All You Left Me was one of my favorite books from 2017 so I would definitely recommend prioritizing it. Adam Silvera is a wonderful writing and it’s partly based on his experience with OCD.

  7. The only one of these I’ve actually read was When Dimple Met Rishi and I felt so bad because I didn’t really like it, and everyone else did. I’m dying to read The Beautiful Ones, though – it sounds so good and I absolutely love the author!
