As it is coming towards the end of the year now (yikes!) it means we all need to start thinking about those books that we’ve been meaning to get to all year, or possibly years, that we DEFINITELY will get to in 2017. I’m without a doubt someone who always, always puts off reading books, thinking i’ll get to it eventually, 2017 is not my year for that! I will tackle those books i’ve been meaning to read for a long time, and here are the top 5 books that i want to get to.
Us by David Nicholls
I’ve had Us on my TBR list for about 2 years now, ever since i heard about its release. I adore David Nicholls writing style and the stories he’s written in the past, to be completely honest, i’m disappointed in myself that i haven’t gotten around to this yet. I will most likely get to it in 2017, i cannot make any promises obviously because i’ve slacked for so long.
Vicious by V.E. Schwab
I own so many V.E. Schwab books I’m literally drowning in them, however I’ve not read a single one. Yes I know that people rave and rave over these novels, I just haven’t gotten around to reading them yet! I practically have everything ever written by Schwab now, so I literally don’t have any excuse to not pick one up. 2017 will be the year!
The Chaos Walking Trilogy by Patrick Ness
I completely fell in love with Patrick Ness in the last few years. I’ve spent a lot of my time reading (and crying) to his novels, so figured i should pick up the Chaos Walking series a little while ago. Well guess who still hasn’t read it? I’m so very excited to start reading this series as well, i’ve just not had the chance to pick up three lengthy novels recently. I will eventually get it done, lets hope that is 2017.
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
Red Queen has been talked about for months online. Since i purchased the first book when it was released, it’s turned in to a complete series. I’ve just bought the second book in hope that it will kick me up the arse to read it. One of my goals for 2017 was to read things that were out of my comfort zone, Red Queen is definitely that.
Six Of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Keeping on my theme of stepping out of my comfort zone in 2017, i really should get around to reading Six Of Crows and Crooked Kingdom. I feel like i’ve now completely missed the boat on this series now. I’ve let it go too far and i’ve still not started it. I really hoped to get it read in 2016, but with being so busy/ill/full of reading slumps, i never managed it. I did read Shadow and Bone this year and loved it, so starting the next Leigh Bardugo adventure should be good!
