Ten Books that Went Unread in 2017 - Top Ten Tuesday on Reading List



If you are at all book person, I’m guessing you see those amazing lists of books you need to read if…

If you want to read the book before the movie,
If you want to read the book before the next in the series,
If you liked ____, then you’ll like,
 
You know?

And thanks to Pinterest these lists are like 40 books long any more. 



Ten Books that Went Unread in 2017 - Top Ten Tuesday on Reading List



In my case, I blink and my wish list of books to read (also my complete TBR) grows exponentially.

It might be a problem…


Anyway, in an attempt to fix this problem, I set a two-book reading goal each month – each month’s TBR. And then I try to join in a couple buddy reads – where you read a book with someone to chat about all the feels as they unfold (like a book club but more cool… or maybe it’s less cool… it doesn’t matter).  Then a friend suggests a read-a-thon or challenge and I jump in…

And somehow I never read those first two books…





10 Books that Went Unread in 2017



1. Illusion by Martina Boone – I had this in my one week challenge back in July 2017, and well it’s still not read…
2. Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge – Again this was in that one week challenge… but I have it on deck right now… honestly I do!
3. Dividing Eden by Joelle Charbonneau – I mentioned a ton of book series that I wanted to read during the summer, but didn’t even pick this up…
4. The Zookeeper’s Wife by Diane Ackerman – So this has been sitting on my TBR for years… I wanted to pick it up last year because of the movie and all… but, it just sits here…
5. Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo – I mean I did finish Six of Crows last year, so I will be getting to one soon, real soon… hopefully… maybe…
6. Behind the Scenes by Jen Turano – Alright, this was on my Summer 2017 TBR – and while I did a great job with that list, this one still sits unread, and I’m not sure when I’ll get to it… I haven’t been feeling historical fiction in a while…
7. Siren’s Fury by Mary Weber – and Siren’s Song really… I loved book one, and the cover art is so pretty, and I adore the font of the spines… maybe this will be my year since last year wasn’t…
8. Starfall by Melissa Landers – I read book one – Starflight – and really enjoyed it – I’m not huge deep space person, but this was fun, and predictable… like sci-fi meets Hallmark movies… and I enjoyed it, but I haven’t gotten to book two…even though I’ve grabbed it form the library a few times now.
9. Ash & Bramble by Sarah Prineas – I am not sure for how long I’ve been wanting to pick this duology up…
10. The Chemist by Stephanie Meyer – I got this from the library when it was first released, and I was so excited but I never even got to open it and I’ve been distracted since then.. I will have to try again soon!

Do you also suffer from this issue of wanting to read more and more books?  Or are you good about picking up a book, and finishing it before even looking to see what else is out there to read???
